HOODS

Hoods 2016 Web Res

Created and curated by Fuel Magazine’s creative director Luke Ray, ‘Hoods’ brings together ten Australian artists under one roof. In late 2015, Fuel Magazine® started production of this exciting project. GM Holden were approached to be involved, their contribution being to provide ten brand new bonnets, each to be used as a canvas upon which an artist would create a piece of art with no given brief. Ten street, graphic and automotive artists from Sydney and Melbourne were hand picked and the bonnets delivered to each studio. A few months later, the bonnets came back as works of art and it’s these pieces that will collectively be on display at Suus.

Mysterious Al – It’s All Love

MYSTERIOUS

Still enjoying his life in Australia like some kind of extended Lads-On-Tour spraycation, Brit defector and ex-Finders Keepers aficionado Mysterious Al has steadily been upping his art game and these new abstracted monster collage pieces are peaker than the Peak District in the peak of summer. Peak on fleek. Or whatever the kids are saying these days…

His new body of work will be on view at M2 Gallery, Sydney from the 24-26th June. Check it.

Melbourne is a city that is constantly celebrating art, from the streets to the big galleries – at the core of their culture is a passionate love of art and all things creative and quirky. Some of them are born and raised there, many go for visit and never leave, others travel from far and wide to be able to call Melbourne home. This patchwork of experience weaves together a magnificent spectrum of diversity, giving the city a truly unique creative perspective.

On show at Auguste Clown Gallery this February, “Made In Melbourne” showcases outstanding work from the city’s best and brightest. Featuring artwork by both established and upcoming artists across various artistic mediums, the exhibition is a brilliant collection of paintings, drawings and handmade sculptures.

‘How to Live Forever’ – Mysterious Al

square_2

Mysterious Al is a street artist from London, UK. His current solo show ‘How to Live Forever’ is an introspective on leaving a lasting impression on this earth… On living forever.

The work continues Al’s exploration of tribal masks and paintings, this time using contemporary colours and methods. It questions time-travel, self-reflection and human mortality; all in Al’s playful yet satirical style.

“Making this body of work has been like falling in love. Painting walls is fun, but leaving a lasting positive impression on the earth is the ultimate up”.

‘How to Live Forever’ runs at No Vacancy Gallery, Melbourne from 21-26 July with an opening party 23rd July.

Unwell Bunny – ‘Subtuition’ – Interview

Ed_mg_4559 copy

Damo: Who is Unwell Bunny? Can you talk us through your distinctive style?

UB: Unwell Bunny is the artistic alter ego of Ed Bechervaise, and an energetic free flowing artistic philosophy which is always evolving. The style I’d describe as hyper subversive urban pop, its a fluid clash of borrowed images, graffiti, and emotional narrative. Its full of energy and iconography and is a commentary on the time we live in.
