New original artwork by Chris Nielsen for ‘Slax Appeal‘, opening at Lamington Drive tonight!  Artworks clockwise from top left – ‘Slax Appeal’, ‘Garden Variety’, ‘Junk 4 Sail’ and ‘Katmandu’.

Sydney based illustrator extraordinaire Christopher Nielsen is a bit of a fave around here.

You might recognise Chris’ unique illustration style from the TDF 2012 Calendar – his cluttered bookshelf illustration recently won Silver in The Illustrators Australia awards 2011, and was also selected for The Society of Illustrators 54th Annual Exhibition in New York this year. WOO HOO!! Truly deserving recognition for an incredible local talent!

Chris Nielsen’s fabulous and AWARD-WINNING illustration for the TDF 2012 Calendar !

Melbourne readers are in luck, as Chris has an opening TONIGHT of his exhibition ‘Slax Appeal‘ at Lamington Drive Gallery in Collingwood. The show features twelve hand cut and painted plywood pieces, which draw inspiration from vintage advertisements and signage.  The rustic, rubbed back layers of these works reflect Chris’ distinctive illustration style.

How CUTE is the ‘Garden Variety’ octopus / strawberry combo above?  Fruit / animal fusion. Genius.

Slax Appeal‘ – opens tonight from 6.00pm – 9.00pm
Exhibition runs from February 24th – April 7th
Lamington Drive
15 – 25 Keele st
Collingwood
