May 6th - Wayne Harrison will demonstrate Airbrushing - Fine Arts
Wayne Harrison has been airbrushing for over 35 years. His artworks have won awards in both USA and Australia, particularly for Top Graphics and Airbrush Art (murals) throughout the automotive shows around Australia In the years when panel vans were popular, Wayne's work won many top custom paint awards. His company during these times was called "FANTASY MURALS", located in Blacktown and was well known to all. Wayne's mentor and close friend is and always will be Frank Lee; as a young man Frank offered Wayne his future, and his advice and support is what has driven him over the years - which is why Wayne now prides himself on offering the same support and advice to others.
In 1992 Wayne formed his current business Advanced Airbrush with his wife Joanne, which was built on the cutting edge of airbrushing - changing all the rules and becoming the leaders of airbrushing in Australia. Wayne's next step was to gain recognition for his work and to see what the world offered. In 1995 he entered his first overseas competition "AIRSTORM 95" in Atlanta USA and won 1ST PLACE in the Alternative section. Wayne and Joanne also started the first Airbrush Expo in 1998, with the desire to get local airbrush artists from all around Australia and New Zealand to unite and support each other.
