The word ‘original’ is frequently tossed around and incorrectly applied to stale, done-to-death creations, which are anything but. Thankfully, artists like Mexican-born Hugo Lugo can paint a truly innovative concept, and give the word meaning again. I’m gobsmacked by the simplicity and brilliance of his strangely surreal artwork.
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.
