TINA/walkARTbout flics & some history

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Newcastle’s This Is Not Art (TINA) festival is an annual event now in it’s thirteenth year! This year I was asked to be involved in walkARTbout along with several other artists, each designated wall space in the city to do their thing. TINA 2010 is special because it is the first year an actual street art component (well legal, anyway) has been added to the event program. This is somewhat surprising when you learn that the the festivals namesake is derived from the infamous (well, if you are from Newcastle) graffiti which once graced the then derelict Latec House.

Organizers in previous years had struggled to incorporate “street art” into the event with opposition from local townsfolk, business and council. This was mainly due to many misconceptions, fear and probably for the most part ignorance. Come 2010 however, attitudes have shifted and the addition of walkARTbout has been welcomed and the overall response has been a positive one, so much so, it will be a permanent fixture in the TINA program for years to come. Full credit and a special thanks must go to Festival Coordinator Simone Sheridan, walkARTbout Curator Carli Hyland and the rest of the TINA 2010 team.

Below, the infamous “This Is Not Art” piece…..

…..and here are a few snaps and video below from artWALKabout 2010.

Mori Art Museum – Tokyo

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

I made such a great decision to go to the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo. They had a show on called “Sensing Nature” which was many high-grade installations by some of the top conceptual artists from Japan including Yoshioka Tokyujin, Shinodo Taro & Kuribayashi Takashi. It was incredible. Check my website for more flicks from the exhibition.

New Nawlz iz up peeple!!!

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

After a recent abduction, hijacking of brain and reinsertion of freqon technology, Harley’s mind now grapples with an onslaught of the subconscious kind. Twisted images of buildings crumbling upon themselves enter his dream world along with other unwanted guests.

This episode was bought to you by the letter T – for tripppppppy. I tried to go about this episode with very unconventional approach. Not that Nawlz has much in the way of a conventional approach as it is. But. usually I do have a bit of a plan. Not this time. NO! This time all plans were thrown out the window as I drew, animated and programmed all at once. I wanted to see where it would take me. Ultimately this experimental approach, resulted in me putting my own brain through the blender as I tried to figure out what the hell I was doing. Alas, it seems to have turned out alright. And the bugs are dead. Or are they? Fuck, I hope they are. Those goddamn bugs. They were feeding on my mind!

BIG THANKS to Duncan Gates for his genius programming skills. Remember that scene where all those people grind together in a grimey mess… that was Dunc! Nice one! Also thanks to Jordan King as per usual for his skin wrenching sounds. I highly recommend putting the head phones on and blasting your ears off! Go get Nawlzy people! http://www.nawlz.com

Tabaimo

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Talented young Tabaimo creates animated works that are as beautifully crafted and aesthetically appealing as they are enigmatic, fascinating, and often quite disturbing. Not content to simply construct beautiful or intriguing images, she clearly aims to offer a complex and pessimistic vision of Japanese society at the start of the new millennium.

I wonder how much the cells from the animation would fetch.

Unsigned, one of 10,000, and painted anonymously in a factory. Just like all his other work, probably go for about 15k.

He’s got it worked out.


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.
