Snapshots – OBEY – Shepard Fairey – Vivid – Sydney

Our man Dean Sunshine was up in Sydney last week to cehck out Vivid Sydney – specifically, he was taking a bit of time checking out the Shepherd Fairey exhibition, Printed Matters, and mural that he was painting as a part of the event. This was a bit of the blurb from the show: “Iconic American artist Shepard Fairey blurs the boundaries of art and design. His unique style is instantly recognised in exhibitions and walls around the world. His body of work includes the OBEY GIANT art project, the Barak Obama HOPE campaign, and this year’s ubiquitous ‘We The

VR Snapshots – Immersive Media Lounge – State Library of Victoria

A few weeks ago Invurt was involved in creating the Immersive Media Lounge at Melbourne Knowledge Week 2017, hosted at the State Library of Victoria. The event was an awesome success with hundreds of people coming through the doors across the week, and some very cool artwork being created. I was pretty impressed with what the artists came up with (Senekt, Facter, Conrad Bizjak and RASHEE).  Invurt and Phoria had the HTC Vive rocking Google Tilt Brush against a Green screen – Hollywood Styles, resulting in  a mixed reality display combining what the artist was doing against the world they

Video – Wall To Wall Festival 2017 – Benalla

Another Wall To Wall has been and gone, but they’re got the video out, and it looks totally rad! “The Wall to Wall Festival is the largest regional street art festival in Australia. And also one of the most innovative community development initiatives on a national level. This year it hosted 35 internationally acclaimed artists from Australia and around the world, and attracted thousands of curious participants and observers from near and far. It’s changing the face of Benalla, one wall at a time. And changing a whole community’s identity, while it’s at it. ” Man, it’d be great to

Through The Lens March 2017 – David Russell Photography

March has passed by leaving some pretty fresh art on the streets of Melbourne once again, the standout for me would definitely be the work of Rone in the now demolished Fairfield paper mills. The big Sinch tag rates as one of my favourites as well go big or go home as they say, also see some new works by Heesco, Choq,  Jason Parkers lovely portrait of Juddy Roller artist Goodie at Off The Kerb Gallery. Stay tuned for next month as Im going to the Benalla Street art festival over three days, this looks to be the biggest one

Snapshots – The Light In Us – Isolde – Off The Kerb Gallery

Congratulations to Isolde on her first solo exhibition at the iconic Off The Kerb gallery in Collingwood, run by the ever busy and beautiful Shini. I would have to say the work of Isolde would definitely be some of my favourite paste ups I have seen on the streets of Melbourne, in her many art covered lanes. Isolde’s work always stood out, her powerful images amongst the rust and ruin of some grungy laneway, this is where her work shines. For those that couldn’t make it down to Off The Kerb, I managed to garb some photos while having my

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!
