Nice Many
As this is Stable’s virgin post and with 4 months travel to the biggest festivals in the world, I actually thought the best photo to start with was Red Bull Music Academy guru Many sporting the classic “Nice” Tee. Our good friend was trying to complete an interview while some of us 2007 RBMA veterans were giving him the wind up…good times. RBMA 2008 edition is currently taking place in Toront, Canada.

Shiney Space Junk – by Jagi

Shiny Space Junk – The First Solo show by Jagi.
Launches 6pm 19th of october at Paper Shadow Gallery. Franklin Street Melbourne.

I’ve worked with Jagi for as far back as I can remember and I’m extremely proud to be hosting his first ever solo show at our gallery.

James has build up a serious following around Australia, both from his Shadow (RIP) t-shirt and having always brought the most mind-blowing artwork to group shows.

James Greenaway’s (or Jagi..) illustrative imagery is best described as pop-fantasy art, taking inspiration from manga, retro videogames, art nouveau and surrealism.
Portrayed with these stylistic influences and within Jagi’s worlds live giant, childlike, bionic samurai creatures, sometimes riddled with grief or floating around blissfully daydreaming, but always trapped and inseparable from their biomechanical armor. Bored and melancholic adventurers are found sitting a top floating platform game islands with rubix cubes and power-ups gathering dust nearby. These characters and landscapes are a reflection Jagi’s youth, introvertedly spent drawing and designing platform and adventure video games in his sketchbooks.

For better or for worse, he never really grew out of this habit of drawing, and now after decades of scribbling in sketchbooks, its time to make money!
This show, the first solo exhibition by Jagi, contains a collection of limited edition giclee prints, original canvases and installations. Without sticking to any specific theme, these works simply reflect the emotion & imagination of Jagi while paying tribute to his predecessors & sources of inspiration.

I really am so proud to see this show come to fruition, Jagi has come along way and based on the talent and vision that he has I can’t help but feel that its just the beginning.
Make sure you head down to the gallery on the 19th of October the check out the show,

Below are some pieces from previous shows.

New art by the Beans

32_780-1020.jpg

This awesome piece of work was just added to the site by Bonsai and Two (the beans). Last time i saw this piece, a pair of Belgium art buyers were cracking a major fat over it at the Beans studio, i guess they didn’t get there hands on it. To our good fortune, cause here it is.

Acrylic on wood, the wood has a wide backing frame behind it and features alternating elephant characters by the two artists, click on the image to get a closeup, the textures need to be appreciated properly.

Its the same design that the two painted outside of Until Never for Nail’s bandana show, and featured at the King Brown issue 3 launch at China Heights in Sydney.

T-shirt can’t die

Just saw this on Hiroshi Fujiwara’s Honeyee blog, an addition to a conversation started by Plain Gravy ‘Pharrel can’t skate’ that was continued by our ‘Neither can Lupe’ T (here).

In 40-50 years from now, where we’re all elderly street wear skeletons, pinching nurses on the ass, complaining about the youth while blissfully defecating in our pants these T-shirts and the subsequent street culture commentary that they highlight will surly to be an obscure in-joke that the kids just wont get. A day i eagerly look forward to.

Until then, mines going on ice.
