Event Details

Being an artist means often operating outside of mainstream, but what happens if your artform doesn’t fit neatly in a traditional practice? What if your creativity doesn’t even have a name?

Be entertained by three creatives whose work defies the mainstream as they take you through what it takes to do what very few others are doing. Join us for Ladybeard (streamed live from Japan), a cross-dressing, wrestling, heavy metal singer, Trent Holbrook a designer, and YouTuber under the name of Miscast Terrain with over 106K subscribers for something that started as a hobby and Maharnia Nube from Dreambolic Art, whose body paint and make-up artistry has expanded into installation and illustration, to hear what they’ve learnt through the highs and lows of working outside the mainstream.

MC – Serena Wong

Serena is currently the Curator for the Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre and has long history of working in the arts and for the arts. Spending years as an independent curator and arts worker in Adelaide, she has experience in a diverse range of creativity and art making, from grassroots organisations to state galleries and everything in between. You’ll often find her championing art and artists, in the gallery talking or hanging art, or discussing her other great passions, food and films.

The artist behind Dreambolic Art, is known as Maharnia.

She began her artistic journey close to 7 years ago, diving into the world of bodypainting. Through many successes and hardships in the early years of her artistic name she quickly learned to be adaptable, she used popular trends of makeup artistry and her body painting to keep her audience entertained and help build a following. Towards the end of 2018 she then branched out into digital concept art and illustration to keep up with the ever changing times in the art scene. Through doing this she was able to slowly bridge the gap between both digital and traditional, making her art appear outside the mainstream, and the evidence of that is what she had recently presented to you at this years Fringe Festival, labelled “Contained Bioluminescence”.
