Harley Oliver: Hitters, Grapplers and Strongmen - Art Collector

Harley Oliver, Max Stuart, 2017, Oil on Polyester, 66x57cm. Courtesy of the artist and Stanley Street Gallery, Darlinghurst.

For this exhibition, artist Harley Oliver has delved into a largely unexplored world to profile the characters who carved a living from pushing their body to the limit. These paintings are about fame. Life is short and fame is even shorter. The story is in their faces. Boxers, wrestlers, and circus strongmen of the early 1900s were famous, mysterious showmen - albeit on a brutal and often unforgiving stage. In their own way, they were unlikely heroes of their time.
