Zest OS – Australian 3D Artists on tour

It’s often when we’re working overseas that we get to trial new ideas to bring back home.  Winter of 2017 saw Rudy Kistler in Japan, exhibiting 3d anamorphic artworks at MDP Gallery in Tokyo before travelling to Olney, Illinois to create a massive 50m wide x 6m high street art mural.  He’s currently working on a roof top mural for an aged care facility in Nagasaki, Japan.

Andi Mether worked alongside international organisers in the town of Brande, Denmark and at the World Street Painting Festival in Arnhem, Netherlands.  Andi is the Founder of Chalk Urban Art Festival and Chalk The Walk in Australia. She was able to share her expertise with international counterparts, collaborating on ideas and also had the opportunity to run masterclass workshops. Following the festival circuit Andi worked with Jenny McCracken to create commission works for the world class Burgers’ Zoo and the City of Arnhem.

Anton Pulvirenti’s exhibition of new work was a great success at the REDSEA Gallery in Singapore.  The works feature anthropomorphic figures – a mix of man and beast – which relate to the complex nature of the migrant experience in Australia.  This series of works began 8 years ago with Anton exploring the history of his Italian grandfather and other family members arriving in Australia.  Look out for new works of art for sale by Anton and other Zest Artists coming soon to our online store.
