Paint What You Hear


It was an Exhibition on 2nd October 2012
Run by lead artist Erica Rasmussen at ArtPlay.
There was also a band performance.

IT was a simple yet fun exhibition.  All we had to do, is paint along to the music.

Say, if it was sweet, smooth classical music, you paint a stroke something like this:

smooth brush stroke - paint what you hear

Or if it was crazy, full-on heavy metal, you would paint this:

statacato prush movement - paint what you hear

or if it was something in-between, you would paint a brush stroke like so:

inbetween brush stroke - paint what you hear!!!

Here are a few pictures from the paint what you hear exhibition:

The Art Of The Brick


The Art Of The Brick

I went with my family to this exhibition of Lego Art on the 24th of September 2011. It was by Nathan Sawaya – former lawyer turned Lego Artist.

We saw some impressive sculptures and portraits made of Lego bricks. Quite a few of these were based on “The Thinker” sculpture originally made by the artist Auguste Rodin – showing a man deep in thought. Other sculptures included fruit, weather, animals and people. One interesting sculpture was of a man falling off the edge of a building.

There was also a fabulous Lego construction of the City of Melbourne done by the Melbourne Lego User Group (MUG) – featuring some well known landmarks.

After we saw the gallery of Nathan’s Lego art we were inspired to do some Lego art ourselves downstairs.

Here are some pics:

My favourite one was this globe.

My brother Josh – as a Lego Ninjago. "Why did you put your hand in there Josh?"^^

Mum's version of "The Thinker". Very colourful!

Dad's version of "The Thinker". He must be working out while thinking – so like Dad!

Mum's Lego Landscape "3 Tree Island".

Joshua's Donut Tower.

This exhibition is touring around the world. You can see more of Nathan’s work at
