To start off the week, we have a bit of cool news on an event that will be happening as a part of Art & About in Sydney next weekend.
On Saturday 22nd September, at 1pm, Art Series Hotels will be playing host to the “Art Series Conversation Corner” in which they will be presenting a whole bunch of panels with creative industry types, as well as several well known artists including Stormie Mills, Anthony Lister, Vincent Fantauzzo, Paul Davies and Sarah Goffman.
Our part of the news? Well, I’m pretty damn excited because I”ve been invited up to Sydney speak on the “Art Outside The Gallery Panel” alongside the aMBUSH guys (Bill Dimas and John Wiltshire,), Stormie Mills, Anthony Lister and Rachel Healy from City Of Sydney. After our talk, the artist will be giving a talk on working in the industry, and then I’ll be doing some live painting with Takie and Justin Feuerring!
Read on for all the info, as well as the timetable …
“On Saturday 22 September, Melbourne’s Art Series Hotel Group is bringing together some of the country’s most exciting contemporary artists, street artists and designers at The Art Series Hotels Conversation Corner as part of this year’s Art & About Sydney.
Winner of the Archibald Prize People’s Choice Award Vincent Fantauzzo, Stormie Mills, Anthony Lister and local artist Paul Davies, will be just a few of the artists who will be sharing their experiences about making art their career across two talks at 1pm and 2pm at warehouse gallery space 74-76 Oxford Street.
The talks will be hosted by Jane O’Neill, in-house art curator for Art Series Hotels and operator of Art Aficionado Tours.
O’Neill explains; “The Art Series Hotel Group has proven to be a major supporter of the arts following the opening of three hotels which pay tribute to some of Australia’s most well-known artists – The Cullen, The Olsen and The Blackman. The initiation of this free event affirms the Art Series commitment to the broader art community and we’re looking forward to some feisty, funny conversations about contemporary art with the Sydney public.”
From 3pm, the venue will be transformed into the Red Bull Beat Suite with live street art
demonstrations and installations from Takie, Justin Feuerring and Facter among other street artists to be announced.
Red Bull will be serving up some not to be missed cocktail creations and guests can continue the conversation to the sounds of the Red Bull Beat Suite.

We’re big fans of Art Series hotels and what they do, they have worked pretty hard at facilitating some really cool things surrounding the art scene (contemporary, street, and emerging) in Australia. The day will have some great words from a bunch of great people, and artists, involved in the street art and creative community with tunes and live art to boot!
We’re really excited about this trip up there, and looking forward to a great weekend with all you Sydney crew – along with all the other amazing events going on in Sydney, its gunna be a mad weekend.
