Almost Solo 18

January 28 @ 5:00 pm - February 10 @ 5:00 pm


Join us for Almost Solo, set to run 28 January – 10 February at in.cube8r Fitzroy.

Not quite a group show, not quite a solo show, Almost Solo brings individual artists together to exhibit their bodies of work in a shared space.

Mickayla Cristiano / Izzy Abuleela / Brad (Beast) East / Coraline Caroline

Exhibition Runs: 28 January – 10 February 2021

Opening Night: Thursday 28 January 5-7pm.
Due to COVID-19 Restrictions food and drinks will not be provided and density limits apply. We encourage visitors to make plans to visit one of the lovely local bars for a drink, then pop by to check out the show and do some late night shopping!

Izzy Abuleela

Izzy Abuleela

Embedded deep within the human psyche is the drive to search for permanence, this is hardly surprising given the chaotic world humankind has found itself in. The transient and hectic lifestyles of today often hamper our ability to pause, reflect and identify the core components of life that give us joy.
Through the application of long (and super-long) exposure techniques Izzy attempts to reveal the ephemeral beauty that is often hidden beneath a turbulent, and frequently violent, environment. Utilising time, scale and texture he records the meeting point of earth, water and human construct, capturing the essence of the scene without distortion or distraction.
All things disappear in time, and so, we can assume that there is no real permanence, except, ironically, the search for permanence itself. This is what motivates Izzy’s practice, what pushes him to create a record of the struggle of loss, survival and revelation for others to contemplate.
Mickayla Cristiano

Mickayla Cristiano

Mickayla’s main focus is psychedelic landscapes or any type of work with lots of colour. She enjoys making psychedelic art as she can make landscapes that don’t have to be traditional and can place colour wherever she wants such as making the sun bright pink without any questions. She also enjoys creating biomorphic abstraction sculptures using mediums that lots of artists don’t use such as gap filler and paper mache. She enjoys making these sculptures as they aren’t like everyone else’s and each one has their own flare.
Brad (Beast) East


The Untitled Can Project was developed in an attempt to find more opportunities for reuse in Beast’s graffiti and social practise. Since 2017 he has been painting and engraving his emptied cans, as well as collecting empties from artists at murals throughout Melbourne and Canberra.
Taking Paul Klee’s (1926) ‘Garden for Orpheus’ as his point of departure, Beast has expanded a broad vocabulary of line work which come to reference the gridded layout of Melbourne’s streets and alleys along with architectural abstractions. Each can is recorded for its location of use and, where applicable, the artist they were sourced from in a consideration of the history of the graffiti and the people that contribute to it. By early 2021 the project has expanded to include collaborations with Baxter (UK), Dan Wall (QLD), Sark, Quiet One (ACT) Caws, Wedz, Manda Lane, Ness Flett (VIC) and a number of artists who have chosen not to be identified.
