Deb’s weapons of choice are spray cans and acrylics, and she’s backed by a whole mess of talent! Her pin-up style is instantly recognisable, and you can catch her work on walls around the world. Not to mention that this big hearted lass has been doing some stellar charity work of late.
Deb has also worked with some amazing clients such as Oxfam, Wheels and Doll baby, T-world, Any Forty, and T-Bar. This super talented chicka is flying away to San Francisco in 2013 and we just know she is gonna turn heads in the most amazing way!
Hail hail rock’n’roll! Issue 8 of Nothing to Nobody is here – Hurrah! Not only are we looking lush but we have a cavalcade of amazing art blast to keep you inspired, delighted and de-lovely. This issue features the wonderful art of Matt Linares and Stormie Mills, low brow goodness from Eric ‘eye ball’ Richardson, Melbourne’s own Jack Douglas, Swiss graff wranglers – Nevercrew, we check out Japanese based roller derby league – the Kokeshi Roller Dolls, photography by Carine Thevenau, play creatively with Illustration Buzz, have a slice of cheeky cartoon and animated goodness from David Chung, and fall in love with the art of Paul Barnes… plus there’s more!!
Hold the phone – we are in love! If seeing is believing then the amazingly detailed, beautifully rendered, absolute cheekiness of Russian artist Sergey Tyukanov will be sure to satisfy. With little cities sprouting from the backs of all sorts of creatures from Rhinos to fishes, pirate fashion for cats and a Pandora’s Box of other imaginative goodness springing from his mind. His website is absolutely brilliant – and exhibits his art in his own museum. We simply must stop gushing but we can’t! Check out his site if you know what’s good for you – you’ll be glad you did!
Today Melbourne turned on the charm like a swathy pirate woo’ing fair maidens. This made it very difficult to stay faithful to my laptop, but with perseverance, and an ice cold bottle of TsingTao, I got there. This then led me on my internet wanderings to meet with glee the illustration work of Oliver Dominguez. The images below are taken from his series ‘The History of Miami’, and you have to admit they’re perfect for this kind of balmy spring weather with their sea-scape inspired goodness. Oliver also has some super cool packages of his work available on his website, or if your feeling a bit talkative send him an email. Deets below…
It’s fair to say I’ve seen a few art shows in my time, and each time I attend an exhibition I am continuously astounded by the sheer amount of tenet we have here in our own backyards. Yet nothing could have prepared me for the awesome that awaited me last night when I went to the opening of the Jae Copp show, My Illusions Architect, at the Gorker Gallery in Fitzroy.
Not only is the detail in the pieces phenomenal, with fine lines and organic styles running through each piece, but each work has been stitched together from a number of panels. I asked Jae about this and he said that he had to draw each panel first and then stitch them together. Wha?! Crazy good. The walls of the space have also had hand stitched hessian attached to them so the whole space is a reflection of the show. I took a few images with my trusty crap camera, but you should definitely get on over to the Gorker and check the show out before it closes.
