ART CRUSH 12. CATHY STAUGHTON
Bold, brave, often humorous and sometimes autobiographical, Cathy Staughton of Arts Project Australia is an artist we shall always follow. Cathy has just recently painted our Fitzroy window with her unforgettable Luna Park work, and we couldn't be more proud to feature this Australian artist as our latest Art Crush in celebration!
We spoke to Arts Project Australia's Studio Manager James about Cathy's journey as an artist, her love of Luna Park and her involvement in our latest project with Arts Project Australia, lovingly named Australiana.
Where did Cathy's focus on Luna Park come from?
Cathy has painted the Luna Park face many, many times throughout her career, often morphing her own like into the open-mouthed face of the entrance.
What was Cathy's favourite part of working with Third Drawer Down and seeing her artwork become a product?
Much love from the Third Drawer Down team to Cathy and all who work at keeping Arts Project Australia alive and well. What they do, and the work they achieve is brilliant and we are so thrilled to be a part of spreading that magic.
An image speaks louder than words.
