Recently, we went down to May Lane in St Peters to catch up with Wendy from the Mays’s Lane Street Art Project. After chatting about their upcoming projects, we ventured outside to take a walk around the graff covered lane ways. Here’s what we saw (click below for more pics).
Last night was the opening of 21 year old Rob Tucker’s show at Sydney’s famous Monster Children gallery. The work was so good it made me want to eat vegemite whilst wearing marc jacobs heels. It’s on until the 10th of October so go check out the show to understand what i’m rambling about.
From the MC website: 21 year old Rob Tuckers’ rise in New Zealand’s art world has been organic but rapid, a transition from high school to full time painting that has not been prescribed by formal training.
It all started casually, having the odd show down at the local gallery, and this is where he met people who helped him initially start moving forward. It was a new and exciting way to express himself, but at the time he never saw it as a career path -even though it was always a dream. Rob says of his rise: “I have never had any training for my art. People see this as a non-conformist approach but to me it is more of a natural progression of my ideas about art. This has helped me forge my own opinions of what I want to achieve rather than being told by someone what is good and what isn’t.”
Beastman is a Sydney local that is turning heads with his distinct style and dedicated attitude towards his craft and passion. Apart from his backside tail slides, he’s pretty happy with life and art right now so we asked him a few questions to see what’s going on inside his beast-head.
On Friday night we walked over to China Heights on Crown St to take a look at Mark Alsweiler’s second Sydney show called “Old Finds New Minds”. Awesome show, nice guy and a nice body of work I’d have on my walls any day. Click below for more photos.
Another late one, but a show we’d like to share because we took a road trip down to Melbourne especially for this show and it looked amazing. Free Radicals was David Bowers, Doug Bartlett, Ben Frost, Nick Morris, Numskull, Nolwen Stephan and Trent Whitehead. It took place at Melbourne’s Greenwood Gallery in South Melbourne.
This is WELL overdue, but I thought the best way to start TOH is to open with 12×12 3. The 3rd in a series of group show curated by WATIM, this show featured Adrian Knot, Ainslie Fletcher, Bridge, Justin Williams, Kareena Zerefos, Kid Zoom, Luke Taaffe, Max Berry, Meggs, Phibs, Simon Degroot and Two One. The show took place at Ambush Gallery, which by the way, is an awesome gallery with a McDonalds right next door for mid show eats.
