Animal Conclave exhibition by Meet Tyrone, SMC & Striker

Following on from my last post, Meet Tyrone will be part of a group exhibition titled "Animal Conclave", opening this Thursday evening (18th Oct) at Blank Space Gallery in Surry Hills. On display will be new works based on "Animals
in 3D", (the theme of Meet Tyrone's current season tees & hoodies). I'm really looking forward to seeing more of Bill Chen's artworks. He combines his talents as a 3D animator, graphic designer & artist to produce captivating three-dimensional artworks such as the one featured on the flyer above.

Meet Tyrone will be joined by SMC and Striker - the three independent artists collaborating to fuse a rustic earthy theme with street style.

I haven't yet seen the work of SMC and Striker, but the exhibition info describes them as follows:
"SMC is a self-taught artist who uses character based styles & images, concentrating on simple black definite lines & a minimal colour palette...
His influences include 60's comics, cubism & Japanese pop art."
"Like his squid brethren that hide amongst the rocks of the ocean, 'Striker' hides amongst the citizens of the city... Half man, half squid, 'Strikers' images are on the darker side of the ocean."

The exhibition runs from Thursday 18th - Wednesday 24th October. I'll look forward hearing your comments!
