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

Exhibition – Speed Demons – Sydney

Okay, given the title of this show, we assume it may revolve around cars, jets, rockets and anything else that pumps up the speed and makes shit FAST. “TeeZee brings you ‘Speed Demons!!’ – a group exhibition of speed, power, carnage and progression. Nine Sydney artists tackle ideas of force and power as an innate aspect of the human condition. Join us on the 21st of April for opening drinks and see these artists put the pedal to the metal / turn it up to 11 / cross the red line.” Cool concept for this group show up in Sydney,

Live Art & Event – Brisbestfest – Brisbane

Damn, Brisbane got it going on this weekend! Brisbestfest is a big assed elebration of all that is art and culture in Brisvegas – and if you read down a little, you’ll see the lineup, and know why the hell I wish I could be there!!

"BRISBESTFEST: Celebrating Brisbane’s World-Renowned Street Art & Culture – Block Party Style!

Brisbestfest is an exciting new “mini-fest” celebrating Brisbane’s vibrant urban arts scene with a day of live graffiti, hip hop & soul music, street food, a stunning art exhibition and more.  The event kicks off at 2pm and runs until 8pm on 29 June at Loading Dock Café and adjoining car park, West End.

The block-party style event will feature music from The Optimen, Bankrupt Billionaires, Desmond Cheese, DJ Butcher, MKO, Rainman, Samedi Sound System and more, plus an exclusive “Brisbane-themed” group exhibition and live, large-scale mural art from Fintan Magee, Cezary Stulgis, Ellen Stapleton, David Don, Guido van Helten, Treaz, Sam Hillcoat, Magnus McTavish, Elana Mullaly, Ankia Lister, Drapl and other world-class local talent.  There will also be a boutique beer and wine bar with all profits being donated to Brisbane Youth Service – a vital community service supporting Brisbane’s homeless and at risk youth.

What started as a group of artists seeking to paint the perfect inner-city wall has quickly transformed into a big event involving some of Brisbane’s most celebrated talent.  Co-promoter Kel Timmons says, “Brisbane breeds some of the best musicians and artists in the world.  Most leave eventually, but those who persist will tell you it’s because of the extraordinary people this city breeds and the undercurrent of raw creativity and social conscious Brisbane is world-famous for.  This event is basically an excuse to show off this amazing talent, raise money for charity, and throw a mad party in Brisbane’s glorious winter sun!”

Several Brisbestfest artists fly to Copenhagen just days after the event where they have been commissioned to paint a 100mtr wall at Roskilde Festival.  Other exhibiting artists have also been making waves internationally.  Award-winning artist Ellen Stapleton has returned to Brisbane (temporarily) after recent exhibitions in Amsterdam and Barcelona where she received accolades for her profoundly beautiful work.  Large-scale muralists Fintan Magee and Guido van Helten are also being praised for their impressive murals which are splashed all over the world – from Iceland to Los Angeles.  Google any Brisbestfest artist and you will be inundated with hundreds of incredible images from amazing artists we can proudly call our own.

Brisbestfest provides a platform for our world-class talent to perform and exhibit in their hometown. It draws an import view of street culture and our city’s identity and celebrates Brisbane’s exceptionally talented and passionate street artists and hip-hop, soul & roots musicians.

Brisbestfest is an all ages event and kicks off at 2pm until 8pm on 29 June at 2 Edmonstone St., West End (adjacent to Coles). Tickets are available through moshtix.com.au or on the door from just $10 +bf."
