Do you ever look at an artwork and think: Why that colour? Why that shape? Why that size? What’s it REALLY all about? and what does the artist do for a “real” job?

Sam Bloor has all these answers and more. Come along to this artist talk, located at Fremantle Esplanade Park, and he’ll answer all of your questions without the fancy art lingo or classroom-style monologue. Just a guy, in a park, waiting to ramble with you about the ocean, the law, and the *weather.
