POW! WOW! x RVCA – RVCAloha

Every winter the advocates and artists of RVCA gather on the shores of Oahu to skate, surf and paint. Dubbed RVCAloha, the 2014 edition had RVCA and POW! WOW! painting a new mural at the Keolu Skatepark in Kailua, Hawaii. Battling intermittent showers and the harsh Hawaiian sun, Dmote and Soul completed a stunning piece of art complete with volcanoes and cosmic dolphins.

Here’s a round-up of some of the action of 2014:

James Jirat Patradoon – Hydra

The first of two exhibitions spanning Melbourne and then Sydney, ‘Hydra’ by James Jirat Patradoon channels the manic energy of the way we experience imagery online to create a series of large-scale surrealist graphite drawings.

Irrational conscious stream collages made with imagery collected from insomniac ebay hunting, tumblr, and image stock libraries are ‘slowed down’ and redrawn using the timeless and traditional medium of graphite on paper. A deliberate attempt to ‘re-authenticate’ and warm the mechanically produced to create a hybrid of analogue and digital.

Opening Night Thursday 28th August
Exhibition continues until 20th September
RVCA Corner Gallery
82 Stanley St, Collingwood
