Cornelious is doing some planning, trying to work out who he should dance his little plastic ass off to at Creamfields…read on to find out how you can be there for FREE…
Try to imagine a your favourite band holding a gig without a piece of poster art or a political movement trying to rally the masses without the special combination of image and text that print allows.
The history of the Modern Olympic Games can be told through the posters used to advertise and inspire people. The technology has changed and the RISO Machine has its limitations but it’s those limits that make the creative possibilities all the more exciting.
Love is My Velocity have teamed up with BENCHPRESS, a small studio established by local creative types Claire Wohlnick, Daniel Bourke and James Vinciguerra. This collaboration has produced the first edition of RISO – Limited Edition Poster Publication.
Keeping the exclusive theme going LIMV is launching the publication at a private party in Northbridge. If you want to go it’ll cost you $15 and you will get a copy of RISO.
We’ve been giving you little bite size morsels from the Issue Nine DVD, but just in case you want to catch up with all the snippets, here’s a little tasting plate for you…all the Issue Nine bites in one bit!
So you like your coffee? You’ve got to have it. One in the morning when you wake up, another on the way to work or class oh that caffeine, how you love it! But ask yourself what has coffee ever done for art? Or for that matter what has it done to help people in real need?
Well, Now Coffee is inspiring a whole new range of art works and transforming BamBOO @ Luxe Bar into a gallery as contemporary artists and designers from Perth and beyond come together with local performers to present One Sugar to Go – an eclectic art exhibition with a difference.
Available for sale via auction, artworks utilising the medium of a take-away coffee cup have been contributed by creatives from Perth, the eastern states and as far away as Glasgow, Scotland. These normally throwaway items over have been reworked and transformed into art, promoting the themes of reuse, recycle and respect – with the proceeds from sale going to the Leukemia Foundation.
One sugar to go… the event set to put an ‘up the anti’ into ‘oxidant’ as a stellar line-up of DJ’s, VJ’’s, performance art and BMX demo riders combine to showcase a cross section of contemporary culture whilst engaging community support for those affected by cancer.
My art is…Cut and paste recontextualised madness with a tinge of social commentary, childish sketches with cute as bottom line, impressionistic landscapes with simplistic tones.
I use…Photoshop, google images, national geographic magazines, acrylic paint, canvases, MS Paint and photocopies, Ableton LIVE, instruments etc.
When I work I…Try to generate many ideas quickly and refines the pieces later. The original idea of a piece is usually stronger than over thinking, being anal or analytical. The present moment is powerful and we can capture originality by trusting in the now.
Perth’s not so bad because…Places are what you make them, geography is never to blame for your lot in life in democratic western societies. Perth is a creative hub with so much talent but not much appreciation due its conservative and consumerist majority. It gives to minority of creative folk something to inspire, rebel against and to comment on. We are small in numbers so we can keep our utopia to ourselves.
Over the next year I’m…Working on expanding and growing The Community. I am releasing a beat-tape called ‘Digerbodia’, in May, featuring remixes and beats using samples obtained and digerised whilst on a short trip to Cambodia. I am also releasing a full length album called ‘We are all related’ which was recorded in December 2009 with my sound engineer, Sibalance. Featuring composition played and written by me and overlayed with psyched out samples, hopefully released in August/September. I have recently moved my art stuff to a studio at my girlfriend’s parents house in the Swan Valley. I am also planning to embrace my cut and paste roots by designing more and launching a limited edition t shirt designs with help from the Elementree guys. Also I plan to make up more words as a part of my wordology project. More traveling sampology exploits during the Xmas holidays as well.
I think that…Creativity is a gateway to potentiality.

Kid Koala proudly presents The Slew Live. Six turntables plus Chris and Myles from Wolfmother on bass and drums. It’s rock turntablism like you’ve never seen it before.
It all started nearly five years ago when Kid Koala and Dynomite D were working together to create a soundtrack for a documentary, the pair were pushing into psych rock territory and and had Mario Caldato (Beastie Boys Producer) on board for the mix. By the time the documentary folded the pair were in too deep to let go so they teamed up with Chris Ross and Myles Heskett – the former rhythm section of Wolfmother – to form The Slew. This monster unit set out to put together a full-blown rock band experience to do justice to the material in a live setting.
Last October they dragged a wall of amps, six turntables, bass, drums and keyboards across America damaging the consciousnesses of rock heads and turntablists alike and now they’re heading to The Rosemount Hotel in North Perth to give you the same treatment.
The Slew bring attitude back to the turntable unlike anything you’ve ever heard. Check out the video at the bottom of this post for a taste. you can also click through to buy a ticket for the event for only $30.
