I created this series of prints inspired by 70s wallpaper. The use of geometric forms that create patters has interested me as a pathway to an experience both transcendental and emotive. The series, Systems, hovers between minimalism, abstraction, geometry, stasis and dynamism, while its visual energy of sensuous, buoyant hues makes an instant impact with a vivid sense of spatial illusion. Why the 70s? Because without them, I wouldn’t be here playing with colours.
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.
