June Artist Talk with Roberto Picciau

MESS 2012 FEMALE (1)

Join us at Vesuvio Wines, 3A Houndgate Darlington, Co Durham on  7th June from 7.30pm when Roberto Picciau will be discussing his experience of attending the recent Master Class at the renowned Zabludowicz Collection in London, and how this experience has affected his work and also new attitudes that are important for any artist to cultivate.

Roberto Picciau is a multi-disciplinary artist working in the North East of England. As a young emerging artist Picciau is interested in the creative process, the common karma associated with that process and also the shifting identity of the maker through their work.
