Jeff Sia is launching his first solo show today at the ION Art Gallery. Jeff is a self-taught artist and after three years of intricate planning, eighteen works -mainly acrylic on canvas- were selected for a contemporary splashy Lego Art exhibition. The paintings blend the artist’s attraction to Lego with a reference to Pop Art.
“Each work is a creative expression of juxtaposed grooves, caps, shapes , depth and striking colours. I am using this method for the expression of scenery, architecture, robotics, Lego works, cartoon characters and portraits.”
When not painting, Jeff works in his frame workshop. He is an avid fan of fashion, photography, music and -you guessed it- Lego.
Lego Art by Jeff Sia runs till 5 February at the ION Art Gallery.
