Oli Collab Comp Winner: Remy Hall

Posted by Oliver McDonald on

If you didn't hear, early October we ran a comp to give our customers the chance to have their own design hand printed on a t-shirt in the upcoming Oli Summer range. With over 100 entries over the week submissions were open, it was overwhelming how many rad, talented customers we have out there. However, there could only be 1 winner, and that was a talented 17 year old girl called Remy Hall. We thought we'd sit down with Remy and find out more about her creative background and about her artwork. 

First of all, who are you?

 A girl whose just graduated high school and isn't sure what to do after leavers and summer hahah. Grew up in Scarborough and lifes always revolved around the beach. 


Could you speak about how you got into drawing?

I got into drawing when I was younger, dad was super into art as well so we'd always do charcoal pictures together most nights. Then when I moved to churchlands in year 12 my art teacher told me to get back into drawings again, and that's when the "faces" idea happened and resulted in my year 12 piece being a spray piece of the faces on a wall at the school. 
 
How did you think of your submitted piece? Was there any inspiration behind it?

Bored in maths. I'm not a big maths person, and once again got distracted. My mate I was sitting next too was also super into art and I just said hold up let me draw your face weirdly, and that was the result. Afterwards jokingly said "yeah should put this on a tshirt would be rad".
 
What kind of subject matter do you like to draw?

Anything outside the box, I can't draw a normal face at all, it's gotta be a bit wack for it too look alright. Mainly like drawing black and white scenery that looks like it's a lsd trip aha
 
What made you want to enter the comp?
Just graduated high school and wanting to see a link to any sort of career. I thought this would be a cool way too start something. 

Lastly, any plans for the future?
Hopefully something in either graphic design or sport (2 completely different areas) , but definitely travel next year!!  
Check out the final piece of the collaboration below!

Featured Artist 001: Henry King

Posted by Oliver McDonald on

Henry King is definitely a man of all trades. You may have seen the Melbourne based creatives name floating around Oli over the last couple of years. But we've admired Henry's creative works for a long time now. We must admit, we're a sucker for his rad photography wishing we could pull off what he does. We caught up with the man himself and had a chat about his recent 193 day trip throughout Europe and the US, and all things creative.

1. To start things off, can you tell everyone a little bit about yourself?

My name is Henry King - I am 22 and just relocated to Melbourne from sunny Perth. I am currently finishing off my honours at RMIT doing interior.

2. Where are you? What are your immediate surroundings?

Nothing too out there, just on the couch in my lounge room - doors open & fresh air.

3. How would you describe your work? 

I only recently stumbled across the concept called decisive moments, founded by Henri Cartier-Bresson. I feel strongly about this within my photography.

4. What's your most memorable photo?

Either running and jumping to dodge all this mud to get the flamingo shots. Actually all of the shots from the salt flat tour in bolivia, that tour was nuts as.

5. It's obvious you prefer shooting Film > Digital, why is this?

I prefer it since I feel it captures ‘moments’ better.

6. I know you have travelled to a lot of places recently, but is there anywhere you're absolutely dreaming of setting foot on and why?

Still yet to see snow if you can believe it. Have always had Alaska in my head since I was really young.

7. Out of all the natural & man made beauty (Mountains, waterfalls, rustic architecture, whatever), what element of the world are you most passionate about shooting and why?

Good question. I think I prefer being in a city or a town with a lot happening rather than straight landscape. Finding that pause and moment makes photographers who they are.

8. Any crazy stories of your recent 193 day trip? Surely you would've faced some hectic moments?

Actually not too many hectic moments, as a whole we didn’t really run into a heap of trouble luckily. Was a pretty smooth sailing trip.

9. Three favourite spots on the web to browse?

www.workhardforthis.tumblr.com

www.gurafiku.tumblr.com

www.mogutakahashi.com

10.  What in your opinion makes the perfect image? What elements need to exist in a moment for the image to get “the” shot?

Framing and use of space, also - same same but different.

11. What have you been listening to lately?

www.soundcloud.com/solar-lab

And -  ‘I Am The Center: Private Issue New Age Music In America 1950-1990’. Simply beautiful.

12. Three of your mates we should check out?

  • @jacktowers_ - only really picked up a proper camera recently, he’s done his research and got to some really cool locations throughout his time in America.
  • @cameron_scott - hanging out to see a collection of his photographs from his near 2 year stint exploring, I’m sure he’ll have some gems.
  • @brotherteej - I love this dude as much as his photography.

Have a geez at his stuff below and throw him a follow on Instagram
