I’m as happy as a kid in a candy store – Today I went and picked up a new print by RONE that I was lucky enough to get my hands on from his latest show Darkest before the dawn, held at White Walls Gallery in San Fran.

Bridget is a 50x70cm, 10 layer screen print from a limited run of 60 – I missed out on getting hold of one of his prints at his last Melbourne show, even with going to the opening and all, so I’m pretty excited to have one this time round.

A friend of mine bought one of my latest orchid paintings the same day I put my name on the waitlist for one of these babies, so it worked out as a really good trade – Love being able to buy new artwork from the proceeds of artwork sold.  Win!!!

A couple of pics of Rone’s girls on the Everfresh wall on Rose street – They’re the stencils featured in his last show at Backwoods Gallery L’inconnue de la rue (The unknown girl of the street).

Its nice to be able to see them when I venture up Brunswick street now the show is well over and down. I think they’re just gorgeous.

Hey gorgeous

So I may have given d a bit of a william present this Christmas – But how could I resist when this lovely lady appeared in my inbox a couple a weeks ago saying she was available and in very limited supply….

Masked Clara in orange by Rone is from an edition of 9, Hand screen-printed on dutch etching paper.  All prints have small imperfections, making each print unique.

Rone is part of the Everfresh collective, who’s art can be found posted on walls around Melbourne – I’ve been coming across a lot of his posters on my journeys over to Fitzroy and Collingwood this year, so was super stoked to get my mitts on one of his gorgeous girls for our walls at home!

More of Rones work can be found on his webpage : http://r-o-n-e.com/ or at everfresh : http://www.everfreshstudio.com/

So the last post I put up with images of my UV stencils fully reminded me of a similar shade of blue acrylic I saw recently when I visited Backwoods Gallery over in Collingwood for their KAMI and SASU exhibition entitled “OMNI”.

Husband and wife, KAMI and SASU create a constantly evolving visual dialogue that expresses their world and hopes for the future. Renowned for their giant collaborative Zen pop murals, KAMI and SASU’s works combine elegant geometry with ebullient, uplifting colours.

I find it fully inspiring that this talented duo manage to do incredible things like this with a young toddler of their own in tow.   …I had Tui w me when we visited Backwoods and she hooned around the space, which is big and echoed with her footsteps and squeals. It has this wonderful warehouse/loft feel to the gallery, and I will def. be heading back there to check upcoming exhibitions in the future, now that I know where to find it!

*swoon* I love the Omni print they released, above. Its an edition of 50 and is available through nice produce http://niceproduce.com/kami+and+sasu/1104 …. Wish I had one of these for my bedroom wall!

OMNI exhibition at Backwoods ran from Friday the 19th of November until Saturday the 4th December. For more info on past exhibitions, and to see whats coming up at Backwoods check out their page here : http://www.backwoodsgallery.com/
