BALD ARCHY WINNER 2014 - MITCHELL JOHNSON WRECKING BALLS (ASHES TO ASHES)
I am so excited about winning the Bald Archy prize this year with my cheeky painting of Mitchell Johnson. Mitchell blitzed the English batting line with his fast bowling, so I thought Mitchell swinging on a HUGE cricket wrecking ball (a la Miley Cyrus) was quite appropriate. I had a heap of fun in Canberra on Friday & can't thank Peter Batey enough. Peter's tireless work, humour & passion make the BA's what they are & after 21 years the prize just keeps getting bigger & better. My friends Steve Panozzo & James Brennan also had some brilliant works hung. Go see this great exhibiton, it will be touring NSW & Victoria until the end of the year.
