I’m loving the collages from Newcastle artist, musician and lawyer, Rod Smith. Fronting one of my favourite bands, Firekites, Smith spends his spare time collecting bits and pieces of inspiration to craft a visually compelling piece of modern art. The end result reflects an artist who understands colour and when to stop.
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.
