Brisbane Grammar School has added Australian artist Johnny Romeo’s artwork to their private collection. ‘Crimp Crew’ (an interpretation of Popeye the Sailor) from Romeo’s recent solo exhibition at Tiny Tree Café is an exemplar piece representative of the artists neo expressionist pop style.
“Brisbane Grammar School is an independent, non-denominational, day and boarding school for boys, located in Spring Hill, an inner suburb of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.” As Brisbane’s first secondary school for boys, BGS has been a leader in education in Queensland since its foundation in 1868. With some of BGS’s buildings listed on the Qld Heritage Register, Romeo’s artwork is sure to brighten their walls.
A note from Romeo himself: “I hope the boys at Brisbane Grammar School enjoy this work for many years to come!”
Romeo’s work can be found peppered around the globe in various public and private collections. His work is idiosyncratic, innovative, and evolving, hallmarks of collectable work. He is represented by a host of galleries in America, Europe and the Pan Pacific and is no stranger to sell out shows.
