A Filthy Art Opening by Feck:art

image

Melbourne Fringe is back and I’m excited to say that i’ll be taking part in it this year in an erotic art exhibition by Feck:Art. I’ve previously participated as a performance artist and a volunteer but this is the first Fringe that my illustration has made an appearance *squeal*. Here are some sneak peeks of my work that I’ve uploaded on my Instagram (@ serenekitchen).

YOU CAN WEAR MY STUFFS NOW! - Wear Art Thou Exhibition

image

Offically running for 10 working days is one of my favourite exhibition so far, Wear Art Thou at No Vacancy. Its sponsored by Red bubble (Click here for pictures of the opening night) who collaborated with Illustrators Australia to create a unique exhibition of Arty Shirts! First of all, hello again to the peeps I met during the opening and apologies if I startled you…I just get very excited about meeting new artists and art lovers *pokes fingers together*

Look at the girls enjoying their tea on American Apparel

 As mentioned on the flyer, it was an exhibition with shirts as the canvas but that wasn’t all. Red Bubble also exhibited the art on other merchandise such as metal sheets, canvas, totes, smart phone covers and pillow cases. I reckon that the best part of the whole exhibition is that you can touch and feel the art. Here is Peek-a-knit on a pillow case, I was really shocked to see it there as it wasn’t part of my submission.

Give me some sugar <3

gaHHHH!!!! we need to escape from this pillow!

*suggestion: you can get some marker pens and colour the girls in.

The layout of the entire exhibition was extremely creative in using No Vacancy’s massive cavern space. Red bubble also provided some laptops so that the public can shop the art.

So…If you are stuck on what to do this Sunday in Melbourne, here is my itinerary for you:

  • Have a quick African coffee break at Plantation
  • head to No Vacancy to see the art and maybe own some ;) ( it ends at 5pm)
  • Practise your Spanish at the Mexican Festival on Fed square
  • End with some kitty cuddles at the cat cafe on Queen st/opps Vic market. I’m not choosing sides but have you seen how cool cats are with the viral bicycle riding cat or the mountain climbing cat??? Just saying~

Art in Progress / Mediums Present: Ink, Graphite and Photoshop

I recently read this funny article about Matthew McConagheajdhfkjashd being the new Johnny Depp but it brings to mind how Bad Projects can really affect the appearance of any creative no? If you are wondering why I brought up Matthew McCongakjhsdfukhas is because I was so enthralled by the True Detective Opening sequence use of double exposure (hence the first image) and obviously his acting!

Anyway I’m thinking about going Big for the next work of images which is going to be funnily enough, very covered up to exaggerate sexuality and arousal. Weird how the mind always want what it can’t have.

Life is long - Matt Jackson

The back story: I recently attended an amazing event held by theloop and met so many Creatives from all walks of life. Matt Jackson, a poet (amongst other things), was a mentor there and said that the worse advice given to him was that “life is short”. He then told us a poem about how life is long because it is the only life you know. This saying runs so similar to what people would say to each other during Chinese New Year - May your life be long and prosperous!

So how do you want to live your life? Long or Short? I still can’t decide

Currawong …


Animalicious: the wonderful thing about winter is that all the big black birds come out and line dead branches with amazing silhouettes. My new favourite so far is the currawong. They gather in large numbers at native gumtree wilderness but are becoming more common in suburbia. The curvature of their beaks and slender necks puts them apart from the broader bodied magpies and ravens. Oh yeah, do you know that their name is onomatopoeic?

Fresh Doodle!

The hoarder in me can’t seem to get rid of all these art invitations and postcards because God damn, the quality these printed cards have is crazy. By sheer laziness of trying to be productive but in the end just messing about with my sharpie, I somehow managed to get 2 doodlings! This is some low level graffiti yo!

Fresh Art: Brrrrrrr! You know it’s cold when you have steam coming off you when you are cycling in the morning fog. Wearing knits of any sort has become a treasured, smelly survival item! Unfortunately most of them go through the wears and tears of any tomboy so we must be resourceful in patching things in the most creative way.

The sewer girls and their captured avian friends are here to help out once again, using their hair to weave back the holes in your pockets in Pocket Knits. In Peek-a-knit they some how managed to tangle themselves up in a new project. Oh no…

I’m also excited to announce that I have a red bubble account now with these illustrations for sale there! Please check it out and support a fellow artist here:
