Sherrie Wilson Projects just finished working on a killer new large-scale mural project with Dutch Art dream team, TELMOMIEL. The street art duo spent a week in Western Australia in the city of Perth creating the piece of what appears to be a young boy reading with his grandfather.
Mark Whalen is an Australian born, Los Angeles based artist. Whalen expresses satirical social narratives in seemingly universal situations. The most recent series of sculptural works continues his study into the complexities of displacement and positioning that we, as both individuals and a species, experience through our evolutionary trajectory. Construction netting captures, cordons and compartmentalizes our distinctive characteristics as they shift under the weight of societal pressure through this ever-changing global economy.
Dutch artist Amok Island recently completed one of Australia’s largest murals, spanning 25m high x 162m long, on three grain silos in Ravensthorpe, Western Australia. The mural entitled ‘Six stages of Banksia baxteri’ took 31 days to paint and each side of a silo depicts the different stages of the flowering cycle of this iconic Australian Banksia flower, only found in this area of Western Australia. From flower buds, to full bloom; to seedpods developing, drying out and opening. The animals portrayed in the mural are the species’ main pollinators; the Honey Possum and New Holland Honey eater.
The artwork encircles the three silo’s infinitely; the final silo marks the beginning once again, of the first, making a connection with the cycle of the seasons and grain farming processes the area is known for.
Georgia Hill is an illustrator and artist, specialising in hand drawn type based artworks that combine bold, monochromatic textures and lettering within experimental compositions.
Using a range of mediums, her focus lies in generating deliberately open ended letter based artworks that can be read in terms of connections and relationships, time, place and community. These impressions are all shaped by the viewers own personal experiences, creating a moment of reflection in these heavily detailed, often excessive compositions.
Muralist Smug One recently completed a brilliant new piece in Melbourne entitled “Otters.” The Aussie street artist used his incredible rendering techniques to create a hyperrealistic image that “cleaned up” a wall underneath which was disrespected and created much online controversy.
