Art From Isolation
The duo will be showing their artwork at a new exhibition, which came out of this year’s period of enforced isolation.

“For creative people, I think we’re kind of used to isolation, we like the solitude and the quiet time,” Sila said.

“But it was a great time to be productive and do what we love.”

At just 11-years-old, Hunter is a budding artist and enjoys drawing. He said he was looking forward to his first professional art show. “I like to do art, it’s so simple,” Hunter said.

“I am excited to show people my artwork and make sales, and I am so excited for my first proper exhibition.”

Sila added Hunter had been through a rough time at school, but found solace in his artwork.

“He’s a good kid with a big heart who’s been through a lot of challenges, but he still manages to stay strong and true to himself,” she said.

“Hunter hopes to inspire and encourage other kids who have been through hard times to never give up and to follow their dreams.

“He inspires me in many ways, to be better and to do better.”

The art show, curated by Renata Jayne, will feature work from a range of artists, in a wide variety of mediums, and there will be food and entertainment on offer as well.

Money raised from ticket sales will go to Farm Animal Sanctuary, a charity which provides a safe haven for animals. All the artworks will also be for sale, with prices starting from just $4.

You can find Sila’s work at her Facebook page, Sila Sak Art; Hunter also has his own Facebook page, Hunter’s Supercalifragilisticexpialidocius Art. Search Eventbrite for Brisbane Iso Art Exhibition to buy tickets, which start from $10 for children.
