“In a generation struck by digital shallowness, Philip Levine stands out as a unique figure and a roll model for others. His originality, freshness and creative talent makes him a strong candidate to get into the shoes of the likes of Bowie, Warhol and Basquiet as a total artist, urban icon and sex symbol.” Alon Shtruzman - Media entrepreneur.
At some point we all have to decide if Saigon whores and copious amounts of cocaine are our thing or not. Presumably a lifestyle lacking in Saigon whores and blow offers up a multitude of other possibilities; it’s doubtful however (given the free time such abstinence would provide) you could ever find the combination of talent and patience Australian artist, Emma Hack, routinely displays in her elaborate body paintings.
Hack’s website credits her as a skin illustrator, sculptor and photographer or more succinctly a “diverse multimedia artist”. Earlier this year she won the Renault New Generation Art Award at the Weekend ART Sydney Show and looks forward to touring her work abroad, no word yet if that includes stateside.
