Guido van Helton’s “Vacancy” series

“The Offerings…” in Brisbane

For his series entitled “Vacancy”, Guido van Helton┬ápaints portraits of actual public sculptures, keeping the classical antiquity of these statues in public spaces through a new medium.”They attempt to highlight the contrast between the permanence of sculpture vs the ephemeral nature of street art,” says the artist.

These pieces were done in his home country, Australia, but Guido is making his way to London soon and is eager for more walls.
