‘Meanwhile in Ultraland’ is LOOK, aka Lars Wunderlich’s upcoming solo-show at Epicentro art showcase his current works on canvas, drawings and prints. The exhibition centers around the series …It was all green instead.

The topic of the big sized paintings is going back to a dream LOOK had as a teenager: Plunging into the fluid ground of the earth he was able to see the blurred world from below. Carrying and being inspired by this vision LOOK felt now encouraged to paint what he saw down there so many years ago. This dream considered as a starting point for the entire imagery of the artist is strongly connected to the topics he is dealing with. Meanwhile in Ultraland is a post apocalyptic world, ruled by nature.

Opening October 12th – 26th

two one add

TwoOne is one of Australia’s leading street artists and ‘OUTSIDERS’ is a body of work completed in a new Berlin studio.

‘OUTSIDERS’ opens this Friday at 6pm (Oct 10th) at Backwoods Gallery.

TwoOne has been kind enough to chat and tell us a bit more about he exhibition and his processes. Keep reading as there is a terrific process video too!

Damo: Tell us a bit about yourself, how you got into art, and how you describe your work to someone who hasn’t been lucky enough to encounter it before:

TWOONE: I’m originally from Japan, move to Melbourne at age of 18. I then lived and started working as artist in Melbourne for 10 years. I moved to Berlin early this year.

I work with lots of different material, and form, and my style changes depending on what I use. There is loose theme that goes through my work, which is psychological portrait.
Psychological portrait is visual translation of people’s emotions, and personality, often usings animals as symbols.
