Exhibition – Deams – In The Fold – Melbourne

We’ve been following Melbourne based artist, and founding member of AWOL , Deams, for many years now and its been an absolute pleasure watching his style progress over this time. Every time we see a new show from him, its another evolution of his style, and a beautiful evolution  at that. This week, Deams has yet another solo show opening up in Melbourne at Backwoods gallery – read on for all the info … “We are intrinsically bound by our shared experiences as we move along uncertain paths. ‘In The Fold’ seeks to illuminate the nature of this human journey by

Video – Laneways Of Melbourne

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 – Speed Demons – Sydney

Okay, given the title of this show, we assume it may revolve around cars, jets, rockets and anything else that pumps up the speed and makes shit FAST. “TeeZee brings you ‘Speed Demons!!’ – a group exhibition of speed, power, carnage and progression. Nine Sydney artists tackle ideas of force and power as an innate aspect of the human condition. Join us on the 21st of April for opening drinks and see these artists put the pedal to the metal / turn it up to 11 / cross the red line.” Cool concept for this group show up in Sydney,

Snapshots & Recap – Meeting Of Styles Melbourne 2016

Well, last weekend was, pure and simply, totally fkn epic. The inaugural Meeting Of Styles Melbourne was held across all of Melbournes most iconic laneways, as well as adding a few new ones. We were in amongst it all and it was one of the best painting events the city had ever seen – and it was entirely self orgnaised, showing the power and potential of the graffiti and street art community in Melbourne to accomplish great things. From the press release that was sent out: “The city of Melbourne is now awash with hundreds of new graffiti and street art

Thursday Transmissions – ROA, Atlas & Scrawl

Well, we’re pretty sure that this weeks Transmissions beats all the rest and is the largest we’ve done yet – in sheer number count anyways! With so many videos we’ve seen this week that piqued our interest, we wont delay – get watching and enjoy it all as much as we have …

As he’s one of our favourite artists, and as we helped out Art Series Hotels in their time up at Cockatoo Island, well, we have to start out with this video showcasing ROA at the event – love his work.

CDH was in the news last week, and, we’re sure you would agree, but removing this piece of implemented art, which actually added to the piece and made it quite amazing, was a fair wrong turn for Melbourne City Council – why not leave it as it was? It was pretty damn brilliant … read more of this story behind the sculpture on CDHs website.

On the Outpost Project tip – Art Nation had a special segment on the event, and if you haven’t been or haven’t thought much of it, this’ll probably make you want to go.

A little more on Outpost, as ArtSeries also did a piece a few days ago on the Oi! You! Exhibition – and there’s a bit of an interview in here with George Shaw, who put it together …

Numskull has the opening of his "Mixed Messages" exhibition tonight, and here’s a great sneak peek preview of the show.

We’re still seeing a lot of stuff turning up from D*Faces visit to us last month, but this is a more than excellent book ending to a grand visit! Check out the Bright Things TV segment on the artist …

At ten minutes, its pretty long – but this is an entire walkthrough and look at all the work up in the Pastemoderism 3 show – so much artwork …

They’ve been working on this for a while now, but Kaff-eine, Precious Little, Tig-tab and Blacklodge have been working on a pretty cool urban exploration show that’ll be on in January – we have the feeling that this is going to be something really quite extraordinary.

As we mentioned yesterday, Anthony Lister was in Sydney for Outpost as well – and this is a preview of the piece that’s launching today, Rainbow City Gaze. Nice.

Here’s a great time lapse of a recent piece by Makatron – love it.

Max Berry and Mark Alsweiler also have a show on this week, and this is preview of it – All Things Lost.

We’d be remiss if we didn’t put this up – Acclaim Magazine are celebrating their 25th issue soon, and they had Ken Done do the cover! Between Ken Done and Dropbears, we just can’t think of anything more fittingly Aussie.

Ironlak posted this up today of the Deer Duck Bistro being painted up in Brisbane by the Anomyart crew.

Lastly for this week, something quite cool – Tanja Jade, who opened a show at Backwoods last week, and Simon Peters put together this cute little cartoon – pretty funny stuff!

Well, that’s all we have again! Don’t forget to browse through previous weeks, and, if you have a cool video you want us to include – send it through!
