Exhibition Details


Please join us for the opening of Chris O’Doherty aka Reg Mombassa’s latest exhibition, Hypersonic Realism: A subset of and an adjunct to simplisticism Tuesday 20 February from 5.30pm.

Chris O'Doherty, also known by the pseudonym Reg Mombassa, is a New Zealand born Australian artist and musician. He is a founding member of the band Mental as Anything and member of Dog Trumpet. Mombassa's artwork is in two distinctive styles. The type of artwork he designs for Mambo– almost cartoonish and in vivid colours, incorporating religious, political and popular culture themes – is probably the style he is most widely known for. However his landscapes, many of which are inspired by his childhood in New Zealand, are equally sought after. His artworks can be found in the permanent collections of National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of New South Wales, The British Museum and many other significant private and institutional collections.
