About the Artist:
Jon Campbell’s mix of warmth, grit and humour make him one of Australia’s most exciting contemporary artists. Paintings, cut-outs, banners, neon signs and placards by Campbell celebrate the daily life of the Australian suburb as significant in the making of who we are. His works express a masculine view of the Australian suburban experience, and demonstrate his love of vernacular, popular music and culture, design, sport, advertising and youth culture. He takes materials from the every day and assembles them to create his own sense and meaning. Campbell’s works are often loud and boisterous and, like great pop music, one can’t help but love them.
Jon Campbell’s works are held in collections at the NGV, Melbourne, Sydney’s MCA and Heide Museum of Modern Art among many others. Jon was the recipient of the 2010 Melbourne Art Foundation Artist Commission, and won the Basil Sellers Art Prize in 2012.
Jon Campbell’s yeah flag has a broad history. It was first made for an exhibition in New Zealand in 2004. Since then the flag has been flown all over the world including the 2006 Commonwealth Games. The yeah flag encourages people to think differently and find better or more interesting ways to do things. Campbell’s yeah flag is positive, humourous and inspiring – great characteristics for a national flag. Needless to say it has been put forward to become Australians national flag.
The artwork has been used in different contexts over the years. It is a natural progression for the yeah artwork to be used as a Third Drawer Down limited edition tea towel.
‘yeah’ is for everybody.
