Tobez Marinio is an artist whose work draws upon folk tales, legends and fables. He records his surreal interpretations of the world in sketchbooks, which in this exhibition are translated into digital prints.
This series is inspired predominantly by Ancient Greek myths. Various fantastical allegories emerge throughout the fifteen illustrations that tell the story. Through a graphic visual style - at once playful and reflective - Tobez exposes and subverts traditional assumptions about age and gender, and explores universal concerns of freedom and entrapment; isolation and escape.
Tobez Marinio will be debuting his collection in the Gallery Café throughout February, so come and join us to celebrate the opening night with a drink.
