New Evolution – An Exhibition by Junky Projects

New Evolution Junky Projects

Vs. Gallery is excited to present ‘New Evolution’ – the latest exhibition by Melbourne artist ‘Junky Projects’ (Daniel Lynch).

Well known for his sculptural ‘junk sentinels’ posted on the streets of Melbourne and throughout Australia in their thousands, Daniel’s new exhibition sees him focus on the theme of ‘waste as art’.

Having spent many weekends and late nights scouring the city streets for unique discarded objects, he carefully reassembles them into amazing and whimsical sculptures and dioramas. His creative ‘recycling’ brings a new and unexpected form of life to an exhausted environment.

Whilst Daniel’s art is often noted for its elegant simplicity, in this new body of work he introduces a new complexity to a number of his sculptures. Using found objects such as cutlery, hubcaps, broken toys, doorknobs and kitchen utensils, his assemblages take on striking and poetic characters – each with a life of their own.

‘The New Evolution’ portrays an imagined dystopian future where the only existing life forms are composed of junk, refuse and the detritus of a decaying world. It is a prophetic statement for the future of life on our planet and a hope that existence must continue in some form or another.

Sunset Cities – Oh Baby (Official Video)

Straight fire coming from Sunset Cities, a new collaborative group formed over a plate of Ethiopian food in Adelaide early last year between So.Crates (Cazeaux O.S.L.O. & Skomes), Nelson Dialect, and Alnitak Kid.

 

 

 

“Oh Baby!” Call it out when you are high on love. “Oh Baby!” Cry it out when that same love gets you low. Over the soulful, trunk rattling production of Melbourne beat-maker Skomes, rapper/poets Nelson Dialect and Cazeaux O.S.L.O. weigh in on their perspective of love and loss. This track highlights the lyrical heavyweights mastery of their individual cadence and sound and simultaneously solidifies their union on record as a supergroup comfortable with the allure of boom bap basics and the challenge of great story telling. The one and only Jace XL (Hiatus Kaiyote) brings it home with a single question. “Do you love now love?” In the age of all things aimed toward instant gratification, “Oh Baby!” is both a love and anti-love anthem sent from the heart by two blues men of the new century.

Back and Forward – An exhibition by Unwell Bunny

Unwell Bunny

OPENING FRIDAY FEB 8th – 6-9pm
Unwell Bunny / Ed Bechervaise presents a retrospective back catalog of older and recent work in ‘back and forward’ showing a progression from street to gallery setting over a number of years.

Emerging from the Adelaide 90’s graffiti, Ed has chipped away making a name for himself in the urban contemporary art scene in Melbourne and further abroad showing work in Amsterdam, New York and Paris.

Ed studied studio arts in Adelaide and graphic and conceptual study in Melbourne. Over the years of practice his work has moved into a figurative and abstract sensibility, observing and deconstructing still life, figurative and facial portraiture, landscapes, and subconscious memory. Through bold striking and juxtaposing colour, Ed captures his observations with emotive feeling, creating compositions that generate a sense of nostalgia, and fluid memory.

In this body of work Ed hopes to recreate these memories through installation, and spacial curation. Showing works from multiple themed shows over the years, that link together to become one longer broader narrative. Ed demonstrates influence, observation, and change through time. A collection of experiences that are a summery of seeing the world through fragments of passion about place, person, environment, and feeling.

The exhibition runs from Tuesday 15th – Sunday 20th January 2019, for all enquiries please contact the Gallery Manager Ariana – info@bsidegallery.com

Caper

Caper has been an active street artist for over 12 years, creating illustrations and paintings that parody mass media and popular culture. His use of multi-layered imagery in his works at times appear idiosyncratic and quirky, whilst acting as typical by-products of American superabundance and marketing.
Caper’s works are saturated with mental inertia, cliches and bad jokes, and by their nature question the coerciveness of the superficial.

Evil Keanevil

Evil Keanevil’s work is a dynamic and bold exploration of entropy and deconstruction of reality. Pop culture icons, as well as original characters are deconstructed to reveal their core components, usually by liquefying or melting the subject.
Questions and themes have risen through the meltingly matter, bubbling through the muck and surfacing in the paintings themselves – which components can be stripped away, and by what measure before the subject becomes unrecognisable? When the subject is melted down, is it their perception of reality being manipulated, or the viewer’s?

Flip the Script: a lesson in modern calligraphy

‘Flip the Script’ brings together a stellar line up of artists both local and international specialising in the medium of modern calligraphy, or ‘calligraffiti’ as it is known in the realms of urban art.

Featuring works by Said DokinsChaz Bojorquez, Mayonaize, FroskeyoHegira ScripturesSicoerCreepy Mouse, Siege One, Chamula Cruz & Kmis3

Opening of ‘Flip the Script: a lesson in modern calligraphy’ from 6pm Friday 14th of December, proudly supported by the legends at Young Henrys!

Tuyuloveme Debut Australian Solo Exhibition

NOTHING BUT LOVE

“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.

Unwell Bunny – The Mountains We Climb

Ed Bechervaise –
Unwell Bunny 2018

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.
