Johnny Romeo Dirty Boulevard

Johnny Romeo


New Paintings

Following the sell-out success of his highly celebrated PUSSY RIOT exhibition in Alice Springs earlier this year, DIRTY BOULEVARD Dirty is a knockout punch of incendiary Neo-Expressionist Pop from internationally acclaimed artist Johnny Romeo.

With his fiery flare for larger-than-life colour arrangements, white-knuckled punk fury and comic book aesthetics, Johnny Romeo’s Dirty Boulevard is a gloriously harrowing and exhilarating romp through the seedy underbelly of Hollywood.

An elegy to broken hope, the series envisions Hollywood as a kaleidoscopic bad-acid trip; a seductive, dirty boulevard, where the Great American Dream reveals itself as the Great American Tragedy.

With Johnny Romeo in attendance, DIRTY BOULEVARD opens at 5:30 – 8pm on Friday 13th June at Penny Contemporary, 187 Liverpool Street, Hobart Tasmania. The exhibition will run until 14th July.
