Am I art? I don’t know: see inside the latest works by Queensland artist Michael Zavros

Sydney art gallery, Sullivan+Strumpf in Zetland have partnered with Michael Zavros to present something truly unique.

A  Guy Like Me is the latest body of work by Zavros, opening Thursday 15 October until 14 November. 

Best known for his beautifully realised award-winning paintings, this upcoming exhibition marks a detour into new and exciting territory, in which Michael introduces us to his avatar: a plastic mannequin modelled on himself but better –  6 foot 3, broader, more cut, a bit younger and a whole lot smoother. 

This fascinating creature, which Zavros refers to as “Dad” may also be a better human being, as the artist ponders the improvements that are possible in constructing art to imitate (and enhance) his very life itself.  

Captured in a series of sumptuously styled large-scale magazine-style photographs, Dad is perfectly at home stepping into Michael’s designer shoes. Head to the Sullivan+Strumpf website for more.
