Reg Mombassa (a.k.a Chris O'Doherty) has been a musician, clothing designer and artist. Instantly recognisable, a Mombassa image is marked by the fusion the mundane and surreal. Beneath his whimsy is always searing social commentary.

In 'Pavilion Richelieu', one of the iconic glass pyramids of the Louvre peeks into frame. Drawing inspiration from the rich exterior of the palace, Mombassa captures what is easy to ignore when rushing into the museum. Shifting the focus from the art within, the artist shows how inspiration can be found in unsuspecting places.

An Antipodean icon, Mombassa is one of Australia's most collected, celebrated and recognised contemporary artists. From Patrick White to Elton John, Mombassa continues to be collected widely and worn on tees.
