CREATURE CREATURE is an artist duo consisting of Chanel Tang and Ambrose Rehorek. 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 to exhibiting throughout Melbourne 

interstate with 4 major solo shows under their belt.

Both with a background in fine art and graphic design, their work is a blend of both these practices with strong historical influences, mixed with a love of street art and illustration. Creature Creature play with the idea of duality, east meets west, and the natural world. A dragon and Unicorn are the pair’s alter egos that appear commonly in their art.


Born in Adelaide, Ambrose has a Degree in Visual Arts from the University of South Australia. 

Chanel was born in Wellington, New Zealand, moved to Australia in 1998 where she did her Degree 

in Fine Art at Monash University. They met doing a Graduate Diploma in Graphic Design at RMIT.


Some of our clients include City of Stonnington, City of Maribyrnong, City of Yarra, City of Hurstville, Wyndham City Council, John Holland construction, Melbourne Water, AUS Post, Pant Active, AS Colour and Cotton On.
