Melbourne based artist Kenny Pittock was announced
as the winner of the Evening Star, South Melbourne Market prize of
$5,000 on Saturday 2 February.
Internationally acclaimed and award winning Australian actor
Rachel Griffiths officially opened the exhibition on
Saturday and congratulated each of the artists and wished all of
them every success in pursuing their passion for art.
Pittock's winning work Clingy
Ex-Boyfriend is like "most of my work, it is meant to be
both funny and serious" says the artist. "At the time
I painted it I figured there were basically two types of people,
there's slime balls and there's misery guts. You wake up as one or
the other every morning."
Martin Martini The Vienna Project added to the celebrations with
his unique big band.
(These artists will each receive $250 and their work will be
reproduced as Linden postcards)
