Arts patronage has been crucial to the development of the arts for centuries and is core to our understanding of culture. Many of history’s most celebrated masterpieces, or even art movements, would not have come to fruition without the support of such benefactors. This bilateral patron-client relationship has evolved since then, and continues to evolve in the contemporary art landscape. Hear from modern day patron Len Warson and artist Rone on their relationship and creative collaborations that include Rone’s ALPHA and OMEGA projects.

Len Warson
Len Warson is an art collector and self-taught architect and with a passion for design and interiors. His unique approach to business has seen the Glenvill brand become a household name with a 58 year strong reputation synonymous with exceptional quality and style. Glenvill is developing one of the most significant urban renewal residential projects; YarraBend in Alphington, Melbourne.

Rone
Finding the friction point between beauty and decay is a thread that runs through much of Rone’s work. As a street artist best known for his haunting, stylised images of women’s faces, he understands better than most that beauty can be fleeting. Seeing his artworks gradually worn away by natural and human elements has taught him to appreciate the unexpected beauty of an image as it begins to blend back into its more prosaic surroundings. Rone has gone from spearheading Melbourne’s fledgling street art movement in the early 2000s, as a member of the Everfresh crew, to being a celebrated fixture on the international street art scene. These days, Rone’s work is found as often in galleries as it is on the streets. His work has been acquisitioned by the National Gallery of Australia, commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria to work with Jean Paul Gaultier and shown by galleries in London, Berlin and New York.
