Matthew Johnson‘s collaboration with Gary Bigeni for his Spring/Summer 13/14 collection will be on show and available to purchase at the MLC Centre pop up shop in Sydney.
Sydney ‘It’ blog ‘Eat Drink Play‘ have beautifully described Matthew Johnson’s work and the collection – “Having a deep appreciation for fine art, I’ve been following artist Matthew Johnson’s work for years. I first set eyes on his work at Olsen Irwin Gallery, having stopped dead in my tracks by one of his paintings you simply can’t look away, it’s like an optical illusion. A chroma combination of brightly coloured dots weave forward and back until you feel literally entranced inside the canvas. The experience of looking at his work could be likened to being stuck inside a kaleidoscope…it’s simply mesmerizing. Add one seriously quirky and incredibly talented fashion designer, Gary Bigeni, into the mix and you have yourself a polkadot party.” – Ellie Waterhouse
