Bart Hoedemakers is a full time artist based in Oxford, New Zealand where he has worked since returning from Melbourne, Australia in late 2005.
Diverse creative skills are witnessed in the stencil photography which he captures himself, in the steel frames and supports he engineers and of course in the painted surface itself.
Bart’s message is never as it seems – the explicit use of imagery, icon, colour, texture and form often hides something more subtle or cheeky. He purposely pits rural, family and innocent themes against the urban art form of stencilling knowing there will be an unavoidable clash.
Recent work includes an invitation to and participation in the Melbourne International Stencil festival, a group show at Gallery O and an extremely successful solo exhibition at the Cloisters Arts Center Gallery.
His work can also be viewed at Look Gallery, 95a Main Road, Redcliffs, Christchurch and SuterDoieg Gallery, Ferry Road, Christchurch.
