Apparition Media Present ‘Aberration’, Celebrating emerging Australian Artists
bella - June 26th, 2017
The striking work of Apparition Media’s artists has been featured on streets, walls and laneways around the country – and now the works of these emerging Australian artists are coming together for a one-night-only exhibition in a Melbourne laneway.
On 16 June in Rose Lane, Apparition Media will pay homage to the talented artists who have dazzled the masses with their hand-painted advertising murals.
Heralded as one of the world’s street art capitals, there are few things more quintessentially ‘Melbourne’ than the city’s streets, littered with creative so striking it stops even the most scrupulous art connoisseurs in their tracks.
Recognising the potential for art to capture and captivate the minds of passers-by, Apparition Media have, since 2014, placed hand-painted advertising murals which fit seamlessly with the street scenery throughout Melbourne, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane.
Since the start-up’s inception, Apparition Media has engaged the services of more than 30 artists, providing a paid platform where they can share their talents with a wider audience, invoking local and international acclaim.
“This isn’t about Apparition Media, it’s about celebrating the artists who deserve recognition in their own right”, says Apparition Media co-founder Tyson Hunter, about the Aberration exhibition.
“We have worked with some of the best artists in Australia and arguably, the world. With backgrounds in Fine Art, Modern Art, Street Art and some being self-taught, each artist brings a unique style – an awe-inspiring magnetism- which allows each work of art to turn heads”.
The exhibition is open to the public for one evening only and will feature pieces from prominent Australian artists including Sam Yong, Jason Parker, Christian Vine, Nicole Evans and more. Exhibited artworks will be available for purchase on the night.
The exhibition coincides with the unveiling of the Spider-Man: Homecoming mural in Melbourne Central’s Knox Lane. The piece, painted by Apparition Media and designed by Sam Yong, was commissioned by Sony Pictures.
