Jimmy James Kouratoras is an Auckland-based artist whose work depicts a rich examination of contemporary culture. Artbay Gallery is proud to present his first exhibition in New Zealand's South Island, called 'Our Meeting Place'. The exhibition presents seven large, distinctive artworks which reflect a moment of awakening, recognition or transcendence.
Of this exhibition, Jimmy says; "these diverse works bring their respective energies of aroha, manaakitanga and kaitiakitanga together. This is my world and I am so humbled to share it with you."
Jimmy’s work is often influenced by his Maori and Greek heritage, his style is characterised by cultural storytelling and layers of texture and imagery with vivid pops of colour. He has received critical acclaim both at home and internationally, recently winning the People’s choice award for the Brisbane Contemporary Art Prize 2016.
Official opening soiree: Thursday 15th March 5:30pm - 7pm (all art lovers welcome)
