Exhibition – Knock – Chimera X – Melbourne

We spotted this rad show coming up this weekend, from the skillful hand of Knock, who has been visiting Melbourne over this gorgeous summer. Looks like a damn fine place to be this Friday night in Fitz!

The Library Gallery presents ‘Chimera X’ a recent body of works from international visual artist KNOCK.

The work delves into the world of creatures past and present spliced into many genus from the perspective of the artists mind.”

I’ve seen a lot of Knocks work around over the past few years, and it really talks to me – I guess because I’m a mass lover of all things alien, surreal and weird – and I love myself some good linework as well, and this mans work has all that in spades, and then some.

Head down this weekend to The Library Gallery to check it all out!

Snapshots – Lumen – By Rone – 109 Collins Street

A lot of the time I rarely get to enjoy the art work I’m photographing, until I am looking at in front of my computer, this is one time I went back not once but maybe 6 times.

I had my street art tour group with me most of the time, all of whom were blown away when they walked through the doors, even some were lucky enough to purchase prints me included.

So if you couldn’t make it here are some pics enjoy.

Now & Then.

Snapshots – Now & Then – Ha Ha, Dlux & Sync.

Last Friday night we had the honour of attending one of the coolest shows we’ve been to in some time – the joint group exhibition by none other than Ha Ha, Sync and Dlux (aka James Dodd, who we interviewed last week).

There was something really intriguing about this exhibition – walking in, you got the sense of stepping back in time, but knowing that you were firmly rooted in the present. Old stencils (the actual acetate themselves), covered in layers of paint adorned the walls – many, very familiar icons that had been seen on the street of Melbourne many times.

New works, vibrant and clean sat alongside them. Where it all began, and where it all ended, well, I don’t really know – it was hard to see any real transition point between the time frames, which is how it was intended – it was one, beautiful  though – Now & Then was, indeed, an uplifting experience. Throughout the room you could sense the joy oozing off the walls, from a group of artists who have continued, unrelenting, to create and pursue their passions for the past decade.

Perhaps the thing that it gave to me most, was hope for the next decade, and for those artists who have just started out, those who are still working – if this show was anything to go by, the progress of time, the unrelenting politics and bullshit of scene, and the progression of work from walls outside to walls inside does nothing to diminish, and everything to enhance, the veracity of art produced by those who have a background in street based art.

Thanks to David Russell, we have a whole bunch of photos from the show below – enjoy!
