I think this week has well and truly confirmed that Brendan McKnight is a man of great taste, and today’s selection of prints by some fantastic Melbourne based artists only proves this further!! – Jenny x
For today’s blog, I’ve adopted a different approach and instead of showing things that I have, I am showing things I would like to have, under the umbrella of ‘prints that I like’. I currently live with my sister in her flat and don’t have much wall space to call my own. I plan to (hopefully, perhaps, somehow) buy a very small place in the not-too-distant-future and maybe then I will be able to put some pennies aside to buy some of these lovely prints.
I was very lucky last year when tin&ed gifted me some prints from their United Eye solo exhibition (which I only recently got framed by Ryan Ward at United Measures – amazingly talented). A little while ago tin&ed also participated in group exhibition ‘CODE’ and created these Super Highway prints. Stunning.
I started following The Island Continent on Twitter a few months ago, not really knowing who was behind it all. When I discovered it was the side project of illustrator Eamo Donnelly, I got a little bit excited. Eamo is such a top bloke, and these explorative ‘Studies in Broadcast colour’ prints are exquisite. If you are interested in all things Australiana from Milk Bars and Big M’s to the Logies and the Giant Pineapple, his website is worth a visit.
