The Station Show by artbyabbey
The Station Show
I had some art pieces featured at a show a couple weeks back called The Station. They had dance, live music, art..
Didn't sell anything.. Probably not the best organised event for us artists but hey, it was free.

Lorde by artbyabbey

I started this many months ago, hoping to turn it into a stencil. I lost interest, then recently decided it would be better as a "digital illustration", so i've finally uploaded it to my Society6 account where you can purchase the print! There's so much more I could've done with it but I just wanted to finish it before I lost interest again.

funnily enough, I gave her a Nirvana tee WAY before she covered Nirvana.

Toast To The Dead by artbyabbey
Toast To The Dead
My hand cut stencil of the rapper and activist immortal technique. one of my favourite rappers. 
I’d been feeling very uninspired lately, and whenever there’s a lot going on in the world I tend to give up on the news and listen to music. finding answers in songs particularly by Immortal Technique and Lowkey. They’ve probably taught me more history than any of my high school history teachers have haha. So I'd been listening to a lot of it and suddenly it became obvious, why don’t I draw up a stencil of him? I have done so in the past but it was pretty small. So i created this one. it took awhile to choose a lyric from one of his songs to use but the verse I took this quote from has always stuck with me. So I used that. 

However, from my own point, it's not perfect. I ran out of all these colours so I wasn't able to clean up the canvas as much as I'd like.. Ah well!

- two layered hand cut stencil on canvas, done with aerosol paint.
- stencil of immortal technique, using lyrics from his song "toast to the dead" from the album, the martyr.
- 76cm x 51cm. 

i had considered these other lyrics
"trapped in a ghetto region, like a palestinian kid, where nobody gives a fuck whether you die or you live."
- “you make the future, but it starts with leaving the past.”
 and, well plenty more. if you’re a fan, you’d know the list could go on for ages.
---

Immortal Technique, remember me when I’m gone

I encrypted my lyrics to stay alive in a song
So you’ll always keep a piece, of my spirit inside
When you struggle to complete what I started before I died
But some of you, won’t survive the changes the earth makes
Swallowed by tsunamis, hurricanes and earthquakes
And that’s just the first stage if you cannot reverse ways,
And realise that we are one, regardless of our birthplace
