22-year-old, Australian artist Hilton Owen had his first solo show at age 17 and has kept his momentum going with 8 more solo shows under his belt over the last 5 years. His distinct abstract figurative style sets him apart and makes him a definite “one to watch”.
“I paint what I see around me. The physical union of individuals with objects that occur in my paintings suggests that although the individuals are in control of the objects – a car, an I-pod, an office desk – we are also paradoxically controlled by the objects.”
If you are in Australian you can see his latest body of work in his upcoming solo show at Friends of Leon Gallery. Continue below for more info.
