SPOKE x VERTICAL GALLERY 12 x 12 SHOW

So happy to be asked back to exhibit at Spoke Art as part of their pop up 12 x 12 exhibition at Vertical Gallery in Chicago.

Lots of great artists involved and the only stipulation being that the artwork was to be 12 x 12”. Here’s my piece, ‘We Got The Beat’.

NSFW GROUP SHOW AT SPOKE ART SAN FRANCISCO

I was recently asked to be a part of a group show, NSFW at Spoke Art in San Francisco. The show featured over 40 female and femme identifying artists who explored the topic of female sexuality. The varied works included painting, embroidery, neon and prints. Some of the artists involved were Miss van, Laura Berger, Jessica Hess, Petite Luxures, Jessica So Ren Tang, Winnie Truong, Robin Eisenberg, Meryl Pataky, Sabrina Elliot and more. Dasha Matsuura curated the show and you can read her interview about the show in Juxtapoz magazine here. Plus another interview here.

LEILANI

Aloha! A new print is in the store and somehow I forgot to post it here! Following on from China Girl, this is Leilani, featuring all things Hawaiian. The name was inspired by the Hoodoo Gurus song of the same name, taken from their classic 80’s debut album, Stoneage Romeos. It’s still a fave of mine. Leilani is a Hawaiian name that means heavenly flower.

My great grandfather lived in Hawaii for sometime and came back to Australia to design and build his home inspired by his travels, complete with palm trees. It was a very unusual design for 1905. He named it Hale Mauka (house on the hill) and it still stands today.

She is available in A3 size up to A0 poster size. Shown below holding the A2 size. Head to the shop for more details.

LIVE FASHION DRAWING AT THE MYER WORKROOM

I was asked along with the talented Kat Macleod to sketch fashion outfits live in store for some of Myer Melbourne's customers. It was part of their Autumn Winter 2015 launch in the Myer Workroom created by Gloss Creative. Lucky shoppers (and instagram fans) came along to have their outfit of the day sketched onto an already drawn silhouette created by both of us.

I must confess I was pretty daunted at the thought of drawing live in front of people, (especially when one is used to scribbling away in their own hidey hole), but I am glad that I said yes! It was fun meeting, chatting and drawing everyone's outfits from young kids to adults.

This lady was aahhmazing! So stylish. You don't see enough people wearing hats. We had long chats about her vintage clothes collection (which sounded pretty wild) and well I just thought she was ace and I could have chatted all day. 

It was busy! Four days of non stop drawing and lots of happy customers. Did I mention the customers got to keep the sketch! You can see more on my instagram page @nerylwalker

Thanks to Jacky Winter and Myer Melbourne for having me!

SUCCULENTS GALORE!

This was my entry for the Global Talent search. The brief was to create a piece of Wall Art with 'Little Terrariums' as the theme. it was a pretty open brief but had to include one word of text. I didn't make the cut but you can see the 50 winners (and all other 999 entries) here. There are still 2 rounds of briefs to go to choose one final winner. Good luck to everyone in Round 2!

NEW WEBSITE!

Whoot! Well it is long overdue and finally arrived. A new updated website! Big thanks to my hard working art director/designer hubby @haynsie for helping me create this. A labour of love….non?

My blog will move from http://nerylwalker.blogspot.com.au to here but I will keep it up for the time being.

Glad you could stop by, make a cuppa and stay a while. I love visitors!
