WONDERWALLS – WOLLONGONG 2013

Wonderwalls went down again this year and l was lucky enough to make the trip up to paint.
Was great to catch up with a whole bunch of good people and paint a wall with Roach & Numskull. We had sunshine, rain, terrible karaoke, rain, beers and a bit more rain. Good times all round!

Great to see festivals like this getting done in Australia. Huge thanks to all those who made the effort to make it happen. Big cheers to The Opening Hours and Verb syndicate & IRONLAK.

Finished photo’s by occasionallygood. Some great photos on occasionally good of other walls as well, if you haven’t seen Askew’s wall then check it out.

Few of my random photos from the weekend as well, thanks all!

A site specific mural of SF’s very interesting history. Peace.

Meggs x 1xRUN “Fortune..” Print

Meggs x 1xRUN recent print release “Fortune Favours the Bold” now online.
2 days remaining to purchase one of the last 13 prints available on the 1xRun site here:

This artwork is from Meggs’ April ‘Heavenly Creatures’ solo show @ Thinkspace Gallery in LA:

Meggs: “This piece was created in March 2013, the original was 46×46” canvas painted with acrylics & aerosol. It was based off of another piece I did, which was a reference to a Nirvana song ‘Frances Farmer will have her revenge on Seattle’.  Frances Farmer – the 1930-40’s Hollywood actress who struggled with alcoholism and was eventually admitted to a mental hospital. She was somewhat of a victim of Hollywood stardom lifestyle which was a reference to the show being in Culver City LA and to my recent move here. The piece depicts the femme fatal in her classic passive ‘headshot’ pose, but as somewhat of a gypsy, juxtaposed against a skull and crystal ball to represent uncertainty and the duality of “fortune”.

MEGGS – ARCH ANGELS – WHITEWALLS GALLERY SF

On August 17 my latest solo show, Arch:Angels, opened at WhiteWalls Gallery in San Francisco.
Thanks to all who came through to show their support opening night, and to the gallery crew for hustling hard with me during install to make this show possible. TLTV for life!

Arch:Angels is part exploration, part celebration and part personal release about the roles of both individual and the state in the currently uncertain social climate and economy of both America & Australia. This new body of work, produced during Meggs’ (currently un-official) relocation from his home-town of Melbourne (Australia) to the West Coast of America, continues his exploration and fascination with the role of super powers, heroes and duality.

“During the time of creating this work I have been dealing with a lot of questions about place relocation, the pros vs cons and the inevitable issues that one faces whilst dealing with beauracracy like Immigration. It raises questions of borders, security and place in general, having to consider when change is necessary and where this change might lead you. It’s an interesting time in social trend where both American & Australian policy and politics and border security is under crises and scrutiny. Interestingly its also a time when pop-culture fascination with the role of heroes, particularly that of classic comic book super heroes is on the rise. Citizenship and security is designed to protect us, but at what point is that too inhibitive of our creative freedom and experiences.”

Part reference to fictional mythological and pop-culture heroism, part reference to current social climate, Arch:Angels implies an ideological fall from grace and looming worldwide shifts of power & state. The idea of the hero, especially the inner torment they face, has always been an underlying inspiration and theme in Meggs’ work. Along with exploring the ideals of traditional morals and gender roles in mythology and pop-culture. “This body of work is a very literal reaction for me to everything thats been on my mind these past few months and directly references my comic book influences and exploring identity issues.”

In Arch:Angels Meggs re-interprets, re-mixes and collages several of his favourite comic book frames and heroic characters, juxtaposing them with classically emotive gestures and iconic symbols such as circles, hands and roses. Both as a homage and nostalgic obsession to the archetypes and artwork which has inspired Meggs since Childhood, when his fascination with the role of masculinity and heroes began in the pages of Phantom comics, superhero cartoons and 1980′s sci-fi fiction. Creating a mixture of solid forms and painterly abstraction, iconic heros, depicted in moments of vulnerability or distress, Meggs creates dramatic composition, dynamic textures which imply both aggressive movement & passive emotion. A continual visual search for that dial balance in life of order vs chaos.

Alice Dreamtime Wall

July I spent a few weeks in Alice painting a 50m wall, Many thanks to Ironlak for the paint sponsorship. Thanks to Matty Day for organising and painting on this massive project, It was an amazing experience on many levels, especially to work along side local painter Phil McCormack.

Initially we were going to avoid the dreamtime stories sowe didnt step on any toes, but Phil was the spiritual guide and ended up including a special Echidna at the request of local painter Margaret Scobie to honour her Dreaming animal. Many thanks to the mayor for signing off the permit so quickly, to Phil’s teenage nephew Jessy for painting the volcano, to Lister for the iphone-arang concept, to kirst-eye for the mega-fauna giant aussie dinosaur animal concept, and to Owen Coles of Yeperenye for the funding. More photos etc on www.makatron.com
