Opening: ‘Satellite’ by Kyle Hughes-Odgers at Turner Galleries – Perth

Turner Galleries:
“In the five years since we first worked with 
Kyle Hughes-Odgers, his career has taken a meteoric rise. From fairly humble beginnings as a street artist, this career has evolved rapidly to include major public art commissions, three children’s books, gallery exhibitions in Australia and overseas, and of course the (now international) street art has continued unabated. The spindly limbed characters that populate his artworks have certainly struck a chord with his viewers. They have a universal narrative; they struggle with their lives, carry their burdens, face difficult choices and are not afraid to dream.
Hughes-Odgers’ most important commissions include an eighty meter building exterior (including LED lighting design) at the new Perth international airport. Other recent career highlights include winning the Crystal Kite Award (Australia/New Zealand) with Meg McKinlay for their children’s book Ten tiny things, a forty meter mural for Murdoch University, a four storey building exterior in Washington DC, an interior mural for Jamie Oliver’s Perth restaurant, a four storey mural overlooking the Mitchell Freeway in Perth, solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, Amsterdam and Berlin, plus his third children’s book is due to be published in November 2015.”

Photos: Wonderwalls Port Adelaide 2015

Firstly, we’d like to thank Joel Moore for directing the biggest Wonderwalls Festival to date, and of course the City of Port Adelaide & Renewal SA for inviting us to bring Wonderwalls to their city, Ironlak, Verb Syndicate and all of our other sponsors, supporters and volunteers. We’d like to also thank the people of Port Adelaide for allowing us into their city to paint both small and (VERY) large murals, which will hopefully stay forever.

Wonderwalls Port Adelaide saw artists from all parts of the world, all over Australia and locally from around the Adelaide region, converge on the Port to decorate and reinvigorate it’s walls. It was an amazing week which hosted an exhibition, an artist panel discussion and of course a series of murals throughout Port Adelaide. Two of which are amongst the biggest murals in the whole country (painted by Etam Cru and Askew One/Elliot Francis Stewart).

Stay tuned for the video recap, however in the meantime click below for the full set of photos. You can also find a great photo recap by photographer Luke Shirlaw, here.

Video: Project 5 recap featuring Askew, Kyle Hughes-Odgers, 23rd Key and Alex LeHours

The team at Ambush Gallery recently brought together a great mix of artists for another round of Project 5. A yearly art project, which features Australian and International artist painting both live and in their studios, for an outdoor exhibit which eventually produces artwork to go to auction in aid of charity. A great concept, and a great way to have artists from outside of Sydney come to town and show new work.

Check out the video recap featuring Askew One, Kyle Hughes-Odgers, 23rd Key and Alex LeHours.
