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.

It was such a fun show and so great to be a part of an all femme group. I had the pleasure of going to San Francisco for opening night and meeting some of the artists and the lovely Dasha. Head to www.spoke-art.com to see the full list of artwork available for sale or email SF@spoke-art.com. The show finishes on Aug 26th at Spoke Art Gallery -816 Sutter St, San Francisco. I have one original left #todolist (acrylic painted on plywood, box framed with Australian hardwood) plus a limited edition giclee print #balance. (See below) Run of 50 only so be quick to snaffle one.

BUSINESS CARDS

I recently had the pleasure of designing these business cards for Melbourne photographer Steen Vestergaard. The brief was to have a retro, old school glamour vibe with a fashion/photographer element. I was thinking Dior, Audrey Hepburn, you know the classics, and came up with several designs.

 Steen being a dream client decided to go with 3 of the designs and then we agreed that letterpress printing would be the best way to go. Ace! The Hungry Workshop did a sterling job of the 2 colour print job and I am super happy with results. Letterpress printing has such a nice tactile quality and hopefully these will stand the test of time through different fashion trends like an old classic.

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!

STORE CLOSED

Big thanks to those of you who ordered prints this year!

The store will actually remain open for the holiday season and orders will be taken but they will not be sent until January 21st. Sorry for any inconvenience! Please email mail@neryl.com with any enquiries.

THE JUNGLE ROOM

There's a new print in the house! The Jungle Room. I've had this girl lurking around but she's finally ready for you in the shop. She prints up big, up to A0 poster size.

Jungle Room

The Jungle Room was my favourite room at Graceland. It was so ridiculously over the top, so I thought she should hang here. More is more, no? Do you think Elvis would approve?

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!
