SWELER is an Australian artist based in Melbourne. In his youth he was influenced by and involved in the Street Graffiti scene. From that he exhibited in a number of group shows in Melbourne. After moving to London in 2001 he spent ten years developing his style and working as a freelance artist. Selling works in London and Europe mainly on commissions and by word of mouth. Having a small break from painting Sweler moved back to Melbourne where he is again developing his craft. Today he is working on small paintings, juggling between three different approaches. Unrefined characters, small birds on timber, and birds on patterned landscapes. Currently his medium of choice is acrylic and spray paint on canvas.
Last show with the artist: Group show "Urban Animals".
As we care about environment and about the consequences that our actions can have on animals, we decided to create a show in which we remind people the beauty of our roommates and our planet. As we all know, deforestation is a topic that is getting more and more ignored in the last years, we decided to focus our show on the problems that it creates and we are willing to help the planet as much as we can. That's the reason behind the theme of "Urban Animals", and the mission will be of donating a part of the proceeds to WWF. Our help will consist in donating 1 ectar to the Amazon rainforest for reforestation for every piece sold during the exhibition.
