Melbourne based artist Daniel Agdag will tell you that he makes things out of cardboard. This declaration in no way illuminates the delicate form and eccentric narrative of his work.he work is created entirely from the unassuming medium of cardboard and glue. To say he pushes the medium to its limits is an understatement. His industrial imaginings are meticulously executed, forming delicate, alluring and often hypnotically complex sculptures. A process he describes as ‘sketching with cardboard’, as they are created intuitively by hand without detailed plans or drawings.
Samuel Rodriguez is an artist who works in several mediums including design, walls, paintings and drawing. Rodriguez was self-taught for a number of years through his experience as a graffiti artist until he later received a Bachelor in Fine Arts from California College of the Arts. Rodriguez re-constructs moments through a mix of figurative and abstract work. He has a strong interest in topographical portraiture that is inspired by social, historic, and cultural hybridity.
