Melbourne based multi-disciplinary artist and much loved ex Truly Deeply Designer Sahil Silk Roy is opening his very first solo show ‘Surface Tension’ at BSIDE Gallery in Fitzroy tonight and we as proud as punch for him.
Silk Roy’s confidence as an artist, after painting hundreds of walls locally and also in NYC, LA and New Mexico and showing in multiple group shows locally and nationally over the past ten years has grown exponentially as he has pursued his artistic goals with harmonious determination.
Silk Roy likes to describe his work as “fancy grown-up art by Silky” but the crew at BSIDE prefer this explanation…
“Inspired by Melbourne’s historical heritage, Silk Roy embraces our modern, creative metropolis by imbuing temporary, surficial compositions with his foundational graffiti ethos. Having successfully transitioned his spray-painted aesthetic into the emotive realm of abstract expressionism in recent years, Silk Roy’s obsession with style has, over time, evolved his work to laconically embrace the global Graffuturism movement, whilst still retaining its own individualistic flourish.”
With over 22 pieces in the exhibition this is a show sure to impress. If you are interested in checking out some “fancy grown-up art” and supporting one of Melbourne’s emerging artists head Northside and join him tonight Friday 23 June at the opening of Surface Tension at BSIDE Gallery, 121 Brunswick St, Fitzroy, from 6 – 9pm, and if you can’t make it tonight the show runs until 2nd July 2017.
