Join Vinh Van Lam and Stuart Horrex as we celebrate the opening of the latest solo exhibition, Onism by ArtSHINE licensing artist and fashion designer Anthony Van Lam (founder and lead designer, AVL Designs).
Onism is defined as the frustration of being stuck in just one body at a time, unable to experience more than one thing or be in more than one place, knowing that there are a million things you won’t be able to do before the end!
This exhibition also celebrates the launch of Anthony’s newest swimwear and evening wear collections.
At this event Anthony will showcase his own fabric creations featuring his original artworks translated into textiles. Using these textile designs, Anthony is now launching his own unique and inspired swimwear and evening wear collections for 2019/2020.
The stylistic, expressive paintings of Australian artist Anthony Van Lam are as tranquil and magical as they are profound. Working with mixed media on canvas or on paper, Anthony paints a range of subjects and explores how lines, colours, organic shapes, flowers, animals, and surface patterns intersect in unique ways to create form.
With a background in fashion design, Anthony Van Lam has an excellent sense of composition and is able to place objects expertly in the picture plane, finding new meanings in familiar subjects by isolating them and manipulating forms in terms of scale, color, and shadow.
Known for his bold and colourful designs in fashion, Anthony’s paintings reveal his true passion for flowers, immediately eye-catching, and encouraging us to find the magical in the everyday.
