Unit44 Gallery – INTO THE DARK – Newcastle UK

I am stoked to be included in Unit44′s INTO THE DARK group show, launching June 12th, The Victoria Tunnel, Newcastle.
This yearly event featuring the finest international artists and the most iconic forgotten locations and the line-up for this show is pretty incredible to say the least. – Meggs

Exhibition info:

“Inspired by the incredible project from New York we pay tribute to a slice of North East England history in the form of our Victoria Tunnel. Dating back to 1842 the tunnel facilitated the need to transport goods from one side of Newcastle to the other during a thriving industrial boom in the region. However it was during wartime that the tunnel found true providence and purpose. During the Second World War the tunnel was fitted out for use as an air raid shelter to protect those from falling shells. The structure would provide shelter for over 9,000 people at one time during times of fear and hardship.

Now the tunnels provide a completely unique backdrop and prologue to a new body of works from some of our favourite artists. Known for creating a story, a scenario, and true depiction of character we have chosen the true dream weavers to bring this show to life. We invite you to pay tribute to Industry, Resilience, and the Human Spirit in the face of dark times.”

This is the first time the space will have been used for an exhibition of this nature, with only twelve participants able to go ‘Into The Dark’ at any one time, we have limited thirty-minute slots on June 12th. Online tickets will be released twelve days before the event at twelve midday (June 12th).

New2 – In One Hand a Ghost, the Other an Atom. Dec 15

White Walls Presents:

In One Hand a Ghost, the Other an Atom A Solo Show by New2

White Walls is pleased to present In One Hand a Ghost, the Other an Atom a solo show featuring new works from Australian artist New2. The exhibition will feature between 16 and 24 pieces large-scale works made entirely from paper.

The opening reception will be Saturday, December 15th from 6-9 PM, and is free and open to the public for viewing through January 5th, 2013.

void(0)-1.jpeg

All the works of New2 are hand-cut layered paper

collages, crafted with even more detailed than the work New2 debuted in 941 Geary’s

showcase of the top contemporary Australian artists, Young and Free. With 28 years of

writing on trains and in the street, New2’s mastery is evident, with some pieces

displaying the artist’s more traditional lettering, while others break off into progressive

new forms. Paper is not a medium one normally associates with graffiti. New2’s

meticulously-layered collages push our standard conception of the art form. The bold

compositions take on a different shape depending on the angle they’re seen from, and the unexpected dips and valleys in the lightweight material creates a striking juxtaposition.

void(0).jpeg

New2 began painting in Melbourne Australia in the early 1980s. He is a founding

member of the Da Mad Artists (DMA) crew who were prominent figures in the Australian

train writing movement. He was part of the first generation of writers and street artists to

gain recognition outside of Australia. New2 is still writing on walls and also investigating

other areas of his creative field, utilizing paper collage, ceramic versions of his lettering,

and wooden sculptures. He has exhibited in both group and solo shows in Australia,

United States and Europe. Whilst his walls pieces are visually modern and progressive,

his work respects the ongoing tradition of letter writing.

Fred Fowler @ Backwoods this Friday

nurok_backwoods_studiovisit-16.jpeg

Fred Fowler is a Melbourne based contemporary artist with a background in street art and graffiti. After living in Paris and travelling throughout Europe for a year in 2009 – 2010, Fred returned to Melbourne to study at the Victorian College of the Arts, he is currently completing his second and final year of the Master of Contemporary Art degree under the supervision of Jon Cattapan. Decorating the Apocalypse is his third solo exhibition and is a culmination of work completed over the last four years.


Decorating the Apocalypse is a playful investigation of themes related to cultural identity. Images of masks and faces function as the primary signifiers in Fowler’ work. Through sculpture, painting and printmaking, he is questioning the ‘mythologies’ or artificial constructs surrounding issues of identity. Cheap, plastic, Chinese-manufactured toys are sourced locally before being deconstructed and re-configured, to finally emerge – through the ancient process of casting – as intricate, bronze masks. Kitsch wooden ‘primitive’ masks, found in flea markets in Paris and Melbourne, are methodically vandalized, painted and re-presented as cultural artifacts of contemporary society.
