A solo exhibition by Component.

Component has sampled vintage comic style imagery to create visual comment on modern day technological addiction.
Society has become increasingly dependant on social media as a means of both communication and self promotion.
George Orwell and Albert Einstein both predicted this day would come……….Text, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have become the norm for displaying social interactions and intimate moments for the world to see and make comment on. 
It has not happened unless its on social media.

This is the timelapse from the wall TrustMe recently painted. The true meaning of the wall is to encourage discussion around the protection of our natural environment and the pursuit of technology exploring sustainable models of energy production and consumption.

This artwork has now been used to promote activity and contribution to the discussion through the campaign and website http://www.wishyouwerenthere.org.nz/

Please click and share if you wish Anardarko wasn’t here too.

New wall by TrustMe (follow on Instagram as @oltrustola). 

An ode to summer and our way of life. Earlier in the year I painted a commission based around the idea “we don’t know how lucky we are”. The scary thing is that a lot of the time I think we actually don’t. A repaint of a CC wall in Ponsonby and based on the great postcard artwork featuring places like “Miami!”

Have included a full wall view for context and a frame from the timelapse that Bobot managed to sneak into behind my back.

Happy holidaze!
