Oigåll Projects present ‘Buffet’, a sumptuous new solo exhibition from Melbourne/Naarm based artist Billy Vanilli. With a distinctive flair for sensual and incandescent imagery, Billy explores themes of desire, consumption, nostalgia and intimacy. Capturing a realism that shimmers with dreamlike ebullience, his contemporary paintings are highly evocative; a sensory celebration of the tangible and emotional relationship we have with food & dining, and the rituals and symbols that these past times invoke. While embracing and exploring all that is erotic, hedonistic and decadent, his paintings are also a tender and personal love letter to art, life and passion. With this body of work, Billy continues to solidify himself as an exciting emerging artist with a refreshing vision and self-assured creative potential.

Billy’s work has previously been featured in several exhibitions, including ‘Rituals of Decadence’ at Oigåll Projects in 2021. His paintings have been acquired by private collectors locally and internationally.
