can anyone help me identify this artist?

sup riotacters!

so there’s a house thats recently come up for sale in red hill. totally out of my price range and probably a little too high class for my tastes anyway.

but I really like the artwork in the house! I’ve emailed the agent and the vendor is not interested in divulging the artists name (wtf? nice one d***head) so I’m turning to social media and riotact to try and fine out.

here is the link

little help? the pictures are in the entry, dining room and formal lounge room.

Unfortunately, this homeowner has unwittingly purchased some of the more puerile dregs of Cullen’s oevre, which ranged from brilliance to absolute cr*p. The house itself is banalised beyond recognition – a friend of mine once lived there. There’s no architectural or interior design merit whatsoever on any score, anywhere in any of the pictures. No design journal would go near it.

Feel free to post up pics of your house and it’s art work so RiotACT can critique it.

The RH house is not being sold with the art work (ok maybe the red rabbit in the front garden) so it doesn’t really matter whether anybody else likes it or not.

Holy @#$%! I just looked at the pictures on Allhomes – you call that “art”!????

WTF is wrong with the world? It’s not art, it’s garbage. Not as bad as Jackson’s Pollocks, granted, but it’s still awful.

Dogs playing poker more your style?

Elvises on black velvet?

I don’t know that artist, but it does sound exactly like what the nouveau-riche tradesmen would put in their houses if they weren’t being conned into buying the demented splotchings of a talentless and idea-free drug-addict posing as an artist.

The artist was possibly traumatised after watching too much Giggle & Hoot. I’m sure that’s Hootabelle in the painting on the right, looking like she’s on crystal meth.

What’s your house like?

Solid brick, inner suburbs, crammed with art.

What a great way to boost the amount of people looking at your house for sale. I tips me lid to ya.

Do you really think that the person who owns this place uses “sup” as a written salutation and can’t spell “find”?

Not the owner. A real estate agent on the other hand……….

No, no, no! Real estate agents tend towards the non-quite-right-and-overlong:

These classy salutations reek ambience and overlook spacious grounds boasting a mammoth gazebo and envious landscaping.

Unless someone is trying to ‘get down’ with the Rioters. Yo. You can smell the hoodie, and it smells like commission spirit.

I’ve been trying on and off for many years to figure out exactly what’s wrong with real-estate speak, and I think you’ve nailed it. Lots of words in an unusual form, and about every fifth one is a malapropism. It looks like you may actually have a gift for that particular form. I wish that was a compliment, but unfortunately I don’t think it is :-).

Poet, real estate agent…Putting aside that one gets very little money for examining the soul (or at least writing rude poems about Tony Abbott and Limestone Lizzie) and that the other has no soul, what is the difference? ‘Tis but a short step from the charming handyman’s dream of poesie to the elevated mansion of real estate, which ‘oozes convenience and stunningly elevated outlook’ like a malfunctioning and cancerous gland.

(-: And I haven’t even had a drink tonight.

It looks like the kind of place that would end up in Habitus.

If I was selling a house and received a request to positively ID certain valuables on the premises from some random dude, I would think (a) the request may be innocent, or (b) it may be coming from a burglar who is trying to work out the potential profits of doing the house. Given the latter possibility I wouldn’t respond, and I might even have a chat to the local plod.

In other words, I don’t think it’s the vendor who’s being a d***head here.

really? you’d call the cops and how would that conversation go? “officer, officer – someone asked me a question, i think they might be planning on robbing me!”

Well yes, that’s almost exactly how the conversation would go, except I’d only say “officer” once. And then, because I’m a very rich and influential person with a huge expensive house for sale that’s full of expensive art and stuff, the nice policeman would take me very seriously indeed. That’s just how things go when you’re rich and influential.

Of course, if you don’t have two bob to rub together, things would turn out differently.

rich and influential… real estate agent? i think not. even then rich an influential will only mean that they don’t laugh in your face. they tell you that they will look into it, hang up the phone and then have a big laugh at the paranoid freak who calls the police because people ask questions about the pictures he has posted on the internet…

Haha

Ah, so only people who can spell and write properly own houses. I did not know that.

Dear me, having a bit of trouble comprehending simple English sentences are we? I specifically referred to “this place”. It’s possible that someone who owns a multimillion dollar house on Red Hill writes like the OP. It’s also possible that the moon is made out of cheese, but just as unlikely.

Ask for viewing /go to open house. Photograph the art. Check for signature or other moniker. Consult with art dealer. Alternatively search title and send addressed letter to owner with your request.
Note : when photographing maybe keep away from said “dh”.
