Tom O’Hern is an artist based in Hobart. My first encounter with his work was outside AdArt, where he had just finished a 4x4m wall painting of a general (very napoleonesque) and a king. I really liked his drawing style with thin black lines. “Reminds me on Tasmanias colonial history” I said to him “Love your work” I added. “Thanks. Yeah didn’t think of that” he replied. I nodded friendly and jumped on my bike. Whilst I rode down the street I realised, that he probably took the piss out of me and i smiled to myself.
