The art exhibition titled “Mechatribal” is put together by two Perth talents Andrew Hodgson (Hodgie) and David Gillett. Hodgie describes himself to be a specialist in “3D concept design utilizing software to create ultra detailed scenes and characters influenced by modern gaming, and Sci fi imagery.”
His partner David Gillett’s artwork however is influenced by “80′s skate punk, 60′s psychedelia, spiritual art plus his own warped imagination.”
Mechatribal was held on Saturday 27th August 2011 at OneUpMicrocinema.
OneUp Microcinema, owned by Matthew Darch is Perth’s own clothing store which uniquely doubles as a privately owned cinema open for public. OneUp Microcinema often plays a vast collection of indie, art house, and cult favourites.
The store has a unique feel to it. Decorated by retro game artworks, lit up by futuristic neon lights, it has a classic retro feel. The microcinema located above the store has a feel of a friendly home cinema. The waiting room is filled with retro game classics such as Wonderboy and Sonic the Hedgehog on SEGA, and if you’d like you can also play on SNES.
OneUp Microcinema is located on 312b William Street, Northbridge, Perth, Australia.
