Artist Jack Irvine will bring his travelling gallery to Thirroul on Wednesday June 14.
Jack’s “Art Show in the Back of a Truck’ started in Melbourne and is making its way up the east coast through to QLD, where it will finish up later this month. But in the meantime, he’s stopping by the Northern Illawarra, parking his truck near Finbox 6pm-9pm.
“I’d love people to stick their heads in and have a look- and a drink,” he says. “It’s going to be great fun.”
Jack says it’s more than just an ordinary truck. “It’s a full-on gallery,” he says. “It’s got proper walls and lighting. It’s getting a great response. Everyone loves the idea, and the truck!”
He’ll have on display his latest selection of works on metal as well as screen prints and t-shirts.
Originally from The Shire, Irvine produces a unique style of art which pays homage to Reg Mombassa, Ken Done and Ozzie Wright.
He’s responsible for all the artwork for the band Skeggs and also works for surf brand Misfit.
According to his website, Jack’s works are ‘confronting visions populated by a myriad cast of the absurd and outrageous, parodying and rebelling against the very fabric of our modern paradigm without apologies. They’ll make you look again and again as the stories keep unfolding.’
Irvine’s Gallery is ‘Space 44’ in Cronulla- which is a creative space and gallery, and also home tot he music festival ‘Sounds of the Suburbs’.
