Like all independent artists, James is constantly juggling projects.
This week Melbourne’s Artplay is full of colourful new artworks. Today James Berlyn is bumping out his collection of splatterpaults and stencil stompers after four days of SPLAT! workshops. Judging by the photos, this may well have been the messiest Artplay event this year – it also looks like loads of fun. If you are in Melbourne stop by Birrarung Marr and see the resulting exhibition from tomorrow until May 5 – and have a go at the DIY stencilling station.
SPLAT! was originally commissioned by Awesome Arts and is presented in Melbourne by Artplay, a place where families and children can be creative and express themselves in an open and supportive environment.
In a couple of months James will be pulling out his typewriters heading East again. This time he will collect the secrets of Adelaide Cabaret Festival goers as Tawdry Heartburn’s Manic Cures manifests in the Winter Garden 12-16 and 19-22 June.
Visit www.tawdryheartburn.com to view the secrets archive from Tawdry’s past performances.
But it isn’t only about new life for past shows. James is working on two new productions which we hope to bring you before the year is out. Stay tuned.
