Vs. Gallery is excited to present a new solo exhibition by UK artist MY DOG SIGHS. With a growing collector base and numerous sold-out exhibitions under his belt, the talented street-artist returns to Australia with an amazing body of new work.
‘Four Corners’ reflects the artist’s continuous world travels as well as the different styles of work that he creates: Captivating portraits of eyes, intimate paintings onto found cans, naive ‘Everyman’ drawings and dream-like stories illustrated onto antique book pages.
Using lyrics from the music that soundtracks his life, his melancholy portraits echo stories of love, loss and the human condition. Juxtaposing frenetic gestural paint strokes with meticulously painted facial features, we find a subtle framework of hidden personal narratives.
His striking paintings of eyes, reflect within their glassy mirrors, a spell-binding and emotional communication between the subject and viewer. Vulnerable and delicate, the work of MY DOG SIGHS explore stories not only of sadness and nostalgia, but of hope and renewal within our ever complicated lives.
MY DOG SIGHS has exhibited and painted murals around the world including: UpFest in Bristol, The Amsterdam Street Art Museum, Vertical Gallery in Chicago, Scope Art Fair in Miami and New York, Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia, and wall projects in Hong Kong, South Korea, Rome and throughout the UK.
