WA-based street artist Handbrake’s latest exhibition looks set to blow some serious minds, featuring a hand-painted Robinson R66 turbo charged helicopter! The self-taught, internationally renowned artist behind Handbrake, Hans Bruechle, is understandably excited to unveil it: “I’ve never seen a hand-painted helicopter before, so I thought, why not do it myself? Chaos Rising is all about taking objects to the next level. I want people to see my work and say ‘Oh, that’s awesome!’
In addition to 30 original Handbrake artworks on display and available for purchase, Chaos Rising will also include a custom Rogue Motorcycles display, an award-winning hand-painted Café Racer motorbike and Handbrake’s signature hand-painted denim jacket line, skateboard decks, merchandise and apparel on display.
The exhibition is divided up into two nights, an 18+ Event on the Saturday from 6.30pm with free live tattooing, tunes from DJ Mike de Wet and Melotyx, custom-created Handbrake cocktails by West Winds Gin, plus free finger lickin’ catering (think sliders, mac & cheese and fries) from RoyAl’s Chicken and Burgers. This is followed by an all-ages, family friendly affair on the Sunday from 9-5pm on Sunday 30 May.
It all takes place at the Old Pickle Factory in West Perth.
