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,

Exhibition – QWUX Presents – 91xnmb – Lo-Fi Collective – Sydney

We’ve been big fans of the work from QWUX (not only his own artwork – but the many shows that he has curated), for ages now. When we saw this this morning, we were pretty damn pleased to hear that he’s doing another one – this time with the crew from Lo-Fi!

QWUX did a bit of an interview in The Brag recently, and had this to say about the show –

“91xnmp is a quick little passion project I whipped up. Basically, it thrust upon me to organise a show while working with the guys from The Tate, so, naturally, I took it as an opportunity to put together a show full of my favourite artists at the moment.

All the artists in 91xnmb come from a more illustrative background, often working with characters/portraits and other figurative work. I chose everyone because they have either influenced my own work in one way or another, or they have blown my mind with what they have been doing lately. I went for 16 artists as its the 16th show that i have curated and i thought that was a nice tie in. Most of the artists are sydney locals too, guys like Chris Yee, Nico and Alex Lehours are killing it at the moment, and literally lived less than 10 mins from my house till i moved recently.

I also looked outside of Sydney to some new artists i havent met, but really enjoy their work, TeamNigh has been killing it lately, as has Ryan Parsons. Then there are the guys whose work I just love to bits, Josh “KID9″ Thorsen, Mark Drew and Yewot are all guys I know personally, but love their work and collect it myself. Anyway, there is something for everyone, and from what In see of the works coming through its going to be a killer show – these guys are doing me proud!”

This is the 16th show that Qwux has curated, and if you look at the title upsidedown, it actually says QWUX16 – pretty damn clever we think! Oh, and as a bonus, Convaire will be doing a bad ass DJ set on the night as well. Can’t wait to see all the pics from this one – if you’re lucky enough to be in Sydney, head down there this Thursday to see it with your own unwavering eyes!
