Nomadic art gallery Temp will be setting up shop this week for their second exhibition of up-and-coming artists.
Opening on Friday and running until February 26, Map of Fun will feature works by artists Marisa Santosa and Karima Baadilla. Aptly named, the exhibition celebrates the relationship between the two artists, who have been friends for 12 years.
Both artists utilise a bold colour palette and sense of playfulness within their work, each with their own distinct point of view.
Santosa, a Perth-based artist, uses a combination of digital and analogue painting techniques, often inspired by music and song lyrics.
Baadilla, based in Victoria, works in both painting and sculpture, with a focus on collaborative art practices. Her pieces explore a sense of community, migrant identity and the narrative of day-to-day life.
Established by art consultant and cultural strategist Kate Parker, Temp’s gallery has no permanent address, instead finding temporary homes in spaces across Perth – with this iteration to be located at 454 William Street, Northbridge.
Temp aims to connect new art collectors with burgeoning artists from across Australia – works are all under $5000, and are across a range of mediums.
