Zawada @ PRISM LA - this Saturday 8th September
Posted By Kieran – 06.09.2012
In his second solo show at Los Angeles PRISM Gallery, Australia's own Jonathan Zawada presents 'Free Roam Above the Mist.' Centred arouns his incredible oil painting depictions of digital renders of the Elbe Sandstone Mountainscapes, the likes of Charles Saatchi, Larry Gagosian and Elton John (again), will no doubt be buying up large. One of the nicest guys around, it's always great to see fellow Australians doing amazing things overseas. No doubt a few people kicking themselves that they did'nt buy some of his work at his first solo show at Monster Children Gallery, Boolean Values, back in 2008! . Exhibition continues October 6th.
Los Angelenos, make sure to catch the Blank Tapes perform at the Satellite, Friday, May 31st, as they celebrate the release of their latest record, Vacation, which after having a listen to the groovy tunes makes me want to pack up the van and do just that. The evening also brings you sets from fellow favorites The Abigails and Jeffertitti's Nile.
A whopping $8 bones. Get at it.

Heaps of music, good films from Thomas Cmapbell, Taylor Stelle, Patrick Trefz and many more, all to be announced on the 30th of May.

The ourCASTE Quick Cuts series are a bi-monthly collaborative release from a community of enthusiasts interpreting the things they love through different mediums influenced by the sub-cultures that connect us all.
Visualising a story of places they've been, people they've met and experiences shared together, ourCASTE seek to be a curator of sorts to the youth and an outlet for those weird, left brain ideas to be projected to that otherwise wouldn't necisarily have a home for. The end goal aiming to be a series entirely created by contributors.
