BACKGROUND:

Wayne Howey Outsider (WHO) has sold out exhibitions in Australia, the United States and Europe. However, this showcase marks the Chicago debut collaboration for the two Brisbane-based Australian artists and symbolizes a significant milestone in the development of the Australian art scene in the United States.

Febe Zylstra and WHO first met in 2007. Both artists are accomplished in their individual rights. They have collaborated on two major shows in Australia and are now working side-by-side on various cultural projects, clothing designs and their respective art works. Zylstra and WHO are represented by OUR BIG SPLASH LLC in the Americas and by Joshua Levi Galleries in Brisbane, Australia.
