ARTE NA FAVELA: James King @ Santos throughout September
Santos Cafe Ponsonby has always been a great champion of local artists, and their art wall has been part of the vibe since 1996. Many young aspiring artists have become a household name since they first exhibited on Santos’art wall. The Santos art wall is named Arte Na Favela.
Exhibiting in September is artist James King
“Politics, society, freedom of speech and psychological warfare are all elements of my paintings.
After overcoming a wealth of harsh life experiences, my use of shapes, dots, drips and primary colours provide a window into my personal struggle and a statement about New Zealand and the context of the individuals within.
I have been painting for seven years and have had numerous solo and group shows and have also had my work bought by local and international collectors.”
