Pilar Basa Features in The Art Room

Forrester’s Art Room Feature Artist this February: Pilar Basa.

We welcome local artist Pilar Basa as our second artist to exhibit work in The Art Room.

Nestled in the corner of Forrester’s Surry Hills, The Art Room is a cosy space that aims to share creativity. The Art Room partners with creatives to give them a platform to showcase their work to our community. The feature artist will rotate throughout the year, and we encourage you to relax, enjoy wine and nibbles while viewing the artworks from local talent. Find out more here.

Let’s find out more about this month’s exhibiting artist, Pilar Basa.

Pilar is a local illustrator, artist, and designer working here in Sydney. Pilar has worked extensively in a number of different areas from creating boutique bakery packaging in NYC to working with worldwide brands such as Hershey’s. Her tools of choice are Gouache and pigment markers and Procreate, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop for all things digital.


Pilar has a passion for drawing, whether it be a classic Aussie scene, meals, bugs or anything in between! She explained to us “I believe that we can find beauty in everything that surrounds us and that just a calm moment of hilarity is the key to enjoying this wholeheartedly.”

Pilar’s unique, quirky artworks will be blessing our walls for the next 6 weeks! This particular collection ‘Don’t Play With Your Food’ was originally created to for the kids at Randwick Children’s Hospital – to help support the great work they do, Pilar will be donating 25% of profits back to the hospital, how good is that!


We look forward to seeing you at The Art Room gallery!
