George Gittoes | Blood Mystic Book Launch Exhibition

27 October 2016

Nanda\Hobbs Contemporary is proud to host the Sydney launch of George Gittoes' new book BLOOD MYSTIC.

George Gittoes defies categorisation, as his life defies belief. Equal parts artist and warrior, George is famous for waging war on war with art, circus, photography and film. ‘Soldiers die for flags. For me it is art,’ he says.

BLOOD MYSTIC, chronicles George’s extraordinary life for the first time. In its pages, the reader is drawn into the astounding mind of a man who has worked with Andy Warhol, dined with Fidel Castro, plotted with Julian Assange, been feted by Nelson Mandela, blessed by Mother Theresa, and sneezed on by the Dalai Lama, all the while exhibiting relentless energy and an outstanding ability to outwit death itself.

To celebrate the launch of BLOOD MYSTIC, we have curated an exhibition of paintings, watercolours and drawings produced by Gittoes over the past 30 years.
