Backwoods Gallery, often referred to Australia’s best ‘street art’ gallery, sits in a quiet industrial back street of Collingwood (Victoria, Australia) at the end of a passageway just wide enough to fit a car. It is the stuff of art collectors’ dreams – regularly holding shows with artists from all over the globe.

Our man in Canberra, Damian Wardle, recently caught up with Backwoods Gallery driving force, Alexander Mitchell for an interview, here’s the latest word from the Melbourne studio.

Jun Inoue – KUH at Backwoods

by

Jun Inoue was raised in regional Kanagawa, Japan, where he studied Shodō (traditional Japanese calligraphy). His grandfather, a Zen Monk, became a major influence on his philosophy and aesthetic vision. Upon moving to Tokyo, the energy of the city’s underground – jungle, hip-hop and most importantly, graffiti – played a major role in further shaping his aesthetic development.

Coalescence – Drewfunk x Otis Chamberlain at Backwoods

by

COALESCENCE, a collaborative show from Otis Chamberlain and Drewfunk, opens this Friday from 6pm-10pm at Backwoods Gallery, Melbourne.

OTISNDREW-PROMO-PRINTa

Coalescence: the merging of many into one. A fundamental principle evident across all magnitudes and timescales. From the behaviour of subatomic particles and neurosynaptic pathways – to the evolution of galaxy super-clusters and beyond, Coalescence is the unifying process that defies entropy, organizes systems, manifests structure and perpetuates the exchange of energy and information – the act of creation itself.

Shida – Ecstasy In The Abyss

by

y-GWunNhcY_lek8cCG7hs33k60ng92riSme2Dmf-Wi8

Returning to Melbourne after a huge worldwide expedition touring four continents, Shida is currently working on his latest installation at Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne. Exploring fractal, cataclysmic colours and a constantly evolving mythology, Shida weaves an intense mythology in his work.

Congruous with his work, Shida’s name embodies flow, movement, and vivid colours. Enhanced by graphic lines, he pushes ideas of socio-sexual aspects of the body, his characters sprawling across buildings, wrapped in chaotic embraces, manic laughter spilling from their lips.

Ecstasy in the Abyss opens on the 19th April at:

Backwoods Gallery.
25 Easey street
Collingwood
Melbourne
