#NowOnShow | Tiger Yaltangki, Malpa Wiro (Good Friends), 2018, synthetic polymer paint on linen, 152 x 122 cm, exhibiting until 18 April at @alcaston_gallery, Melbourne.

#Repost from @alcaston_gallery| With his bold, idiosyncratic style and vibrant use of colour, Tiger Yaltangki creates exciting artworks that allude to an avid appreciation for popular culture and an innate understanding of his country in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunyjatjara (APY) Lands, north-west of South Australia.

Yaltangki takes inspiration from his favourite science fiction films and television shows, such as The Might Boosh and Dr Who, as well as influential rock and roll bands like AC/DC in the creation of his Malpa Wiru (‘good friends’). These vivid characters come alive within striking abstract landscapes, together with imaginative depictions of Pitjantjatjara Mamu, cheeky supernatural spirits that derive from an inherited knowledge of his traditional culture.

Joining the #InstallationContemporary program for Sydney Contemporary 2018 ‘yourheartisahousewiththedoorsleftopen’ displayed Glenn Barkley’s interest in the grotto and the 'horror vacui' – fear of empty spaces. The walls were covered in a wallpaper paste-up, the centrepiece of which was a ‘roundel’ composed of hundreds of ceramic tokens. Read more about this work on our website (link in bio)
