Interview – Heesco – Incessant – 2015

Time is a constant. You can be assured, that no matter what happens within your life, no matter the trials and tribulations, loves and loses, that time will continue to march it’s way across your existence. I find myself contemplating time as I write this intro. It’s pretty hard to believe that it’s been five years since I last interviewed Heesco – it could have been yesterday. In some ways it feels like I’ve just met him at the Sweet Streets festival,  just posted an interview and just painted our first wall together down in Prahran. But, no, that was five fucking

Exhibition – Two One – Define Nothing – Backwoods Gallery – Collingwood

Damn, It’s July already, how did that happen? … Ok, so Two One has his latest show coming up in a couple of weeks at Backwoods Gallery called “Define Nothing”. From his awesome elephant throwies back in the day, some of the amazing pieces and collaborations he’s done lately, to his intricate gallery work make Hiro one of my favourite artists in Melbourne.

From the Backwoods press release: “Hiroyasu Tsuri describes his work as “psychological portraits and metaphorical landscapes”; subconscious observations and inverted dreams represented with an earthy expressionism.

Hiroyasu gained his fame on the streets under the name TwoOne. His alter ego has dominated the Australian landscape over the past decade, earning him a reputation as one of Australia’s hardest working and most ambitious young artists.

Recently, Hiroyasu’s focus on studio work has allowed him to find a new audience, exhibiting in major galleries across Australia.

In July, Hiroyasu will return to Backwoods Gallery with “Define Nothing”, a expansive collection of philosophical contemplations presented through sculpture and works on paper.

“Define Nothing” opens on the 12th of July and runs until the 28th at Backwoods Gallery, Melbourne, Australia.”
