Daimon Downey: Solo Exhibition


Iconic Australian artist Daimon Downey will be showing Shapes imagined from decisions made in solitude – a solo exhibition of 70 paintings, sculptures and ceramics for three days 9—11 November 2017, with the opening evening on the 9 November at 6pm.


Each iconic piece of art has been painted over the past year at Daimon's Bondi Beach studio, with a theme of ones search for balance in form and colour. Unlike his past incarnations as pop artist for Sneaky Sound System and bar owner of Sydney’s elite night spot – Pelicano – Daimon’s studio is a reclusive space where all decisions are ultimately made alone – however with a mood exclusively reserved for happiness, excitement and positivity.

Each painting and piece of art has been internalised, with the shapes and colours forged into compositions that have balance whilst incorporating a playfulness that is both engaging, and mysterious. Daimon says that each works title is an elusive game that bears no exact connection to the work yet should have the viewer finding their unique relevance to each. Says Damon: "I want you to feel free of fear and shock with my art. The world is becoming a strange, confusing and almost shocking place. I hope to give you comfort and enable one to lose themselves in a safe place. We all like to escape from life. For me this is found in the process of painting without boundary or pure subject matter. Each of my works are tended to be lived with, worlds that will supply their owners a window for safety, pleasure and escape".

The collection is priced from $500—$3500 pc. For more information, high res imagery or interview opportunities, please contact
