PNG’s first female solo exhibition

The exhibition, set for one night only, will be held at the Royal Papua Yacht Club on November 14. 

Fifty works of art, studies and techniques culminate for the first time a large body of work shown by a single Papua New Guinean female artist in PNG.

Rolf Harris likeness removed from Melbourne mural celebrating Australian icons

The 50-metre mural on the side of the historic Dimmeys building in the inner suburb of Richmond features dozens of portraits of famous Australians.

Dimmeys commissioned artist Hayden Dewar to paint the mural in 2003 in celebration of the department store's 150th anniversary.

Dewar said the disgraced entertainer's depiction in the mural had been on his mind since Harris was convicted of indecent assault in 2014.

Incredible paintings that actually breathe

The Los Angeles-based artist creates mind-boggling works of art on a walking, talking canvas: humans.

​She paints directly onto the bodies and faces of models, using brushstrokes and shadows to camouflage figures into their background, turning a 3D scene into a 2D 

She then captures each incredible illusion in a series of photographs. Her newest collection features actress Dominika Juillet posing for a 12-image calendar series. The project was inspired by vintage American pin-up posters.
