‘Tree Spirits’ – Ears

One of Australia’s most iconic street artists, Ears, presents his first Melbourne solo show in over 4 years.

Tree Spirits is a culmination of work that Ears has produced during a month long residency at Juddy Roller, using the entire gallery space as his studio to produce a mix of large format and smaller mixed media paintings on canvas and wood panel.

Tree Spirits delivers of a series of imagined landscapes that reference mountainous Australian bush lands, accompanied by floating portraits warped by playful line work offset by sparse graphic elements.

Ears uses bold colours and geometric lines to create compositions born of a street context yet taken further into ideas of symmetry and form, utilising the tension between the man made world and the natural environment.

Ears is a multi-disciplinary artist working in sound, painting, video and photography. Ears’ work was born in the street and has matured into a successful fine art career, with many solo shows under his belt and multiple curatorial projects.

‘Satellite’ – Kyle Hughes-Odgers

Kyle Hughes-Odgers Satellite

Australian Kyle Hughes-Odgers’ newest solo show opens at Turner Galleries (Perth, Australia) this week.

Turner Galleries have said “In the five years since we first worked with Kyle Hughes-Odgers, his career has taken a meteoric rise. From fairly humble beginnings as a street artist, this career has evolved rapidly to include major public art commissions, three children’s books, gallery exhibitions in Australia and overseas, and of course the (now international) street art has continued unabated. The spindly limbed characters that populate his artworks have certainly struck a chord with his viewers. They have a universal narrative; they struggle with their lives, carry their burdens, face difficult choices and are not afraid to dream.

Hughes-Odgers’ most important commissions include an eighty meter building exterior (including LED lighting design) at the new Perth international airport. Other recent career highlights include winning the Crystal Kite Award (Australia/New Zealand) with Meg McKinlay for their children’s book Ten tiny things, a forty meter mural for Murdoch University, a three storey building exterior in Washington DC, an interior mural for Jamie Oliver’s Perth restaurant, a four storey mural overlooking the Mitchell Freeway in Perth, solo exhibitions in Los Angeles, Amsterdam and Berlin, plus his third children’s book is due to be published in November 2015.”

The show consists of new drawings, works on linen and small sculptural works and if you can make it, is unmissable!

Exhibition runs June 26 – July 25 2015.

Jet Martinez presents KABLOOM at Black Book Gallery

Black Book Gallery and Denver Arts and Venues present artist Jet Martinez and his exhibition KABLOOM.

Jet creates beautiful artworks formed of lacquered plates from the state of Michoacan, Mexico. He takes information and inspiration from folk art he grew up with and reinterprets those works as means of paying homage to his own heritage.

Instead of recreating traditional themes, he utilises urban influences such as street art, hip hop, punk rock and multiculturalism to produce some truly unique works.

ROA paints new mural in Sardinia

roa-mural-sardinia-1

VNA 12 cover artist ROA recently painted another of his striking animal murals in Sardinia.

The Belgian artist visited the mediterranean island to paint the mural as part of the Murartista Street Art festival, taking place in the small town of Sadali. His piece fittingly depicts the Sardinian wild boar tied by a rope to the skull of another boar, a commentary on the nature of life and death.

ROA joined artists Yama, Peeta and duo CAKTUS & MARIA for this year’s Murartista event, curated by LOOK-OUT, a new cultural association based in Sardinia.

roa-mural-sardinia-3

The festival aims to develop innovative initiatives for artistic exchange in Sardinia, inviting leading international street artists to work in a collaborative, small community environment to explore new processes and concepts in public spaces.
