Photos: Beastman ‘Future Origins’ at Backwoods Gallery

Last month The Hours own Beastman presented his latest solo exhibition ‘Future Origins’ at Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne. The successful exhibition was well received by the Melbourne locals and featured a new series of intricate acrylic paintings on wood, an impressive new large scale vector print, three dimensional wall and sculptural installations, and a blacked out front room with two digitally animated works looping on separate screens. Those who attended the busy opening were also treated to a 3 hour live electronic soundtrack provided by Otis Chamberlain from up in the loft which perfectly complimented the overall vibe of the exhibition and artwork. Check out these pics of the exhibition and opening night thanks to the artist and Backwoods Gallery.

Bright Night Sky by MISO

As a tattooist and street artist, working under the name MISO, Stanislava Pinchuk’s artwork spans the globe, on people and in cities everywhere.

After so many years traveling, Stanislava has resettled in her Melbourne studio and in a process of dreaming and mapping, Stanislava has begun retracing her life through delicate pinprick maps on white paper detailing the cities she has called home.

Hidden within each map are her memories, routines and experiences, as well as pathways leading to her friends houses across the world.

Recently The National Gallery of Australia acquired two of her pinprick works, making Stanislava one of the youngest artists in the Australian national collection.

Bright Night Sky will be an exhibition of fourteen pinprick maps on paper and large installations by Stanislava on display at Backwoods Gallery, Melbourne.

Backwoods presents “Seven Samurai” by Two One

Two One would have to be one of our favourite Australian artists (we’ve said it many times before). His unique use of technique, colour and composition is second to none.

We are excited to see his newest body of work titled “Seven Samurai” at Backwoods Gallery, opening on the 14th September. If you’re in Melbourne, don’t miss this.
