Kitty Calvert: Sydney Affordable Art Fair Spotlight

Posted on 05 June 2023

Kitty Calvert's quirky assemblage sculptures are a recollection of past treasures brought to life – if you're looking for something different at the Sydney Affordable Art Fair, you can't go past these amazing artworks.

Behind Kitty Calvert is two individuals, husband and wife Julia Brampton and Phill Calvert. Together they haunt op-shops, recycling stores and vintage warehouses to find the amazing pieces of discarded treasure they use to create their builds. Often humorous and quirky, each artwork tells a story with the lost and up-cycled treasures they are made from.

At the age of 12, Julia Calvert was one of Paddington Market in Sydney's first and youngest stallholders, carrying a passion for vintage toys. As a drummer and a 'fixer' of things, Phill Calvert learnt early on how not to strangle a hammer. Now they work together, to design and create these up-cycled, re-engineered sculptural stories of a familiar past.

Find some truly unique art is Sydney with these fascinating creations, whether you're after a piece of wall art that's not just your every-day canvas, or a free standing little sculpture to treasure forever.
