A few days left to visit Bryan Itch’s solo show Multiple Reality Disorder at RTIST Gallery in Melbourne. Check out our photos from the exhibition below!
Artist, tattooist, musician and animator - Itch is a name that has echoed throughout the streets of Australia since 1998. With his upcoming solo show at RTIST Gallery, Multiple Reality Disorder, Itch will coalesce over a decade and a half of thought, talent and theory. Having exhibited and displayed work across Australia, at galleries and venues such as NGV Studio, Mays Lane, Outpost, China Heights and a multitude of others, Itch is no stranger to the gallery setting. As a festival mainstay, his art has also adorned a huge array of banners and installations, most particularly at the annual Rainbow Serpent festival, and his many live art performances at events such as Tiger Translate, Secret Walls and Red Bull Wreckers have been witnessed by thousands. From this wealth of experience and unmitigated passion, Itch has produced a new, excitingly quixotic body of work.
A transcendent exhibition, Multiple Reality Disorder will leave both your vision, and your mind, spieling towards the hidden dimensions that exist apart from this world - leading you on a movable feast of exploration and discovery. Guided by an inner light, each work will transcend in form as your eyes slowly reveal the beauty within the mundane.
Crossing genres with ease, all is not as it may first appear within Itchs work - characters and forms, scenery and fauna are mutable and guised, their true visages revealed only by the multicoloured separation of photons. Psychedelic, graffiti and fine art aesthetics are imbued with illusion, removing you from the monotonal world that some believe we inhabit - and yet Itchs sense of levity and humour pervade it all, lightening the heavy streams of thought that emerge.
