Now an RVCA special edition artist, he was recommended by friends Barry McGee and Os Gemeos. Like many of his peers refining their skills at street level, Remy has already started making a successful entry into the gallery and museum world.

His Melbourne solo exhibition,  Subconscious Rumours opens this Thursday, October 23 from 5-8pm at the RVCA Corner Gallery, 82 Stanley St, Collingwood. Exhibition will continue until Mid November.

Alongside a host of new paintings, there are a handful of editioned prints available on the night. Don’t sleep on getting there early.
