Duality is a site-specific installation exhibiting in the mezzanine space of Magma Galleries. Immerse yourself in the unique circular space designed by Tom Kovac as Drez transforms the mezzanine into an intimate dwelling, captivating viewers through light, colour, and interaction.

Drez presents a new light sculpture within this setting as an extension to his mural and painting practice. Working within the optical art canon, the sculpture is a resin poured art object. The light is designed to alter space through the use of interactive light elements controlled by the user via a smartphone.



Drez is a multidisciplinary artist whose bold colour installations reimagine contemporary art dialogues within a modern public art context. Drez is known for his large-scale ‘Chromatic Pulse’ murals, adorned across buildings in Australia and abroad, but has a multidisciplinary practice grounded in experimentation and his roots as a street artist. His work pushes major art historical frameworks including Op-Art and Modernism into refreshed conversation, simultaneously establishing new perspectives on what contemporary street art can be.
