ART CRUSH: GEORGE BYRNE ‘LOCAL DIVISION’ EXHIBITION AT OLSEN IRWIN

Tuesday 16th February 2016

Ten Towers is having a love affair with George Byrne. Av first spotted his Hotel pool #1 print in Olsen Irwin’s window, she slammed on the breaks, swerved the corner and almost crashed the car. It kept her up long into the night that photograph, she tracked him down on Instagram and was prepared to gatecrash the opening if necessary… One DM later and we were upclose with him viewing his L.A. series ‘Local Division.’ Fuelled the obsession. The colours, the emotion, the connection, the way he sees beauty in the ordinary, decrepit and seemingly uninspired drew us into his world. And finding him gives window shopping a whole new meaning. Go see the exhibition and stay tuned. So much more to come from the man Byrne.
