One man who continues to make us love art on a wall, is Shida. Over the years we’ve been following him, Shidas work has gone from strength to strength, and every new piece he puts up is grander than the last.
Just as grand though, is when he puts on an exhibition – and, with this one, it looks like he’s going to be pulling out some almightily cool stops at Brisbanes Blake House gallery.
"In early 2012 Brisbane artist Shida embarked on an international tour determined to make his mark on the world’s street art scene. Painting monumental murals in his signature dynamic style he collaborated with some of the most talented street artists across the globe. A gestural climax of colour and ecstatic line surges through his mystifying imagery, allowing viewers a glimpse of a sublime, pulsating paradise. Shida has ignited his career with local and international acclaim; his ongoing success in the art world is testament to his relentless creative spirit.
Shida’s signature style transitions from the street to the gallery for a series of shows across the world, beginning in his home town of Brisbane Australia.
Blake House Gallery will play host to an all encompassing show featuring refined paintings, sculpture and conceptual installations.
The “Spirits” exhibit will Throughout 2013 Shida will continue to tour the world with his works being shown in some of the most highly regarded contemporary and modern art galleries in both group and solo shows.
