Snapshots – Outsiders Featuring Twoone – At Backwoods Gallery

For those that missed out on last nights show “Outsiders” featuring Twoone, returning from berlin for this show, I was pretty impressed with what I saw it was a combination of his usual character stylings painted on these amazing light boxes.

Being painted on the glass or perspex you could see all the brush strokes through the light shining from behind, the first room had this industrial noise playing which was quite confronting but really set the mood.

The show will be running till October the 19th at  Backwoods Gallery in Easey Street Collingwood.

Video – Transitions – DOES

Check out this great video featuring DOES called Transitions, capturing his travels around the globe, where he finds a lot of inspiration for his work.

There is also some footage of his past career in the national soccer league where he was very successful, until an injury sidelined his soccer career, he then focussed his talents on his art.

I was lucky enough to see DOES paint all over Melbourne when he was here last, after watching this video it was good to understand where his inspiration comes from.

Exhibition – Heesco – Liminal – Sydney

Our good mate Heesco has a new show coming up, this time at The Tate in Sydney!

Its been a while since we saw a solo show from the man, who has been busy over the last year painting across Oz, Mongolia and NYC – and having seen the new direction that the work in this show has been taking over the past six months or so, we’re pretty excited to see how it all turns out. This latest show veers towards the abstract, but abstract in the way that is more than familiar for those of you that know Heescos work. Explosive, elemental and with a shitload of energy, Heescos Liminal is a gorgeous riot of colour.

“Liminal – adjective

1. relating to a transitional or initial stage of a process.

2. occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold.

With Liminal, there is a hyperfocus at the central point of Heesco’s many and varied influences from graffiti, comics, fantasy and sci-fi illustration to gestural and hard-edge abstraction, surrealism, and age-old figurative painting. It’s

an epic clash of opposing ideals and dynamics resulting in works that burst with energy, vibrancy and undeniable artistic skill.

The paintings are visceral and hypnotic, which exude elements and ideas from his Mongolian upbringing clashing with contemporary urban culture. The result is a unique new category that only Heesco can own. These works are a must see in person.

Heesco is an internationally recognised graffiti and street artist based in Melbourne – for catalogue enquiries contact heesco@heesco.com”

Check out a few of the images of works from the show, and see the mad new direction that Heescos work has taken recently.
