I don’t often get this transparent, but this weekend that just rolled past was one of a kind. I Rocked the Bells with Lauryn Hill, Wu-Tang and Snoop Dogg (as well as Rakim, KRS1, Slick Rick, MURS, A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes and the list goes on), bombed NoLita, ate (amazing) tacos, and finished off the weekend with a beer over looking the Manhattan skyline. Pretty dope. So long, summer – it’s been real!
When y’all coming to visit?!
Last Friday, Meggs opened “Sons of Privilege” at Lo-Fi in Sydney. Check the epic installation.

More news soon.
Next Friday the 3rd September our show Tokyo Deluxe opens at Thinkspace Gallery in Culver City, LA. On our way back from Melbourne in April we made a detour to Tokyo which was the focus for our new paintings in this exhibition. All the paintings for the show are now finished…so we are now working night and day in out studio on an installation which will transform the Thinkspace project room into our own Tokyo oasis!! More to come soon…..
Beastman (Brad Eastman) is an artist, designer and photographer based in Sydney, Australia. Using acrylic, ink and aerosol he produces intricately detailed artworks depicting a geometric, parallel world of scaly skinned, bold outlined, beast-like characters gripped by fear, anger, stress, jealousy, lust, confusion and paranoia. Years of skateboarding has strongly influenced Beastman's characters, concepts and unique style, developed over many years of drawing in sketchbooks and shooting photos. Heraldry, symmetry, patterns, geometry, family, friendship, nature, the ocean, violence, spirits and the afterlife are all themes which are becoming more and more evident in his artwork.
