50 Faces of Balmain ​

As a special event, the Contemporary Gallery of the Balmain Art and Craft Show 2012 hosted a solo exhibition showcasing my new series “50 Faces of Balmain.” These portraits are a selection of portraits of Balmain people, residents, iconic business people and some famous Balmain locals. Below are a sample of portraits from this project.
