Wallflower's launch was covered in Mildura's local paper, The Sunraysia Daily, by the lovely Allyson Fonseca who valiantly struggled through the interview during the crowded and noisy opening last Sunday. A slight correction we should mention is that although both artists exhibited work about Tokyo, Mr Tuomas A. Laitinen is not from Japan, he is from Finland.
Here is the link to the article which was published in Friday April 27th's issue page 2.
