Two weeks ago, four of Australias best street artists got together to paint a whole bunch of canvases for the 2013 edition of Project 5 up in Sydney, in the fantastic Darling Quarter.
“For the first time in its award-winning history, Project Five was presented in Spring 2013 as a month-long public art activation in partnership with Darling Quarter and as an associated event of Art & About Sydney. Volume Five comprised both an exhibition at the aMBUSH Gallery and Darling Quarter public exhibition space OPEN and a three-day live painting event, both featuring the work of prominent contemporary Australian street artists Adnate (VIC), Jodee Knowles (WA/NSW), Numskull (NSW) and RONE (VIC). Project Five Volume Five also introduced Project Five and a Half, a series of kids’ urban art workshops facilitated over two weeks by World Famous Westsyde.
The workshops explored the fine and street art disciplines of illustration, stencilling, wheat pasting and free hand aerosol painting. Late in October 2013, the works created during the three-day live painting events will be auctioned at Commonwealth Bank Place at an invitation-only event by auction partner Leonard Joel, and all proceeds will be donated to the development of youth arts programs at the Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE). Since the inception of Project Five in 2009, ICE has benefited from over $52,000 in donations from Project Five auctions.”
The event was a massive success, and with all the proceeds from it going to the charity ICE, well, theres nothing better. Adnate, Jodee Knowles, Numskull and Rone all deserve some mad kudos for their work – check it all out in the video below!
