If you’ve been wondering what Daimon Downey’s getting up to since he left Sneaky Sound System, he’s been making art. He teamed up with concept label Bay & Fyfe after the label’s owner Frith Hucks purchased a piece from Downey’s solo exhibition in New York late last year. Together they’ve created wearable art in the form of luxurious limited edition scarves. Drawing on a series of six paintings titled Pastel Zoo, Downey’s works transfer paint into print and play off the notion of life versus death and good versus evil. Each scarf comes in a run of 400, so grab one before they disappear.
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.
