Opening: ‘Until Next Time…” final show at The Tate Gallery – Sydney

We were deeply saddened by the news of The Tate Gallery’s closing…

It’s been a gallery close to our hearts, and a space that in it’s time, has hosted an incredible mix of both world renown artists, and young emerging artists. All without rent or commission. Something which is so unique in the art world.

We’re excited to be helping The Tate Gallery team with one last show. So we’ve gathered as many available artists on short notice as possible to curate one last group show.

‘Until Next Time…’ group show
Where: The Tate Gallery, Glebe
Opening Hours: Wednesday 4th March, 6pm onwards

Until Next Time

Studio Visit: Max Berry ‘The Inwardness of Place’ at China Heights Gallery – Sydney

In the lead up to his much anticipated solo show at China Heights, Max Berry lets us inside his studio to see some of his process and progress for ‘The Inwardness of Place’.

It’s been a while between solo shows for Max. Alot has happened, having multiple works selected as a finalist in prestigious Australian art prizes such as The Wynne. The Sydney based artist has also released a book, and noticeably taken a very bold step forward into his distinct style of landscape painting. This show promises to be an amazing and large collection of work. Click below to see more.

Opening: The Hours presents ‘Stockroom’ – a group show

We are proud to announce ‘Stockroom’. A group show featuring some of Australia’s finest young artists

Over the years, The Hours (Beastman, Marty Routledge & Numskull) have produced a number of widely acclaimed art events & exhibitions around Australia and have worked with some of the most recognised young artists in a variety of different genres.

To celebrate these ties, The Hours presents ‘Stockroom’. A large group show featuring a host of artists that have either worked with us before, are working with us now, or are someone we’d like to work with in the future. A mix of connections between the artist and us, as purveyors of modern art, we believe this to be a perfect insight into “if we were to own a stockroom, this is who it would be filled with”.

Featuring:
MARK ALSWEILER, TOM FERSON, RONE, TWOONE, DANIEL O’TOOLE, SKOUNT, SCOTT MARSH, JUMBO, CHRIS LOUTFY, BAFCAT, JOEL BIRCH, BRIDGE STEHLI, BEASTMAN, EDWARD WOODLEY, SHIDA, MR PENFOLD, BENNETT, WILL COOKE, THE YOK, BEN FROST, RETRO, THOMAS JACKSON, KYLE MONTGOMERY, JAE COPP, FINTAN MAGEE, PHIBS, MADELEINE PFULL, NUMSKULL, AEDEN LEE, VANS THE OMEGA, ROACH, MAX BERRY, SHERYO, SID TAPIA, DAVID CRAGG, SOFLES & TAKIE

Video: Phibs and co for Ozanam – Sydney

If you live in or around Sydney’s Inner West, then you will have probably seen the new Ozanam building being painted by some of the country’s finest street AND graffiti artists, all of which were brought on board by one of the city’s legends, Phibs.

Artists involved were Phibs, Numskull, Linz, Beastman, Thomas Jackson, Birdhat, Ears, Max Berry, Mystery, Scram, Sytak, Brick, Amuse, Perso, Pudl, Skier, Peak, and Pesm.

Kingbrown Issue 9

What is a Kingbrown?

Kingbrown is West Australian slang for a longneck beer – a 40oz. Wrapped in a brown bag, just like a good 40 should.

Sitting somewhere between a book, a magazine and an art zine, Kingbrown is a super limited edition periodical. Each issue is handcrafted, delivered inside a silk screened brown bag which is designed and curated by some of the world’s leading innovators of photography, illustration and urban and skateboard art and design.

Inside Kingbrown you will find profiles and interviews that take you on a twisted journey inside the studios and minds of some of our very talented friends, with the aim of keeping you inspired and connected to the subcultures we love most. Printed with quality in mind, each page is a collectable item, individually sealed and packaged. Now in its 8th edition, Kingbrown has achieved worldwide success and is now launching for the first time in the US.

In this issue

Wrapped in a double sided brown bag with artwork by Ed Templeton & UNGA (Broken Fingaz), together with a cool outdoor vinyl sticker by Dabs Myla, and a Kingbrown x Ironlak stubby holder, featuring great interviews and studio insights with Nychos, Dabs Myla, Huskmitnavn, Ghostpatrol, Vans the Omega, Ed Templeton, Unga, Numskull, Roach, Ozzie Wright, and heaps more. Yep, told you it’s rad.

Opening: Max Berry “Which Way Home” at China Heights Gallery – Sydney

If you’re in Sydney, don’t miss out on this one. Max Berry has been working on a solid body of work that is guaranteed to impress, even if you’re new to his work. Stay tuned for some more photos of the work and his studio…

‘Which way home’ is an exhibition of new works that continue to explore a dreamlike and desolate landscape, whose inhabitants are often caught in moments of reflection and introverted retrospection. The inclusion of portraits, timber carving and ceramic sculpture demonstrate a willingness to explore new directions whilst strengthening his existing world.
