Metal Artspace, neighbours to Method and Manners Studio on Upper Queen St in Auckland, was transformed into a temporary gallery for EYESORE

Eyesore I, Metal Art Space, 2012

The original EYESORE series was first exhibited at Method & Manners gallery in 2012 in a customised pop-up exhibition space. Consisting of a series of now iconic illustrative works, the exhibition went beyond the traditional walls of the gallery, seeing them installed city-wide in select local businesses.

EYESORE is in many ways an experiment in traditional and non-traditional exhibition practices as a visual artist and some sweet pictures.
"The works in production are like stickers; they are lurid, heavy, candid, archetypal, graphic illustrations after the style of 80’s skate designs and psychedelic rock posters.
These works are a tribute to the imagery of alternative culture, the visual language of the underdogs and outsiders, gateway imagery, the rad shit"
