WALL STORY - Zoe Eaton / 29 June - 13 July 2019

An exhibition of paintings by Zoe Eaton. 'Wall Story' started in India, January 2019. Zoe participated in a 5 week artist residency, along with 26 other artists from around the world - for the Gujarat Global Art Festival.
During this visit, Zoe was inspired by the beautiful vibrant walls and buildings she saw in India - including roadside walls with Grafitti, religious and political statements - - to buildings adorned with artworks, murals and traditional Gujariti designs. The experience in Gujarat provides inspiration for new works made for this exhibition.
