Leigh Hobbs Book Signing
18 March, 2014 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Coincides with ‘Leigh Hobbs Fine Art’ exhibition at Gallery on Sturt. 15 March – 19 April 2014
Leigh Hobbs is a senior artist and published author based in Melbourne who has a broad-based international following. His published books include ‘Old Tom’ ‘Horrible Harriet, ‘Mr Badger’ ‘Mr Chicken’ series and numerous others. He is a fine artist who concerns himself with the observation and story telling about the human condition. Hobbs’ brilliance lies in tapping into the aspect of humans that allows us to unwittingly laugh at our own behaviour which is disguised within Hobbs’ seemingly harmless and loveable characters. Children are a ready audience for Hobbs’ creations but in the artist’s mind, and intent, the audience is adult.
