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.”

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.

Converse Sneaker Clash- Live Painting by Ink&Clog

Review & Snapshots – Converse Sneaker Clash – Ft Ink & Clog- Singapore

InkTen & ClogTwo, two of Singapore’s most prominent street artists, were painting live last night at the Art Bar – Butter Factory for the Converse Sneaker Clash event. The purpose of this event was to showcase how colours are a priority and importance to Converse’s existence, with an interactive element.

Guests were greeted by a row of canvases on the entrance wall which they were allowed to sign, draw and express their-selves. Water guns filled with paint were used by guests to colour a row of sneakers. This was the main interactive element of the entire event. Ink & Clog had on display two canvases of Ink’s Hollow Ghost and Clog’s Skull characters.

The live painting was done on everyday objects such as a printer, chair, traffic pylon, television and lastly a door which was one of the main highlights of the event.

Video – Steen Jones & Alex Lehours – Authority Clothing

You would have seen Dave’s photos from this wall a few weeks back. Now here’s the video from Authority Clothing. Authority are doing great things at the moment, including getting Snoop to wear their T-shirt recently with some cheeky antics. Their latest project is called “From Walls to Tee’s” taking work from murals and featuring them on limited edition tshirts. Rad idea. The first being Steen and Alex. Check out the video below.

From Authority Clothing
“From Wall’s to Tee’s

Authority Clothing is a Melbourne based label, working with street artists to create independent urban apparel. Authority Clothing commissions artists to create fresh murals around Melbourne before releasing limited edition t-shirts based around the artwork’s.

Authority’s journey began last year when working Steen Jones on his Sailor Jerry Tribute mural which can be found on Johnston Street in Fitzroy, Melbourne. Six months on and they decided to go bigger and badder.

Authority Clothing organised a collaboration between artist’s Alex Lehours and Steen Jones on Beith Street in Brunswick. Two amazing artists, videographers and photographers came together and worked for three days on this wall, named ‘The Beith Street Project.’

Steen’s precise control of the can married with the fine brush work of Alex brings this tattoo flash sheet inspired work together like a charm.

Look out, Authority Clothing will be releasing a limited edition t-shirt range based around this collaboration early February, available at www.authorityclothing.com.au. You can also head down to the Killer Merch head quarters at 7 Beith Street, Brunswick to check out this wall in the flesh.

Mapping Melbourne brings a collaboration of local fashion label Fame Agenda and Indonesian street artist Darbotz in Fame Agenda X Darbotz. A fashion show featuring models , music and street art, which will burst out of a giant pink box on the steps of the State Library of Victoria for one day only.

Indonesian street artist Darbotz is back after his last visit and show in April this year in Melbourne. He was also one of the many artists featured in Bomb It 2. Using the theory of semiotics, Darbotz wanted people to recognise his artwork without having to sign it. His unique character the “Cumi” squid monitors is only painted in black and white.

The “Cumi” has been adapted by Monica Lim, Fame Agenda’s designer into a dress that will featured in the show. It will also feature models wearing photographic prints of Dabotz’s artwork which he left in the walls of Melbourne during his last visit. During the show, Darbotz will be painting the giant pink box live, the panels of which will be sold and proceeds will go to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
