The Last Night...

Last week myself and t' missis jumped on the train to Brussels to check out The Last Night at the Alice Gallery, the two man show of Husk Mit Navn and Lydia Fong (aka Barry McGee). Both artists are particular favourites of mine and I wasn't disappointed, along with his work Husk Mit Navn boshed out some rad work on the gallery walls inside and outside and McGee came correct with his signature clusters of paintings, drawing and photos.

I've not had a chance to see either of these guy's work in person until now and it made me super inspired to make art. I'd love to own a piece from either of the two but I had to make do with a poster from the show and a copy of the Beautiful Losers book, the book supports the film about people like Barry McGee, Espo, Margaret Kilgallen and a bunch of other involved with Alleged Gallery in NY. I saw the film a while ago and just like this show, it's super inspiring.

Anyway, on with the flicks, first: to Brussels!...
