DOES and Endless Perspectives just keeps on goin on! This master of cans has just released a great video from the opening of his Melbourne installation, and watching it is worth every second!
Fuck I wish I had of been there!
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.
2 of Melbourne’s finest writers are having a show over in Heidelberg Germany, opening this Friday the 19th. Wish I could be there.
Well it has been another busy month, capturing the ever changing streets of Melbourne’s diverse street art scene.
Here is a selection of some of my favourite images from the last 30 days enjoy . Peace
We love Artillery Magazine, and we love Selina Miles work – she’s one of our favourite home grown urban videographers right now.
Selina has captured some really cool moments in this vid – with TMD doing throwies, quick panels and assorted burns. Mad cunts getting up grand – check it out!
Polands been pretty rad so far (oh yeah, I’m in Polamd – more on that in a Sojourn post soon!), and tonight was pretty cool too. The guys at V9 studios in Warsaw put me onto a great little show here in Krakow, so I stopped by to check out a bunch of art from Jurne, Great and Mags put on at Garaz.
Garaz is a pretty cool little spot just outside of Krakows Old Town, a little innocuous space full of art amongst a bunch of car garages – I thought it was a brilliant idea, actually.
It was a cool show, alas I couldn’t stay too long as I’m fucking off to Budapest first thing in the morning – but I’m glad I managed to make it and to meet the artists, I’ve been a fan of all of their work so it was nice to get a chance to see some of it on some walls!
Heres a few more shots of the show before heading off to Budapest tomorrow morning, traveling fkn rules – enjoy the pics!
Every time we see a video from
Sofles we whoop in joy haha, and this time around he’s battling Swet at the Roskilde festival!
Great video viewing from Anders Skovshoved and
Jesper Andreassen for your Saturday morning, enjoy!
Thanks Dean for covering this one for us. I loved this show last Friday night. DEM and PLEA’s styles and insects were the perfects match. The colours, lines and techniques used were all amazing.
Check the awesome installation too.
