Late last year we started work with Kirpy on his screenprint release “Westside truck”. This artwork is made exclusively for this print but is part of the same body of work from his recent solo show ‘Kunst’ at Port Jackson Press. This was a completely analogue process using the hand cut stencils from the original painting to create the films for the print.
Kirpy is a Berlin Based artist originally from Melbourne. He works primarily with hand cut stencils to document street scenes in excruciating detail. He paints on to recycled cardboard boxes which combined with monotone rustic colour palette captures the essence and grittiness of the landscapes documented.
