Selfest Recap

So, we’ve been a bit slack on updates lately so we are trying to get out all the content we have that hasn’t yet surfaced. One of the main events we were excited about was Selfest. A four day art event curated by Marty Routledge and Joseph Allen Shea, which saw the likes of international artists; Horfe, Roid, Jeff Canham, Dmote and Ben Barretto. There we so may events going on, we only managed to photograph the mural and 2nd exhibition. Check out some of the photos below. (Notice the sneaky appearance of Sofles at the mural…)

Backyard Play is a celebration of the notion of home, nostalgia and diversity. Every upbringing in this country is set against a different backdrop, and the concept of “play” is defined in a myriad of ways. Where the backyard of one persons childhood was a grassy garden in suburbia, yours may have featured the bush, the desert, the sea, the farm or the CBD. Our project is designed to unite the Australian community through art and shared experience, and there is no more perfect concept to launch this regular event than this.

The first exhibition has been preceded by a collaborative day of creation, where artists created works inspired by the theme of Backyard Play with media including aerosol, pen and paint on canvas. The day was documented on camera and film, and this footage has been edited into a number of trailers and a documentary that will be screened as part of the exhibition.
We invite you to be part of our debut show.

Where & When – Plump Gallery, 240 Enmore Rd, Enmore
Opens Thursday 8th of December 2011
Exhibition continues until Wednesday 14th of December 2011.

Anthony Lister – Rainbow City Gaze

It’s a known fact that Lister is always busy. I’m sure as we write this post he is painting somewhere. Whilst in town for Outpost, he teamed up with aMBUSH for another project at The Galeries (where Transient was) he’s calling ‘Rainbow City Gaze’. A 3D installation painting, that is more like his street work. Check out a video and some photos below.

aMBUSH Gallery and L4NE FOUR at The Galeries present Rainbow City Gaze by Anthony Lister – an ambitious large scale 3 dimensional public art installation on exhibition from 24 November in the heart of Sydney’s CBD.

Anthony Lister explains that the installation “is about raining colour down on the public. Nothing makes me sadder than grey city days. I feel it’s important for colour to be all around. I like to think of myself as a leprechaun giving the rainbow dream to the people”.

This is the second public art exhibition at L4NE FOUR – Sydney’s brand new lane way art project curated by aMBUSH Gallery.

On exhibition for eight weeks from Thursday 24 November, 2011.

Sneak Peek: Numskull

Also this Thursday night in Sydney, Numskull is opening his show “Mixed Messages” at Kind Of Gallery, Surry Hills. This new body of work has taken Numskull into a new direction, with more detail, more focus on typography and a step forward in technique as he slowly weens out the use of some of his old methods. Every single piece of art in this show is hand-made by the artist. From the fonts, the frames, the sculptures and more… Check out some photos from a recent trip to his Annandale studio and also a newly released video called “Dance like a video, sting like a Gif”.
