A Hamilton Yoga Studio Portrait

May 2023

We are very proud to introduce to you our very own Trevor Dickinson “G.U.O.O.F. Hall – Home of Hamilton Yoga”.

Many iconic sights have been captured in the unique style of Trevor Dickinson. You might be familiar with some of his artwork around Newcastle, from fridge magnets or exhibitions featuring the ordinary, the extraordinary, the odd, the forgotten or the iconic not only in Newcastle, but other places in Australia, Canberra, and the UK.

Trevor Dickinson is an artist known for his unique style of artwork that combines digital and traditional mediums. He is particularly recognized for his vibrant and dynamic cityscape paintings, which often feature urban landscapes and architectural elements.

The artist's compositions often emphasize the geometric shapes and patterns found in urban environments. His attention to detail and use of strong lighting and shadows create a sense of depth and atmosphere in his paintings. Dickinson's work captures the essence of the cityscape, conveying the bustling energy and architectural beauty of urban spaces.

Now, our very own iconic G.U.O.O.F. hall in Hamilton, the home of Hamilton Yoga, has been transcribed by the skillful and cheeky drawing pen of Trevor Dickinson. We are chuffed and grateful for him taking the time to capture this historic Newcastle building at Gregson Park.
