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.”

————————————————————————
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.

Join us for the opening of ‘Nothing But Love’ from 6-9pm on Friday 26th October at BSIDE Gallery proudly supported IronlakYoung HenrysRoyal Jamaican Ginger BeerMortimers Orchard at Taste LondonEasey’sFazzari MultimediaNathan CtcDodgy Paper & Arterior Australia!

Under the Seed Launch

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:

Mitch Walder – Ruskidd – DNART – Kenz – Poise – Le Grizz – Frosk – Junky Projects – Stopem – Crisis – Ohnoes – Chehehe – Silk Roy – Facter – Zoe Mullins

Join us for the opening of Sprung! on the last day of winter, Friday the 31st of August from 6-9pm with drinks supplied by the lovely folks at Young Henrys!

‘Adherence’, a solo exhibition by Dose

‘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.

Opening Friday 22nd June 6-9pm, BSIDE Gallery, proudly supported by Young HenrysIronlakUnion HeightsBoywolfDodgy Paper & Rush Photography

Exhibition open for viewing Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th of June

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’.

ROA – Transit Exhibition Berlin

We caught up with a couple of friends (Jess & Terissa), who were helping out at Skalitzers Contemporary Art for the first solo show in Berlin by internationally acclaimed Belgian artist ROA.

“ROA is famous for his large-scale depictions of animals on city walls around the world, ROA brings the creatures which inhabit the fringes of human society back to the metropolis to expose the natural beauty in the cycle of life and death.”

ROA is a brilliant street artist from Ghent, Belgium and is renowned for his giant black and white animal pieces around the city streets and buildings of the world. Today, Roa’s artwork is seen from New York to Berlin and Warsaw to Paris. His style is well suited to the semi derilict buildings and structures you can see his ‘bigger than life’ work on and I’m really impressed with him pushing the envelope in the street art scene.

The night before we hit up my mates Restaurant / Bar Maria Peligro in Kreuzberg for a double denim party. Was a great evening and ended up in McDonalds drinking beers and eating cheeseburgers in the wee hours of the morning.
