Whats Cooking At The Gallery

Hello Art Lovers.

Do you have a special bond with your pet?

Is your dog your best friend, or your cat a spoiled child?

Is your pet considered another member of the family?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then come on down to the gallery and speak to Cyrille Philippot #petportraits

Cyrille does fantastic portraits of that special member of your family.

I guarantee his portraits will put a smile on any pet lovers face.

Here is the hard working man himself.

Artist Profile: Annette Spanski

Hello art lovers.

We are happy to announce the beginning of a series of artist profiles here on the Blog.

We do this so you can get to know the wonderful and talented artists that make up the community at the Urban Paradise Art Gallery.

First up is a talented artist named
Annette Spanski

Artist Annette Spanski
Gold Coast Artist Annette Spanski signature art is her textured spiral paintings. Each spiral is finished with a unique eye catching centre piece.

My textured art expresses the universal landscape of the spiral, the flow, energy and form of a spiral is limitless. Each painting is an expression of my unique perception of the world, resonating with colour, and respect for the endless cycle of life.

“Generally I like to leave the paintings untitled, says Annette. I enjoy listening to the viewer’s interpretation of the art, its fun letting the new owner or viewer add that last finishing touch to the art work, by giving it a title according to what they see in the piece.”

Annette uses her own blend of custom mixed metallic paints in most of her spiral paintings.
