Angela Blazevic is a Melbourne based artist who specialises in drawing and painting. We asked Angela a few questions ahead of the Artstop exibition, Shining a Light into the Darkness. Angela is one of the artists whose work is in the exhibition.

What kind of art do you make?

I works with portraits and I also love nature drawing. I find books in the library and materials from op shops and combine them to create paintings or collages. I like to have fun with art and see where it leads me…art is freedom. Many things in life can lead to art and opportunities are always there, you just have to find them.

How long have you been making art?

I have been making art since 2019, when my sister encouraged me to attend a class at Bridge Darebin. It was a great pathway for me to go into accredited Visual Art training.

What kind of art have you made in the past?

I have made an artwork  commission for the ABC. 

I have worked with Darebin City Council on their International Day People with Disability celebratory art booklet.

I have also been part of an arts project (disability advocacy) for , “Mojo 2022”. And I was part of the Arts Access Victoria Nimbus Studio exhibition 2022.

I was part of the DARU: Disability Etiquette initiative.   

A picture of the colourful wooden verandah outside artstop studio....the verandah is flecked with colourful paint and has the sunshine shining onto it. On this verandah is one of my artworks from the studio. Its a colourful pink and yellow flower, very bright with orange green and purple nature shapes coming out and decorating the background of the artwork. The artwork looks like a tropical wild plant on a bright blue background.

What are you looking forward to?
