Using an unconventional photographic practice, artist Daniel ‘Ears’ O’Toole has captured a series of images on 35mm colour film, applying a two-stage process to deliberately distort form and figure, before reproducing them as paintings.
From Tuesday, 23 May to Thursday, 25 May, you can witness Daniel ‘Ears’ O’Toole’s unconventional art practice in person. It’s a rare chance to see one of Australia’s best contemporary street artists live paint, producing portraits of Ruby Bourne (a Sydney-based electronic music producer, singer and composer), and Cayenne Barnum (a painter, illustrator and model) in his distinctive style, merging and distorting the painterly with the photographic. Be at Liberty Place in Sydney from 10am until 5pm daily to see the large-scale murals come to life.
