Exhibition – David Soukup – Introspective – Espionage Gallery – Adelaide

Well, damn!! This is one show that I wish I could get over to Adelaide for – someone who in my opinion is one of the top tier stencil artists in the USA, if not the world. Espionage Gallery will be playing host to David Soukup next week, and its going to be fkn grand – allegedly this show has been two years in the planning! Heres all the details …

"David Soukup (Chicago) credits two college professors for turning him onto the stencil medium while pursuing a degree in illustration. Early on, both were able to see his incredible talent for photorealism and extreme attention to detail. Previously, his art was limited to what was possible only with graphite pencils and pens, but spray paint stencils offered him a whole new route of exploration. Drawn to the process, execution, and dedication required, David embraced and immediately began to explore the boundaries of the medium. David was quickly recognized internationally for his stencil works for his finger-numbing precision and perfection.

The urban environment became an immediate focus for David’s work. Living in Chicago, he was surrounded by an endless possibility of inspiration and a city that showcased some of the best architecture in the world. Using elements of graphic design, collage, mixed media, and reclaimed materials, David’s work is a reflection and experience of his everyday life. His work has taken on several themes and approaches, but has recently returned to his original obsession of photo-realism as he begins to document his daily routine and emotional response to the city around him.

His artwork has been shown in Chicago, Detroit, San Francisco, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Long Beach, Grand Rapids, St Louis, and Australia. His paintings have been used in numerous film and television productions, and has been featured in Juxtapoz, Hi-Fructose, Artist-a-Day, and many other local and online publications."

Looks awesome, and just yet another brilliant show from the guys over at Espionage Gallery – nice going, looking forward to checking out all the pics from this one!

Adorning the walls will be a mix of artwork across various mediums, themes and styles from the ever-growing group of artists involved in GTNBZY, featuring artwork from Aaron Schirmer, Alex Kwong, Alex Gilchrist, Dabman, Dan Adams, Donovan Christie, Fletch, Fredsticks, Jelena Vujnovic, Joel Sanders, JPEG, Kevin Rumbelow, Luke Trevorrow, Nick Strutton, Pip Cocciolone, Roger, Stitchfase and Tiff Rysdale. Luke Trevorrow will also be painting live on the balcony throughout the night, courtesy to Clinic116.

Fancy Sauce kicks off at 8pm on July 13th at the Light Hotel, with free entry before 9pm and $10 entry from 9pm onwards."

Exhibition & Video – KAB101 – Published Arthouse – Adelaide

From beautifully rendered walls to amazing hand styles and flowing text, KAB101 is one of Australias finest graffiti artists.

Published Arthouse is a new gallery on the Adelaide graffiti and street art scene, and as their motto goes -  "In the heart of Adelaide’s CBD, a small rupture in the surface of the underground has unveiled a stunning celebration of Australian street culture. Caged within the walls of an abandoned publishers house, an exciting new venue has emerged, where grandeur aligns with the raw grit of graffiti art."

Put an artist such as KAB101 together with a bunch of talented curators in a mad ass new venue, and you have a hell of an event – this is Australian graffiti art at its finest.

"Adelaide’s KAB101 is a long-serving stalwart of the Australian and international graffiti community.

As an artist of unique style and precision he has continued to innovate, invigorate and evolve his work beyond the expectations of canvas and medium. He is a figurehead of considerable influence, impacting on both the traditions of his art form and the aesthetic appreciations of the wider public.

This upcoming instalment visits his developments into calligraphy and script, invoking forgotten visual language through the integration of geometric and textural structures.

For one week only Kab 101′s works will be showcased in a 600sqm Gallery space dedicated to the art form. Over 20 new works will lay next to the best of his retrospective pieces including a giant wall installation"

Also check out this awesome video just released for the show -

With BIZ just announcing a show, and KAB101 doing the same, which of Australias top will come out and bring us grand shit next? Eh, who knows, we have more than enough to love with this one. Head down and see it all for yourself – its going to be grand.

Exhibition – RAWHIDE- C R E W / C U T S – Adelaide

 

Alas, we missed getting this up in time for the opening of the show (welcoem to the world of Guatemalan internet – or the lack thereof!), but it looks like a great one! Crew / Cuts will be on for two weeks and you should get down to see it – RAWHIDE is one mad collaboration between two talented artists, acting as one!

"Adelaide staunch and fertile duo, Ankles and Smile, of the rollin’ Rawhide crew, return to the gallery in a follow up to their debut exhibition ‘Frontier’ last November (editor, see my website for pics). Friday, 29th March, sees Rawhide present their second show, ‘Crew Cuts’ featuring new work in cut paper.

Ankles and Smile’s own collage work predate their collaborative vandalism as Rawhide, so they’ve put our paint rollers down for the moment to combined forces in paper collage, the least popular artform known to man.

The work aims to be the visual equivalent of sample-heavy scratch DJs such as Cut Chemist, Kid Koala and The Avalanches. It is a time-consuming, yet therapeutic process digging through crates of pre-1970s magazines and books, removing type and image from their original context and rearranging it to form some self-referential narrative."

Check out the video for the show below!

Exhibition – Veil of Anonymity – Published ArtHouse – Adelaide

Ironlak and Published ArtHouse presents Linz, Reals, Sofles, Meks, Sauce, Tues, Vans the Omega & Treas in ‘Veil of Anonymity’.
From the press release “The title ‘Veil of Anonymity’ is somewhat ambiguous in itself. While graffiti artists seek to be seen and appreciated, there is often a disconnection between a writer’s nom de plume and their personal self. Masking their identity in an effort to maintain a ‘Veil of Anonymity’ from prying eyes.
In a national first, the Australian Ironlak Family have come together to exhibit new works at Published ArtHouse – 11 Canon St in Adelaide for what will no doubt be a truly incredible showcase of talent.
The opening reception runs from 6-10pm on Friday 1st March. And the exhibition will continue on Saturday & Sunday between 11am- 6pm.”
