Known for his extraordinary technical prowess, Michael Zavros has captivated audiences with his sumptuous realist renderings and surreal juxtapositions.
Frequently engrossed in notions of quality and luxury, fashion and appearance, Zavros's idealised imagery has developed alongside Australia's pronounced turn to conspicuous consumption and aspirational individualism.
The Favourite profiles significant thematic explorations of the artist, including fashion magazines, European palaces, luxury cars, his children, Narcissus and still life, in addition to his self-portraits and reflections upon his heritage. It will survey 25 years of painting, sculpture, photography and video by this leading contemporary Queensland artist.
