After their recent travels around the world, they landed in Yok’s home town of Perth to open ‘Nasty Goreng’. A duo solo show with some extra pieces from various friends including Fecks, Ayres, Hosae and Amok Island. The exhibition consisted of a heap of new paintings, batik works, a surf shack and large scale sculptures which were made on their travels.

Photos: Daek William x Belasyse

Daek William recently completed a huge acrylic on board artwork for bar Belasyse Perth. ‘Her secret world of oddities’ took 12 days to create, entirely with brush. Showcasing Daek’s ability to switch between large scale aerosol works on the street to intricate detailed brush work. This impressive mix of tiny detail across such a large scale is a must see.

Kyle Hughes-Odgers recently collaborated with DMG architects on a massive public art project and installation at 1006 Hay Street Perth, Australia.
Kyle was commissioned to create the artwork for a large scale stainless steel perforated screen for a newly complete 12 story building, designed and built by DMG architects. The artwork wraps the entire base of the building and into the nearby laneway. 40m in total width and 6m at the highest point – this huge project is the artist’s largest public artwork to date.

Last Month in Perth saw the opening of Daek William’s major solo outing “Welcome To The World Of…” at the beautiful Linton & Kay space on St George’s Terrace. Returning to his home town after a long stint in New York, Daek showed off a huge selection of both large and tiny-scale works. A lot of outside the box thinking from this guy as usual – with scratch and sniff paintings, hypercolours, and works with with robotic moving parts adding a pretty amazing interactive element to the show. Check out some photos from the opening below:
