SHAG Weekend

Me and new best friend Josh Agle

Any committed retro-loving, cocktail-drinking guy or gal would be a devotée of the talented über-hip artist Josh Agle, aka SHAG, and his world of stylish minxes and debonair dudes. There’s a fab opportunity right now to see Josh’s paintings and rare prints in the Birds & the Beasts Exhibition at the Breadbox Gallery in Northbridge, brought to Perth by the great people at Outré Gallery.

Shag himself appeared on Friday night at the swinging cocktail party, on the first leg of his 3-city Australian tour. And then obligingly signed books on Saturday despite the torrential rain.

After meeting Josh on Friday night at the cocktail party, we had the pleasure of showing him around our own slice of mid-century mod here in Floreat. We swung by a few of Floreat’s preserved 50s dwellings, and meandered along our gorgeous coastline to lunch at Soda Café at Trigg beach – enjoying a sampling of our local brew, Little Creatures Pale Ale.

Josh’s vivid sartorial style dispelled the greyness of the cloudy day, as he sported a fantastic Hawaiian shirt and green plaid jacket – swiiinging!! – and yes, he was wearing pants!

Josh kindly signed a couple of our Shag books back at the Floreat pad and later visited Hula Bula Bar with the Outré crew. He might be a jet-setter, but he’s unaffectedly cool and an out-and-out great guy. See his show while you can! Closes April 13.
