Momentarium is the latest series of work from Christopher Hancock. Following on from his successful show Depressionism earlier in the year, this new body of work sees Hancock moving forward to immerse himself and his artistic processes in the current moment, the now. Leaving behind pre-meditated construction, these works embody a process of applied chance and appreciation for what ‘is’. The artist has developed a harmonious bond between paint and consciousness, allowing both to flow freely into new and exciting places. Who: Christopher Hancock. What:  Momentarium.

Exhibition – NEVER FORGET TO REMEMBER – Adrian Doyle – Dark Horse Experiment – Blender Studios.

NEVER FORGET TO REMEMBER Adrian Doyle Its been three years since controversial artist, Adrian Doyle’s last exhibition. This is a long time for an artist that has had over 20 solo shows. But the Melbourne based urban artist has been busy doing almost everything. In the last three years Doyle has created his own reality show, created large scale public murals, he offended much of the urban art world by painting Rutledge lane Baby blue, and had one of his public art works changed after Doyle painted a portrait of his dad on the cross. More recently he created an

Exhibition – Post Graffiti Pacific – aMBUSH Gallery – Sydney

Some of my favourite kiwi artists are heading down to Oz this week, with another rad group show at aMBUSH Gallery – Post-Graffiti Pacific. Held at the new space that those Sydney legends Bill and have put together “Post–Graffiti Pacific is not just another graffiti exhibition. It’s a statement and a definition – a bold assertion of language, history, culture, expression and the significance of place in art making. Curator Olivia Laita and her line-up of seven leading Post–Graffiti Pacific artists are proposing, with conviction, the dawn of a new movement in art. Post–Graffiti Pacific features the multidisciplinary work of Auckland-based artists

Exhibition – Tipping Point – Theo Robinson – House Of Bricks

Tipping Point Theo Robinson, 2015 The art in Tipping Point is the result of four years of painting, both in the studio and on the street, culminating in my first solo gallery show. This show has been inspired by the aesthetics of minimalism, abstraction and suprematism, as seen through the lens of graffiti, street art and muralism. Over the past four years I have experimented with textures, application methods, shape, design and colour to develop images that have a sense of movement and depth. In each image I aim to capture the dynamic movement associated with the creation of form,

Event & Live Art – Art Series Hotels Conversation Corner – Art & About – Sydney

To start off the week, we have a bit of cool news on an event that will be happening as a part of Art & About in Sydney next weekend.

On Saturday 22nd September, at 1pm, Art Series Hotels will be playing host to the “Art Series Conversation Corner” in which they will be presenting a whole bunch of panels with creative industry types, as well as several well known artists including Stormie Mills, Anthony Lister,  Vincent Fantauzzo, Paul Davies and Sarah Goffman.

Our part of the news? Well, I’m pretty damn excited because I”ve been invited up to Sydney speak on the “Art Outside The Gallery Panel” alongside the aMBUSH guys (Bill Dimas and John Wiltshire,), Stormie Mills, Anthony Lister and Rachel Healy from City Of Sydney. After our talk, the artist will be giving a talk on working in the industry, and then I’ll be doing some live painting with Takie and Justin Feuerring!

Read on for all the info, as well as the timetable …

“On Saturday 22 September, Melbourne’s Art Series Hotel Group is bringing together some of the country’s most exciting contemporary artists, street artists and designers at The Art Series Hotels Conversation Corner as part of this year’s Art & About Sydney.

Winner of the Archibald Prize People’s Choice Award Vincent Fantauzzo, Stormie Mills, Anthony Lister and local artist Paul Davies, will be just a few of the artists who will be sharing their experiences about making art their career across two talks at 1pm and 2pm at warehouse gallery space 74-76 Oxford Street.

The talks will be hosted by Jane O’Neill, in-house art curator for Art Series Hotels and operator of Art Aficionado Tours.

O’Neill explains; “The Art Series Hotel Group has proven to be a major supporter of the arts following the opening of three hotels which pay tribute to some of Australia’s most well-known artists – The Cullen, The Olsen and The Blackman. The initiation of this free event affirms the Art Series commitment to the broader art community and we’re looking forward to some feisty, funny conversations about contemporary art with the Sydney public.”

From 3pm, the venue will be transformed into the Red Bull Beat Suite with live street art
demonstrations and installations from Takie, Justin Feuerring and Facter among other street artists to be announced.

Red Bull will be serving up some not to be missed cocktail creations and guests can continue the conversation to the sounds of the Red Bull Beat Suite.
