BABES take the Warehouse is happening on August 27 at The Cambridge Hotel and it sounds like an amazing event! So we have been chatting with some of the artists behind the project including visual artist INDISUX.
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is indi and i’m a newy visual artist. I mostly work on little fine line graphic type drawings of pretty cute, but pretty gross figures.
When did you start creating?
I’ve always been a creator i guess. Ever since i can remember i’ve been making little sculptures out of paddlepop sticks and toilet rolls, not to mention my whole school life mostly consisted of me sitting up the very back of the class scribbling away in my schoolbook to take away from the mundanity of whatever subject i was supposed to be learning about.
Who are your influences?
Super hard question to answer because there’s so many, but i’d have to say my family. I come from a super lovely group of creatives in all different artistic fields, so growing up around that was really inspiring and has probably influenced a lot of my work in a great way.
Have you got any local favourite artists?
Gosh! probably all of them. I love Shakoda & Bonzo. They’ve got an amazing work ethic and have taught me a lot of different techniques and stuff. Greatest dudes! Also Mel O’Dell has an incredible style of working that i just can’t get enough of, but my fav local artist at the moment would have to be Sophia Flegg. The colors she uses make me go crazy!
There is a show coming up?
Yeah, Babes of newy take the warehouse at the Cambridge. Super incredible non-for profit gig, teaming up with the kids over at Love + Rent, to raise money to help homeless w*men and w*men in shelters, with sanitary luxuries that most of us w*men take for granted. I’m super keen to get involved with such a great group of humans.
What should people expect?
Basically, a group of super talented Bands, getting together playing some super lovely tunes to raise money for a good cause! Theres also a group of 5 artists getting together to sell some stuff also. I wouldn’t want to miss it, it’s going to be a blast.
What is next?
At the moment my main focus is working on developing and reinventing my style to something a bit more expressive. Also have a few little zines in the mix to look out for as well as me getting my classic durry earrings out for purchase again.
