'Brave New World' | David Hayes

Opening Night: Friday 11th November, 6 - 8pm
Artist Talk: Saturday 12th November, 2pm

2022 Sunshine Coast Art Prize Finalist David Hayes presents his third solo exhibition at Mitchell Fine Art in Fortitude Valley from Nov 8th.

Following on from two sellout solo exhibitions, David Hayes tells his story – a chronological depiction of life events at a point in time during the Covid-19 pandemic. Through his paintings, Hayes examines the relationship between the global and the personal; strength and vulnerability and how they are linked.

David Hayes is a Brisbane artist who works in acrylic and resin. His work is rooted in pop culture stylistically but explores the changing themes of masculinity via metaphors and juxtapositions of theme, colour and work titles. His content draws heavily on metaphorical objects to layer deeper questions and narratives as they relate to the human condition and negotiating current world events.

Some of his influences include traditional figures of the pop art movement including Warhol, Lichtenstein and Ramos, yet he continues to evolve the style with influences of current artists such as Kehinde Wiley, Richard Philips and Jeff Koons.

David Hayes has been a finalist in numerous art prizes including the Sunshine Coast Art Prize,Blake Art Prize, Mosman Art Prize, Gallipoli Art Prize, and the Brisbane Portrait Prize.
