Michael Robert Powell - travels inside my head

journeys across the planet - travels inside my head

digital art exhibition by a global nomad - Michael Robert Powell

On the road across the globe since '88 : images of Africa, Asia, Arabia, South America ... AND social-comment surreal & pyschedelic art.

21 - 30 March 2006 @ Thistle Hall, 293 (upper) Cuba Street, WGTN.

Open daily: 11am - 6 pm. Admission FREE.

My aim is non-political but realistic, trying to show a more humane version of the world as experienced by my global travels; I have been to many Islamic countries, alone, and these now seem topical, like Iran, Iraq, Yemen, Syria, Palestine / Israel over the years and much more other countries well beyond and have a lot of real experience and stories and info that others will find interesting.

I have attached a few jpeg images and an artist's statement with more info and my contact phone numbers. Please call me if you are interested in further information, or doing article or interview, etc. OR simply, please list my show with your events.
