THE ARTISTS A-Z

4th Perspective

4th Perspective is a 34 year old artist residing in Warracknabeal, Victoria. Due to pathological depersonalisation, they have always felt like they were an observer in the world rather than one directly interacting with it, which has spurred them into attempting to convey their unique view in any way that they can, from music to food and more recently, visual art.

Despite losing a large percentage of their vision in early 2020 to advanced Keratoconus and a ruptured (left) cornea, they decided to learn photography and soon after, digital art in order to portray the images and interpretations in their mind.

Their art depicts a world of deranged fantasy; from tongue in cheek depictions of capitalist trees to literal depictions of mental health conditions such as Dissociative Identity Disorder.

Adnate

Adnate is an internationally recognised large scale portrait artist and highly regarded fine artist. He has moved past his roots in Street Art, utilising his mediums to carry his realist style into the fine art realm.

Adnate has worked closely with indigenous people of their native land, especially with Indigenous Australians. He paints large scale murals around Australia and the world, creating a statement of reclaiming the land that was always theirs. He endeavours to capture the stories and emotions of each subject he paints, encouraging the audience to feel through their own experience.

Lucy Lucy

Mankind
