Past Exhibition - Shag Rare Proof and Mid-Century Modern Show (Brisbane)

SEP 11th - OCT 9th 2015 - BRISBANE

Outré Gallery Brisbane is proud to announce an exclusively-curated mixed exhibition of rare (and long sold-out) proof prints by Shag, along with original mid-century modern architectural renderings, prints, books and objects.

Painter, illustrator, and designer Josh “Shag” Agle is the master of a sharp, swinging, lounge aesthetic that embraces illustrative finesse, flat perspective, and the type of subtle humour that has become synonymous with Shag's work - a celebration of consumerism through characters who smoke, drink and socialise in fantasy settings. His works are visually influenced by the avant-garde animation of the early fifties and sixties, as well as generic advertising art of the same era - such as sci-fi pulp art and sixties clip art.  The exhibition will feature a selection of proof editions of sold-out prints released to us from Shag’s personal archives exclusively for this show.

Outré Gallery Brisbane - 237 Boundary St, West End QLD 4101
*works will be on show and for sale via our Brisbane Gallery, but could be sent to other locations in Australia depending on availability.
