Urban Viti

an/other oceania series that is currently on exhibition at Pacific Storms at the Logan Art Gallery in Logan, Queensland, Australia until 25 June, 2011

Urban Viti.

Urban Viti was created by Dulcie Stewart who grew up in Suva, Fiji and now lives in Brisbane Australia. She was one of the founding members of Red Wave Collective based at the Oceania Centre for Arts and Culture and Pacific Studies at The University of the South Pacific.

I particularly like her view on her surroundings and manages to see patterns of the pacific in everyday life. I often do this myself and am excited to see someone else making work reflecting this.

Some nice work from the mob at Gilimbaa Creative Agency

Gilimbaa was born out of a passion to work with Indigenous art and story-telling and the elements it can bring to contemporary design and communication.

Gilimbaa seem to have found that medium between using traditional art and modern design sense and quite successfully I might add. I particularly like the project they created using old football boots and indigenous artworks for the AFL Boots and Dreams Exhibition.
