- Hurben – PEARTH
Perth street artist Hurben’s third solo show ‘Pearth’ promises to be a strikingly poignant critique of the hypocritical culture of Perth. As an added bonus this opening has been planned to coincide with the debut exhibition of local underground sticker artist Bubble Bobble.
Hurben presents ‘Pearth’, a collection of paintings reflective of the quick shifting culture of our city. Using a range of strong symbolic local icons, Hurben creates a dystopian landscape that challenges Perth’s attitude to its past, present and future, questioning our collective motivations.
Well known within the West Australian arts community, Hurben is one of the 3 founders of the infamous ololo collective whose credits include orchestrating the legendary Condor Car Park project and ReFace 2009 – both of which were highly influential in contributing to Perth’s evolving attitude toward street art.
Having completed a yearlong residency @ 140 William earlier this year, Hurben continues in his active endeavours to improve the visual landscape with such creative offerings as the extraordinary 10m tall mural he recently painted in the CBD’s Wolf Lane.
Making an impression upon untold city spaces over the years, Hurben’s work is bold, challenging and reflective. PEARTH is his third solo exhibition and showcases an impressive depiction of our city and the relationship that this artist shares with it.
