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:
25 Easey street
Organized Chaos – Slicer – Backwoods Gallery

The beloved Beastman returns to Melbourne with a brand new solo show, ‘Natural Progression’.
