Video: Elliott ‘Numskull’ Routledge for FODI at The Opera House – Sydney

Co-Founder of The Opening Hours, artist Elliott Routledge (or Numskull as he’s been known for a long time now) has recently collaborated with The Opera House for The Festival of Dangerous Ideas in Sydney.

“The Festival of Dangerous Ideas (FODI) is an annual event that brings leading thinkers and culture creators from around the world to the Sydney Opera House stages and online to discuss and debate the important ideas of our time.

Speakers at the festival are asked to present their ideas to create lively and thought-provoking discussions. Our aim is for audiences to leave each session having experienced the excitement of ideas brought to life, and with new food for thought.”

Check out the video below of the artist in his Sydney studio.

Opening: Artesian4 group show – North Sydney

Artesian4 is pleased to announce their first art show: ‘Urban Art – Parked!’. This show will feature street, pop and urban artists, open free to the public in an unorthodox ‘gallery’: Wilson Parking’s Ward Street car park in North Sydney. A diverse range of artists has been selected for this exhibition, including Johnny Romeo, Elliott ‘Numskull’ Routledge, Phibs, CAMO, Karen Farmer, Neil Tomkins, Peque VRS, ZOEZO, Tom Ferson and Jenna ‘YoNa’ Bloom.

This is the first in a series of shows, both standalone and in conjunction with art festival events, to be held in and around the Sydney CBD over the next year. Funds raised at the event (from donations and a portion of sales) will be donated to Father Chris Riley’s Youth Off The Streets.

Urban Art – Parked! will be open to the public from 12noon to 5pm on Saturday 6 June and from 10am to 2pm on Sunday 7 June.

A number of art works will be available for sale and silent auction, commission-free. If you are interested in attending or getting involved, please contact info@bigpic.com.au or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to stay in the loop.

Opening: ‘High Contrast’ solo exhibition by Elliott ‘Numskull Routledge at MMPG – Sydney

Opening this Friday night at MMPG in Sydney, this will be Numskull’s first Sydney exhibition in over three years.

Since his last Sydney exhibition in 2012 Elliott Routledge, or Numskull as he’s been known as for the past 15 years, has been working on large scale murals and outdoor installations for the likes of Art & About Festival, and most recently his month long residency at the prestigious Museums Quartier in Vienna, Austria.

Working across both bold, expressive canvas work and hand made sculptures, Elliott’s practice uses a variety of mark making techniques, strategic colour pairing and abstract composition. Hard edged blocks of pattern sit next to smears of multicoloured paint, and tangled scribbles of colour sit next to gradient filled shapes.

High Contrast is the artist’s reaction to human conditioning in regards to materialism & consumerism. These artworks are embedded with shapes and symbols that have been chosen to represent certain aspects of human culture and the potential future we live in. With subtle references to rave culture, the work uses imagery and lyrics from classic songs as a vehicle to highlight these conditions and ultimately encourage a new way of thinking.

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
