FORM Gallery – PUBLIC – Perth – Video and PUBLICation

It’s been a few months since Fletch, Dean and I got back from Perth for PUBLIC. What an awesome weekend it was. The guys at FORM have just shared this great video by Chad Peacock with a great wrap up of the event. It’s a great reminder of the weekend.

FORM has also put together this little book called PUBLICation – available for purchase at the Gallery and also viewable free online, see below.

The work didn’t stop after that weekend, it’s still going! Big ups to the FORM crew – keep the goodness coming! Kyle Hughes-Odgers (aka Creepy) recently finished painting at the Perth airport and Vans the Omega and Beastman just finished this new piece together.

Even more exciting is the arrival of SANER !!! He couldn’t make the original dates due to some logistical issues so he’s coming this month to make up for it :) I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop with photos and progress when he gets here. He’ll paint walls in Perth as well as up in the Pilbara. Spewing we missed him while we were there, ah well.

Snapshots – Girls of the Underworld – Kult Gallery – Singapore

Last Friday, we attended the Kult gallery exhibition, Girls of the underworld. The show showcased works of 34 female artists of various backgrounds. It featured works such as paintings, sculptures to installations, they had it all. Although the gallery is a fair bit of a walk from the main road it was worth it.

Below are some of the photographs of the exhibition.

Snapshots & Video – Adnate – Beyond The Lands

What can we say about Adnates show at Metro Gallery thats on right now? Beautiful. One of the best shows from a Melbourne street artist we’ve seen. Respectful. All the things that others have said many times over the past two weeks … but, really, what we feel about this show is that we’re pretty proud, not only of Adnate himself and the gorgeous work he did for it, but proud that Melbournes general public has seen fit to fall in love with his work, and truly validate all the countless hours that he has spent striving over the years to make his way as an artist. If a sold show at Metro Gallery doesn’t show that a graff artist, with enough hard work and unfaltering determination, can really live the dream and do what he loves doing, then we don’t know what does.

The opening for Beyond The Lands was amazing – from the speeches, to the traditional dancers, to the sheer amount of people attending, to the massive, but humble, smile we saw on Adnates face. It’s still on, and you should go see it.

The following are a bunch of shots that Dave Russell got of the works himself, as well as the awesome video that Michael Danischewski did for the whole thing.We loved it, and can’t wait to see what Adnate does next.

Snapshots – Jonathan Guthmann – The Existential Vacuum & Live Painting – Backwoods Gallery

Dave and I went down to check out Jonathan Guthmann’s debut show “The Existential Vacuum” at Backwoods Gallery 2 Fridays ago, and damn we’re we impressed!!!

This was definitely one of the best shows I have seen in a while, we’ll done Backwoods!

Dicks aside, what JG is most well known for, Jonathan’s pieces were amazing. An incredible eye for detail made his images of theology, mythology and ancient languages really shine. Oh yeah and the dick pics were also rad, as expected. His mural out the front (1st time on the cans) was pretty damn impressive.
We were also lucky enough to get down to see Jonathan painting live on Saturday. Watching the man work gave me even more of an appreciation for his work. Airbrush, ink and aerosol were all used to create his WILLY character, which looked amazing.
Thanks as usual to David Russell for the amazing photos. Enjoy.

Snapshots – A Study Of Eyes @ Backwoods Gallery – Melbourne

David Russell got down to the opening of Backwoods Galleries latest group show, “A Study Of Eyes” – the second in a series of shows (after the wonderful A Study Of Hands) featuring local and international artists producing work around various parts of the human body.

““A Study Of” is a decade-long project by curator Alexander Mitchell aiming to create an archive of anatomical and artistic studies by the world’s leading contemporary artists. The project was launched last year with “A Study Of Hands.”

This year, Backwoods Gallery will present the second installment,“A Study Of Eyes”, an exhibition consisting of 45 pieces of original artwork based on the eye by some of the world’s leading artists.”

I actually never realised it was a decade long project – talk about epic. Check out all the photos from the most recent iteration below, courtesy of David Russell …

Snapshots – Alexandra Lederman – LandEscapes @ House of Bricks

Last weekend ex-Sydney and newly minted Melbourne artist Alexandra Lederman opened up her first solo show here in Collingwood, with LandEscapes. With playful abstractions juxtaposed with imaginative landscapes, this was a great showing by an emerging artist whose work we are particularly keen to follow!

Big thanks to David Russell for all the shots, and congrats to Alexandra on her first Melbourne show!
