Video – Guido Van Helten – Portrait Of An Artist

This rad video just got released, and its another gorgeous production from Selina Miles, covering some amazing art by the man Guido Van Helten whilst he painted a bunch of cool shit up in Iceland. Guido is at the forefront of all that is great about Australian street art, and Selinas Miles videos are always a pleasure to watch. “In August 2015, film director Selina Miles travelled with artist Guido van Helten to Akureyri – a town on the north coast of Iceland, to produce a very unique work. This 6-minute film documents their journey, and offers insight into the

Interview – Marguerite Tierney

These days, it’s always a pleasure when I stumble across a Melbourne artist that for some reason or another, I haven’t seen much of before. Over the years I’ve interviewed and written about (and just generally appreciated) hundreds of artists on this site, whether they’re painters, illustrators, comic book artists or those who are truly immersed in the Melbourne street art scene – so whenever I discover someone new, even if they’re not “new” per se, I tend to get a little excited. For a while there, it really did feel like the ranks of people painting on walls and

Feature – Meeting Of Styles Philippines 2016

Without a doubt Meeting Of Styles Philippines was an awesome event. The MOS series of events are, themselves, some of the funnest things around that you can do with a bunch of other wall painting enthusiasts, and after fifteen years it just keeps getting better and bigger as it expands to different regions. It’s one of the best graffiti events in the world, hands down. At the beginning of April, I headed down to Melbourne for two days for MOS Melbourne, then, in mid-April, I found myself up in Kuala Lumpur for MOS Malaysia – so, it only felt right that I head up to Manila

In a follow up to our recap of Meeting Of Styles Melbourne, Mick Russell posted up this video of a few of the laneways of Melbourne that were showcased in the event, with a nice little interaction and map in amongst it. Though it doesnt show all of the lanes that were done, unfortunately, its a pretty cool hyperlapse of some of the main ones! The Melbourne street art and graffiti scenes are blessed to have spots like this, when other countries struggle to get legal walls – though, we always need more … enjoy the video! “Taking a tour of

Feature – Meeting Of Styles Malaysia 2016 – Kuala Lumpur

It was Friday evening by the time I arrived in KL, I’d finished work and hopped on a quick plane over from Singapore – it was like flying from Melbourne to Canberra, straight up, straight down. After catching the high speed express train into the city, then a connecting monorail to Bukit Bintang station, I’d thrown down my bags and walked the short way over to near Jalan Imbi where everyone was gathered. District Shop and Gallery is at the heart of graffiti in Kuala Lumpur – and the organisers of Meeting Of Styles Malaysia 2016. Down a side street,

Interview – Steve Cross

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Steve Cross for a very long time, and in that time I’ve always found him to be a remarkably affable, courteous and downright talented and passionate man. Having seen his work on walls, in group shows, as tattoos on friends and sketches posted up on social media, I have had more than a familiarity with his work – yet its only really now (even given his incredible body of work so far), when Ive seen a catalogue of his upcoming show, The Black Ocean, that I realise I’ve caught a fleeting glimpse at the full scope of his

Exhibition – Angels See In Sepia – Fletcher Andersen – Melbourne

There isn’t much to say that hasn’t already been said on the subject of the man and his plan! Fletcher Andersen (Facter), Founder, Editor, and Director of, well, here, Invurt.com, dude behind the curtain on so many of its artistic off-shoots, and our (the Invurt crews) favourite ‘boss man’ artist is bringing us something really special this October … his second solo show, Angels See In Sepia.
 
Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.’ Arthur C Clake
“Based on the thematic muse of Wim Wenders seminal movie Der Himmel über Berlin (”Wings Of Desire”), Fletcher Andersen brings his second solo show, Angels See In Sepia, to Melbourne’s Rancho Notorious Gallery.

Having produced a unique collection of portraiture, Fletcher delves into a combination of influences that have driven his creative passions for over twenty years – science fiction, arthouse films, street art and technology. Combining an inimitable illustrative style with visages of natural beauty, the images within Angels See In Sepia depict returned angels of the Singularity, and their restoration to mortality after having relinquished their transhuman, digital heaven. From a universe of plenty, to a world of raw, unedited emotion, they are freed from the “shackles of immortality” to face a long forgotten "natural” world; one far removed from of their solipsistic experiences.

As the culmination of years of exploring these themes within his writing and art, the works within Angels See In Sepia are an experiment in the combination of hand drawn, illustrated imagery, and digital realism. The results of this process is a unique, mixed media collection of works that attempts to bridge the past, present and future of both art, as well our technologically evolving humanity."

The crew here at Invurt are really proud of our ‘art father’. We support Fletch as to he strives to continuously produce his art, incredibly, amongst all the stuff he does both here on the website, as well as on the many projects he has been working on, and we hope you will to. Word is, that there will also be some special guests doing some collaborative pieces with him for the show, bonus!

So come celebrate all things Angelic, all things Sepia, all things Spring time, and, also importantly, hot chicks! Now that’s what I’m talkin about, be there!
