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.

Uncle Harold

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.
