Snapshots – Spectrum – Senekt – Backwoods Gallery

Last week saw my good friend and very talented artist Kenta “Senekt”who had a solo show called Spectrum at Backwoods Gallery. I was really impressed with the progression of his latest works, having watched his style over the last three years since moving over from Japan. I must say its been an absolute pleasure getting to know Kenta and becoming good friends, even though there was a huge language barrier, thankfully my good friend Luke Mcmanus speaks fluent Japanese. Check out the photos below I captured for those who were unable to make it to the show.

Interview – Sam Yong

Sam Yong is one of those artists who I have followed for a while now, but have never really had a chance to find out more about. I first came across his work back in 2014 at the Analogue/Digital conference, where he was giving a talk as a part of the “Next Gen” artists talks alongside Carla McRae and Loretta Lizzio. As his work was projected upon the massive screen, I couldn’t help but be in slight awe at all the detail and macabre beauty within them. After that, beyond following his work on various social media, the next chance I had

Snapshots – Clockwise – Group Exhibition – S.T.K Art Spaces

If you didn’t get a chance to see the Clockwise group-show at S.T.K art space, this awesome line up of artists was curated by the lovely Filitsa Giannapoulos. This show featured a broad range of artists each bringing their own unique style, from Blek Le Rat to Conrad Bizjak to Rus Kidd and many more from Melbourne’s amazingly talented landscape. Check out the pics from the show below, hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Interview – Brolga

There is a long list of artists who have made their way over to New York City from our Australian shores, seeking what everyone else does in that big city across the seas – a chance to be inspired and create in one of the worlds most cosmopolitan environments. Brolga is one of these artists, who, after leaving the Northern Territory, travelled the world for some time before finally settled into the city he now calls home. With a pop styled aesthetic honed from his graphic design background, Brolga has been making a few waves in recent times. Recently, his Mohammed Ali painting

Through The Lens July 2016 – David Russell Photography

Hey guys it may be wet and cold but that doesn’t stop Melbourne artist’s from churning out some pretty dope art, wether on a wall or canvas July saw artist Cam Scale pull off a ripper of a show at Juddy Roller. Dvate and the guys smashed out a nice wall at the top of High street, Clifton Hill featuring pieces by Dvate, sigs, Putos, Askem, Sage, Porno and Ling. I also spent a bit of time out at night capturing the art under the cover of darkness bringing it to life using my two favourite torches the Led Lenser

Sunshines Melbourne Street Art & Graffiti Top 10 – July 2016

It’s not easy finding the best ten pieces around the city from month to month, but thats what Dean Sunshine tries to do for us in an un-ceasing survey of the best of Melbourne street art and graffiti. In this, believe it or not the 64th edition of his Top 10, Dean has chosen some of the best pieces that we’re seen yet! Of course, top tens are always subjective, but we do think that he’s nailed it this month! With work from all across the city, featuring Adnate to Al Stark, Hancock and Ape Seven and so many others, its a wonder

Snapshots & Video – The Fresh Hood – Preston

There are a whole bunch of rad things going up around Preston these days, its turning into one of the cooler spots in Melbourne, to be honest. The Fresh Hood is no exception, taking an older building at the Preston markets and turning it into a cornucopia of cool shops and eateries, surrounded by some dope ass new artwork! Selected and curated out all by our man Dean Sunshine (with support from Loop, Crag of the Space Agency, Dulux Australia and Duke Style) this is an awesome new addition to the many gorgeous walls around Preston … check out the photos

Through The Lens – June 2016 – David Russell Photography

It may be cold in Melbourne right now but that hasn’t deterred artists like Smug who managed to smash out two amazing murals organised by Juddy Roller, one over three storeys depicting his grandparents. Roa was in town and didn’t disappoint with his show at Backwoods Gallery, featuring Australian wildlife painted on all manner of objects he collected while in Melbourne, all from hard rubbish found around Clifton Hill and surrounding suburbs. Adnate also had an exhibition at the Metro Gallery featuring his amazing works depicting members from the indigenous community, its great to see an artist use their skills

Video – Shida – Bombing HK & Seoul

The man Shida went on a bit of a trip to Hong Kong and Seoul recently, and got a bunch of video of some of his exploits on the streets there – a nice little piece of a man doing what he loves, and doing it with his expressive style – Theres really something to be said about bombing with a brush(s)!

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.
