  • Biography

    Melissa Guest is an artist based in Sydney, Australia. A love of art from childhood has inspired her to take familiar surroundings and experiences to produce compositions that are rich with colour, line and shape. These pieces relate to journeys that she conveys on canvas to connect with the viewer.

    This Melbourne urbanscape piece is a visual journey recording snippets of walk rituals in a city loved by the artist. Architectural references are composed including signage, colours and shapes as well as the inclusion of historical details such as the use of the perfect cutting from old newspapers which invites nostalgic memories and conversations. This particular newspaper cutting links an article from a May 1945 Sydney Morning Herald newspaper to the prospect of a new car manufacturing plant to be located in Melbourne and the history of surrounding pubs and businesses such as the Builders Arms and CW Pugh Optometrists located in Gertrude St, Fitzroy.
