Eugene Eveszely

Around 6 months ago I got an e-mail from Eugene Veszely who lives in Montrose in Melbourne. Eugene had just realized that his future lay in following his dreams to continue being an artist.
He told me a story that touched my heart and he inspired me to keep our Kalorama Gallery open for a further 6 months, even though it wasn’t making any money. One of the hardest things I have on my plate every day is getting e-mails like the one that Eugene sent to me.

His smooth baritone voice is sonorous and deep, reminiscent of a national network news anchor. Despite having recently turned 61 in February, Gary is the embodiment of youthful vigour. You would think Gary was in his 20s, from his self-assured stance and the way his enthusiasm and self-deprecating humour slips into his every sentence. He expertly taps away at his iPad as he demonstrates the operation of the Walnut Art app. “I can get a picture of [the customer’s] wall… then I can put the painting on their wall for them so they get a visualisation of what it’ll look like. It’s really simple but fantastic.” Unlike a large majority of the older generation who remain disengaged from technology, Gary is a member of the…

Wittaya Pised

Wittaya is a Thai artist who paints onto corrugated iron. I’ve always really enjoyed looking up at the power lines and seeing rows of birds just sitting there together. He captures this beautifully.
