AnyForty Versus Exhibition 2014: Artist Unveil 12 of 25

First up, apologies on the delay of these blog posts, if you didn’t see on the social media tip, been up in Aberdeen tearing down the stage of a incredible creative conference called The Meat, alongside the likes of illustration and design legends like JamFactory, Brand Nu, Signalnoise and Aaron Draplin. If you wanna see talks from those fellas, there’s a digital pass being sold here.

Anyway, back to business and proud to hit you square in the face with artist unveil number 12 of 25 of the incredible lineup of worldwide artists who’ve donated their time and skills for our AnyForty Versus Charity Exhibition taking place in London (venue to be announced real soon) in July, and again, in no particular order, proud to announce a previous collaborator to the AnyForty Family first seen in the AnyForty & T-world “The Australian Invasion Series” ladies and gentlefellows, let us reintroduce you to another Australian collaborator…

Repping Sydney town to the fullest and hailing from a sick family of artists, Dale, his brother Benny, and their pops are all incredible pencil man handlers. Dale is hands down one of the hardest working artists we know, balancing a incredible work ethic alongside family life raising 2 little girls, we got nothing but respect for his graft, incredibly humble even though he’s rapidly growing in name, smashing stuff for heavyweight clients like Harley Davidson and Sullen. He’s making a name for himself by being one of the sickest artists to smash up black and white illos since Mr Giant first picked up a pen, no one can flip a skull like our man Dale. His style and the way he tears illustrator up is immense, just look at the shading in the hat and the roses in the Mr Black Owl illo below. Now Mr Bigeni smashes skulls out for fun, but we thought this being a exhibition that’s helping to raise awareness of young male suicide, was probably best to stay away from anything that resembles death, and boy, our pal has come through and blown our minds.  All you fellow 80′s baby’s it’s gonna blow your minds. Much love to Dale for getting involved with the AnyForty cause once again. AnyFortyFamily fo’ life!

AnyForty & T-world presents… DALE BIGENI

15th March 2012 | Tags: , ,

Not to be TAKEN for granted, this is the first time a collaboration has been done with both Bigeni brothers. Introducing Dale…

Who is Dale Bigeni, to those who don’t know you? Dale Bigeni is a 26-year-old dude from Sydney, who loves to draw and has a serious passion for skulls, skateboarding, punk rock music and, of course, my daughter!

What do you think of the Australian streetwear scene compared to the rest of the world? The Australian streetwear scene is right on par with the rest of the world. I think a lot of people underestimate it. I believe Australians are super hungry to be a part of the bigger picture.

How would you describe your style? Highly animated, sometimes serious but always mine! A lot of my work has tattoo-styled lines with the hint of a graphic design college dropout!

What do you know about the UK in general? All I can really tell you is that it’s cold, Banksy lives in a secret hideout over there, and they are crazy for soccer.

Have you ever been to the UK and tell us about a memorable experience you had? I’ve never been to the UK. If I do go anytime soon, I’ll be sure to create some pretty memorable experiences though!
