Nicholas Chalmers

Australian artist Nicholas Chalmers should definitely receive top points for innovation. Rather than taking the more conventional route of exhibiting his latest work in a gallery, he has modified the back of a truck to transform it into a travelling art space. The exhibition, which is charmingly titled “Ze Frog & Toad”, will be visiting Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane in September 2010. Although I am not a trend forecaster by any means I’d like to tip that the road trip/art exhibition is going to be the next big thing.

Unfortunately, Chalmers will not be bringing his nomadic art show to my neck of the woods, but if he did I would be more than willing to get into the back of a truck to check out his quirky and graphic style.
