Lyrics & Type Show

28 October 2009

While I was away Wooden Toy Quarterly held the Lyrics & Type exhibition in Melbourne. By all accounts it was a huge success with 300 or so people attending the opening, packing out Gorker Gallery and spilling onto the surrounding streets. I’m not at all surprised it was so popular considering the calibre of artists involved. I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peak at the work before I left OS and it’s so rad. I’m really humbled (and very happy) to be part of it all. Wooden Toy have also produced a limited edition zine to accompany the exhibition and showcase the artists and their work. It’s really beautiful and definitely worth checking out. You can do so at the Wooden Toy Shop where you can also view and purchase limited edition prints from the exhibition.

Here’s the piece I did for the show: “The Kids Are Losing Their Minds”, by The Ramones.

    Was in melbourne a few weeks ago for semi-permanent, and went to see the lyrics and type exhibition. It was just incredible, so many talented people!!! yours caught my eye immediately! for some reason my boyfriend and i left the exhibition empty handed, but the following day we came to our senses. He ended up buying timba’s print and i got yours! we live in adelaide, so we had to have it posted down, and it’s arrived just this morning. and i’m so happy!!! the colours are so fresh and your illustrations are clear and beautiful and have that young trendy rock n’ roll feel.
    We’re going to get it framed this afternoon, so i can put it up asap. thanks so much for your incredible talent 🙂
    keep it up,
    Erin

    Hey, thanks!
    So glad you like it. I was overseas and missed the show but I saw all the work and was totally blown away by the quality. So many rad artists exhibiting so many rad art works. Let’s hope there’s a Lyrics & Type 2 soon. (and that i’m in town for this one!)
    Thanks again!
    Rik
