Melbourne based ink recycler’s Lousy Ink are hosting their first group exhibition, ‘Lousy Show’, which will celebrate local talent, featuring over 40 creatives.
In 1985, in a small art studio on the Eastside of Santa Cruz, CA, Jim Phillips Sr. was creating images that unbeknownst to him would affect generations of artists and skateboarders to come. Of all of the iconic imagery that Jim has created; the Screaming Hand logo has stood the test of time. Thirty years after its inception, the Screaming Hand still remains an unmistakable symbol of youth and skateboard culture.
In honor of Jim Phillips Sr. and the Screaming Hand logo, 48 of the world’s most influential artists of the
past 30 years have been invited to interpret and pay homage to this iconic image. Each artist’s interpretation of “The Hand” will be on display.
‘Bootleg to the Future’ is the debut, solo art show and ultimate ‘Back to the Future’ tribute by Melbourne-based artist and designer, Callum Preston AKA “The Tooth” from Everfresh studio.
The show is a tribute to the trilogy of ‘Back To The Future’ films, which were released in 1985, ’89 and ’90. ‘Bootleg to the Future’ is taking place on the final remaining date mentioned, the day that Marty arrives in the future in the second film, Wednesday Oct 21st 2015. Artist, Callum Preston, was born in 1984 and as he puts it, the inspiration for this show has been a lifetime in the making.
