Dylan Martorell, you may know him from such shopping ventures as Sasquatch and Outskirts t-shirt Gallery, you may have seen him perform feats of sound bending magic with fellow pencil /vinyl geek Nathan Gray, as 'Snawkler', you may have happened upon his otherworldly illustrated t-shirts at Craft Victoria, Corky St.Clair or one of the Fat stores, you might have even seen him and his band of merry pranksters 'Hi-Gods' supporting Sonic Youth this year...
What, you've never heard of him. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN!!!
Quick! you can catch up by visiting his latest exhibition INFINIGHTS at Someday Gallery. Enter a Doctor Who meets Parliament inspired collection of musical costumes, instruments and sound sculptures, alongside a magnificent collection of limited edition prints that expose the secret lives and rituals of animals, there's even a set of viewfinders and promises of live performances. What a package deal!
Dylan has also set up a studio in the gallery where he'll be creating weird sounds, weirder drawings and reconfiguring discarded and unlikely objects like a mad professor in his lab. He may even get some of the gear on for an impromptu gig.
Pop in and say Hi, he's a helluva nice fella.
