Breslin’s life-long support of the community and longstanding collaborative relationship with Space2b is the inspiration behind this show.
Proceeds from the exhibition launch will be donated to Space2Fly; a mentorship program that offers creative and business development and support in building language skills to newly arrived migrants and
refugees, enabling them to become creative business owners.
The launch event will be catered for with delicious drinks and food platters by Flavours of Syria, a café adjacent to Space2b run by Syrian asylum seeker Nayran Tabiei and family.. Held in the lead-up to his major solo show Melange at Burrinja Cultural Centre in October 2022.
Before the Melange will feature a refined curation of works including captivating new large-scale compositions, limited edition prints of his latest stunning horse head series, and original works on bespoke wooden frame panels.
