Exhibition – Sian Song & Erin Greer – Daylight/Dark Night – Melbourne

I’m a big fan of Erin Greers work, and though I am less than familiar with Sian Songs, the glimpses of it that I’ve seen have piqued my interest – and it looks like a great counterpoint to Erins work in this upcoming duo exhibition from the two at Off The Kerb gallery this Friday night.

Intrigued by the creatures that inhabit the daylight and dark night, Sian Song & Erin Greer combine forces to paint a window into the magical world of animals. Both artists employ a whimsical and playful style to bring these creatures’ narratives to life.”

Head down to Collingwood to see it all for yourselves, its shaping up to be a great night for art across Melbourne.

Through The Lens With David Russell – June 2014

Another month of mad walls, not a day goes by where I don’t find something new on the streets of Melbourne, be it street art or graff.

The stand out show this month for me was ‘Untold” by James Reka, I really liked the found objets covered in rust with their striking blue designs, while the framed works spoke for themselves.

I got down to see “Charlie Foxtrot” by E.L.K at Metro Gallery; I have always been a big fan of  this guys work, his composition and subject matter always intriguing me.

I also got the chance to Meet the aptly named Mike Giant, founder of “Rebel 8″, which saw Melbourne host a rad party decked out with designs by Mike Giant and a half pipe in one room.

My lens is fixed on artists such as Bailer of “ID”, this guys evolution is amazing to watch especially in the last few months absolutely killing it and then there is Dem 189 of “F1″, here is another guy who never sleeps and who’s style inspires all who set eyes upon his work.

One of Melbourne’s favourite adopted artists Jaws, “Da Mental Vapors”, has left some amazing pieces behind as he recently left Oz to return home to France peace bro safe travels.

I have to mention my good mate Shida, who has really stepped up and taken his work to the next level, the way his work punctures the landscape so vividly leaving you breathless.

Melbourne saw the return of Meggs, luckily he was able to leave us with a few pieces to enjoy and if you haven’t seen them yet I would advise you guys to get down and check out the Rose street car park in Fitzroy, organised by Dvate, It’s an amazing graff filled area full of Melburn Kings, past and present.

Finally the ever busy Mr Jacob Oberman, this was on of my favourite pics, till next month Peace out Punkz.

Exhibition – Shida – Inner Myths – Backwoods Gallery – Melbourne

One of our favourites, Shida, will be hitting Backwoods Gallery this weekend with his latest solo show, Inner Myths – read on for all the info you need!

“Backwoods Gallery is proud to present Inner Myths, a collection of new paintings and sculptural works by Shida.

The exhibition is a dynamic record of Shida’s development as an artist who envisions infinite worlds. Considering an array of approaches, through Inner Myths, he synthesises styles as diverse as Science Fiction Art, French Post-Impressionism and Russian Symbolist Art in his depiction of ethereal realities. Influenced by the work of Frank Frazetta, Paul Gauguin, Mikhail Vrubel and Nikolai Kalmakov, for Inner Myths, as Australia’s most prolific young street artist, Shida reinvokes two centuries of art history in his characteristic style.

Inner Myths presents a refined body of works, demonstrating that Shidais an asset to Australian contemporary art, who is constantly challenging himself against the sources of his inspiration.”

Also check out a bunch of preview images in the gallery below, as well as a really cool animated preview video ..

Exhibition – Aida Sabic – Anima – Melbourne

One of the artists that we have followed over the years,  the muchly talented Aida Sabic, is having her next solo show this weekend – and this time she delves into the mythologies of times gone by, with Anima.

“Greek mythology embodied the faults and strengths of human nature and it’s narratives veiled the fears, beliefs, and moral codes of their society. The stories were told by men, to motivate men. The female characters represented the feminine characteristics in themselves… to be resisted, subdued or overcome at any cost.

Ancient society had specific gender roles and typically the stories focus positively on male heroes achieving their heroic goals. Females were portrayed as weak or were punished harshly for showing dominant traits. Some became serial victims, deserving sympathy for a tragic life, but receiving none.

Although female heroines did exist, they were different to that of the male; women used intelligence to assist the men to achieve their goals, sacrificed themselves for loved ones or to preserve honour, and used their skills to exact revenge.

This work is based around the female characters in these myths and their relevancy, despite the role of women in ancient society being considered insignificant compared to that of men.”

We love anything mythological, and we love anything that comes from Aidas hand – beautiful work, and we cant wait until we get a chance to see it at Off The Kurb this Friday night – so head down and see it all for yourselves!!
