Gallery Exhibition: Solaris Shariati

27/06 - 01/07 : 6:00pm

Our new visual art exhibition this week is from artist Solaris Shariati. A selection of their works will be on display and available for purchase in the Gallery Lounge from Tuesday 26th June until Saturday 1st July.

Meet Solaris (@beeanboyy), a 19 year old trans artist who has created intricate blue ballpoint pen drawings of European architecture and natural beauty.

While his drawings may have a certain level of spontaneity and playfulness that might remind some viewers of high school sketches, the intricacy and attention to detail in his work demonstrate his skill and dedication as an artist.
In addition to his visual art, Solaris has also explored his creativity through writing and aspires to work as a director in the future. Recently, Solaris performed a monologue in the show “Stories From The Heart”, run by ATYP and Wear it Purple, under Sydney World Pride, where he shared his experience as a half Persian, half Kurdish queer person growing up in Australia, while feeling deeply connected to queer people not only in Iran but all queer people around the world.
The free Exhibition Launch will be from 5pm on Tuesday 26th June, so come along and enjoy the first look at the stunning works alongside our brand new weekly house cocktail menu… and then stick around for our Tuesday evening Live Jazz in the space from 7:30!
