Johnny Romeo – Ned Kelly Exhibition
Hosted By 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace
September 20th - October 7th, 2022
As a critically acclaimed international artist, Johnny Romeo does not owe anyone any explanations. Yet to know the man behind the name is to understand the substance behind the art, art that has evolved and enchanted audiences for well over a decade.
Romeo is an Australian born artist described as a neo expressionist pop artist who, through a poetic union of image and word, communicates his perspective of contemporary society. Yet to label him as a pure pop painter could be considered somewhat reductionist. As a genre typically synonymous with unfettered brashness, Romeo brings confidence and maturity to his individual interpretation, through coherent narrative and meticulous execution, while still upholding playfulness and colour, example of his accomplished grasp of the style.
