Overseas Action: Meggs for the Richmond Mural Project

Since moving to America, Meggs has solidly been making his mark both in his gallery shows and also outside with his large scale murals. Recently he was invited back to the Richmond Mural Project for 2014 which also included artists like Ron English, Interesni Kazki and more. True to form, Meggs created two pieces in his trademark expressionist style.

Opening: Shida ‘Inner Myths’ at The Tate Gallery – Sydney

We are proud to be presenting the Sydney leg of Shida‘s show ‘Inner Myths’.

‘Inner Myths’ is Melbourne based artist Shida’s boldest and biggest collection of work to date. Touring from Melbourne to Sydney, then ending up in Brisbane. Each show will comprise of a solid body of work, that will see a unique collection in each city. Read more about the show below.

“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 Shida is an asset to Australian contemporary art, who is constantly challenging himself against the sources of his inspiration.”

Photos: Will Coles and ELK at Art Equity – Sydney

We don’t know much about Art Equity apart from that they seem to service the higher end of the art market. The collectors and investors. So it’s amazing to see local Sydney and Melbourne street artists having successful solo shows with them. The fact that an Australian art investment firm like this backs home grown talent is somehow surprising but also quite a welcome move, as normally these investors would be pushed to buy art by street artists from other parts of the world.

Street artists ELK aka Luke Cornish and Will Coles came together at Art Equity for a duo show which had both new and old work from the Sydney and Melbourne based artists.

We are definitely interested to see what’s next at this gallery and will be keeping our eye on their shows for sure. In the meantime, click below to see the full set of photos.
