‘Paradise Island’ and paintings by Lee’roy Styrene

Thu 23 - Sun 26 Feb | 4 hours Cope St Gallery

Paradise Island by artist Lee’roy Styrene is a series of paintings with Superhero’s as the central theme. This work is colourful, cheeky, irreverent and demands your attention.

Lee’roy is an appropriation artist and works mainly in acrylic on canvas using mixed media and collage. Lee’roy started painting seriously during the pandemic and Paradise Island is his first show and exclusive to Sydney WorldPride. His aesthetic is largely influenced by fashion, street art and club culture. He places familiar characters in compromising positions, imagining how his childhood hero’s would react to current political and social issues. SuperHero’s represent the very best and worst aspects of human character and it is these contradictions and the explicit nature of the work which grab your attention and make you want to look deeper. This exhibition includes adult content not suitable for some audiences. Viewer discretion is advised.
