TARNS ONE solo exhibition

Debut solo exhibition by Notorious Graffiti Artist, Tarns One!

Tarns One (The one who freaks the funk), has been painting graffiti since 1987. Influenced by the Graffiti phenomena in Sydney and Adelaide during the 80s, Tarns picked up a spray can and hasn’t dropped the can since. He is best known for his ability to perpetually reinvent his style, all the while preserving the more traditional elements of graffiti. This has made him an icon in the Australian graffiti culture. Tarns always comes correct with one of the best can control skills in the game.
Tarns has exhibited in many group shows nationally and internationally, and now announces his FIRST Solo exhibition: ‘TARNS ONE’ - his works will be exhibited at the recently opened gallery ‘THE SPACE’ Currie Street, Adelaide (entry via Burnett St). 

This exhibition will show works displaying his impeccable skills with aerosol paint. Tarns continuously stretches the limitless possibilities this art form can be taken. His works are a statement; they feature abstract ideas exploring the relationship of forms and colour with some works derived straight from raw graffiti. His paintings are an explosion of dynamic colours, technical line work and geometric letter forms.

After 27 years of painting graffiti, this exhibition will be a real treat for anyone who has seen Tarns Graffiti Art in the streets, and for those who haven’t you now have the opportunity to see and potentially own a painting of this Australian Aerosol Genius.

Tarns One - First Solo Exhibition on show at - THE SPACE, Currie St (enter from Burnett St) opening on Friday the 28th of November (6-9pm) – 30th of November for 3 days only.

GROTS: Exclusive Interview with Cold Krush

2ND SEPTEMBER, 2014, BY LA FLEUR

He’s a man of many hats; lead singer of a mathcore band ‘A Ghost Orchesta’ and a man who paints the town green when quiet Adelaide goes to sleep. We are excited to announce his first solo exhibtion will open at Cold Krush on Friday, 5th of September (6-9pm). I Sat down with The Dreadful Grots, and asked a few questions to find out what makes this guy tick.

 

F: When did you start writing?

G: Well I first started doodling on paper and down alleyways in 2001 when it was all fresh to me, but I guess going out of my neighbour hood and trying to get my name up properly would be 2003/2004.

F: What was your inspiration to pick up a can for the first time?

G: Growing up on the B-line side of town and seeing old ‘Sumn’ and ‘Okur’ bangers floating on the line really got my eyes jiggling (these were the only ones I could read before I knew what graffiti pieces properly were. I use to find old scraps of paint hanging around the Lynton tunnel and would use them to my advantage.

F: What Crews do you rep?

G: F1, EG, TGB's yo!

 

F: Who are your main influences in the Graffiti Game?

G: To myself as a painter are my brothers around me, Vans the Omega, Roger, Ogre, Guids, Sirum, and Okies. They get me Rollin!

F: Do you have a favourite memory to share?

G: Its hard to pin point a "favourite" memory but jesus, every time that wonderful paint hits that boring grey wall is fantastic. Meeting and having the chance to paint with some all time favs does make me jolly!

F: What’s on the horizon?

G: The next big project for me is to push my boundaries a little more each time those pigments hit the wall. I want to make things enjoyable for the non-graffiti eye to freshen up to.

F: What are your other interests?

G: The other side of my life is music. I’m a vocalist in a southern hardcore type band called 'A Ghost Orchestra'. Most hip hop heads probably won't like the sound of it but check it out anyway!

F: Do you have any tips or advice for the up and comers?

G: Be yourself, don't worry what other writers say. Live life on the fresh side!
