Glitter and Vegas

Obsessing over these amazing artworks by Johnny Niesche shown recently at Minerva, Sydney as part of his ‘Vegas Can Be’ exhibition.

Jonny Niesche is an Australian painter who studied at Sydney College of the Arts, completing his BVA in 2008. This body of work is a crazy mix of minimalism with kitsch elements, it is crafty yet so refined.

Believe it or not, the paintings I have featured below are actually made from graduating layers of glitter! Their surface sparkles and shimmers attracting the viewer like a bower bird, while mesmerizing them by creating an optical illusion. I am also digging that neon edging, the combination of the two is all so Vegas in the most spectacular kind of way!
