Interview – Knock

I first started seeing Knocks work around Melbourne some time ago, periodically appearing in run down abandos and a variety of walls sprawled across the city – immediately, there was just something that drew me to his work, whether it was the seemingly ordered chaos of his pieces, or the strange and pensively creepy character work that peered out from broken bricks, pinpoint eyes mirroring the decay around them. Like other artists who choose to follow this type chaotic expression, Knocks work is infused with a variety of influences from pop culture, to the surreal and macabre – his often

Snapshots – Everfresh Studio – Open day 2015

Due to the popularity of last years open day, Everfresh decided to open it’s doors again for one day only and allow the public to walk through the studio and see the artists and their work up close and personal. For many people this would be the first time they would get to meet the artists who’s work they had seen all over Collingwood, Fitzroy and destinations around the world. This was also an opportunity to purchase some of their amazing work at a very reasonable price, so for those of you who were unable to make it down, here

Resident Photographer for Invurt and our good friend, David Russell is FINALLY having his 1st exhibition – and were super excited to share it with you.  I wrote this for his event page on Facebook:  “I first met David Russell in Hosier lane in 2012, I’d seen him a hundred times in various streets, lanes and at walls all over Melbourne before, but this time I decided to say hello.

Exhibition – Elle – Lucy Lucy – Juddy Roller

E L L E Elle is a collective representation of the universal feminine archetype. As a woman, She is femininity divided. We glimpse her many facets through her various portrayals, though the lines that separate her identities are blurred. Each persona, culture and story is enmeshed and intertwined to accentuate the figure they represent; strength, grace, and beauty embodied. Lucy’s work attempts to capture the evolving folklore of the feminine, exploring the diversity and boundaries of heritage. Whether a sovereign queen, a mystic sorceress, a youthful muse, or a charismatic lady, all share in the art and privilege of being


Event – Everfresh Open Studio – Collingwood

When you are talking about Melbourne street art – it’s hard not to mention the name Everfresh. The Everfresh crew have been an institution an integral part of street art in our city since day one. Funny, as I’m writing this from Tokyo I can see their stickers everywhere from their last visit.  Everfresh studios in Easey st was for ten years and when it closed a couple of years ago, I was rather sad. The place was like a museum for street art and graffiti. Even though that was the end of an era it was also the start

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!
