Beyond the Light - Chinese Artist He Zige at 541 Art Space

The titles are as lyrical at the paintings and the opening as bold as the colours. He Zige and his undeniably beautiful exhibition of paintings curated by Vivien Jiang has landed and launched at 541 Art Space Sydney in a Gala style opening. One could see the paintings as abstract expressionist vision however it would seem they are an East-West expression of poetic form. If you love John Olsen or Luke Sciberras work you will probably enjoy this show of painterly cross currents. It's on right now at 541artspace until the 9th of July, so be quick

“What is light? When light shines into reality, there comes colour, when it shines into the heart, therecomes hope. Light is like a belief that can sanctify life. Beyond the Light refers to an existing supreme and abstract state that transcends sanctification and solemnisation” He Zige

Winter Styling - East Sydney Night

Loved this look I spotted last night going from one photography show at Disorder Gallery, on my way to ACP in Foley street. The three of us were caught at the lights which gave me the opportunity to make this shot - unfortunately I had the 'bright' gallery settings still set so this shot was a bit under and umm a longish 1/30th exposure so its a bit soft but we can all see whats going on here. Some creative old school sports wear with sheer top and leather jacket fusion!

I styled something equally Street Style myself once, can you spot the theme here?

TISSOT Exclusive LIVE-NBA Finals Party - Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal

With a select group of local sports and fashion identities and the events own HUGE satellite dish parked out back - TISSOT hosted an exclusive LIVE-NBA Finals Party at the Sydney Overseas Passenger Terminal Cargo Hall, on a perfect sunny autumn day. NBA and Australian Boomers stars Isaac Humphries and Sterling Brown did a pre-game warm up interview; shot goals in a mid game free throw comp as entertainment against Josh Dugan of the Cronulla Sharks and Lachie Whitfield of the GWS GIANTS. There was American themed food; Burgers, Tacos, Caesar salad, Nachos, all of which was rather good; washed down with beer, water or wine.. Or a coffee; which was how I started out the day..
