Melbourne Bitter Presents 'Eskybition'

Melbourne Bitter is pleased to present 'Eskybition';
a collaboration with some of Melbourne's finest illustrative artists to produce a series of hand-painted, classic, Aussie Eskys.

They will be exhibited at Melbourne’s RVCA Australia & New Zealand Gallery.
Opening night is Friday April 13, from 6

- 9pm, the exhibition will run until gallery closes on Sunday 15th April.

Featuring hand-painted classic eskys from:
Salvador Gnarly -Artwork by Andy Murphy
Callum Preston | Art and Design
Cassie Stevens aka Soggy Savoy
Celeste Potter Art
Clare Clarity of Hot Copper Studio
Justine McAllister
Lachlan Philp
Shane Wilcox tattoo
Steve Cohen of Too Far Gone screenprinting

The ‘Eskybition’ group show adopts the concept of upcycling; the process of transforming waste materials, useless, or unwanted products into new products of better quality or for better environmental value. A bunch of humble, much-loved eskys that have seen better days (sourced from Gumtree, eBay, vintage and charity stores) have been gifted a literal and aesthetic rebirth.

Painstakingly hand painted by the likes of tattoo artist Clare Hampshire, heralded street artist Andy Murphy, screen-printer and illustrator Steve Cohen, and several other exceptional artistic talents, they meld the iconic Esky brand with another homegrown icon: Melbourne Bitter. Two nostalgic names are updated skilfully and irreverently throughout this diverse and distinctly Melbourne exhibition.

Make your way to RVCA Gallery, enjoy an icy cold Melbourne Bitter and perhaps pick up one of these beauties for yourself at the silent auction.

All proceeds from esky sales will be donated to Support Act,
to assist musicians and artists in crisis.
