'Gnosis' Samuel Galileo Quinteros and Carl Cheleski
Samuel Galileo Quinteros and Carl Cheleski are two Australian artists who live and work in Sydney and who use painting as an exploration of contemporary themes in painting. Both Quinteros and Cheleski studied at Sydney College of the Arts, and have exhibited selectively in Sydney in solo and group shows. Quinteros was the recipient of the Zelda Stedman Young Artist scholarship in 2011, and Cheleski has been published in magazines such as SCAM."
Both Samuel Quinteros’ and Carl Cheleski’s practice has recently responded to the Asia-Pacific region and it’s aesthetic identity. With the mutual interest in this theme the two artists have hung a collaborative exhibition with their recent painting-art.
