Film | Art Talk with Niloufar Lovegrove

Nellie social card.jpg

Originally from Iran, Niloufar is a Central Queensland artist, practicing in traditional printmaking and creating public murals. Her work explores new possibilities of connecting two different worlds by using her mythical Persian stories of past and adjusting them to her current environment as a way of connecting spaces, sharing stories and building curiosity.

She will share her transition from being a graphic designer to a printmaker exhibiting her own works and how her passion for large scale works was granted with her design on the Fitzroy Bridge underpass. She will also talk about her process in drafting an initial sketch -be it a lino cut or a largescale mural. And in the end, she will have a demonstration of making a stencil pattern.

This episode is part of Rockhampton Art Gallery's ENGAGEing through ARTing program.
