Framed: Amok Island
We can't get enough of the work by Fremantle-based, Amsterdam-born, multidisciplinary artist Amok Island.
Amok Island has been on the scene for a while now, and certainly established himself as one to watch. His last solo exhibition was a beautiful exploration of Australian fauna and flora in the signature style he's known for, with bold colours, strong geometry and clean lines that seemed near-impossible to render by hand. His paintings consistently blow us away, and they're even more spectacular as large-scale murals with the element of site-specificity that allows them to interact with each environment. Amok's sculptural series of concrete letters in his own typography design was perhaps his most interesting project to date, submerged underwater and left to decay, then exhibited alongside the paintings of Endemism. Here's a little throwback to the work preceeding his appearance in this week's Underline Project.
