Mason Mulholland is one of Sydney’s most in-demand models. He is also an artist, using a trilogy of painting, photography and mixed media to transform images, mainly via collage (my favourite technique). His amazing canvases are so ‘statement’. Oh how I would love to wallpaper a room with his work.
Mason is fascinated with ‘motion’ and uses inspiration from modelling as inspiration for his art, combined with the luxury of travel that his job has afforded him, allowing him to explore texture, techniques, colours and new styles from the world over. Back in 2010 he completed his debut exhibition at 72 Erskine Street in Sydney called ‘Moves’. According to the man himself “The Moves exhibition showcased subjects who have pioneered movements in art, film, music and history, including the likes of Francis Bacon, Jimmy Hendrix and James Dean. These movers have shaken us in various ways. We seem to need that now and then!”
More recently, he has collaborated with fashion photographer Georges Antoni and other creative types in the WABI SABI exhibition currently showing at Sun Studios. I was blown away by some of Mason’s work on show there.
