Philth & Splendour

Philweb

Subtly straddling the boundaries between illustration, design, street artist or graffiti, Philth is uncategorizable. His work is haunting, yet endearing, strangely attractive to the senses; the heady mix of symbolism and alchemy present in his work is inspired by the art in science, Victorian paintings and woodblock printing.

Projects with Adidas, Snow Queen Vodka & China White projects have all popped up to pay the bills, but he prefers to spend his time collaborating with start-ups like Viva Sativa & UTC from grass roots level where he has more creative control and artistic integrity.

Shannon McKinnon

Shannon McKinnon is the boss of Aisle6ix Industries screen-printers, operator of Secret Walls Australia division and an all-round all-Australian legend. He took a little time out of his busy lifestyle to give us the lowdown on his love affair with screen-printing, Australian art and Chilli.

Big Shannie Mac, tell us a little bit about what you do… What’s the crack with Aisle6ix, how did it evolve? And has it always been something you’ve wanted to do?

Aisle6ix Industries developed when I moved to Sydney from Canberra and fell in love with screen-printing. During my studies I met Greg Beer, VNA’s art director, and he and I would come up with designs and I would screen-print them. After four years in Sydney, I moved to London and spent two years working for Photofit, an amazing screen-printing shop just near Old Street tube. It was back-to-basics and an amazing experience. I then moved to Melbourne and worked for Screenplay in Fitzroy then made another move, this time to Sydney, where Aisle6ix Industries really got its roots. So after lots of travel and with a huge amount of support from my girlfriend, Shakira, Aisle6ix Industries is busier than ever.

His characters are some of the most unique and evocative around.
