When it comes to doing duo shows, Megan Dell and Nicole Tattersall, are, ioho, right up there. Their individual styles are superb, and when combined in a show together they produce a swath of subtle pizzazz that emanates from the walls. Both have a great following of fans, and both are great artists – this is yet another great addition to the For Walls gallery line up for 2011, and it’ll be a fun night at the opening, that’s for sure.
We had a great interview with Nicole Tattersall last year, and we’re really looking forward to catching up with Megan Dell as well …
“Following on from their successful duo exhibition at No Vacancy Gallery last year, Megan Dell and Nicole Tattersall have once again teamed up to bring you DRIP, which will see both artists exploring spray-paint drips, runny water-colours, and wash painting.
Both Megan and Nicole have a street-art background, and are influenced by surfing and skateboarding, which is visible in the unique pieces they create.
The artworks in the exhibition will be in a variety of mediums and methods from stenciling to illustrations, as well as the materials being painted on. Megan often recycles skateboards and pieces of wood found in hard-rubbish piles, turning them into her canvas and working with their ingrained, weather-beaten character. Nicole often paints on broken surfboards, as well as salvaged timber, creating unique pieces with an environmentally-conscious theme.”
