Mike Chavez: Break-Up Album - Art Collector

Courtesy: the artist and Gallerysmith, Melbourne

Mike Chavez is well known for his irreverent approach to sensitive topics. His Live Fast Die Young series received critical acclaim when it was shown in Sydney in 2011 while his ‘Fucking Boat People’ works caused a quiet stir when they graced Gallerysmith’s walls in 2014.

Now directing his gaze inward, Mike’s new body of screenprints Break-up Album turns some common break-up platitudes on their head and in doing so, offers some playful insights to the tenuous world of personal relationships. Works such as ‘It’s Not Me, It’s You’ offer a subtle but sharp quip pointing to a self-absorbed generation. This exhibition is sure to evoke some interesting debates about contemporary relationships and the phenomenon of breakup by text message.
