This series was made in collaboration with the founders of Kontraband Studios, Toowoomba, Twolaks and Mick Archibald. For the purpose of a group show, Dimwits, at No Comply Gallery Toowoomba, I have decorated 14 slipcast, glazed porcelain cans with designs from Twolaks and Archibald (7 cans each).
A sign-writer by trade, Twolaks’ recent work is rediscovering his love of type and is a parallel to his graffiti based practice outside of the gallery space.
Archilbald’s background in screen-printing and graphic design has moulded his process driven creative practice. His latest works are a balance of graffiti and design, in particular the clinical way in which those art forms overlap.
