Street art exponent to shine in Perth

Acclaimed street artist Rone is bringing his immersive art experience to Perth as part of a collaboration with Centenary Galleries Building at The Art Gallery of Western Australia (AGWA)

To run from July 1-September 30, the exhibition will take over 12 rooms across both floors in the historic Centenary Galleries Building.

Rone, who goes by just one name but was born Tyrone Wright, will bring the full installation of TIME • RONE, and will create brand-new spaces specifically for the West Australian exhibition, with two new mural works exclusive to Perth.

The immersive installation will feature the TIME Bar, an artistic prohibition themed bar, the RONEART Dinner, a limited-capacity full sensory dining experience, and the RONE Store, an online and in-gallery merchandise store.

It will be Rone's only exhibition for 2024, over 100,000 patrons are expected to attend.

The event supported by the Western Australian Government.

Rone has previously painted murals in East Perth in 2018 and Bunbury in 2016.

"Having these types of exhibitions is fantastic for our community, creating vibrancy and offering entertainment for locals and visitors," said state tourism minister Rita Saffioti.

"We're always on the lookout for diverse ranges of events across sports, music and the arts, and having TIME • RONE will certainly be another drawcard for our year-round calendar.

"I definitely encourage Western Australians to head to AGWA to check out this fantastic exhibit, particularly as a great family activity during the July school holidays."

Geelong-born Rone has painted in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Havana, Paris, Berlin, London and Tokyo. 

His work is displayed in galleries including the National Gallery of Australia and the National Gallery of Victoria.
