The artist Shag will be here in Melbourne this Friday for the launch of his new and rare print exhibition. Shag (known as Josh Agle) is a painter, designer and illustrator working in Southern California. His distinctive artistic style draws from commercial illustration from the past five decades, but the work is imbued with an attitude and sly sense of humour which is unmistakably of our time. Solo exhibitions of Shag's work have been held all over the world. This is the 20th anniversary of Shag’s first visit to our shores in 1999. 

Read our interview with Shag from his 2017 show to learn more about the artist. 

Drinks for the opening kindly sponsored by our friends at Bodriggy Brewing Co.

Feature Show
Outré Gallery Fitzroy
15 November 2019

Pete Bakacs is a painter based in Ocean Grove, Victoria, who has a love for mid-century design and vintage cars. A Melbourne native, Pete spent his childhood in the outer eastern hills subsisting on a diet of skateboarding, cartoons and 70s cars. With a fastidious hand, Pete reveals a bright, acrylic world of vehicles, old school pastimes, and pop typography. 

Read our interview with Pete from his 2018 show to learn more about his art practice.
