Video & Print Release – Adnate Charity Project

Heard about this just yesterday – our mate Adnate will be putting out one of his first ever hand embellished prints, courtesy of Dangerfork and Juddy Roller. Adnate has become well known around the world for his remarkable murals depicting indigenous peoples, and as this print is a charity release all the money will be going back to the Nitjpurru community up in the NT. On Friday at 1pm AEST, you’ll be able to pick up a copy of it on the Juddy Roller store! You can watch video, and read all about the project, below … “In September 2013, Adnate was personally

Exhibition – MOMENTARIUM – Christopher Hancock – Off The Kerb Gallery

Momentarium is the latest series of work from Christopher Hancock. Following on from his successful show Depressionism earlier in the year, this new body of work sees Hancock moving forward to immerse himself and his artistic processes in the current moment, the now. Leaving behind pre-meditated construction, these works embody a process of applied chance and appreciation for what ‘is’. The artist has developed a harmonious bond between paint and consciousness, allowing both to flow freely into new and exciting places. Who: Christopher Hancock. What:  Momentarium. Where: Off the kerb gallery, 66B Johnston Street, Collingwood. When: Opening night Friday August 7th from

Exhibition – How To Live Forever – Mysterious Al – No Vacancy Gallery

Mysterious Al is a street artist from London, UK. His current solo show ‘How to Live Forever’ is an introspective on leaving a lasting impression on this Earth. On living forever: In Australia, evidence of ancient tribes are all around. ‘How to Live Forever’ documents a secret tribe that co-exists in Melbourne, roaming the city under the cover of night. In this tribe the women are the warriors, they’re where it’s at. “How do you live forever? Through the people you meet and the things you leave behind; be it in museums or on city walls”. The work continues Al’s

Exhibition – NEVER FORGET TO REMEMBER – Adrian Doyle – Dark Horse Experiment – Blender Studios.

NEVER FORGET TO REMEMBER Adrian Doyle Its been three years since controversial artist, Adrian Doyle’s last exhibition. This is a long time for an artist that has had over 20 solo shows. But the Melbourne based urban artist has been busy doing almost everything. In the last three years Doyle has created his own reality show, created large scale public murals, he offended much of the urban art world by painting Rutledge lane Baby blue, and had one of his public art works changed after Doyle painted a portrait of his dad on the cross. More recently he created an

Exhibition – Post Graffiti Pacific – aMBUSH Gallery – Sydney

Some of my favourite kiwi artists are heading down to Oz this week, with another rad group show at aMBUSH Gallery – Post-Graffiti Pacific. Held at the new space that those Sydney legends Bill and have put together “Post–Graffiti Pacific is not just another graffiti exhibition. It’s a statement and a definition – a bold assertion of language, history, culture, expression and the significance of place in art making. Curator Olivia Laita and her line-up of seven leading Post–Graffiti Pacific artists are proposing, with conviction, the dawn of a new movement in art. Post–Graffiti Pacific features the multidisciplinary work of Auckland-based artists

Exhibition – Tipping Point – Theo Robinson – House Of Bricks

Tipping Point Theo Robinson, 2015 The art in Tipping Point is the result of four years of painting, both in the studio and on the street, culminating in my first solo gallery show. This show has been inspired by the aesthetics of minimalism, abstraction and suprematism, as seen through the lens of graffiti, street art and muralism. Over the past four years I have experimented with textures, application methods, shape, design and colour to develop images that have a sense of movement and depth. In each image I aim to capture the dynamic movement associated with the creation of form,

Event – Off The Rails Again – Singapore

Event – Off The Rails Again – Singapore

Last month saw the first part of the Off The Rails event here in Singapore, a great display of music, food, and, of course, some mad painting across the walls of the infamous Railway Corridor near Buona Vista. “We’re going Off The Rails Again! with a vibin’, family-friendly and interactive urban party! Artists from across the region bring a heavy dose of live art to the Corridor while psychedelic, reggae and jungle sounds rock the dancefloor. Grit meets glam as Zentai art and tie-dye create an unexpected fashion experience.” The last event was absolutely off the hook, and more akin

Event – No Parlay – Melbourne

Alas, we have had news that this event has been cancelled …

“Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances this event has had to be cancelled.
All tickets purchased through Eventbrite will be refunded shortly. All tickets purchased through a promoter you will need to contact your promoter for your refund.

We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience.”

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 …
