Sauce on the cans.
XIX LXIX by Sauce illuminates the possibilities of the space-time continuum, which as humans, we experience without consciousness. Earth is paradoxical by being both monumental and insignificant. Humanity is constantly seeking physical answers to metaphysical questions which creates barriers and restraints on our own freedom.
Sauce was thrilled to (finally) finish this mural in Brisbane this week. He created the mural over two days in the hot Brisbane sun, at a school in Mt. Gravatt. The principal graciously allowed Sauce to create this design at the school, as it was a challenge to find somewhere which suited the layout of this mural. If you’re thinking this image is familiar, then you’re right. This picture features as one of our postcard designs
(Available for $3.00 in store. What a bargain!) and it also has
which can be traced back to Tasmania.
January got off to a gutsy and gory start with a five day project at Brisbane Pop Culture, Newstead. Turtle and Em from Brisbane Tattoo requested an Invader Zim and Zombie theme to advertise their latest venture, Brisbane Pop Culture (previously Brisbane Relics), a store dedicated to pop culture collectables. Turtle and Em were great to work for and I really enjoyed the positive feedback from all the passerbys. The Brisbane summer sun and rain tried to get the best of me, but I managed to thrash out some zombies and aliens, regardless of the weather.

Day breaks and the sun begins to warm the concrete jungle. It is easy to ignore the natural environment and focus on a capitalist-centric trajectory. This is an expression of connection and disconnection: an illustration of dissonance among the birdsong. Is nature reconnecting or are the urban elements dominating?

Based on the theme poem Power of Community by PB Tewson:
In the dawn bright with birdsong,
the people rise to watch the world open.
