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.

Photos: Beastman & Phibs “In Our Nature” – Sydney

Beastman & Phibs are both artists that are synonymous with each other. Both share the same birthday, both have lived together, both have a similar approach and style to their work, both have exhibited together and both have painted numerous walls together over the years.

Recently the duo teamed up again for an exhibition titled “In our nature” at Ambush Gallery in Sydney. The show was comprised of a series of the same size paintings, a large scale mural installation (coupled with sound designed by Daniel O’Toole aka Ears) and a spontaneous live painting of two cars outside the gallery during the weekend. The artwork on show was a typical glimpse into their overall bodies of work, however this time instead of completely filling the spacious gallery, only small 7 paintings were displayed by each artist.

If you missed out, you might be lucky to see the mural at the next Ambush Gallery show, which has become a permanent fixture. Click below for a full set of photos. More on Beastman here. More on Phibs here.

Meet me in the Middle – New work by Cat Rabbit, Noir & Seven Seas at the Tate

Some of Melbournes’ best loved creatives brought their wares to Sydney this week for a group show of new and collaborative pieces at the Tate. Cat Rabbit, Noir and Seven Seas made up the trifecta with a abundant array of paintings, prints, sculptures, wood carvings, plush toys, needlework and more. This is one of those shows that is insanely easy to photograph, but really hard to cull, hence the 40 images after the jump! The level of detailing and finishing on each piece is extraordinary, you can truly gaze for hours at the collection of works and find something new, some little hidden face or pattern or detail you didn’t see before. I can not speak highly enough of these three and their work, if you are in Sydney you really do have to come down and see it for yourself! The show runs till Sunday, gallery is open 12-6pm.
