Tom Polo's 'Paris Drawings' publication finalist in AGDA Design Awards 2019

2 October 2019

The book ‘Tom Polo Paris Drawings’ has been selected as a Finalist in the prestigious 2019 AGDA Design Awards. Tom’s debut publication draws on a body of work made during the artist’s 2016 residency at the Cite Internationale des Arts residency, Paris. ⠀⠀

The forty eight portraits ooze with both personality and character, their often impish visages revealing a language that proves both playful and pointed, leaning on the qualities of the naive and untaught, while also displaying an astute painterly syntax and sensibility. The book also features an essay by Justin Paton, Head Curator of International Art at the Art Gallery of New South Wales.The publication is available to buy at STATION.⠀
