“3.99Hz” By Angie Kate Taylor and Chrissie Hall is a surreal artistic experiment, with artworks delving into the unmapped subconscious of the mind. This show is an interactive and dream-like environment where the artworks, installations and soundscapes, encourage the viewer to question and explore the depths of their mind and imagination.
On Friday the 27th to Sunday the 29th of March, local and international street artists transformed 13 walls in the small town of Benalla into incredible works of art.
Artists including Rone, Adnate, Askew, Ears painted murals up to 3 stories high using scissor lifts, cherry pickers and scaffold to scale the buildings to create their modern masterpieces.
Wall to Wall is the first annual street art festival in Benalla, curated by Juddy Roller with the support of the Benalla Street Art Committee. The festival is a forward thinking approach to rejuvenating the regional town.
The design was created by Georgia by first illustrating 3 separate drawings, then physically tearing them up into strips and finally compiling the pieces together to create one final artwork. The design was then hand screen printed in 3 different colours, bringing a new aesthetic to Georgia’s work which is usually only done in black and white. This is also the first time Georgia has offered prints of her artwork for sale.
This hand screen printed Edition 009 is available in black, silver and bronze on bright white 340gsm paper, with each limited to only 10 prints. All prints are A2 size, hand signed and numbered by Georgia Hill and are now available to order online with FREE shipping Australia wide.
East Editions also collaborated with Georgia to launch their new pop up space at The 4217 in Surfers Paradise. The space currently features a mural installation by Georgia Hill to celebrate the release of this latest print edition. Get down to The 4217 if you are in the Gold Coast area to see it for yourself. You can find out more information about The 4217 on their website here – www.the4217.com
