His career has spanned over 60 years and numerous continents, so it’s no surprise that prolific British Pop Artist, Peter Phillips is extremely well versed in his artistry. After living and working in the USA and all through Europe, Phillips now resides in the sunshine spot that is a piece of art all on its own: Noosa. And what better place to showcase his work than the Noosa Food and Wine Festival this May?
To inaugurate his newly constructed studio gallery that is a must-see for art-lovers in the Asia Pacific, Phillips will be hosting two special events as a partnership with the Noosa Food and Wine Festival – which also coincides with his 80th birthday!
POP! Pop Art, Bubbles and Canapés will take place on Saturday 18th May, with contemporary canapes and cocktails crafted by local chefs and mixologists. Attendees will learn about the history of Pop Art, meet the man behind the art himself, hear stories of his creative career and be the first to see the retrospective exhibition!
On Sunday 19th May, the event titled Progressive Pop will take place, where guests will devour a six-hour course degustation menu artfully prepared by chef Josh Lopez. Each course will be paired with a glass of wine and accompanied by rare artworks from Phillips’s collection, creating a lively environment for both culinary and creative lovers!
The events over the weekend will present an exclusive first-look at the retrospective exhibition Phillips will be hosting all-year-round at his studio, as well as a short documentary on his life. With critiques from TIME Magazine and The New York Times doting Phillips as an industrious craftsman and celebrated contemporary artists, we’re certain the exhibition will be nothing short of extraordinary.
