Ah, zines. How refreshing it still is to hold a publication focused on one topic, like art. LUSH, a graffiti writer hailing from Melbourne, is one of the big fish swimming in the small pool of indie publishing with Another Shit Zine. Ever the self-deprecating critic of his own work, and the art world that takes itself too seriously, he pokes fun at it all. LUSH is in town showing his work tonight at NYC’s Klughaus Gallery. He features some of his comical illustrations on his Tumblr. You shouldn’t just settle for that though. Buy one of the bounded editions as a keepsake, that reads that special message on the front, “You Are Wack.” If that’s not enough of a selling point, take it from LUSH, he says, “It will help you teleport into other dimensions.” You are welcome.
See some of LUSH’s illustrations below, along with details on tonight’s exhibit at Klughaus Gallery.
Opening Reception: Saturday, August 25 from 6-10pm
Location: 47 Monroe Street New York, NY 10002
