Ah, time flies when your busy. So what has been happening in the second half of 2015 i hear you ask…

Well I was flat chat working on works to be presented up in Mildura as part of the emerging artist exhibition for the first Australian Print Triennial. This was a massive undertaking as i produced six screen prints resulting in around a hundred artworks as each one had an individually painted background.

Below: My install at Deakin 25, Mildura for APTmildura.

On top of this i took part in Boom Gallery’s pop up gallery at Austin’s Winery as a part of toast to the coast. I also spent a fair bit of time putting together a mural for Deakin University where i was collaborating and mentoring young Jack Herd.

towards the end of the year also got my hands on a copy of Street Art Australia by Lou Chamberlin, which has a few street pieces of mine included. It is a really great book if your into Aussie street art. See it below:

and following this saw the year out with the Boom Christmas Show, a Little Window of Opportunity at Port Jackson Press as well as their christmas exhibition ‘Wrap Up’. So basically i have been pretty busy. I also finished up at my old job teaching high school and have taken up a new position teaching Cert/Diploma level courses…so that is exciting.

I hope everyone had a safe and happy christmas and new year, and stay tuned for an exciting 2016.

Cheers,

I recently went and saw the amazing Herakut exhibition in Melbourne. Previously, I had only seen the work by the German duo online and was very excited to see their work in the flesh…and i wasn’t disappointed. The work was amazing with a blend of beautiful people and animal mask/spirits. They beautifully blend the urban art aesthetic with hyper-realism. Definitely two artists(Hera & Akut) well worth looking up if you haven’t come across them.

Below are a few shots from the Metro exhibition…

And below is also one of their street works in Union Lane in the Melbourne CBD, that they left as a small gift for the Melbourne punters as a part of their ‘Giant Storybook Project’. It looks awesome in the flesh!

Here are a couple of images of my paste up for ‘Peel Your Eyes’. The main image is about 2 x 4 metres and wraps around the stairwell inside the Old Dimeys building in Geelong. The show opening gathered together a big crowd and the exhibition will stay open for another two weeks. So drop by to see the work of over 50 artists, including a lot of cool installation based artworks.
