Astral Expressionism is a meeting of creative minds. Rooted and fixated in the rebellion of Hip Hop, Stiles Be x Inkswel meld the worlds of Improvised art and live remix. Stiles Be is an abstract expressionist visual artist. Inkswel is a world-renowned music producer and DJ.
In this live remix project, Stiles Be paints 100 record covers, as Inkswel creates and records a live remix album of past work- unique and new creations formed by an improvised pace following the brush strokes, nuances, and free-form painting of Stiles Be.
All ticket holders will gain ownership of a piece of this in the form of live art x audio recording on a hand-numbered limited edition vinyl release, with a 1/100 original portion of the artwork as the cover.
Astral Expressionism has a catered ticket option, with our good friends Pony and Cole providing a 'Burger Box' consisting of a delicious handmade burger and chips (Beef, Chicken, and Vegan available).
There will also be a bar on the night with drinks available for purchase.
This event is supported by the City of Charles Sturt.
Presented by: Stiles Be
Stiles Be is an interdisciplinary artist working across painting, works on paper and repurposed textiles. His practice draws on his background in street art, music, fashion, and graphic design, steeped in the dynamic expression of style attendant in the exchange, practices, beliefs and values of inhabiting urban spaces.
Working primarily on canvas, his recent compositions have been abstract explorations of the relationship between the unconscious and neuroscience in monochromatic and tonally muted colours.
Variously scaled compositions in a range of materials – including acrylic and aerosol paint, both dabbed and sprayed – invoke the fluidity and shifting planes of internal worlds and the grit and cool tonal palette of urban life.
Stiles Be lives in Tarntanyangga-Adelaide.
