Our walls are the pinterest boards of our souls. What we choose to surround ourselves with on a day-to-day basis in the physical world is deeply reflective of who we are. Whether we adorn the wall beside our bed with photos of family, soothing natural landscapes or swirls of vibrant abstract colour, it’s a way of translating our own interiors.
Decor + Design are delighted to present Wall St again in 2017. This is a dedicated area within the show that fosters small studios, textile designers, photographers and surface artists, giving them the opportunity to network and do business with trade in an informal environment at Australia’s No. 1 Interiors Event.
Take a look at three of the beautiful artists who will be exhibiting from 20 – 23 July on Wall St.
Kieran Stone – Photographer
Kieran Stone’s work is an artistic byproduct of his innate curiosity and wanderlust. His passion to create images was inspired by the places he has visited and the cultures he has come to understand. His photography is a way of translating the splendor and raw emotion of travel, an expression of his thoughts and philosophies.
Explore Kieran’s unique cityscapes and poignant coastal shots at Decor + Design 2017. You can see his work on Wall St at WS11. Kieran also runs Landscape Photography workshops around Melbourne.
Melbourne-based artist Kirsten Jackson studied at RMIT before launching a fulfilling art career. Her abstracts are full of colour and emotion, without self-conscious intention. To Kirsten, abstraction is a way of communicating the ineffable. Colours carry emotion, capture and reflect light. Kirsten has international standing and has held sell out shows in London and Singapore, and was also enthusiastically received in Hamburg, Amsterdam and Stockholm. She has featured in many magazines, including Home Beautiful, the Sun Herald and Modern Home Magazine. Meet Kirsten on Wall St at WS3.
