Backwoods is hosting a group show of epic proportions (no pun intended). ‘A study of eyes’ sees the gallery group together some of the world’s best to examine the eye. If the last group show ‘A study of Hands’ is anything to go by, we recommend getting down to see this show. With a lineup like this, it’s bound to be amazing.

Rone never stops traveling, and will never stop finding big walls to paint. The first stop on his end of year trip shows us that he can paint his large beautiful portraits, even when faced with a barrage of nasty windows.
As part of project ‘M’, curated by Strychinin Gallery, I have painted three images of Teresa Oman on the top 3 stories of the 5 story building. This was a huge challenge working around the windows and balconies. Over 5 days painting in the freezing cold high above Berlin working on the largest wall I have ever attempted.
Daek Williamrecently completed a huge acrylic on board artwork for bar Belasyse Perth. ‘Her secret world of oddities’ took 12 days to create, entirely with brush. Showcasing Daek’s ability to switch between large scale aerosol works on the street to intricate detailed brush work. This impressive mix of tiny detail across such a large scale is a must see.

Last week we hosted Askew‘s sold out debut Australian solo exhibition, at The Tate Sydney. Thanks to everyone that came down and met the man himself, who is currently still in town for Wonderwalls and Hit the Bricks festivals.
The show boasted ten beautifully painted portrait pieces and a limited edition zine of 50, which Askew drew in for everyone that purchased. This collection of work is a massive step forward for the artist, having previously stuck to a strict colour scheme, these paintings saw him let loose and get experimental with more effects and colours.
Cinzah Merkins is an artist hailing from New Zealand and is gearing up for his latest solo show titled ‘Cosmological Beginnings’, which opens this week. True to form, this show will showcase why Cinzah is respected for his beautifully crafted paintings and illustrations. If you’re in AK, get there!

Kyle Hughes-Odgers recently collaborated with DMG architects on a massive public art project and installation at 1006 Hay Street Perth, Australia.
Kyle was commissioned to create the artwork for a large scale stainless steel perforated screen for a newly complete 12 story building, designed and built by DMG architects. The artwork wraps the entire base of the building and into the nearby laneway. 40m in total width and 6m at the highest point – this huge project is the artist’s largest public artwork to date.
