Art Exhibitions & Galleries in Perth


View Guides

Western Australia has a surprisingly vibrant visual arts scene, as evidenced by the 250+ galleries and artists studios listed on our guides. International artists are attracted by the extraordinary colours and varied coastal and inland landscapes, the isolation and the light. While the Pilbara and the Kimberley are home to aboriginal art, Margaret River has become the Ubud of WA, a paradise for painters and lovers of fine art.

Description

Known for his paintings of clouds and Australian landscapes, Min-Woo Bang is bringing his most recent collections to Perth. 

On the exhibition, Min-Woo said,

“My painting explores romantic landscape painting and the deeper emotional response and engagement through mysterious and shifting Australian landscape. I am interested in capturing nature’s transitional moods in breathtaking Australian landscapes, engaging my senses with the emotional and aesthetic qualities of the land and sky that echo human moods. A dramatic interplay between light and dark directing the focus to gigantic moving clouds or gusts of wind as sky and land create worldly energies.”
