We are super please to announce our fifth artist in resident is now confirmed. NEWSO will be joining us from the UK this November to spend summer in The Butcher Shop studios.

British artist Dan Newso has a mixed background of fine art and graffiti; in the last 8 years he has been engaging his local community in Birmingham's post-industrial creative quarter Digbeth painting large murals in public spaces. In this time he has also exhibited his work in Europe, America and Brazil and painted commissioned murals for a variety of international clients.

In his acrylic pieces combining figurative with abstract content, he often paints glitch and collage effects and makes use of negative space to show a history of the surface,incorporating existing features when painting bare walls or sheets of concrete board.

Newso's visit to us from the UK is supported by Arts Council England. This residency is part of an international development project to widen his audience and develop his practice, he hopes to collaborate with other artists and learn more about working and painting in WA.
