Bringing together two disciplines under one roof, LA illustrator Travis Moore and photographer Jack Buster have teamed up for a joint exhibition at Dalston’s Doomed Gallery.
The exhibition, titled Sharp, places the two artists’ work in conversation, each depicting their various surroundings – from London to LA and beyond. Born in Australia and currently residing in London, Buster’s instinctive style captures fleeting moments on 35mm, encouraging ambiguous narrative. Whilst Texas-born Moore is best known for his sharpie-based drawings, a process he refers to as ‘Sharpism.’ (If you’ve had the pleasure of strolling down Hollywood’s glam Sunset Strip lately you’ll probably have glimpsed Moore’s incredible life-size Lemmy statue outside the late Motörhead frontman’s favourite haunt, the Rainbow Bar & Grill, where he could often be found with signature Jack Daniel’s and Coke in hand.)
“Sharp is an exhibition centered on the different experiences of two artists, with different media and different styles,” said Moore and Buster. “Portraying moments, series of events, revelations and insights into the two different worlds they live within, and the similarities between them.”
Both artists will be present throughout the three-day exhibition, making live collaborative works: portraits taken on the spot will be illustrated by Travis in front of your very eyes. Oh, and be sure to pick up one of the duo’s excellent zines – available at just £10 each, bargain.
Sharp runs from 16th–19th March at Doomed Gallery, 65 Ridley Rd, London E8 2NP
