ANGELA AND HOSSEIN VALAMANESH

"Being an artist is a solitary life. It's wonderful to have someone to exchange ideas with"

ngela and Hossein met in the mid 1970s at the South Australian School of Art and have been living together since, sharing ideas and supporting each other in their endeavours to make art. Their creativity and work together has resulted in important commissions such as the (1999) a bronze sculpture at the Hyde Park Barracks in Sydney, (2005) outside the South Australian Museum, and (2011) at the western entrance of Adelaide’s Botanic Gardens. While the artists share a studio, each has independently maintained a consistency of purpose and enduring confidence in their individual practice.
