To coincide with hosting the remount season of his hit comedy show “300 Paintings in Lockdown”, Meraki is proud to have a selection of visual art from Sam Kissajukian on display in our Gallery Lounge!

Currently residing in Sydney, Sam has been working professionally as a stand-up comedian for 10 years.

Recently Sam has had a breakout year as a visual artist. Within 3 months of going public with his art he had numerous acquisitions by international collectors, received extensive media coverage about his art, exhibitions at 107 Projects and a solo exhibition in Perth for which 25 of his works were later acquired by City of Perth at Yagan Square to display on LCD screens for the month of August. After the success of these first exhibitions, he has now been invited to hold another exhibition at the Brisbane Powerhouse in May 2023.

Camille Macpherson Dewell (She/Her)

 

I acknowledge the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, the traditional custodians of the country on which I stand.

 

Currently studying at the National Art School in Darlinghurst I am lucky enough to experiment with a multitude of different mediums however in this exhibition I am displaying the works that are a bit closer to my heart. All of the works come from my passions and interests in my life with a focus on natural history, exploring scientific and botanical illustrations as well as my lifelong love of fantasy and storytelling. These are all done using fine liners and are mostly done using pointillism; which is a technique that I have been working with for the past 6 years.
