A SHOWCASE of Stupid Krap…


Curated by Ben Frost and Aaron Craig, SHOWCASE brings together a selection of NEW TALENT as well as some of the best Australian and international artists that have worked with Stupid Krap over the last 12 months.

Co-curator Ben Frost words Damo up on the show.

Damo: Tell us about the upcoming Stupid Krap Showcase?

BF: It’s an intimate snapshot of Stupid Krap’s footprint within the local and international art world – celebrating the amazing talent that we have had the pleasure to work with over the last few years, and some of the new artists we’re excited to showcase.

Blankspace Gallery will be filled from floor to ceiling with international artists like Sharktoof, Greg Gossel, Mysterious Al and Denial, as well as Australian artists who have been making it big overseas like Vexta, Twoone, Gemma O’Brien and We Buy Your Kids. Some of the new names that we’re excited to work with for the first time, such as Nathaniel Kiwi, John Avanti, Loretta Lizzio, Danilo Brandao and William Ngheim – will be well worth coming to check out.

Greg Gossel x Atlas decks

Greg Gossel has received a fair bit of flak, rightly or wrongly, in the past for some of his work closely resembling that of Faile. And while a lot of his artwork to date has done little for me, these new collaboration decks with Atlas look damn decent. Most things with Mike Tyson on are going to be good, but  I really like the look of the retro Ironman deck.

Greg Gossel "Zissou"

Greg Gossel gets a fair bit of flack, some of it justified IMO for his style being similar to Faile. But anything involving Bill Murray, or indeed The Life Aquatic is worthy of a post and in many way I think this is one of Greg’s stronger pieces of recent times.

This 16×20  ‘archival giclee’ (whatever the hell one of those might be…) is available now via Spoke Editions, signed/numbered and limited to 200 for $50, which seems pretty damn reasonable. Especially when the original this is based off was $3k.
