Recap: Trent Whitehead – If Not Now, When?

Trent Whitehead’s first exhibition in over four years has just wrapped up at the new M.M.P.G. space in Sydney’s Surry Hills. The exhibition featured mind blowing painting and sculptural works, with a meticulous detail that he’s developed a reputation for. The exhibition heads south to Melbourne in a couple of months time but before then, you can view all of the remaining work HERE.

Opening: Trent Whitehead ‘If Not Now, When’ at M.M.P.G – Sydney

A much anticipated return of Trent Whitehead, one of our favourite artists.

After his last show in Sydney, which happened to be a sellout exhibition at Monster Children Gallery (RIP) in 2010, the then Sydney based artist moved out of town with his family to progress on other things and develop his ideas. After four years, he’s finally bringing a whole new body of work to the table, which from what we’ve seen, is ground breakingly amazing.

If you’re in Sydney this week, don’t miss out on the opening or the exhibition as a whole. The show also doubles a the first of more to come, at the new Mild Manners space in the very centre of Surry Hills, M.M.P.G.

For more details, check out this great interview over at Monster Children.

THE HOURS Launch Exhibition Sydney

When The Opening Hours first started, it was a means to fill the gap. A way to document a part of the art world that was going unnoticed.

After almost exactly 3 years of going strong, we are gearing up to get even stronger. We are proud to announce that we are officially launching THE HOURS.

“THE HOURS is a joint venture by three long time friends and artists, Brad Eastman (Beastman), Marty Routledge and Numskull. These three Sydney locals have each been instrumental in developing and enriching the Australian contemporary, street, graffiti and low brow art community over the last decade. They are now combining their many skills, fans, ideas, contacts and thriving ambition into THE HOURS, which promises to be an innovative creative force for years to come.”

To celebrate the launch, THE HOURS presents an exhibition of new paintings by a few our friends. Some of the most well known and respected artists in Australia. You won’t want to miss this show…
