Backwoods Gallery | LUSH “ANOTHER SHITHOUSE ‘ART’ SHOW” Opening recap (Video) – Melbourne, Australia.

Here’s a full-tilt recap of the hilarity that occured during LUSH’s show “Another Shithouse ‘Art’ Show” at Melbourne’s Backwoods Gallery on 9 December, 2011.

“Lush’s debut show at Backwoods Gallery in the December of 2010 was met with a mixed response, but controversy has fueled the reputation of the artist who has since gained global recognition for his brutal commentary of street and graffiti art.

The opening night featured round two of the eternal struggle between good and evil, as expressed through the delicate art of backyard wrestling, original illustrations, a video premier, installations and a series of cartoon commentaries on graffiti culture which were also available as a Limited Edition Signed Risograph Zine.” –BackwoodsGallery.
