Snapshots – The Light In Us – Isolde – Off The Kerb Gallery

Congratulations to Isolde on her first solo exhibition at the iconic Off The Kerb gallery in Collingwood, run by the ever busy and beautiful Shini. I would have to say the work of Isolde would definitely be some of my favourite paste ups I have seen on the streets of Melbourne, in her many art covered lanes. Isolde’s work always stood out, her powerful images amongst the rust and ruin of some grungy laneway, this is where her work shines. For those that couldn’t make it down to Off The Kerb, I managed to garb some photos while having my

Snapshots – Make Your Self At Home – GOODIE – Juddy Roller

Congratulation to my good friend and all round beautiful soul “GOODIE”, as she put up her first solo show at Juddy Roller a few weeks back. I feel these works gave you a little insight in to the mind of the artist, you always take a risk when you expose yourself like this, I think she executed it well. It’s always refreshing to see what the artists come up with in the Juddy Roller space, especially when there is and has been so much talent pass through those doors. So for those that couldn’t make it to the show here

Through The Lens November 2016 – David Russell Photography

The year is almost over and here we are once again showing you just some of the dope art that went down in the month of November. My favourite piece would have to be Mayo’s addition to the floor at the old lyric theatre where Rone had his exhibition. I am a big fan of Mayo’s work seeing it on this scale was epic and had to be seen to really appreciate the way he executed it. There aren’t too many pics from November so I will make up for a bumper addition next month, so till then stay cool

Sunshines Melbourne Streetart & Graffiti Top 10 – November 2016

Well, here we are. After a tentative step into summer, its cold again here in Melbourne, but the laneways and walls are just as full of people painting as they ever are! Once again, Dean Sunshine was out and about, snapping his pics for all the best things he saw around our fair city over the month of November – and this time, I’ve actually seen some of these pieces since I got home a few weeks ago! Its December already now, and its hitting crazy time already, Im sure there is a lot more left to come for the remainder

Rone – Empty – Scann3D/VR

After seeing one of the most amazing shows of all time, Rone’s Empty, and knowing the space would soon disappear – I had to introduce Rone to some good friends of mine, the crew at Scann3D.  Using their super high end 360 scanning technology – we spent about 5 hours in the space after the show closed one night scanning the entire show – and after many hours of intense rendering the guys at Scann3D have created this 360 capture of the show.  This technology is like google maps on steroids and is a unique and powerful format to capture

Exhibition – Stereodynamica – Felipe Pantone – Backwoods Gallery

Stereodynamica

On his ongoing journey to explore the notions of a never-ending development of technology at a stunning speed, Felipe Pantone brings us yet another experiment in multistable perception.
For his latest show called Stereodynamica, coming to Backwoods Gallery, this talented artist from Valencia will, for the first time in Australia, exhibit a series of stereoscopic works on canvas and paper.
In order to add yet another dimension to his vibrant, kinetic, almost three-dimensional works, Felipe Pantone worked with stereograms, a particular kind of imagery which hides a picture within a picture.

Working with installations, graffiti, kinetic art and graphic design, all the while covering an impressive range of mediums, Felipe Pantone developed a unique artistic style that has become recognisable around the world.
Fascinated with the internet, information and their constantly rising velocity, the artist set out to create his own language of communication, set in the futuristic environment of his artworks. His hyperactive and vivid style continues to evolve into an ultramodern aesthetic, complemented with an array of creative techniques and working methods.
With the use of bold, bright colours contrasted by the blacks and whites, typography, geometrical shapes, illusion and glossiness, Felipe Pantone rides on the waves of motion and perspective, introducing us to a kind of virtual world we never knew existed before.

The Stereodynamica exhibition will reveal the third dimension cunningly hidden in Felipe Pantone’s stereograms.
Usually used for the means of science, mathematics and space explorations, these flat, yet seemingly three-dimensional surfaces offer a trick, for which the viewers simply need to stare at the picture until the image starts to take shape.
The show is thus inviting you to put your perception to the test and have a one-of-a-kind relational experience with these otherworldly artworks.
Felipe Pantone

Born in Argentina, Felipe Pantone moved to Spain at a young age. An active participant in the worldwide graffiti community for almost two decades as a member of the legendary Ultra Boyz crew, he has matured into a versatile and truly modern contemporary artist, now working with a variety of mediums, including motion graphics, 3D modelling, and sculpture.
In his painting practices, Felipe draws inspiration from technological aesthetics, glitches, mistakes and other digital detritus. High contrast blacks, whites and acid colours allow him stand out from the barrage of visual pollution present in our modern world.
A graduate of Fine Arts, he straddles the gap between contemporary abstraction and graffiti, establishing his own, instantly recognisable and unique communication style, inspired by the notions of the digital, the internet, ever-evolving technology and its impact on modern-day culture.

In this series entitled Stereodynamica, Felipe continues his love affair with progress and forward motion, pushing his works even further to the extreme. Each piece is presented as two pieces, forming a stereogram image, adding a third dimension, an image hidden within an image. His versatility in techniques and mediums creates intriguing compositions, challenging perspectives both literally and figuratively.
His artworks aim to hypnotise, to evoke glitches inside the viewer as well as on canvas. Juxtaposing defined forms and blurred shapes, the monochrome and the vibrant, all meticulously executed with razor-sharp accuracy, the intriguing original art of Felipe Pantone continues to stand out in our contemporary world.
