Cinematic in both tone and scale, SUBURBAN investigates the iconography surrounding the family home and its place in the current economic climate. The exhibition presents eight large-scale photographic works and a multi-channel, surround sound video installation. This work documents site-specific interventions directly incorporating suburban homes undertaken by Strange in Ohio, Detroit, Alabama, New Jersey, New York and New Hampshire. These involved painting onto suburban homes and in some cases, burning them to the ground. Strange then worked with his production team to meticulously document these interventions in film and photography.

Rodrigo Branco’s “Distintos Filhos” (“Distinct Family”) Series

Brazilian artist Rodrigo Branco spent last couple of months working on a comprehensive series of portraits titled “Distintos Filhos” (Distinct Family). Commissioned by MyFinBec art project, part of the the series was recently presented to public @ Paris Urban Art Fair.

Branco was born and raised in Sao Paulo, and was showing interest for art from his early age. After discovering graffiti on the streets of his hometown, he started painting in public, but soon switched from textual towards figurative work. Influenced by the visual impairment he suffered from as a kid, his abstract portraits are showing subjects as blurred patches of colors and shapes. These images are inspired by his childhood memories of circus visits and looking at his dad’s photographs. For this series the artist created 42 such paintings using graphite, spray paint, acrylic and oil on canvas, along with 2 larger pieces that are used for vine labels. The canvases are available for purchase via MyFinBec website and are coming unstretched or framed, along with 2 bottles of organic wine with his Branco’s artworks.

To Find Authenticity; Saber Interview

 

1.colorsintobattle.web

 

One of the most passionate, articulate and important individuals ever to grace an art form Saber needs very little introduction, his intricate and giant style find form in everything from pure abstraction to confrontational political action. Whilst the glory days of record breaking pieces may be behind him, he retains an honesty whose clarity is a cutting as ever. I had the pleasure of speaking to him about progress, parenthood and politics.

Jason Parker – ‘Room with a View’

I close the door behind me, lock it, then deadlock it. I’ve already put out the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign. The
room is large, empty, save for a small desk that sits in the center. I make my way to the window to take in the view, I am greeted by a familiar sight, the scene below born 27 years ago, changing daily. Untarnished views that stretch to a horizon that is ever growing, structures fall, new ones erected, I take it all in. On top of the desk sits a small stack of paper, a pencil and a modest lamp. I flick the switch on the lamp basking the desk in a warm yellow glow, the walls catch a small amount of light, walls not built with steel and concrete but with experiences, emotions, and insight. I take one last look at the view, take a seat and draw.

Opening at Melbourne’s ‘Off the Kerb Gallery’ on 18 March from 6pm and on show until 31 March 2016

“Let the good times roll” by Johan Moorman in Heerlen, NL

JM01web

Hard working people from HeerlenMurals project in The Netherlands had another successful year in 2015. After new interventions and murals by 1010, Dourone, Felipe Pantone, Millo, etc, they recently wrapped up a fresh new piece by Johan Moorman from Eindhoven.

The mural is inspired by the mining history of the region, the heavy industry and it’s monotone architecture. The building that Moorman worked on is from the 60’s, and has many rims and edges, glass and pebble, which made it challenging to work. But, the artist got around to wrapping those elements with his graphic imagery, creating a cartoon like retro-futuristic setting. Using limited color palette and basic patterns, the finished mural plays with perspective while utilizing the given architectural elements as essential part of the work. Along with bright colors, the artist thought the people could use more uplifting elements so he added the text ‘Let The Good Times Roll’ to complete the piece.
