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

Another April goes by and Melbourne is starting the slow slide into the winter months – but that doesn’t stop jack shit, with everyone still out and about painting a huge mass of rad Melbourne graffiti and street art. As always, Dean Sunshine it out and about capturing as much of it as he can, and here is his pick for all the rad shit he saw in April! Check out all the shots below! 1. Vexta – Melbourne 2.

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

We loved seeing all the pics form up in Benalla the other week, and it was great to see this festival continue to grow our in regional Victoria – and they’ve just put out the video for it all! “Wall to Wall festival in Benalla, Victoria is the only major street art festival in the state.

Event & Live Art – The Projects – Sydney

With the Peoples Market recently launched here in Melbourne (we’ll get to that soon) we’re really glad to see that the guys from Lo-Fi (do you ever actually sleep, dudes?) are putting on another great event with the same touch of “market come sart come party” vibe as the PM, with The Projects launching this Sunday in Sydney.

“The team behind Lo-Fi Collective and the refurbished Toxteth Hotel have added another string to their bow at The Vic Hotel in Enmore. The Projects takes place in The Vic’s abandoned car park and emerges as a multipurpose creative space and beer garden.

While rock ‘n’ roll pub The Vic pays homage to live music history, The Projects space propels their unused lot into thecontemporary as the inner west’s unofficial home of graffiti, street art and creative happenings – right next door to one ofthe city’s most authentic venues.

A giant wall at 20 metres long by eight metres high will be painted every fortnight by graffiti and street artists including Sofles, Roach, Pudl, Numskull and special guests.

Abandon your expectations and enter their eclectic space to take part in art workshops, live music, an open-air cinema, a half basketball court and culinary options like rotisserie meats. With the majority of these events taking place on theweekends The Projects is designed as place you can hang out all day long.

With a nod to Enmore’s bike culture, Spokes People will host a Bike swap meet with vintage and classic bikes and parts to sell and set up. The Designer Markets, curated by Lo-Fi Collective, will peddle the latest in hipster handicraft including terrariums, jewellery and eco candles.

This hive of activity is the perfect setting for cold frothies and top times this summer. Bring your canine and your kids – it’s dog and family friendly.”

Looks like it’ll be a fkn cool day,  providing a little bit of everything we love – we’d want to be there for sure.
