Encounter three of Arts Project Australia’s up-and-coming artists. Emerging artists James MacSporran, Samraing Chea and Rebecca Scibilia overlap in their collective muse on urban culture and landscape whilst diverging in individual style and tone.
James MacSporran / From the Streets: MacSporran (1970) is an emerging artist working primarily in painting and drawing on paper and canvas. In the Streets explores his imaginative blending of abstraction and graffiti, conjuring references to mazes, street art and old-style arcade games.
Samraing Chea / Spot Exhibition: Chea (1995) is an emerging artist who works predominantly with colour and grey lead pencil, his work containing humorous and startling social commentary. In Spot Exhibition, Chea draws inspiration from commerce, politics, urban landscapes and social environments.
Rebecca Scibilia / Japan and Mash: Scibilia (1980) is a Melbourne-based artist who utilises a variety of media, sourcing her imagery from a range of popular culture items. Throughout Japan and Mash, Scibilia weaves depictions of journeys in Japan, characterised by bold texta colour and assured pattern making.
