From beautifully rendered walls to amazing hand styles and flowing text, KAB101 is one of Australias finest graffiti artists.
Published Arthouse is a new gallery on the Adelaide graffiti and street art scene, and as their motto goes - "In the heart of Adelaide’s CBD, a small rupture in the surface of the underground has unveiled a stunning celebration of Australian street culture. Caged within the walls of an abandoned publishers house, an exciting new venue has emerged, where grandeur aligns with the raw grit of graffiti art."
Put an artist such as KAB101 together with a bunch of talented curators in a mad ass new venue, and you have a hell of an event – this is Australian graffiti art at its finest.
"Adelaide’s KAB101 is a long-serving stalwart of the Australian and international graffiti community.
As an artist of unique style and precision he has continued to innovate, invigorate and evolve his work beyond the expectations of canvas and medium. He is a figurehead of considerable influence, impacting on both the traditions of his art form and the aesthetic appreciations of the wider public.
This upcoming instalment visits his developments into calligraphy and script, invoking forgotten visual language through the integration of geometric and textural structures.
For one week only Kab 101′s works will be showcased in a 600sqm Gallery space dedicated to the art form. Over 20 new works will lay next to the best of his retrospective pieces including a giant wall installation"
