Backyard Play

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

A brand new collaboration between two Sydney-based groups with the shared concern of breathing more colour into our city.

KON, Sprinkles and Cam Wall, have been invited by PRIMO! Magazine and The Outsiders (Teem and Mr Sweet) to bring their perspectives and their talents into a single forum where they are encouraged to work, play and paint together. The primary aim of these small beginnings is to contribute to putting Sydney on par with artistically vibrant cities from across the globe, and to cultivate powerful and prolific relationships within the city’s artistic community.

Backyard Play is a celebration of the notion of home, nostalgia and diversity. Every upbringing in this country is set against a different backdrop, and the concept of “play” is defined in a myriad of ways. Where the backyard of one persons childhood was a grassy garden in suburbia, yours may have featured the bush, the desert, the sea, the farm or the CBD. Our project is designed to unite the Australian community through art and shared experience, and there is no more perfect concept to launch this regular event than this.

The first exhibition has been preceded by a collaborative day of creation, where artists created works inspired by the theme of Backyard Play with media including aerosol, pen and paint on canvas. The day was documented on camera and film, and this footage has been edited into a number of trailers and a documentary that will be screened as part of the exhibition.
We invite you to be part of our debut show.

T!M ANDREW ~ Big Deal

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Gaffa gallery have approached my pal Tim Andrew to do a re-launch of his exhibition Big Deal in a pop-up location down at The Rocks in Sydney. I was fortunate enough to get along to the debut of Big Deal a few months back at Gaffa and I highly recommend you get along to this show. Featured will be a bold mix of Tim’s graphic two dimensional work, including his signature colour palette and brilliant (and maybe a tad disturbing to some) sculptural pieces. I personally loved the pineapple’s and Kujo’s piece, as per the flyer below, go check it out for yourself.

Sidewayz 2011

Sunday, May 29th, 2011

I was stoked to get my mitz on a Ride snowboard to do my thing with for the 2011 Sidewayz exhibition…I no sooner got it back to base and took to it with my trusty angle grinder. The snowboard, which I may add was in great nic, now is divided into four separate pieces. Now what to make of it? hmmm.

I am told there is now over 65 contributing artists each doing their own thing on a skate deck or snowboard to be auctioned, with the proceeds going towards the Christchurch and Japan Earthquake reliefs. If you are around Sydney you should get along to this great cause, coz it’s gonna be huge! Brought to you by the good folk from Westsyde Connection and Balmoral Boards. Check the list of artists below.

BENNETT “ORANGES & LEMONS”

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

Be sure to get along to this show if in Sydney town!…

On the back of winning the Absolute Stairwell Gallery’s Peoples Choice auction and recently participating in the Adidas ‘All in Challenge’, BENNETT announces his solo show ‘ORANGES & LEMONS’.

The concept behind the show’s title is derived from a well known children’s nursery rhyme and is set to challenge the way we perceive images, from the way they are “meant” to be been viewed.

Working in mixed media, acrylic and aerosols, BENNETT’s work is often laiden with controversial and sometimes shocking commentary. He re-contextualises common, mass-produced objects and themes within the layers of his mashed up styled pieces. The result although entertaining to the audience, ultimately challenges viewers to draw upon their own conclusions from the numerous narratives and scenarios in which they are faced.

BENNETT currently works out of Sydney’s StupidKrap studios.

“ORANGES AND LEMONS” opens Thursday May 19th at 6pm.

Oh Really Gallery
55 Enmore Road, Newtown

Show continues till May 29th – Opening hours 11am – 6pm

Myself, Teazer and Roach painted this ripper (oooh) couple of weeks back. Psyched on the outcome. Was good to paint with Teazer again. More photos at Roachy’s blog http://theopeninghours.com.au/roach/?p=601

TEZ.

Australian artist TEZ is an all rounder, his art spans across an array of mediums including painting, sculpture, ceramics, screen-printing and vector illustration. Much of his work comprises of a combination of these mediums and often incorporates recycled materials and found objects. TEZ unveiled his debut solo exhibition “Sure Ain’t Sushi” at Sydney’s China Heights gallery in late 2009. He resides in his “fibro castle” on the New South Wales Central Coast and more often than not can be found in his shed creating his next fresh piece or just plain old tinkering.
