Exhibition – E.L.K. & Will Coles – Art Equity – Sydney

Well this is a bit of a powerhouse exhibition join-up right here – the amazing E.L.K. (Luke Cornish) and Will Coles getting together to put on a show together down at Art Equity in Sydney.

Both of these guys are at the top of their game, and I know that with this show we can expect something a little different – with Will Coles having just been down here in Melbourne recently, smashing up a whole pile of his trademarked concrete pieces, and with some preview pieces of some bronze casted sculptural pieces from E.L.K. we know that alongside their staple awesomeness, there is going to be some great little surprises at the show!

Take a  look at a shitload of preview photos from some of the works in the show, and head down and check them out this Thursday night down at Art Equity

Exhibition – Vans The Omega – Into The Light – Sydney

On Wednesday night, the amazing Vans The Omega will be holding an exhibition in Sydney, bringing his unique style and patterned brilliance to the walls of The Tate. Now, we shouldn’t need to introduce you to Vans, if you know your art here in Australia, but in case you haven’t heard of one of the top artists in our country, maybe you should go and check out his website before reading all the info for the show below …

“A solo exhibition by Vans The Omega in collaboration with East Editions, The Hours and Karton Group, featuring a range of unique hand painted furniture and homewares, sculptural works and installations, new mixed media paintings and a limited edition print set.

Roughly based in Adelaide Australia, Vans the Omega has been creating and painting letterforms for over two decades, which has seen him travel around the globe consistently since 2000. Recognised in the global graffiti scene for his attention to detail and search for perfection within letter structure and technique, most of his influences come from ancient scripts, architecture, engineering, nature and the idea of movement or balance.

His use of sharp highly technical machine like shapes and seemingly impossible patterns mixed with a traditional graffiti aesthetic, blend together to produce new innovative artworks which continue to push boundaries and perfect his craft. Vans The Omega is extremely well travelled and has exhibited artwork and painted murals all over the world.”

This will be an excellent display of work from one of the best practitioners on walls across the world, so head down to check it all out yourselves.

Exhibition – Cam Scale – Iron Oxied – Sydney

This week, Melbourne artist Cam Scale hits one of Sydneys coolest galleries, The Tate, for his solo show “Iron Oxied”.

Iron Oxied will be a grand exhibition of small works on found objects, with Scale gathering a whole bunch of unique, and ohhh, mildly familiar, metal canvases on which he’s applied his more than sufficient skills.

As Scale says, the show will be “Exploring the elements around us, our human interaction with nature and existence within the universe.” Take a look at a couple of the process shots below …
