Rosa Morte by Uncle Harold
6 - 30 April 2019 - Boys' High
Rosa Morte is a new exhibition from Christchurch artist Josh Bradshaw, aka Uncle Harold.
Uncle Harold specialises in graphic pieces and his self-taught style is often described as “drippy”.
He transforms everyday objects with a cartoon appearance, bright colours and his “drippy” style.
Being a skateboarder for more than 10 years, Uncle Harold draws most of his style and inspiration from things he sees in skate magazines and videos and board graphics.
Skateboarders have a relaxed, do-it-yourself ethos, and that attitude has transferred to his art practice as he is self-taught and does not follow any specific rules in his work.
The process and style he uses reflects his personal attitude towards art; it doesn’t take itself too seriously, it’s fun.
He says that if he’s not having fun then he’s doing it wrong.
Dates: Saturday 6 April to Tuesday 30 April 2019, with an opening event on Friday 5 April at 6.00pm.
Times: 10.00am to 6.00pm
Venue: Absolution, Ground floor, Boys’ High building, 28 Worcester Boulevard.
