Girls & Ghosts is the first Australian solo show by Swedish Illustrator Anneli Olander, to coincide with Sydney Fashion Week. Opening night of the show at Friends of Leon Gallery was actually last night, but her work will be exhibited there until the 28th of May.
Olander is one of the world's leading female illustrators, with works published in magazines, books and apparel companies, as well as exhibiting internationally, however it was actually while studying at the University of Newcastle that she learnt her earlier skills.
"it could be anything, from a non perfect personality, to shattered dreams that become a bittersweet memory, or the joy or something quite ordinary. And of course about the more colourful spirits inside in a nerdy girl."
