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.

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,

Exhibition – SKL0 – LIMPEH Show – Singapore

In 2012 she got notoriety for her stickers around the streets of Singapore and became known as “The Sticker Lady” by the mainstream media – a name she does not like. Her stickers featured anecdotes of daily Singaporean life in Singlish and also the image of the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew, founding father of modern Singapore. Since then SKLO/ Sam Lo has come a long way. SKLO has since been featured in numerous exhibitions and galleries, participated in giving workshops and talks to the public as well as traveling overseas to paint the world. The LIMPEH Show “is a

Exhibition – Neon Golden – Hong Kong

Spotted this one over at Above Seconds blog! A whole slew of Australias finest will be heading over to Hong Kong next week in one of the largest collection of ozzie talent to go international since the brilliant Young & Free exhibition. Put together in conjunction with Ironlak and The Hours, and on the heels of the successful showing of Work In Progress, Neon Golden looks like it’ll be a smash hit already. With walls being done by the artists all around Hong Kong also, this is one that makes me wish I could jump on a plane again and see it all as it happens!

"Above Second is proud to join The Hours and Ironlak to present “Neon Golden” a group exhibition of works on paper.  Please join us to welcome back “Work in Progress” contributors Rone and Beastman to the gallery, and enjoy the work of 12 other talented Australian urban contemporary artists.

Curated by Australian-based creative group The Hours, ‘Neon Golden’ is an exhibition of new works on paper by a collective of world-class contemporary, street and graffiti artists who all share a rich history of friendship and collaboration.

This group exhibition is a celebration of new art movements in the Asia Pacific Region, and a showcase of these 14 artists’ diverse range of unique styles, subjects and techniques. From the realistic illustrations of Fintan Magee to the celestial geometric forms of Beastman, there is truly something inspirational about the diversity of styles in today’s urban art.  Though individually, the work might seem worlds apart, when coming together in collaborative murals the varied styles share the story of today’s contemporary art scene.

As well as the exhibition, this prolific group of artists will all be traveling from their current locations around the world to be in Hong Kong for a week long artist tour of the city, painting as many collaborative murals as possible with support from Ironlak. For this rare opportunity, please join the artists at the opening reception and contact Above Second for information about private commissions.

Email [email protected] to request an exhibition catalogue."

I mean, yeah wow – this one looks like it’ll be absolutely mad. Lucky Hong Kong indeed!!
