East London wall

I recently finished a nice little wall in East London. The cops are on high alert here and walls including commissioned pieces are getting buffed in an instant. They are trying to make London into a sterile boring (safe) city. Not if I can help it! Stay tuned for more paint on walls…

Reka: OPEN STUDIO – Review

Last week hundreds of people came down to Backwoods Gallery to see off one of Melbourne’s most prolific street artists, buy cialis James Reka. Before moving to Europe next month, nurse he put on a pop up show that tied together all of the loose ends of his decade long career. Featuring a final fresh body of exhibited work alongside selected works from 2004 to 2006, fans came down in hordes to pay their final respects to one of Melbourne’s finest.

The new body of work was exclusively painted on rusted found objects such as spray cans, corrugated sheet metal and antique gold-mining pans that were found walking the train lines and salvaged from abandoned warehouses. Referencing his beginnings as a graffiti artist, the walls were strewn with scrunched butchers paper to create texture and act as an urban framework for the works. It was a process-driven concept, with Reka organically using every aspect of the spray cans to create artworks, from turning the paper labels into collages to painting the shell of the can itself.

In addition to this new body of work, Reka pulled a large collection of old works out of the vault from some of his original shows in the early to mid 2000s. Many of these canvases haven’t been seen for six or seven years and produced a huge, esteeming response from the crowd. Displaying works that have been painted over a decade apart, the audience could see Reka’s transformation from being known as having the strongest graffiti inspired line-work in Australia to his now renowned free-form canvases. Whether it is one of his iconic characters from the early 2000s or an incredibly intricate new work, Reka’s style is revered within the community and has continues to influence younger artists. There is no doubt it is commendable to already have such a strong retrospective of work and such a huge turn out of admirers in what is guaranteed to be a long and illustrious career.

Australia is losing one of their best to the bright lights and bigger walls of Europe, but there is no doubt that Reka’s legacy will continue both on the laneway and gallery walls for years to come. Gone, but not forgotten.

Kid Zoom x Reka

After battling the elements for over a week, doctor Im happy to announce that I Just finished this collaborative wall with Kid Zoom in Prahran, Melbourne.
We decided to collaborate on a large side profile of one of my characters. Kid Zoom worked on the eye mask and the top row of the teeth, while I worked on the rest of the face. I’m amazed that the contrast of styles really compliment each other. – Reka

Everfresh NGV Studio- Closing Event

Thanks to all that made it to our closing event at the NGV Studio on friday night.
Sorry to all those who got stuck in cold outside, Fed Square red tape meant we had a seriously strict capacity limit. Turns out we can pull a bigger crowd then the upstairs masters exhibitions- ha.

Also a big thanks to the NGV staff, the caterers and Beer Deluxe.

I really didn’t think we could pull this off in the time frame we were given (3 weeks notice) but some how it all came together at the last moment. We were honoured to be given this opportunity and we really don’t know how we are going to top it, but who knows what’s next…
