In The Studio – Beastman

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yqoaVa-ETMEn5UWqRuhA6h6TngfpFSaKbeotn3ko_gg/edit

Sydney-based illustrator Brad Eastman, or better known by his street name ‘Beastman’, is a multidisciplinary artist from Sydney, Australia. His instantly recognisable style of illustration on his murals, artworks, and designs have brought him international acclaim which is slingshotting him through a super successful and prolific career.

This alias Beastman is not only a clever play on words from his real name, but also provides a suitable description of his strong illustration style. Influenced by the biodiversity, symbolism and design aesthetics behind nature’s repetitive geometric growth patterns and organic landscapes, Beastman’s paintings, digital illustration, commercial projects and public murals explore a unique visual language, depicting future environments of abstracted landscapes, potential new life forms and human intervention

In The Studio – Kaff-eine

Silo Art Trail Street Art Kaff-eine

Kaff-eine is an established Australian street and contemporary artist who has gained a strong following for her engaging illustrative freehand style, delicate linework, and quiet melancholic characters. She has painted public and private works in Australia, Germany, France, USA and the Philippines with a handful of successful solo and group exhibitions as well as having her hand in illustrating two children’s books.

In addition to her solo and independent projects, Kaff-eine recently co-founded ‘Cheeseagle‘, a creative collective who make art projects designed for exhibition and social impact which is making big moves nationally and internationally.  

Kaff has just spent the past two months in Silo Country (Aka – Rosebery) where she has been working on one of her largest canvases to date, adding a sixth silo to the Silo Art Trail. We managed to sneak in a few words with her while she was on site, to capture a glimpse into her latest project. Kaff has since completed the over-sized mural, and has been able to share some photos of the magic.

In The Studio – Nychos

Nychos Street Art Melbourne Image by Silke Lapina

This fortnight in the studio, we are incredibly stoked to be able to sit down with our international pal Nychos and catch up on his extremely busy life. For those that don’t yet know, Nychos has been making waves all over the world, expanding from his original studio in Vienna and onto the world circuit. San Francisco is now his new home (when he’s not travelling the world), where he has spent a little more than the past year living and breathing all forms of art and illustration, continuing on with his busy life.

Raised in a traditional Austrian hunting family, death and dissection were the daily business for Nychos. Blending morbid and dark themes with the colourful, hyper-loony aesthetics influenced by pop-culture and cartoons, Nychos has developed a unique style that he performs with powerhouse effect whether on the street or in the gallery.

Nychos often collaborates with the world’s most accomplished painters, making him one of the most noticeable breakout artists from the Austrian scene. His paintings and drawings have been exhibited in galleries worldwide, including ten solo exhibitions, one which we were lucky enough to host at the Juddy Roller Gallery earlier this year, as well as a four-story “Dissection of a Kangaroo” mural located in Collingwood, Melbourne.

In The Studio – Putos

Putos Melbourne Street Art

Putos has been a long-standing member of the Melbourne graf community as well as an active member of ACM (Art Crush Mob) who lives and breathes graf every second of the day. He can be found all throughout the suburbs of Melbourne, and we reckon it would be safe to say you can’t walk a full block without catching a piece of his work.

His work is incredibly eye-catching, combining traditional graffiti techniques with popping shape and colour, creating a style that is strikingly unique and definitely something he can call his own.  Putos is an expert with blends and tones, having the ability to create electric chaos that almost pops off the wall. His imagination helps create weird and wonderful compositions and imagery, that makes viewers to not always fully understand but most definitely appreciate.  Alright, enough small talk- let’s get chatting…

In The Studio – Welin

This fortnight we’re super psyched to sit down and chat with Danish Artist Welin, who has lately been lighting up walls all over the world.  Welin has the energy to burn and most certainly directs this into his lively mural work, fusing bright colours with contrasting tones to really make his work come to life, creating super dense pieces that completely absorb your eyes and attention.

Welin obviously also likes to have fun with his work, whether he’s painting celebrities like Action Bronson, including a self-portrait of himself into a wild wild west scene or turning ‘Otto’ from the Simpsons into a zombie, you can’t help but appreciate the kids work!

Welin came through Australia earlier in 2017 and we were lucky enough to include him into the Wall to Wall Festival lineup for 2017, as well as host him on a number of Melbourne projects allowing him to make the most of his trip. We also got the chance to sit down with him- let’s see what he has to say.

Weaving these all together in a one-man collaboration piece after piece sets Dvate apart from what you would expect to achieve with multiple artists.

In The Studio – Jason Parker

Jason Parker is an artist originally from New Zealand that luckily for us, now calls Melbourne home. Although Jason primarily works in oils, he can often be found using and incorporating mediums such as aerosol, acrylic, pen and watercolour into his mix. He’s an incredibly humble, soft spoken man who allows his artworks to speak volumes.

His figurative style whose subjects often occupy a space not completely of this world being a recurring narrative in a majority of Jason’s work. He has traditionally worked across canvas, but has since then started moving his work outdoors and onto the streets. It’s interesting to see him bring this energy, along with his melting pot of aesthetics and influences and see it brought to life on a wall or large scale surface.

In The Studio – Resio

Resio Street Art

Meet Resio. He is a promising street artist making his way through the Melbourne streets and graffiti scene one piece at a time. He’s a youthful dude with what seems like decades of experience and Juddy Roller has had the pleasure of working with him on a handful of projects now. This happy-go-lucky kinda guy is already painting with all the big names and not only is he keeping up, but also pushing through and making a name for himself.

His incredible talent is displayed through his incorporation of complex compositions, realistic imagery and masterful graf pieces. Weaving these all together in a one man collaboration piece after piece sets Resio apart from what you’d expect to achieve with multiple artists.

In The Studio – Makatron

Mike Makatron- The creative all rounder who works with an endless variety of mixed media on walls, canvas and paper as well as anything else he can get his hands on at the time. Although Mike is primarily known for being a painter and illustrator, every time we chat he always seems to have a new artistic adventure on the go.

As an active member of Everfresh Studio since 2006, Mike has exhibited extensively through Australia as well as been apart of group shows in Brazil, Japan, Miami and New York. He has also displayed his artworks within private and public collections locally and abroad, including acquisitions by the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.

His work is preoccupied with the interface between man, beast and machine. Presenting a visual riot that stimulates the eyes and mind. Mike’s art conveys an imperative message to those confined in the concrete jungle to stay connected to the animal within them that lives in the natural world.

In The Studio – Cam Scale

Cam Scale Interview Street Art Mural

Cam Scale is a Melbourne based artist whose practice extends from large scale mural-work and graffiti to digital and canvas based art. He works with several mediums but sticks mostly to aerosol, oil and acrylic.

Cam was born and bred in Sydney but has spent the past 10 years immersing himself within the Melbourne art and graf’ scene. He has since linked with Juddy Roller and we have had the pleasure of collaborating together on many successful occasions.

His work explores the complexities and characteristics of an individual or subject always capturing what surrounds him in a raw and emotive way as he combines contemporary art with a street based approach. His humble and friendly attitude makes him a highly likeable human, and his artwork only reinforces this. Let’s see what the man has to say.
