Enex Welcomes Linton & Kay Galleries.
Here at enex, we strive to bring the people of Perth a stimulating dose of the unexpected – whether it’s through coveted fashion, authentic cuisine or eclectic activations. From August 1st , visitors to the centre can view and discover bespoke works from local, national and international artists with an exclusive pop-up gallery from Linton & Kay.
Since it’s inception in 1998, Linton & Kay Galleries have become synonymous with Perth art. Known for their carefully curated exhibitions, wide breadth of featured artists and impeccable presentation, the galleries refuse to be constrained by convention – inviting both artists and observers alike to unleash their creativity and wonder.
Featured this month – Johnny Romeo
Armed with tongue-in-cheek humour and razor-sharp social commentary, Johnny Romeo explores the influence of celebrity icons and brand-name heroes of our contemporary identity. Romeo approaches his art-making practice like a television, broadcasting colourful Postmodern visions that seek to re-contextualise and make sense of the daily cacophony of images, ads and memes that we are bombarded with in our Pop-obsessed culture. Over the last decade, Johnny Romeo has enjoyed a successive number of critically acclaimed and sold-out exhibitions across Australia, New Zealand and the US. 2016 and early 2017 have seen Romeo continue his dominance as a world-class Pop artist, with sell-out exhibitions in Perth, Sydney and Pennsylvania, and a highly celebrated feature in Brisbane’s Sign of the Times group exhibition, alongside street art juggernauts such as Banksy, Blek le Rat and Swoon. A major force in contemporary Pop art, Romeo is represented by many top galleries both in Australia and overseas. Romeo’s works are highly sought-after globally, and are held in prominent Australian and international public and private collections, most recently featured in enex Perth.
