Artist of the Month

At Gallery 360, we boast a fine collection of original art and invite you to come in and experience our stunning pieces, whilst taking advantage of the expertise of our design consultants.

Buying art takes a specific process and there are numerous elements to consider and take into account before making your big purchase. Firstly and most importantly, always ensure you buy art you love. This may seem simple, but it’s key in ensuring your piece stands the test of time. Secondly, make sure it fits well and is in harmony within your space, whether this be at the home or office. Finally, presentation is everything; ensure framing is of high quality and the right fit for your piece as this can make all the difference. If you’re not sure where to start, rest assured, our design consultants will work with you to advise what artwork will suit your space best.

To further assist your art buying process, Gallery 360 specifically chooses Western Australian artists with pieces that can fit in with your surroundings. We handpick these artists based on their artistic value, with works from Jo Duffy, Dylan Fox, Cameron Langridge, Christine Hingston, Jo Darvall, Kim Maple and so many more. These established artists are exquisitely unique in their pieces, providing Gallery 360 with the very best original art.

We also do framing and are home to some of the best art framers in Perth. From custom framing, photo frames and acrylic framing, Gallery 360 is West Australia’s premium framing gallery. We believe a good frame adds substance, protects and adds value to any piece and can essentially make or break the viewing pleasure. This is why we place the utmost importance in offering you the best framing service in Perth, and can create custom frames to suit your individual pieces.

ROB FORLANI

 

To use my flare and inspiration to guide me in creating to the observer a long lasting impression that can be viewed with pleasure and enjoyment in ones domain… Canvases that speak fluently to the senses. - The structure of any painting is a story waiting to be told.”

Western Australian artist Rob Forlani builds impressions through brushy colour and geometry. More abstract than representational, he presents loose rectilinear geometry that may allude to windows, doors, or passageways. Forlani applies colour and paint with both carefulness and wild abandon.

A pleasurable lack of inhibition makes for a refreshing imagery that simultaneously acknowledges and deconstructs order.

Forlani does a superb job of using colour, paint application, and spatial presentation to affect the psychology of formation. Working in Western Australia, Forlani’s work is exhibited and collected widely throughout the region locally, nationally and in New York, San Francisco, Sweden & New Zealand.”
