Merging together never before exhibited early surrealist works with new paintings, art installations and interactive ‘art games', the exhibition playfully invites viewers to immerse themselves as they explore this extraordinary melange of colour, form, and composition.

Before The Melange
by Anthony Breslin
Exhibition Dates 30 August - 25 September 2022
Anthony Breslin presents Before the Melange in a fundraiser collaboration with Space2b.
A multi-award-winning artist of international renown, Breslin’s works have shown nationally and around the world in over 50 exhibitions. Before the Melange will be an intimate show which pays tribute to the time Breslin spent growing up in St Kilda and forging his career in local studios.
Held in the lead up to his major solo show Melange at Burrinja Cultural Centre in October 2022, Before the Melange will feature a refined curation of works including captivating new large-scale compositions, limited edition prints of his latest stunning horse head series, and original works on bespoke wooden frame panels.
Breslin’s life-long support of community and longstanding collaborative relationship with Space2b is the inspiration behind this show. Proceeds from the exhibition launch will be donated to Space2Fly; a mentorship program which offers creative and business development and support in building language skills to newly arrived migrants and refugees, enabling them to become creative business owners. The launch event will be catered for with delicious drinks and food platters by Flavours of Syria, a café adjacent to Space2b run by Syrian asylum seeker Nayran Tabiei and family.
