Well last night was the launch of Boom Gallery in Newtown. The night was a huge success with over four hundred punters through the door. There was a bunch of cool art on offer, and lots of people I hadn’t seen in the longest time…which was really cool. And I managed to sell three paintings for the night. So a big success from my perspective, and a great new adition to the arts scene in Gtown.

If your in the area, drop in wed – fri or sat 10 – 4pm to have a look at the art, and enjoy a high end coffee from the gallery’s own coffee bar. (How cool is that!)  Boom Gallery – 11Rutland St, Newtown, Geelong.

As part of the Illumination project by Courthouse Arts in Geelong, one of my animations of mash up imagary, ‘Mind Control’ was projected large scale (Three Stories high!) onto Custom House in Geelong. It was a short Mash Up film culminating in the following images…

Always good to have a bit of large scale propaganda projected onto a public building!

Here is my new print, “Ceci n’est pas un Banksy”.  Sold a few of these over at the Sweet Streets festival. It’s just a bit of a piss take on how anything using a stencil is called a Banksy. What about Blek? …among others!

Anyway, this was originally made just as a tongue in cheek image for a friend…originally titled, “The treachery of copyright images”. Looks sweet in the flesh…a solid and lush deep flat blue to it.

Email me if you want one…going for about $70 AUD (plus postage).

Each of the four paintings are 60 x60 cms. (Total: 120 x 120 cms)
