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

Snapshots – Make Your Self At Home – GOODIE – Juddy Roller

Congratulation to my good friend and all round beautiful soul “GOODIE”, as she put up her first solo show at Juddy Roller a few weeks back. I feel these works gave you a little insight in to the mind of the artist, you always take a risk when you expose yourself like this, I think she executed it well. It’s always refreshing to see what the artists come up with in the Juddy Roller space, especially when there is and has been so much talent pass through those doors. So for those that couldn’t make it to the show here

Sorry to hear, dudes.


If you’re in Melbourne, then you’ve probably noticed that its boat party month – it seems that every promoter and club in the city is holding their own little cruise this month!

Standing out from the crowd though, and from the guys over at RTIST – is No Parlay. Sure, its a boat cruise – but it has a cool and unique lineup of DJs. More interesting to us, however, is that it has an extra special component to it that no other boat party has – live art, installations and some of the biggest names in Australian and international graffiti and street art – fuck yeah!

“The collective behind Prahran’s progressive RTIST gallery, RTIST Creative, have curated a unique two-part experience this January that combines street art and some of the city’s best electronic DJs and urban acts.

Beginning with the No Parlay Boat Cruise, a VIP experience departing the Docklands, the RTIST ship will sail the harbor in a day of revelry featuring sets by Kodiak Kid, Perplex, Andee Frost and Galapagoose.

The cruise will join the No Parlay Shed4 Party that boasts an impressive roster of DJs and performers. Headlined by tribal techno force Africa Hitech (UK/AUS), the event features sets by Kid Kenobi, one of Australia’s most successful breakbeat DJs, Ben Browning (Cut Copy), N’FA Jones, One Sixth, DJ Peril, Vida Sunshyne and Congo Tardis #1.

Street artists Sofles, Fintan Magee, Akuzer, Monster, Slicer, Zode, Paris, Porno, Dvate, Rsume, Shem, Jorz and more will transform the walls of the Docklands venue into a living gallery while a unique lighting setup, a first for Australian audiences, will illuminate the Docklands shed.

The No Parlay Boat Cruise and No Parlay Shed4 Party is another multiplatform music and arts experience by RTIST Creative, who work to promote emerging artists as well as Internationally respected DJs.”

Boats, beer, bass and bitchin art – what more could you want from a day out? Get your tickets as soon as you can, they’re selling out fast …
