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.
