Marcus Dixon’s work manages to make the tropes of Australian suburbia glamourous. Wild women and drunken men, native flora and fauna; these are the themes of Marcus’s skateboards, t-shirts, hats and even tea towels.
In a sense, Marcus has given Australian skateboarders and street wear aficionados their identities back. A kid from Bankstown no longer needs to wear a shirt emblazoned with LA, SF or NYC – now he can wear a magpie nicking off with a woman’s bra. Every young man’s dream…
What was yet another amazing exhibition held at the RVCA Corner Gallery, one of our favourite Australian artists, Marcus Dixon, drew a huge crowd of skaters, artists and locals down to Collingwood for his 'Date Night' Exhibition. Complete with skate decs, clothing and artworks, Dixon showed again that he is able to create timeless originals designs with any medium he chooses to set his mind to.
