On 10th March Amar Stewart will be showcasing his work at LAVA Gallery. Amar will present a collection of his new studio work, encompassing the mediums of watercolour, pencil and spray paint.
Amar Stewart is the Founder and Creative Director of the Aum Brand clothing line. He is also developing a reputation as a gifted proponent of photo-realistic graffiti. But as this show will demonstrate, Amar is a well-rounded artist who is not afraid to explore other mediums. Amar’s friend Joe Holtham summed up his work beautifully:
”Amar’s work is all about progression for me. I have been there from the start, the dark days……heavy metal mixed up with Horror movies and Asian females. Some of his early works scare the hell out of me.
His latest stuff has evolved so much, what he can do with a can of 94 is insane. Contrasting and realistic is how I see his work now, he captures every detail…and at a pace too. The monochrome palettes he uses project simplicity, its only when you get close that you realise the level of detail and the effort to capture and reflect his muse…The details take you captive”
The opening party on 10th March is sponsored by Tiger Beer.
Amar Stewart at LAVA Gallery, 10-17th March. Open daily; 11am-7pm. Sundays; 12-6pm.
