Sneak Peek: Remio’s show opens in Melbourne

Remio is a bit of a mystery man and he prefers it that way. A prolific graffiti artist originally from Norway, he has found a way to make his mark in almost every country in the world.

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.

Opening: Keegan Gibbs ‘Zuma’ at the RVCA Gallery in Sydney

Tonight is the second opening at RVCA’s Downstairs Gallery in Paddington. Featuring a photo series by contributing US artist Keegan Gibbs, ‘Zuma’ was shot in one day on two rolls of 35mm colour negative film in Malibu, California.

Simplicity and nostalgia is the key to this series in whole, you’ll start noticing the relationship between the form (umbrella), the people, and the environment itself, the beach. Each frame has its own story. Continuing on the motif of shooting from behind his subjects that is prevalent in much of his other work, Keegan takes out the element of peoples faces, forcing the viewers attention first to the umbrella, then to the small details of the frame: a brand of sunscreen, the array of beach accessories, and the body language of the people, who were shot without knowledge of the photographers presence.

Opening tonight (January 30th) 6-9pm
RVCA Downstairs Gallery
82 Oxford st, Paddington
Exhibition remains open for a month
