Exhibition – Choq World – At Juddy Roller

I can’t wait for Choq’s solo show this Friday night, I have been watching the progress over the last few months and all I can say is don’t miss this one.

Juddy Roller Presents – Choq World
Acclaimed Parisian street artist Choq’s first Australian solo show + launch for new video work by Choq and Selina Miles.
On Friday the 20th March, Juddy Roller is proud to present Choqworld, a solo exhibition based on the life and times, both good and bad of Choq’s world. 

Growing up in the gritty outer suburbs of the world’s most “romantic” city, Choq knows all to well about the dark underbelly of a place known only for it’s romantic scenery and artistic and cultural roots. 

It’s this dark underbelly that has led Choq down a path to recreate this world in a way we can all relate to. The work subtlety reflects his inner most personal longings, his dreams and his goals. 

His weapon of choice to express such complex emotions? Cartoons of course. 

Choq uses his cartoon worlds as a way to connect with a range of people; both young and old, rich and poor. This is the inherent beauty in Choq’s work. He crosses socio-economic values and ties in an attempt to bring people together as a whole and forget about the superficial differences. 

His work explores complex themes and attempts to offer a satirical critique of the modern world.

For one weekend only, Choqworld is set and the main exhibition space is being completely transformed. Don’t miss this one.

Presented by Juddy Roller.

Who: Choq.

What: Choq World.

When: This Friday the 20th of March from 6pm.

Exhibition – Never Ending – By Creature Creature – At No Vacancy Gallery

Next Friday be sure to get along to “Never Ending” an amazing show put together by Creature Creature, I helped launch these guys in Melbourne by curating their first solo show “Bruiser” at Chaotic Gallery over two years ago, its been a pleasure to work with and watch these guys on their journey with their unique style.

2015 is a big year for CreatureCreature as they prepare their next elaborate solo show at No Vacancy QV Gallery. Running from January 28 through to February 8, Never Ending is curated by Joshua Smith of Espionage Gallery and will officially launch on Friday January 30 at 6pm.

CreatureCreature is the artist duo Chanel Tang and Ambrose Rehorek who together play with concepts of duality, East meets West mentality, and the natural world. They first met at university studying fine art and commercial graphic design and as they ‘flirted their way through drawing’ formed an official union in 2011 under one name, CreatureCreature.

Since then, they have worked together creating murals in the south in the front office spaces of Revolver Creative, exhibiting at Chaotic Gallery in 2013, Just Another Agency and Rtist Gallery.

The new collection ‘Never Ending’ will showcase all their skills to date — a blend of illustration and design with strong historical Japanese references, mixed with a love of street art and contemporary symbols. It is heavily inspired by the feeling of movement and freedom in skate culture along with music produced by beat-makers who mix hip hop with a traditional Japanese atmospheric ideals. Chanel excitedly reveals “… Expect everything from drawings and paintings, to skate decks, vinyl toys, t-shirts and small installations.”

Who: Creature Creature

What: Never Ending

Where: No Vacancy Gallery 34-40 Jane Bell Lane, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 3000

Exhibition – Get Rich Or Try Dying – Marian Machismo – At Just Another Project Space

This summer Marian Machismo brings you ‘Get Rich Or Try Dying’, a coming of age exploration of a non linear generation, visually characterised by Sub- Cultural Symbolism and Generational Drag.

The Cultural Huckster has returned to Just Another Project Space with a new term she affectionally coined “Generational Drag”.

Get Rich Or Try Dying stands as an exploration of a previously undefined cultural phenomenon, a visitation of an idea and an account of the fashion of stylisation of a generation undefined by accepted norms.

With puns so sweet you will want to lick the wrapper, references that borderline nostalgia and a flair for performance, this is one show you will not want to miss.

Join us on the Super Sweet 16th of January from 6-9pm at the Just Another Project Space 2A/127 Greville Street, Prahran (entry off Grattan Street).

 

Who: Marian Machismo

What: Get Rich Or Try Dying

When: January 16th-25th, 6-9pm

Where: Just Another Project Space, 2A/127 Greville Street, Prahran, Melbourne
