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

Sunshines Top 10 Melbourne Graffiti & Street Art – February 2017

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

Feature Event & Live Art – Aerosol Alley Launch Party – Melbourne

Some of you may remember back in January that we posted a big assed painting session in Windsor that we helped to produce – at the time, I’d jokingly said that as the laneway didn’t have any official name, that it should be called "Aerosol Alley" … well, I guess its no longer a joke, and there’s going to be a big launch party this weekend to celebrate the project, and you’re all fucking invited!

Since Wayne Tindall started painting in an old laneway behind his studio in Windsor (Melbourne) back in 2009, Aerosol Alley has since grown into a beautiful example of what a community of artists can do when presented with an opportunity to remake a disused urban environment. After beginning to paint several murals in the laneway on his own, Wayne then invited a bunch of artists along to help him out – it was at that stage that we here at Invurt became involved in the project, helping to co-ordinate three sessions of painting by street artists over the course of two years.

With the entire project having been filmed by Wayne Tindall, the launch party will also include a special preview screening of part of the documentary that was filmed of the project. Artists such as Heesco, Hancock, Kaff-eine, Meggs, Unwell Bunny, Facter, Jack Douglas, Pierre Lloga, Porno, S4beth, Mishap, Dopio, Dvate, Gent, Askem, Dcat, Conrad Bizjak, Eleven, Phoenix, Shida and many, many more have all, over the course of several painting sessions been both interviewed and filmed, and a full length doco of it all is in the works.


You can check out a preview of the documentary below – there will be an extended version shown at the event!

Since the New Years painting session, several other artists, such as Shida and Kaff-eine ,have also joined in on the project, and quite a few other pieces have gone up – its turned into an amazing public art space, where before it was truly just a run down laneway. As you can tell, we’re just a little bit proud to have been a part of it, and grateful for the opportunity, and all the support, that Wayne Tindall and the building owners provided!

Starting from 2pm on the day, an amazing lineup of live music will also herald the event – with performances from Psyde Projects, Mish’Chief, Ryan Knowles, Andre Le, Vogue and Jay Tindall. As an added bonus, the whole thing will be broadcast live via Kiss FM.

Mysterious Al, Unwell Bunny and Shida will all also be painting live at the event. As a special bonus, Wayne Tindall will also be launching his new gallery "Chaotic" in conjunction with the event. The gallery launch will feature a 101 Life Drawing event, as well as the launch of a fantastic new "Outdoor Gallery" that Wayne and David Russell have been working on over the past few months.

The Aerosol Alley launch party is proudly supported by Chaotic Gallery, Boywolf, Invurt, David Russell Photography, Kiss Fm, Print Express, RedTV, Chapel St, Tyranny Of Distance, The Wolf & I and Sticky Beak.

Head down there this weekend to check it all out for yourself, see some mad live art, and brock out to some rad live music.

This is real Melbourne street art, at its finest!!
