Crab Shack

A few weeks ago Cam Wall and I did a mural for Eat Art Truck and their newly opened sit down venue, Truckstop.

The theme was “Creole Cookout” – A fusion between Southern soul food and traditional Japanese. The concept of the mural was to depict two giant sized god-zilla/kaiju shellfish. This is what we came up with.

VERSUS THE CITY – Artworks

Why Kaiju? We both mutually thought it was something cool that hasn’t really been done in Sydney especially from a full illustrated standpoint. We both share common love and influence from that side of the East, so stepping out as a collaborative force we thought it would be the perfect fit.

From the onset while planning the gallery with Gerald, we knew we wanted to go big, loud and colourful. Gerald’s art before this point was all precise and detailed black and white ink work so it was a big jump out of his comfort zone to go into large scale canvas colour.
Check out his works over at his fb page.

Kaiju themselves aren’t really bad nor good. As opposed to Western monsters they are strictly born to fight and most of the time born to lose. They come in wacky shapes, sizes, colours from menacing to just plain goofy. The creative freedom is pretty much limitless.
With my Kaiju I wanted to draw influence from the “boss” monsters. The guys that would typically fight at the end of a long battle. I knew Gerald was going to infuse a more classic Kaiju look as well as act as an extension of his “Rhombians” so I wanted to go a bit left field by playing with pattern and other cultural influences.
