Davvyd’s got Tal­ent and he’s gonna use it

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

LO­CAL artist Davvyd Brown will ap­pear on Aus­tralia’s Got Tal­ent in Fe­bru­ary af­ter be­ing spot­ted by a Chan­nel 7 tal­ent scout who was hol­i­day­ing in Port Dou­glas.

Davvyd will per­form a Rolf Har­ris-style of paint­ing where he will only be given a cou­ple of min­utes to draw a pic­ture be­fore the judges and the live au­di­ence give their ver­dict.

“The show is fly­ing me to the Gold Coast in Fe­bru­ary and then I will be filmed live on the show and if the judges give me the ’thumbs up’ I’ll move on to the next heat, if not - I’ll be out,” Brown said.

Davvyd has also been busy cre­at­ing de­signs for artist and writer Ro Lon­don for her new col­lec­tion of beau­ti­fully printed cloth­ing with much of the pro­ceeds be­ing do­nated to help en­dan­gered an­i­mals.

He said he will also fea­ture some of these de­signs when he ap­pears on Aus­tralia’s Got Tal­ent.

Ms Lon­don has re­cently com­pleted her new Par­adisa col­lec­tion which is an ex­quis­ite tome about the en­dan­gered big bird species of the world.

“I am a pas­sion­ate per­son and pas­sion­ate about car­ing for our an­i­mals - we have to,” Ms Lon­don said.

As a tex­tile de­signer, Ms Lon­don cre­ates her stun­ning art­work pieces on silks with bright daz­zling colours and big, bold pic­tures of the world’s en­dan­gered an­i­mals and birds by turn­ing them into scarves, caf­tans and sarongs.

The col­lec­tion is now in China be­ing printed on a num­ber of fab­rics, in­clud­ing silk, silk chif­fon, cotton, satin and bam­boo.
