Talk-Shop: Being Original
Talk-Shop: Being Original
TALK SHOP invites inspirational creative leaders to share insights, ideas and knowledge about their creative path and how they got to where they are.
TALK SHOP aims to educate, network and share ideas with a community of people in the Yarra Valley who are interested in thinking about ways that ‘creativity’ might help them in their work, business or study.
It’s not easy to be original. It feels like everything has been done or said before.
Imagine a time when you felt genuinely fulfilled after creating an original idea. What a satisfying feeling to have achieved something with your creativity.
The other problem with choosing the right idea is to distinguish the quality of the idea from the passion.
This Talk Shop looks at three Melbourne based artists who have managed to continue developing new ideas and concepts towards their practice.
With roots as a street artist, Booth began showing in commercial galleries in 2008. He has continued since with solo exhibitions, group shows, murals, films, acquisitions at the National Gallery of Australia, and a long-term residency at Adelaide’s Hugo Michell Gallery. He’s worked throughout the UK, Europe, Japan, and the US.
