Is Monday gettin’ all up in your mix and making you feel sad and blue? Don’t worry Darlene - it’s #FunkMongerMonday ! Today’s funk comes all the way from #Sydney in the form of the tremendous William Nghiem.
Fun fact - did you all know that 25% of my FunkMongers so far have been from #Australia ? Of course you did - you’ve been paying really close attention haven’t you?! Today I’m gonna be talking about William Nghiem, who’s work makes my legs turn into parachutes and my feet run away with my Waterstones gift card. In a good way of course. I’ve been following his work for some time, and I’m a huge fan of the Funk that he’s been Mongering. My favourite thing about William’s work is the awesome way that he’s been exploring his style. He’s been smashing the gaff up with bold, simple characters, and dealing out really intricate brush illustrations and detailed paintwork - it’s insane! His choice of colour is always a treat to see as well - it makes you wanna lick your laptop, or if you don’t wanna get lick all over your laptop you could lick a stranger’s laptop and then give it back. Don’t take my word for it though, get your laptop out of your mouth and go check him out - he’s been busy with three group shows and one solo show last year so it’s gonna be exciting to see what this year brings. I live 10,500 miles away from #Sydney but I’m gonna start swimming now - I’ll meet you all there in November!
