ENJOY TONY GARIFALAKIS ON ARTSTAMP.DK

Tony Garifalakis’ project for artstamp.dk Bloodline/Family is a selection of twenty- five images from his Mob Rule (Family) and Bloodline series (2014).

This group of works is a collection of photographic portraits of European Royalty whose identities have been obscured through the use of black spray paint.

The construction of these sabotaged portraits echoes graffiti and its status as a clandestine tool for conveying rebellious social and political messages.

Mob Rule was exhibited at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney in 2014. Bloodline was exhibited as part of Whisper in my Mask: TarraWarra Biennial 2014 at the TarraWarra Museum of Art.

Tony Garifalakis is based in Melbourne, Australia. He uses a range of media, including photography, painting, collage and installation to subvert and posit doubt in systems of belief while also questioning the often inter-related mechanisms of surveillance, compliance and control. Central to the artist’s practice are questions of power and authority.
