Opening: PHIBS – FACE / FACE

Phibs Face to Face at The Culprit Club

The Culprit Club is proud to announce, FACE/FACE – An exhibition of new works by PHIBS.

Largely inspired by nature, PHIBS’ works have spawned a menagerie of signature characters and styles.

FACE/FACE will draw forward a number of his recurring characters, and express the evolving emotions and colour theories of his constant progression.

This intimate showcase will bring audiences face-to-face with the energy that fuels the creation of PHIBS’ larger gallery works and street murals.

As one of the most respected and renown names in Australian Graffiti and Street Art, we’re very excited to welcome the profoundly prolific PHIBS back to Brisbane’s streets.

Photos: ‘The Screaming Hand art show’ at Ambush Gallery – Sydney

The Screaming Hand art show recently opened at Ambush Gallery in Sydney, so we braved the rain and checked out this amazing (and large!) collection of both old and new original art, all based on the famous Jim Phillips icon, The Screaming Hand!

The show, curated by Eddie Zammit and Produced by Santa Cruz AUS, was really well presented and jam packed full of amazing work by both local and international artists. Too many to name… A great opportunity for the local artists to be given free reign over a classic image, plus an honour for most to have their work presented next to some of the world’s most renown (skate related) artists such as Mark Gonzales, Steve Olson, Mike Giant, Thomas Campbell, Andy Jenkins and many many more including original artwork by the creator himself, Jim Phillips.

With multiple rooms (our favourite was the video / process room), this show is definitely one not to miss, and make sure you don’t because it’s only open for a short amount of time!

Find out all the details here. (All photos below by Enzo Amato) Click below for the full set of photos…
