Endless Perspectives – Exhibition
The results of the Endless Perspectives project were shown during a 3-day exhibition in April 2013 at the construction site of the End to End building in Melbourne. Around 1000+ people hit the construction site and went on one of the guided tours! It was an absolute thrill putting this show on. Thanks to all that came down on the opening night to celebrate and join Does on his Endless Perspectives adventure.
About the Endless Perspectives project
Does traveled to Amsterdam, Basel, London, Paris, Melbourne & Sydney to paint canvasses incorporated into murals. His journeys were documented by cameraman Stephan Polman who accompanied Does during his travels to each of these cities. After returning from their travels Rube Parthoens jumped in to edit the footage and Blankeroy started cooking up a tune to match the respective city. ‘Endless Perspectives’ featured a new body of work aiming to capture graffiti’s transient nature. The title refers to the infinite interpretations and unlimited ways in which art and experiences can be perceived. During the journey that led to the work exhibited, DOES’s outlook evolved continuously. Events that at first glance appeared to be hurdles became unsought opportunities and vice versa – it’s all just a matter of perspective: the viewers’ included. A love letter to both cities and styles, ‘Endless Perspectives’ leaves you looking a little closer.
