Nicholas Mellefont (w. Kubota Fumikazu): In Dialogue at Neon Parlour, 1 July–17 July 2016
Nicholas Mellefont employs several mediums in his practice including photography, found object assemblage and painting. Attributing tongue-in-cheek titles and humour to illustrate more complex ideas, Mellefont creates a false impression of easy to read images. A familiarity with his works however illuminates that these carefully arranged compositions are full of double entendres and underlying meanings.
Mellefont studied BA Graphic Design before a BA Visual Arts in 2004 and is currently based in Melbourne. Most recently his work featured in a collaborative project with Kubota Fumikazu, In Dialogue, 2016; Selected Works at Rubicon ARI, 2014; Takeover Series, Telegram Gallery, London, 2015 and Applied Mathamatics, No Vacancy 2015. His work is often featured on online platforms such as Minimal Zine and Noice Magazine.
