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.
Sign up to receive the show preview.
Drinks at the opening will be provided by the folks at Bodriggy Brewing Co.
Artworks will appear below from 7am on Thursday, 14 November 2019. In the meantime, below are two of the new exclusive prints currently being offer with a special pre-order price, and a selection of newer prints. Full show goes live 7am (Australian Eastern Time).
