Well, we got sent a mass of grand artwork the just yesterday, and I’d be remiss if I didnt share it with you all. Alas, we missed getting something up about the opening of this rad show, Daek Williams Swords and Society, but this will give you a really great overview of the work and how absolutely fkn rad it all was.
I can still remember attending my first exhibition of Daeks work in Melbourne, at the much loved and lamented RTIST Gallery. One piece, an egyptian styled work held motorised pieces that allowed it to “transform”, and it was there, really, that I fell in love also with his painted works – that earlier show was brilliant, and seeing how far he has come in the past three or four years is grand (you can check out the shots from that show here).
Take a look at the video from the opening ..
Theres always been something special about his realism infused fantastical works, and a prime example of this is the piece he did of the eminent producer from Perths burgeoning dnb scene, Shockone – a brilliant portraits of a subject that is a grand example of the kind of work that Daek can produce – but that is just a small portion of the fantastic shit that I have seen in this gallery of images. This is Daeks second show at Linton and Kay, and it is most definitely his finest to date.
From walls to canvas, Daeks work stands out – check out all the images below and I’m sure you’ll agree ….
