Spooktacular art event

LOOKING for a last minute Halloween themed function to liven up your night? Why not dress up and pop into WLFRT's Halloween art exhibition.

The self-taught Bundaberg man, Matt Davey, who works under the name WLFRT refers to himself as a "maker" rather than an artist. He said it was his second exhibition and looked forward to a fun and colourful night.

Mr Davey said the exhibition would have about 70 pieces of his work and as he had been influenced by things such as comic books and horror movies hosting a Halloween themed event was perfect.

"I like my art to effect people," he said.

"I can't describe what I do - I enjoy painting dead celebrities, skulls, lots of paint on canvas working with anything from acrylic to spray paint.

"I want them to see it and talk about it and for it to spark a response."

WLFRT got his name as people referred to his work as wolf art so he went with it after dropping the vowels to change it up a little.

This would be the maker's second event and he said the first one was successful and was encouraged to do it again.

He said people are encouraged to dress in Halloween costumes but it wouldn't be enforced.

The evening will be held at the Grand Hotel which will also be decked out with the theme of ghouls and ghost to celebrate Halloween.

"DJ Snesley will be performing throughout the night, we have a pop-up-bar and we have a smoke machine to tie it all together," Mr Davey said.
