Melbourne stencil artist ‘Kirpy’, has transported his industrial and street art concepts into a gallery context, whilst holding onto his originality, and standing out without destroying the connection of the artist’s original habitat or their contemporary attitudes of the world today.

Kirpy has created an insight of the youthful viewpoint of creative urban life today! ‘Raw Cuts’ is a collection of work made by stencils and printed on printmaking paper and cardboard, depicting imagery from the Melbourne street scene, to that of Berlin, New York and San Francisco. Using raw materials such as these, Kirpy creates an authenticity to the term ‘Raw Cuts’. ‘The work holds a relatively raw element, whether it’s in the subject matter or painting technique’ Kirpy explains.

As stenciling is a very versatile medium to work with, Kirpy has transferred from the original adolescent canvas of the streets of Melbourne, to a more mature 3x3 meter mural over multiple, unfolded cardboard boxes, with highly detailed hand cut multi-layered stencils painted with spray paint. It’s the technique that allows the blurring and mixture of mediums from printmaking, photography and painting, and Kirpy has created a benchmark for young contemporary printmakers to watch.

Kirpy’s original street platform is unfamiliar to Port Jackson Press Printmakers, but as we move with modern times, PJP is embracing contemporary artists like Kirpy, who are redefining the older age printing techniques, with a modern edge and multiple disciplines, techniques and subject matter that reflects our current world today.

Kirpy will be doing a live ‘piece’ on the Port Jackson Press gallery walls on Saturday 10th May from 1pm. Don’t miss the opportunity to meet Kirpy and witness him in action.
