Snapshots – Abyss 607 – Guardians Of The Threshold – Off The Kerb Gallery

For those of you who live Northside will be familiar with Abyss 607 and his work, with his unmistakable style adorning Melbourne’s walls, doors , footpaths and even trackside, his work is everywhere. If I can use one word to sum up his show it would be “WOW”, I was super impressed and surprised to say the least, well done Abyss 607, the exhibition space had a serious case of the measles, virtually every piece had a red sold sticker on it. For those of you who could not make it, here are a bunch of pics I took.

Exhibition – Observance – Ryan Boserio – Melbourne

Over this time his pieces that have popped up in both solo shows in Perth as well as group shows here in Melbourne (with the odd wall popping up here and there), all of which have hinted at a body of work that looks to have been realised with Observance – and damn, I’m fkn excited to see it all.

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!
