We first saw this unique artist’s work in the last Biennale of Sydney then again recently at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane. He combines a sublime mix of Buddhist iconography with pop culture references and is basically brilliant. He explores issues of identity, globalisation, hybridity and consumerism. We love that his artwork is so brave, yet gloriously colourful and bright.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
