Throwback Thursday

Safe Little World

Oct 7This week’s Throwback Thursday is the amazing artist Andrew Killick (a.k.a. Safe Little World). Back in 2012, Andrew had been working on a piece of art for over ten years, but had never had his work exhibited. An opportunity came up for an exhibition in central Hamilton, so he reached out to his crowd – and they delivered! $350 later, Andrew and his photographic exhibition could take the art world by storm. He described the experience as “a dream come true”.

But luckily for the art world, Andrew didn’t stop there. He has continued working on projects since his first exhibition, expanding on some of the ideas he put forward in that piece. He works on the visual side of creative group Lower Bar Collective, and last year took over Silo6 in Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter with them to create a weekend of experimental music and visual art.

We’re stoked to see how far Andrew’s come. He is a testament to the kind of amazing artists we get through our platform, and how well PledgeMe can work for them. If you want to see more of Andrew’s brilliant work, make sure you check out his website here. See you next week!
