In 2008 Fane Flaws was informed by a very serious (and very talented) NZ artist, that his work was “very, very, good... In fact,” he said, holding up his thumb and fore-finger, millimetres apart, “Fane you are this close to being a serious artist!”

Amused by these occasional snide asides, Fane’s response was to go home and make the painting - ‘Self Portrait as an Almost Serious Artist’, the image he is using to promote this show - and decided he liked the idea: Fane Flaws - Almost Serious!

Fane Flaws has been writing music and playing guitar since he was 17, a professional musician for 13 years, a graphic artist and designer since 1971, spent 20 years directing music videos and TVCs, and has been painting since 1979. With the kind help of numerous friends and collectors, Fane has amassed a collection which looks back over “45 blundered years.”

He will be setting up a working-studio area at the Hastings Community Art Centre, where he will work for the duration of the festival, including a speed-portrait salon, a re-creation of his living room with a telly running selected video clips, a performance space which will feature action painting to live improvised music and a series of live concerts from the Fane Flaws songbook.

Says Fane: “It sounds grand - it’s just a list of songs. This should be a fun couple of weeks - come and have a look and a listen.”
