2017, Equilibrium

Harmony rings within the chaos of society. As life’s ups and downs cancel each other out, a sense of balance can be found. Wrestling with positive and negative forces, Senekt’s solo exhibition explores the impacts and outcomes of life’s fluctuating experiences. With artworks fuelled by emotion, Senekts surreal style is highlighted by the mood, colour, and balance of each piece. 

Senekt portrays the dissemblance of his own reality through hyper-realistic drawings flooded with color and surreal dimensions. The Japanese painter from Kyoto has been based out of Melbourne, Australia since 2013. Inspired by friendships, photographs, disjointed memories, everyday experiences, and daily occurrences, Senekt found balance through creation. His figurative, yet abstract style confront the nature of instinct as Senekt aims to not only deconstruct the human physicality, but also its psyche.

2016, Spectrum

Following up his explosive arrival on Melbourne's street art scene SENEKT is presenting a collection of vivid paintings and sculptures that explore the relationship between emotion and color.
