Recently(Last Friday), Boom Gallery opened their latest show ‘Big Boom‘. It coincided with the galleries expansion which sees the gallery nearly double in size…which is massive thing for Geelong, being that the gallery was already fairly large! The Big Boom exhibition was a group show with about twenty artists work on show including; Jeff Raglus, Tibor Novak, Anita Iacovella and many more. So although eclectic, the show is bound to have something that will cater to everyones tastes.

It runs till the 14th Sept, so pop in and have a look if you want to see some fresh art.

Boom Gallery Hours are 9 – 4pm Wed – Sat – 11 Rutland Street Geelong

Below is one of the works that I had in the exhibition. I decided to use the fact that I only had to put in a few works to be a little experimental and put in some straight stencil works that were stripped right back to give a design edge to them. A bit different and less busy than my usual work.

In other news…

I have been back painting more little bits and pieces at the Eureka, I have been doing a bit of graphic design for ‘Future Digitals’ a new media concept/group starting in the northern suburbs/Cloverdale. As well as all this, I am also currently working on a large scale paste-up collaboration with Darren Wescomb as a feature for the upcoming Geelong Fringe Festival (Pictures coming soon!).

Further info on the Geelong Fringe visit www.courthousearts.org.au .  It has been a while since the fringe festival has been in Geelong so be sure to get along and support it.

It seems like it was just yesterday that I put up all the work for my solo exhibition down at Boom Gallery…but as they say in the classics, all good things must come to an end! So if you haven’t seen the show yet you have till Saturday arvo to see it.

Anyway, moving forward I have a couple of new(probably still wet) artworks in the upcoming Boom Chrissy show. So if your around drop in for the opening and have a few quiet ones, enjoy the artwork on show by a wide range of artists from the greater Geelong region and celebrate christmas with the gallery.

enjoy!

Recently I had the privilege of working with a group of boys from Afghanistan on a Stencil/Paste Up workshop. After getting past the initial stage of figuring out the level of language skills, which to my surprise was very high considering the boys had only been in the country for about six months, we spent two days focusing on urban art. Day one we created a series of tags, as names were a common denominator between myself and the participants. Then we created a series of poster designs using both English and Darhi/Pashto and undertook a paste up session on the community centre where we were working. On the second day we worked our way through creating stencils which we then applied to T-Shirts. I think this was the session that gained the most positive response…then again who doesn’t like to get their hands on spray cans?

The Cloverdale Community Centre went to the effort of ensuring some Middle Eastern food was available for the lunches, which was delicious. And in the ten or more years of undertaking public workshops this was the most polite group that I have ever worked with…

So a big thanks to all those who took part!
