Presentation/demonstration from an EMERGING CANBERRA ARTIST TOMMY BALOGH
NOTE CHANGE FROM 24th JUNE
Usual Time 2.30 pm in the Studio. We have the honour of a presentation/demonstration from an EMERGING CANBERRA ARTIST TOMMY BALOGH Tommy Balogh is a rapidly rising multi-disciplinary artist from Canberra, Australia. His work is represented and collected both nationally and internationally. Balogh fuses fluid abstract painting and light art to create a new beast in his futuristic and photo-luminescent artworks that elicit an immediate emotional response. His work is described as ‘transformative’ and takes fluid art to places not seen before. In partnership with fellow creative Gabriel Gaha, they together have endeavored to bring thought provoking art projects and experiences by transforming conventional spaces into places of wonder. Balogh works in an unconventional studio space at the Citywest Carpark, where he has the freedom to create large-format works and test his ideas.
Balogh emerged from the Australian art scene following his landmark exposition at the renowned Nishi Gallery in Canberra, Australia, in 2016 where he unveiled his 12m photo-luminescent Voyage: Fingerprints of Consciousness during his first major solo VOYAGE, that became a symbol for the next progression in contemporary art. A new era was born.
Balogh, later in that year was invited by the founders of VIVID light festival for a 2 month residency at the hallowed Studio Kybra in Germany, and invited as a VIP artist to Berlin’s No 1 art fair: Positions. In 2018 Balogh had his first private commission in Zhengzhou China, appeared at TOAF Sydney with his custom 5m Enigma artwork and is currently working with Australian architects Turco and Associates. His focus is to fuse the concepts of architecture and his new visual art to inform immersive spaces that aim to inspire, elevate our minds and reconnect us to a higher state of consciousness.
Please bring along a plate of afternoon tea to share if you are able. Surnames A – K.
