Grooves, Glitch, Dubstep, Electro, Bass, Hip-Hop, Funk, and Mind-blowing creative talent for a visual and auditory sensory overload of awesomeness!!

Headliners for the night include Melbourne’s DJ KUYA who has proven to be one ofAustraliaʼs most innovative and original DJs, supporting some of the music industries biggest names like Public Enemy and DJ Krush. To date Kuya has won 3 State DMC Titles (1998-2000) along with the Australian ITF DJ Title in 1999.

The night will include some of our street artists going head to head to create amazing one off pieces inspired by the music. Paper and markers will also be available for a huge public collaboration!
This event is about getting all our hands dirty with paint and fun to mash together music and art in a way that’s never been done before in our fine city…

All proceeds go toward the completion of our sustainable healthcare centre in Datam, India (or providing the local village with wells to save lives if the current drought situation gets any more dire!) www.th.org.au

Bill Henson Inspiration

So, I went to see the new Bill Henson exhibition on Friday and was surprised by how impressed I was.

I guess I had been expecting to show up and just see a bunch of photographs and was confronted with amazing works of art!

Various people have said similar things about his work and I never quite believed it, but in this case, seeing is believing. I can well understand why they sell for $30,000 (yes, 30k) each.

I don’t know my art well enough to name names, but the images have the same feeling to them as works of the old (dead) master painters.

So, this inspired me to play around more with lighting, i.e. experiment :)

Of course, then we went to have a sandwich and there in the deli was the Herald Sun with an article claiming that there were images of under age children in sexual poses. Obviously some drunk reviewer spent time on the company clock in the red light district instead of at the gallery. (Actually, I’m yet to find out where Melbourne’s red light district is, if it even has one). Reading stupid reviews like that makes me want to scream. Geezzz!

Go see it :)
