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.

Exhibition – Ink Dots Black Spots 2 – Melbourne

 

Last years Ink Dots Black Spots was epic – and its that time again, where some of Melbournes most amazing tattoo artists get together to offer their works as prints, and not any old prints – Dangerfork prints! Fifteen tattoo studios gathering together in an almighty display … it’s all for a good cause, too – here‘s some more info …

"In 2012 Ink Dots Black Spots inaugural year the exhibition was born from the idea to share artwork from numerous artists to their fans & the public, whilst contributing to those of us who support the fight against cancer.
In 2013 Ink Dots Black Spots continues with a similar goal to expose great artwork to an audience which loves great creativity. Our goal this year is to give to the RSPCA & generate a donation matching or hopefully bettering last years $5,000 contribution to the Cancer Council Victoria.

Ink Dots Black Spots 2 group art exhibition launches on the 28th November 2013 at The Aviary in Abbotsford. The show is open to the public on the opening night from 6pm. Ink Dots Black Spots will be open until 5th December 2013.


Here is an outline of our objectives & profile of how the exhibition has been planned & what is intended.

Artwork

18" x 24" illustrations created by screenprinting in mono colour. All artworks are original & are created with chosen media by each individual tattoo artist. Each unique screenprint is signed & numbered in an edition of twenty five. These artworks have been created specifically for the event Ink Dots Black Spots 2.

Process

Our partner in production, Dangerfork, screenprints the entire exhibition. An experienced team whom produced our prints for Ink Dots Black Spots exhibition in August 2012. We are very excited to collaborate again on this project. One of each print will be framed, displayed & for sale at the exhibition. The remaining 24 prints of the edition will be available for purchase. The artworks will also be available in a simple black on white format booklet.

If you want some great artwork & a chance to support a worthy cause then make sure you save some time & money & join us at Ink Dots Black Spots 2.

Each print is priced at $85."

I seriously fucking loved this exhibition last year, and if that one was any indication, this one is going to be … what’s a bigger word than epic?

Legendary.
