Tristan Fidler

Tristan Fidler blabs about movies; this can be relied upon. A UWA graduate, he completed a PhD on music video directors, so people describe him as a 'Doctor of Music Videos' but this is not medically accurate.

When not reciting lines from Big Trouble in Little China or Ghostbusters to anyone who'll listen, he spends time editing a zine, I Am Still in Yesterday's Clothes, and contributing to a podcast, Heavy Movie Parking Lot. Generally, an affable sap who likes to write stuff and draw things.

24 unique prints, $25 each.

For Mini Art Mart, Tristan has compiled a series of portraits of film directors. Prints are A4 and are on 300gsm card. Do you like the modern, comic styling of Judd Apatow? Are you into the Scorsese classics? Or perhaps you like it when conventions meet the unconventional, in the work of Jon Waters? Whatever your taste in cinema, there's someone just for you.

Rachael Kuan

Rachael is a librarian by day, and spends the rest of her waking hours finding distractions from sleep. She plays guitar in the instrumental rock band smRts, and makes zines, runs zine workshops and a letter writing club as part of the Perth Zine Collective. Rachael is particularly interested in typewriters, half-frame cameras and toy instruments.

Rachel and her works.

For this exhibition at Mini Art Mart, Rachael has put together a series of original collages. They consist of vintage pictures and Victorian line drawings on A4 card, plus one shadowbox type collage in a frame.

First Class Mail, $60.
