Internationally acclaimed Australian Pop painter Johnny Romeo returns to Melbourne with his signature brew of thrilling Kitsch Pop and savvy culture jamming in his latest exhibition of recent works, Cloud 9. Expertly curated by esteemed art dealer Michael Powe of Anala Art Advisory, Glenbrook, in association with Melbourne’s West End Art Space, the collection comprises of 10 electrifying paintings selected from Romeo’s bold catalogue of recent works. Cloud 9 marks the artist’s first time exhibiting at West End Art Space and showcases Australia’s King of Pop at the height of his powers. Brimming with slick Pop imagery, kaleidoscopic dreamscapes and humorous existential musings, the collection is a gleefully psychedelic shot of Poptimism that explores the transformative power of happiness. Cloud 9 takes audiences soaring through the candy-coated skies of Romeo’s warped Technicolour visions, as he draws us into a state of pure Pop euphoria.
