Having developed his aesthetic through the unique medium of aerosol, the works of Australian artist Murtaza Haq, also known as “Silkor”, exhibit a tragic love for tenacious human relations and a hopeful search for profound ultimate good. “The Kindness of Strangers” is the first of a two-part series of installations which document his extensive travels in an intimate light; using expression and negative space to expose the faces of the many unseen and also to explore the concept that within personal particulars, there lies an ongoing truth which binds us all.
