Melbourne Festival, Arts Victoria and Yarra Trams have announced the second year of the Melbourne Art Trams project, a public art project that transforms Melbourne’s iconic trams into moving works of art travelling across the city.
This year, Manyung Gallery represented artist, Janine Daddo, is one of eight artists chosen to adorn the Yarra Trams network as part of the visual arts program of Melbourne Festival. Artworks will be generated as digital images which will be outputted onto adhesive vinyl and applied to the trams.
Janine has enjoyed over 15 years as a successful and much-loved, popular artist. She has held sell-out shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Darwin and has enjoyed international market success exhibiting in Singapore, Hong Kong and the United States.
It’s not difficult to see just why so many have been captivated by Janine’s seductive colours, freedom of forms and tantalising textures. Her work pulsates with a natural exuberance for life and represents the most significant aspects of life: love, family, happiness and excitement of everyday life.
‘I think love is an emotion that ties the universe together.’ – Janine Daddo
Melbourne Art Trams is a revival of the Victorian Government’s popular Transporting Art project that ran between 1978 and 1993,and saw 36 of Melbourne’s W-class trams completely repainted by some of Australia’s most renowned artists, including Mirka Mora, Howard Arkley and Michael Leunig. The 2014 Melbourne Art Trams will feature in the visual arts program of this year’s Melbourne Festival, which runs from 10 to 26 October. They will remain on the tracks until April 2015.
Janine’s next solo exhibition will be held at Manyung Gallery Mt Eliza in November.
