Breaking: CJ Hendry Is Bringing Her Latest Exhibition To Australia

By Catherine Blake - 23 Nov 2018

You'll know her as the artist who dipped Marty McFly’s sneakers in black paint, her interplanetary talent for photorealistic pencil drawings of ordinary items (there’s one particularly euphoric drawing of a worn-in pair of RMs that’ll bring a tear to your eye), and the fact that Jay-Z and Kanye West have her work in their private collections (true story). 

 A Brisbanite who went off chasing glory in the cutthroat world of the New York art scene, the past three years have seen Hendry's extraordinary works explode onto the art scene. More recent exhibitions have ranged from Pantone paint swatches and paint splashes—her piece 'Red' famously took up an enourmous billboard in LA's downtown—, an exclusive collab with Christian Louboutin where shoes were cast into coloured crayons, hyperreal Polaroid drawings courtesy of Andy Warhol, and her largest exhibition to date entitled ‘Monochrome’ was a feast of pantone colours displayed across seven rooms in a Brooklyn warehouse.

And now, finally, she's announced on her social media channels that she'll be bringing her incredible talent to Australia in 2019! For now, there is next to no information about when, where, or what Hendry will be bringing down under, but if 2018 is anything to go by, it's going to be insane.

We'll bring you exhibition dates and locations as they come in. Stay tuned!
