Thanks to Perfekt World, I was recently invited to Vienna, Austria to live and work in the Museums Quartier as part of their residency program.
We produced a screenprint with local print makers, opened a solo exhibition of original works and painted three walls. Massive thanks to Perfekt World for hosting me, Inoperable Gallery and locals Knarf, Fresh Max and Mafia for the walls and everyone else I met along the way.
View all of the artworks here.
Opening: Samstag 22.3.2014, 19:00 – 22:00 PERFEKT BOX, MQ, Electric Avenue, Museumsplatz 1, 1070 Wien, Austria
PERFEKT WORLD is proud to invite the Sydney based artist NUMSKULL to work and live in Vienna for a month. He will participate at the Artist-in-Residence program of quartier21 in March and rounds his stay off with an exhibition at art space PERFEKT BOX.
„BUST!“ explores the artists‘ fascination of the human obsession with beauty and the everyday struggle to keep up appearance. He finds the oddity in human relationships and interaction. From the simplest of personality quirks to the boldest of personality statements. Numskull uses bold, colourful and abstract like forms to create statuesque like figures that project a composite idea of us as people and how we might see each other.

In December last year I was invited to Paris by Be Street Magazine to be a part of Cons Space. The third installment of an art, music and skateboarding event, in Montreuil.
Along with Ilk and L’Amour Supreme, we took over on old factory and painted a series of wooden canvases, walls and skate obstacles. All photos by ILK. See more on his website here.
I recently traveled up to Newcastle for the Hit The Bricks festival, where I worked with the Newcastle Art Gallery to create a mural that presents a positive message to the community. The gallery has (and still is) been through a handful of ups and downs recently, so I tried to paint an artwork that encourages present/positive thinking.

As one part of The Hours, in between organizing and getting things done for the Wonderwalls Festival, myself, Roachi and Wonderlust managed to power through the rain and paint this font wall in Wollongong. Thanks to Chris for the photos.
In collaboration with Mild Manners and iAM Projects, I painted over 70 rock formations down by the river at the old Gasworks in Brisbane.
