Mark Whalen would have to be one of Australia’s best exports in the arts community. His career has gone from strength to strength and is an idol of many Australian artists. This April, Mark is again bringing home a body of work to create his show titled “Maze Walkers” at Chalk Horse Gallery, curated by Black Art Projects.
Opening 4 April, 6-8pm
8 Lacey Street
Surry Hills NSW
2 April – 20 April, 2013
12-6 Wed – Sat
From ex Sydney local Mark Whalen comes this animated video for Autolux, in collaboration with Thomas McMahan. This is truly amazing.
We are now half way through December, so it’s about the time when shopping centres start packing full with families, kids, grandma’s, grandpa’s and last minute shoppers. We prefer to stay out of harms way and shop online. Below is a list of goodies to fill either your or someone else’s stocking.
1. We currently have a rare zine/screenprinted bag package from Sydney’s infmaous SLUG.
At only $15 it’s a steal. Click here.
2. Meggs has just released a Boxed Edition T-Shirt which includes a hand screenprinted box, with signed 3 colour A4 screenprint & Meggs stickers. These look really top quality. Get one while you can. Click here.
3. Another Everfresh member, REKA has a few screenprints for sale at the moment. All are equally as good, this one jumped out at us though. Click here.
4. Numskull has released a brand new edition of one colour stencil prints with Stupid Krap. The edition is only a small 25, so get in quick. Click here.
5. After seeing her immense floating girl wall at Outpost, we’re sure everyone will be jumping on these limited prints by Vexta. Click here.
6. Off the back of his Outpost murals and current exhibition ‘Cosmic Nature’, Beastman has also released a limited edition zine documenting ALL of his outdoor walls. Click here.
7. Dangerfork is one of the newest print stores to appear on the scene, with their release by PRIZM catching our eye. Prizm hardly ever releases new artwork so this is a rare opportunity. Click here.
8. Finally, Gallery AS (as we have mentioned) have released a print with Mark Whalen (Kill Pixie). We have picked one of these up for ourselves and we reccomend you do the same. The artwork is classic and the print quality is second to none. Click here.
Gallery AS never ceases to amaze. And this print for Mark Whalen is no different. Previously known as Kill Pixie, Mark Whalen has definitely hit a stride with his work and has made a name for himself throughout the world, having solo shows in Los Angeles, London, Berlin and Australia. We’d suggest getting in quick as an edition of 50 will go before you’ve had time to size up the spot on your wall.
This 3-colour offset lithograph editioned art print explores the relationships between nature and humans, or perhaps more correctly, human-like beings. This new edition produced by Gallery A.S. appears as otherworldly botanical print and reflects his current body of work.

We love our aussie exports. And at the top of the pile is definitely Mark Whalen. He is one of the most creative, nicest and hard working artists we have had the pleasure of meeting.
If you were at his Melbourne show “White Out” you would’ve seen this animation on the floor of the gallery. He’s finally let it out into the internet for everyone’s viewing pleasure. Enjoy…
