One year after their launch, the innovative art group Explicitly Graphic is putting together their second art event. This time, they’re bringing down the house at the White Canvas Gallery in the Fortitude Valley.
Evangeline Cachinero, Tiffany Atkin and Anita Pettinato formed the group last year with the aim to blur the boundaries between fine art and graphic design. Since emerging onto the scene last year, their art careers have seen a steep climb and they’re happy to take some time out to bring you a bigger and better show than last year. With the theme Double Entendre, the exhibition will continue to explore the concept of design as high art.
The three artists are heavily influenced by graphic design each in their own way. Evangeline is a graphic designer and a bit of a creative tornado, always being involved in various art projects. Her mixed media work is figurative, layered and expressive. Tiffany is a graphic designer and illustrator with a love of all things Japan. Her digital art has a sinister/schoolgirl edge and is printed on exciting new mediums. Anita is inspired by retro-pop design and her work “reflects the perfection of the human hand and inspires re-evaluating reliance on digital mediums.” Their art is very different but threaded together by a common love of all things design.
“At the Explicitly Graphic art event you can have a drink, score a goody bag, check out the kick-knack and the mish-mash walls, go into the draw to win one of three original art pieces, listen to some music by DJ Hoola and experience the alternative to an art exhibition.”
