EP 152 : GEORGE ROSE
"It looks like a hot mess until the end and then it all comes together"
Is it the ‘sweet sweet fades’ that lure you in first, or the mesmerizing botanical patterns? Maybe it’s the explosion of color or catchy word play that she integrates into some of her work. Regardless of what gets you there, the world of Melbourne based artist George Rose will draw you in and offer you plenty to discover while you’re there. Her walls and immersive interior murals play with scale and space, dense with bold patterns and bright colors. At first the work can seem overbearing but her clean finishes and sharp edges pared with a playful quality give everything a sense of order and fun that puts the viewer right at ease. This push and pull of lighthearted drama is what makes Rose’s work so engaging and enjoyable. It’s no surprise therefore that Rose is one of the most prolific and sought after mural artists on the Australian scene and nothing seems to indicate that things will be slowing down any time soon.
