Art Exhibitions in Sydney, Melissa Mladin-Lowgren

Nov 6, 2014

Sydney visual artist and storyteller Melissa Mladin-Lowgren hosts one of her Art Exhibitions in Sydney, teaming up with Prop Stylist Vanessa Colyer Tay and photographer Craig Wall to create this magical pictorial in the lead up to launch new collection 'Lumivita' 

It is a real joy when you see someone who works so very hard achieving wonderful things in their creative field. This is how I felt when I received an email from my friend and wonderful supporter Melissa Mladin-Lowgren last week about her upcoming Art Exhibitions in Sydney. Melissa has been a regular at many of my eat read love pop-up dinners and events and a driving force and friendly face in our little online creative community that fortunately for me has flowed across into 'real life'. I 'met' Melissa initially via instagram a couple of years back while admiring her gorgeous works during her time painting in Paris, and our paths have crossed many times since over our mutual passion for all things Paris, Food and Art! 

A pretty special lady indeed, Melissa gives her first piece of every collection to a charity close to her heart, based on the belief that it is always better to give before you receive (you know, the whole pay it forward thing). So in keeping with this theme I of course am delighted to share this BEAUTIFUL style shoot with you on the blog - a pictorial collaboration between Interiors and Prop Stylist Vanessa Colyer Tay, Artist Melissa Mladin-Lowgren and Photographer Craig Wall. These three super Sydney based creatives teamed up to create this magical, whimsical pictorial in the lead up to Mel's art exhibition titled Lumivita, A Dance With the Shadow and the Light

Melissa shares a little background on how the Art Exhibitions in Sydney and creative collaboration came about

"I met Vanessa via our instagram accounts and bonded over a love of whimsy, colour and artful imagery. An email conversation led to a creative brainstorm which resulted in this imagery. Vanessa saw magic in my paintings and was quite excited to extend them further into a styled installation incorporating a striking yet subtle set and over sized props (the kind you see in dreamscapes and my favourite photographer Tim Walker's work) and stunning photography by Vanessa's friend and photographer Craig Wall, who she has worked with on countless editorial and advertising shoots "

Congratulations Mel on a wonderful achievement yet again and I am so looking forward to seeing Lumivita up close and personal in a few weeks. The exhibition of paintings, Lumivita is on 25th November - 8th December at Art2Muse Gallery 357 New South Head Rd Double Bay Sydney Australia. You can find more info about Melissa's new paintings at Opening night Thursday 27th.
