Curated by BSIDE Gallery’s managing owner Ariana Leane, the exhibition seeks to educate and inform the gallery’s audience on the current movement of modern calligraphy, whilst acknowledging each artist’s particular style of lettering.

“Passion, devotion and unbridled attraction; Tuyuloveme talks about the nature of his love and relationship with the streets. The late nights, long quiet strolls through the thoroughfare. Appreciating, learning and getting to know each other, day after day, year after year, time after time. Born not out of the need for the destruction but out of a deep-seated curiosity and need to express. From Yogyakarta, to Moscow to Melbourne and many streets more, Tuyuloveme looks back on the constant in his journey of life, both personally and artistically. Intrinsically connected and intimately informed by his kinship with the streets, alluring and delicate at times, tumultuous and boisterous otherwise, Tuyuloveme looks back into this journey through his art framed with ‘Nothing But Love’. Unrestrained and unchecked.”
Founder of RSCLS Art Collective
Tuyuloveme is an Indonesian artist who began his artistic practice on the streets of Yogyakarta creating work in between the art and graffiti aesthetic.
Although not a native of Yogyakarta, he has been a resident for couple of years as a base for him to do creative work while working with his national and international network.
Tuyuloveme has been painting his unique style religiously on the streets for over 10 years. His paintings represent an alter-ego, a self-portrait of sorts, popping up on walls and street corners all over the world. His visual style is a juxtaposition of organised, expressive and chaotic expulsion; a contrast to his personality in real life.
You may find this artistic works in the walls or corner of streets in major cities all over Indonesia, Asia, Europe and Australia. His career has been nourished and influenced by extensive travels and an ability to work and collaborate with other artists. Tuyuloveme has been featured in a number of national and international group exhibitions, and is proud to present his first solo exhibition outside of Indonesia, ‘Nothing But Love’ at BSIDE Gallery in Melbourne, Australia.
The mountains we climb is just as much about
self exploration, as it is about Japan.
Ed’s work has always explored two sides of the human experience, The moment in time, and the effect and the memory of it, the re interpretation and the re processing of a glimpse..
That’s exactly what Ed does in exploring Japan, and its sensations. Its layers of feeling, through the chaos of
Tokyo to the stillness of Kanazawa hills.
Each image is broken down into fragments, with slabs of colour, texture and tone, that symbolise the experience, weather by night or day, dusk or after dawn. This is a time capsule of travel, but also of the struggle and exploration each of us go through in growing as people and evolving beyond what we know.
The mountains we climb is about pushing limits of understanding. Exploring that place that brings discomfort, pushing the elements of your processing ability. For Ed he has done just this with his exploration of abstraction, and re interpretation.
Under the Seed sprouted in West Footscray, starting as an eco-friendly organically grown garden with bio-degradable seedlings for sale or swap. Little by little the garden blossomed from herbs, fruit and vegetables to adding plants, succulents and cacti.
The concept ‘Artist Planters’ originated after commissioning Blender Studios artist Ruskidd to paint a DIY garden gnome using his brilliant techniques, and from there the idea was born. Under the Seed works side by side with local Melbourne artists to produce one-of-a-kind planter boxers to liven up your home or garden.
Artist Planters ‘where nature meets the streets’.
Sprung! brings together the first series of collaborative ‘Artist Planters’ curated and presented by Under the Seed and featuring artists:
Writers BERST, DEWS, FROST 45, GASP, HASER, JOINTS, MARK, KEZAM, and RAMS getting up at the Ironlak BBQ Burners Graffiti Jam in Auckland, NZ.
“Other than local graffiti battles organised by BERST, there are very few opportunities for writers from across the different generations to come together, and connect on a wall to share ideas of their process and style.”

‘The most valuable lesson my father taught me was to know when to walk, and when to clench both fists.’
Proudly presenting his debut solo show ‘Adherence’, Melbourne-based artist Dose explores a culture, people, and the evident blurred lines which orbit his world.
Dose provides the viewer with an opportunity to experience his current environment in which remaining adherent becomes increasingly more paramount.
Comprising of four tangible series of works utilising mixed media approaches on a multitude of surfaces, ‘Adherence’ draws definitions between graffiti and art, required sub-cultural errands, anecdotal relationships, and an ode to a youthful memory.
Exhibition open for viewing Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th of June More info here
Having been based in Melbourne for the majority of his creative career, Dose has focused on providing technically sound and challenging works to the city’s surfaces, whilst developing suited studio based practices. The culmination of both disciplines have given rise to ‘Adherence’.
