Snapshots & Video – Daek William – Sword and Society

Well, we got sent a mass of grand artwork the just yesterday, and I’d be remiss if I didnt share it with you all. Alas, we missed getting something up about the opening of this rad show, Daek Williams Swords and Society, but this will give you a really great overview of the work and how absolutely fkn rad it all was. I can still remember attending my first exhibition of Daeks work in Melbourne, at the much loved and lamented RTIST Gallery. One piece, an egyptian styled work held motorised pieces that allowed it to “transform”, and it was there,

Exhibition – Bitetime – Ian Mutch – Just Another Project Space

Celebrating the release of a brand new ‘superzine’, “Bitetime” is a selection of artworks, drawings, random travels and experiences, by Ian Mutch. The exhibition explores beauty through nature and narrative, capturing snippets of the artist’s life. From his childhood in Africa, travels through Asia and Japan, to the surrounds of his coastal studio in south-west Australia, these artworks immerse the viewer into a detailed view on the world. “Bitetime” is both an exhibition and a mini journal – a limited edition art booklet, neatly packaged with a build-yourself bitetime character and vinyl sticker. Ian Mutch is no stranger to print.

Exhibition – INTERSECTION – JOHN ASLANIDIS & MAYONAIZE – Juddy Roller

INTERSECTION JOHN ASLANIDIS & MAYONAIZE Intersection is a collaborative exhibition between John Aslanidis and Mayonaize. Aslanidis’ work explores a sensorary dimension, which exists between sound and vision, where as graffiti has been a major influence on Mayonaize’s eclectic oeuvre. The contrasting approaches result in unique images that merge to become a fusion of sonic vibrations and calligraphic improvised text derived from graffiti.

Exhibition – Apocalypse – Jonathan Guthmann – Backwoods Gallery

This body of work, simply but appropriately titled “Apocalypse” consists of a series of images based on the last book of the Bible: Revelation. This late first century visionary text purports to describe a series of prophetic visions delivered to an imprisoned Christian apostle, who reveals himself in the text as “John”. The visions contain some of the most vivid, powerful and at times disturbing images in our literary heritage. Guthmann, himself a student of the critical study of religion, is currently working on a written thesis which evaluates the cultural and literary background of the text of the Apocalypse,

Carbon X – Writers’ Bench – Melbourne

Carbon Festival has without a doubt been one of Team Invurt’s favourite events over the last few years – showcasing some of the world’s most successful creatives at the top of their game. Each year we have been so impressed with the line up and the management of the event, so we are super excied to hear Carbon is back in 2015. Invurt has attended and covered every Carbon event since it’s inception with a live blog and photo coverage of each event. There are soooo many great memories from the last few years; including meeting some amazing artists and people,

Exhibition – Fezwitch – No Frills Caviar – Melbourne

We’ve been enjoying Melbourne street artist Fezwitch’s work around the traps for some time now; his clever, witty pieces to be found right across the city.

Some of our favourite works from Fezwitch are his repurposed floppy discs – if you’ve walked the citys laneways, chances are you’ve seen them hidden in the nooks and crannies of the city. He’s also quite a prolific pasteup artist, and has had works in Street Advent and also participated in last years Paste Modernism 3 at Cockatoo Island – his pieces always containing that cynical vibe for which he has become well known.

No Frills Caviar will be featuring a collection of typographical and satirical Witchisms, it will include original screen-prints, stencils and gilcee prints – all the good shit.

“The Maggid (storyteller) of Fezwitch is a Melbourne based graphicdesigner / street artist.He work conveys the power of visual communication and typography through satire and his obsession with vintage technology.

“In this consumer-driven society we tend to forget about what is important. My work is about not taking life too seriously and poking fun at consumer brands we all live and breathe by. It’s also about letting the viewer interpret their own message”.

Head down to Egg Gallery in Collingwood to see the mans work for yourself – it’ll be well worth the trip!

Who: Fezwitch
What: No Frills Caviar
Where: Egg Gallery, 66a Johnston st, Collingwood VIC
When: Show opens Friday 22nd November from 6pm til 9pm. Show runs until 2nd December
