An in-demand designer and painter, Charlotte Swiden is sharing her art in the public space…
The RCH 150 Anniversary Art Trail is finally going live! You will find my UooUoo in the Fitzroy Gardens the 20th Jan – 21 March. 100 artists will be featured across Melbourne and Geelong. I’m so immensely proud to be part of this exhibition supporting The Royal Children’s Hospital and Foundation, helping to raise funds and change the future of paediatric healthcare in generations to come.
The sculptures were all painted during winters first lockdown restrictions. Blue Event Productions doing an incredible job keeping us all on strict painting schedules in small groups to stay covid safe. This is the warehouse where we were painting. It was an amazing space but OMG it was cold! I wore long johns, woollen socks, 3 jumpers and a beanie and I was still an icy pole every day I finished my shift. It was such an incredible experience though and I got to meet a few of the wonderful artists behind some of the UooUoo’s.
The exhibition was suppose to take place in September but due to lockdown restrictions we all get to enjoy it now instead!
