Two weeks ago we posted up part 1 of the BPTD Production video showing Anthony Lister at Wynwood Miami..
Well here is part 2, including an interview of Carla Azar, drummer for Autolux. She worked with Jack White on his latest album Blunderbuss and was involved in the opening night of the show, performing under the direction of Anthony Lister.
The enfant terrible of the Australian street art scene has returned to Sydney to set up his studio ahead of his upcoming solo exhibition at Olsen Irwin Gallery in August.
Prepare for mayhem, packs of ballerina-raping dingos, distorted superheroes, crocodile-headed nudes and bogan lifestyle commentary.
Living the dream, Lister, albeit a slightly different dream to most…
A video has just been sent our way of Anthony Lister painting at Art Basel Miami filmed by BPTD Production
This week we are spoilt for choice with exhibitions, a delicious melting pot of styles, cultures and approaches! Here are our top picks for the week..
Cranio – Lost in London
Anyone who has walked the streets of London in the last few weeks will have been pleasantly surprised to see an army of blue Amazonian characters taking over our walls. Cranio is from Sao Paulo, Brazil and has come over to London to see how his indigenous men will be perceived by us, as he paints light hearted pieces with deeper underlying questions oabout consumerism, identity, corruption and the environment. He explains: “I want to show things that are happening with the indigenous people living in Brazil. Some of them are trying to adapt; others have adapted really well to capitalism; others are trying to sell the Brazilian rainforest to grab some money and a cool iPhone.”
The exhibition itself opens at Red Bull Studios, Tooley St tomorrow night, 15th and runs until Monday 19th.
Louis Masai – AfroFabRicatiOn
We’ve been a fan of Louis’ beautiful large-scale personified animals for a while now and can’t wait to see what his solo show has in store. Louis has an incredible love and respect for nature and his place in the world and that passion shines through in his work. His work currently focuses on African fabric patterns and animals, this concept has crept seamlessly into this exciting new collection in the form of the Pencil Case Thieves.
Expect taxidermy and reclaimed materials galore among other things. This promises to be like nothing you’ve ever seen before. It opens tomorrow night, 15th at Nancy Victor Gallery, Charlotte Place, W1T 1SG and runs until 7th December. RSVP email@example.com to attend the opening night.
Check out this video of Louis talking about his work, shot by Tee Byford.
