Artist, Holly Eva with some of her artworks.

Holly Eva

Through the raw art of painting messy figures, Holly Eva bares the essence of human emotions. Her canvas becomes a mirror of her own intimate stories, unveiling her vulnerabilities around the female form. With her messy mark-making technique, Holly creates an authentic and unfiltered connection, especially with women who have weathered life's ups-and-downs, evoking genuine empathy and understanding. Her art becomes a vivid reflection of the shared human experiences of feelings that evoke "not enough", making her work undeniably real and relatable.

"We are always enough in every single moment and every situation."

Holly Eva is an Australian contemporary artist. She is known for her freestyle minimalistic abstract work. Born in Camden, Holly grew up on the Central Coast of New South Wales, and now operates from her studio in Bulli in the Illawarra area.

Holly breaks conventional art rules, describing her painting process as a beautiful, chaotic dance. Her art is intuitive and heart-felt, being guided by the painting itself rather than preconceived ideas.

She has held exhibitions in Sydney and Wollongong and sells her art worldwide. Holly has been featured on Channel 9’s The Block Shop, My Kitchen Rules, Selling Houses Australia, and Belle Magazine. Holly has been with previous galleries including Paper Pear, Satch n Co and Martine Gallery. Holly Eva has participated in three art fairs in Sydney and continues to work with collectors worldwide.

Holly’s work has won accolades, including the Thirroul Seaside Festival Art Prize (2018) and has also been a two-time Mosman Art Prize Finalist, along with other prizes. She has collaborated with celebrities such as Dr Tio, Delta Goodrum, Trent Robinson, and Taryn Brumfitt, who was awarded the 2023 Australian of the Year.

With strong determination, Holly ardently pursues her goals, steadily carving her path to success, her unwavering dedication and passion, making her a true artist to watch and collect.

It was a joy to curate such a vibrant and lively collection of artworks to display here on Circa 64 Gallery, and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
