Snapshots – Comic-Con – Perth 2014

Apologies for the lateness of this post, being kept busy with all the FORM festival activities.

So, a week or so ago, I checked out the Comic Con convention in Perth. Man, it did not disappoint. Such an awesome day of art and art fans; Comic Con always has such a great community vibe to it. A lot of people put in a huge effort with their costumes, providing an interesting snapshot of not only the fan base, but of the creativity involved in putting their look together. It’s great to check out the artists who are in attendance and put some faces to names. All in all it’s always a real treat to attend such a well put together convention.

Snapshots – Nasty Goreng – The Yok and Sheryo – Perth

Checked out opening of the ‘Nasty Goreng’ show by Yok and Sheryo last Friday night. Tuner gallery was packed with eager art loving peeps and the exhibition didn’t disappoint.  Traditional Batik textiles featured heavily, staring some not so traditional Yok and Sheryo characters.

The exhibition also included contributions from a handful of artists, including Amok Island and Feks. Large character sculptures were scattered throughout the gallery; it’s so awesome to see such a recognisable style in an unfamiliar format. Oh, and there was a snake temple. SNAKE TEMPLE!

If you’re in the area, get down to Turner and have a look for yourselves. Show’s on till the 19th of April!

Exhibition – The Yok & Sheryo – Nasty Goreng – Perth

Nasty Goreng debuts on Friday the 21st of March.  This will be Perth’s first look at the duo’s work since their kismet pairing some years ago. The teaming of these two talented artists is quite unique, both artists’ contribution can be seen in their work, neither voice is lost –  instead the pairing is cohesive and flawless. Yok and Sheryo’s work has grown more intricate, crazy, and loose all at the same time.
If you only see one exhibition this year, make it this one!

Snapshots – Daek William – Welcome To The World Of… – Linton and Kay Galleries – Perth

Sorry for the delay in this post folks.

Tuesday the 2nd of July saw the opening night of ‘Welcome To The World Of…‘ at Linton and Kay Galleries by Brooklyn based Perth artist, Daek William. The first solo exhibition in his hometown since his move to Brooklyn was a huge show, both in the the body of work and the opening night turn out. The night was distinctly Daek, with trademark renderings of folded and pictorial headdresses and the wine served in tea cups. Daek had made a lot of the work tactile and articulated, encouraging the public to engage and touch, rub, flick on a switch and even sniff the works. The works responded by automated moving parts, scents and change of colour. Too often an artist, whether intentionally or not, alienates the viewer and puts their work on a pedestal that the public must keep a respectful distance from. Daek’s background as a street artist seems to have carried over into his fine artwork exhibitions.

‘Welcome To The World Of…’  was a tight show by a talented original artist.  If this is any indication of things to come, Daek William is one to watch.
