Outside the Box – Creature Creature

Outside the Box continues in Melbourne, each day up to four artists have exactly 8 hours to create a piece within the confinements of the gallery, utilising only the materials provided to them.

We have spoken to a few of the artists to get an idea of who they are, what makes them tick and an insight into their OTB piece. First up, Creature Creature.

Who are you and what do you do? Why art?

Our names are Ambrose and Chanel but we go under the artist name Creature Creature. When we met we were pretty inseparable and both equally passionate about art since we could hold a pencil. We soon decided to take our collaboration seriously and do all our art work under the one name that represents both of us. It has really pushed us individually and as a partnership.

‘Visual Disobedience’ – Shepard Fairey


‘Visual Disobedience’ is a large scale survey exhibition of Shepard Fairey, showing for the first time in Hong Kong. The show explores the trajectory of Fairey’s career focusing on the theme of power and responsibility, contemplating the wide spread abuse by positions of authority, and the response this exploitation solicits. The show runs from 27 October to 27 November 2016, and will also feature new large scale public murals, inspired by Hong Kong and China.

Shepard Fairey’s vision and mantra, “Question Everything” seeks to redefine the complex relationship between humanity and the environment. From his first sticker campaign featuring images of Andre the Giant, appropriated from the comedic supermarket tabloid Weekly World News to his most recent works, Fairey seeks to effect change from the embedded and conventionally accepted systems of contemporary society.

‘Kaamos’ – Rubin415


Known for his cleanly executed geometric lines and shapes typical of his style, Rubin415 has been associated with the greater ‘Graffuturism’ movement; a style not widely exposed to the Hong Kong public, attributed from the artistic influences of cyber-futurism and suprematism. The dark tones and pale colours featured in the work of Rubin415 are brought to life with through the subtle sense of movement that exists within his pieces, created by the soft curves and sharp vertexes- an ensemble is created that may appear both electric and harmonic. Famously, spraying his first tag at an especially young age- having started with traditional graffiti; typography has had immense influence on his most recent works- notably upon his sense of composition, that achieving a sense of poetism and that the pieces are communicating ideas seemingly through dialogue. Rubin415 is now a renowned, recognisable name among the greater New York street art community.

TWOONE – ‘100 Faces’

Hiroyasu Tsuri — aka TWOONE — is a perpetual traveller. As an internationally acclaimed artist exhibiting throughout the globe, it’s part of the job, and it’s what drives this large-scale celebration of diversity and cultural exchange. A visual meditation on the people who cross his path and the places whose paths he crosses,‘100 Faces’ is a stirring exploration of who we are, as nomadic humans of the twenty-tens.

At 18 years of age, Hiroyasu emigrated from Japan to Australia. Now living in Berlin, as his career exploded, so did the number of stamps in his passport. Spending the last three years traversing Europe, Asia and the States, he captured the multitude of faces around him through candid photographs or quick sketches in his ever-present notebook. A medley of those he knows intimately, intertwined with unsuspecting strangers spotted in bars, on trains or even in books, these faces are the physical structures behind which all sorts of stories reside. Although he can’t know for sure, and never will, the ubiquity of migration in our increasingly cosmopolitan community drives Hiroyasu to contemplate the histories of those around him.


This extraordinarily extensive series sees Hiroyasu return to these snapshots to develop them into fully-fleshed artworks. Combining watercolour, pencil, acrylics, collage, spray paint, mirrored glass and anything else in reach, he renders an expressive textural landscape that arrests the viewer and draws them in. Renowned for his strikingly large, public murals, ‘100 Faces’ is an unmissable opportunity to experience Hiroyasu’s work in an entirely new space.

Rone – ‘Empty’

These days, Rone doesn’t need an introduction.  Internationally renowned for his large scale female portraits, he has been to almost every corner of the globe beautifying the walls with local women.  For the first time in two years, Rone embarking on a new show of absolutely epic proportions.  If you are in Melbourne, you do not want to miss this, as it is the biggest show you will see! In between painting walls, floors and finishing touches, Rone caught up with Damo…

Can you tell us a bit about your show, ‘Empty’?

Rone:     It comes back to empty spaces.  There was a tradition happening in the early 2000s in Melbourne where people would find an abandoned building, everyone was given the location and people would go and paint, and then there would be a show until everyone got kicked out.
That was one of the things I really loved about the culture when I had just got in to it.  So this show is a little nod to that but also to what was here before there was nothing? The story of each space is told through what is left behind.

As most buildings are doomed for demolition, subsequently so is the rich heritage of urban art in East London. Is there now anything left to Save, apart from ourselves?

By sharing personal photos and archival images and footage, the local people of The Wick, Hackney WickED and Save Hackney Wick have contributed to what promises not to be just another gallery show but an insight into this unique community past and present.

Exhibiting along with the ‘Lunatics’ will be the launch of the printed posters of Sisters In Print,  a collective of opinionated sixteen national and international female artists, sharing  the love of print and print making. The prints produced for the show are all printed in Aida’s studio in the heart of Hackney Wick.
