TLP Print Release – The Rise of the Samurai of Paul

Their forthcoming print release titled ‘The Rise of the Samurai of Paul’ sees a trio of beaming, three-headed characters in a ‘floating city’ theme, originally hand drawn on canvas, created for their spring 2015 exhibition at the Megumi Ogita Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. The occasion was, of course, marked by more of their Lads appearing outdoors in various spots, making themselves at home all around the famously vibrant city. It is a print that condenses the ambitious, irreverent brilliance of the pair as seen in vast, outdoor paintings in far-from-home locations, from Oslo to Los Angeles.

Erlin Geffrard: Tell me a little about this show…

Spencer Keeton Cunningham: Basically Erlin, as you know, You and I have been making paintings together and video works which we call video paintings since around 2007. Sometimes it’s hard for people to even tell us apart within the art world. That’s part of what we have been attempting to show in our art since we first met way back around 8 or 9 years ago. And Jaque Fragua has been a fellow art collaborator and friend ever since we started doing shows together in San Francisco around 2008. This show is a culmination of works both solo and collaborative both on video and canvas between all of us.

Ken Taylor: My first memory of the screaming hand was probably when i was 12/13 and sated to get into skating which eventually lead me towards graff. It takes me back to drawing that hand over and over again on school folders, my old yellow canvas school bag, files, pencil cases – pretty much any item I owned that was meant to stay neat and tidy was covered in the hand an a bunch of other 80’s skate graphics.

MEGGS intends that his artworks reflect the Yin and Yang, or that two halves make up a whole.

George Rose x Screaming Hand


George Rose is often mistaken for a boy. She is actually a visual artist with a flair for not taking life too seriously. She spends most of her time up ladders painting murals and sometimes makes it into her studio just to try something a bit more normal. She feels most as home with a paintbrush in hand but also likes the feel of a pen, spray can, drill or Wacom tablet.

Since graduating George has thrown caution to the wind and abandoned her formal design training opting to pursue a multidisciplinary art practice. She has spent the last several years pretending to be a gypsy, rarely in one city for longer then a few months completing art commissions for clients in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra. George had her first solo shown at Nishi Gallery and since has exhibited in group shows such as Curvy World Exhibition at aMBUSH Gallery Sydney, Uncommon Places, a part of Melbourne Fringe Festivals keynote event Melbourne, Bright Side Exhibition at The Chop Shop Canberra, Jannet Clayton Gallery Sydney and worked with various festivals including: You Are Here Canberra, ArtNotApart Canberra and This Is Not Art Newcastle to name a few. She has also completed several residencies creating murals with teens at the Bimberi Youth Justice Centre and is currently the artist in residence at Red Bubble Melbourne.

back to?

Luca Ionescu: The graphic for me has its earliest roots round 1990, the fam was living
in Fairfield an outer suburb of Sydney. That summer all the local kids
would be building our own make shift ramps to launch from at home and if
at all possible making a trip across town to get together at the large
vert ramp at Fairfield Pool, which attracted a congregation older
skaters from all around showing off their skills, whilst the youngsters
would sit gazing in awe as if upon some idol skate gods. The 7 ply
objects of desire were adorned in Santa Cruz & Peralta graphics. The
rendering and detail on Jim Phillips speed wheels is the earliest memory
of spotting the screaming hand along w the dope vains making the
lettering out the back wrapping round the wheel.
