There is something irrepressibly compelling about the lewd animated videos of Wong Ping. Is it their flat surfaces rendered in popping colours? Or their dark narratives that resonate with the deepest recesses of the human psyche? They have been included in an impressive repertoire of group exhibitions in recent years, including One Hand Clapping at...

Adelaide has thrown down the gauntlet for this year's Sydney Biennale with a show that sparkles like a revolving disco ball.
I can't recall an exhibition of contemporary Australian art which has opened with more positive energy than the 2016 Adelaide Biennial: Magic Object.
It's a tour-de-force for the undervalued Australian art scene, and a reminder of one of the reasons we go to art galleries: to experience a sense of wonder.
This may sound banal, but so many shows seek to educate viewers, to raise their consciousness, to engage with social and political issues, that it comes as a surprise to find a body of work that doesn't engage in the rituals of moral blackmail.
Michael Zavros, is a leading Australian artist renowned for his photorealistic drawings and paintings. Following his studies in printmaking at the Queensland College of Art, Brisbane, Zavros has subsequently been awarded The Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award in 2002, The Robert Jacks Drawing Prize in 2005, and the Kedumba Prize in 2007. More recently in 2010 he won the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and in 2012 the inaugural Bulgari Art Prize
Zavros’ impeccable attention to detail is evident throughout his varying range of subject matter which includes staged still-lifes, figures, animals, and lavish clothing and accessories. With works eerily reminiscent of photographs, Zavros’ delicate hand leaves behind little to no trace of visible brushstrokes in his paintings. His work embraces low art or kitsch and repositions it in the realm of luxury with hyper real attention to detail.
Zavros has been the recipient of the Milan studio residency in 2001, the Barcelona studio residency in both 2005 and 2010, and the Australia Council Greene Street Studio, New York, in 2014. The artists solo exhibitions have included Bad Dad at Starkwhite, Auckland (2014), The Good Son: Works on Paper at Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2009), and Everything I Wanted at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane (2003-2004).Michael Zavros’ work is held in numerous collections including at The National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of New South Wales, Art Gallery of South Australia, Queensland Art Gallery, University of Queensland Art Museum, and the Tasmanian Museum and Gallery.
