About the Artist:
CREATURE CREATURE is an artist duo consisting of Chanel Tang and Ambrose Rehorek based in Melbourne in Australia. They first met at university and ‘flirted through art’ until they formed an official union in 2011 under one name. Creature Creature was chosen from a quote in the 1960’s film A Bucket of Blood; “A Creature is a Creature…or it is an artist!” Since then, they have focused on exhibiting art, mural commissions, street art, design and illustration.
Creature Creature play with the idea of duality, east meets west and the natural world.
