We are thrilled to announce that Martinich & Carran are the latest art partners to join the Everything Begins art and design collection and online art gallery.

Here at Everything Begins we are long time fans of Martinich & Carran, a collaboration between Australian artist Rowena Martinich and New Zealand artist Geoffrey Carran.

Both, Master of Fine Art graduates from RMIT, Martinich & Carran work both independently and collaboratively to create giant public murals and collectable artworks. Their art has adorned buildings and spaces throughout Australia as well as prominent international commissions and exhibitions. Their work as individual artists informs and inspires their collaborative projects, marrying their two diverse practices of vibrant Abstract Expressionism and Representational painting.

Martinich&Carran's projects often blur the boundaries between art and design with a strong focus on colour.

GEOFFREY CARRAN /// Geoffrey Carran is a contemporary artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Since completing a Bachelor of Fine Art in New Zealand he has worked in numerous studios and countries. Guided by a keen sense of curiosity and adventure to travel and produce work around the globe he eventually landed in Melbourne. Here, Carran completed a Master of Fine Art at RMIT University in 2008, after which he continued to expand his practice.

Carran has exhibited his work in group and solo shows through-out Australia, New Zealand and Turkey whilst also working on collaborative projects with artists of wide-ranging disciplines. As well as pursuing his own diverse practice, Carran is actively involved in encouraging and fostering participation in the arts through curating exhibitions, such as the drawing show Your choice! in 2009. Carran has taught community art programs at the CAE in Melbourne and has held a position as tutor and technician in Visual Arts at RMIT University.

Carrans current work references romantic themes, nature, science, history, pattern and mythology. His prolific approach in the studio is fuelled by his life. He paints his experiences, transforming them into the pictorial. Carran marvels at the everyday and this enthusiasm is instantly recognizable in his painting, evident in the play between layers, colours and motifs. His work is passionate and playful, yet seeks to evoke a sense of wonder at the way our histories tie together through fictional stories, personal experiences and the audiences psyche.
