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

Feature – Meeting Of Styles Melbourne 2016

Well, last weekend was, pure and simply, totally fkn epic. The inaugural Meeting Of Styles Melbourne was held across all of Melbournes most iconic laneways, as well as adding a few new ones. We were in amongst it all and it was one of the best painting events the city had ever seen – and it was entirely self orgnaised, showing the power and potential of the graffiti and street art community in Melbourne to accomplish great things.

From the press release that was sent out:

“The city of Melbourne is now awash with hundreds of new graffiti and street art murals. Over four days in April, Meeting of Styles Melbourne quietly occurred with nearly three hundred of Australia’s leading artists from Melbourne as well as other states, painting walls in various lanes across the city. The artists were not paid, yet they left hundreds of artworks for Melburnians and international tourists to enjoy anytime and at no cost. The artworks could be valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars and will surely generate revenue for the city through the countless people coming in to view the artworks. This was the first time the European event was held in Australia and all concerned have branded it a huge success paving the way for a bigger and better event next year.

The event was totally facilitated by Melbourne based individuals and businesses involved in the local street art scene with most of the locations kept under wraps until after the event – all the walls painted were legal spots and with permission.

After recent negative reports about graffiti in our city, Meeting of Styles Melbourne proved that the graffiti subculture can work harmoniously with both street artists and the public to create a safe event involving all the community.

Melbourne has played host to a variety of “street art” events in the past, but this one was different. Although street art was incorporated into the event, as a true “Meeting of Styles”, the real focus of the three days of painting was on graffiti. As such, the importance of letters and the graffiti culture was recognised, and pushed to the fore in homage to its contribution to the culture of our city – for without its graffiti history, in all its facets, street art would not be such an integral piece of Melbourne’s cultural fabric.

As an unmitigated success, Meeting of Styles Melbourne was a true celebration, and testament, of all styles of art found on our cities walls.

Thank you

Meeting of Styles Melbourne Crew

We have to wholeheartedly agree – the weekend was amazing. We all spent a lot of time cruising around and checking out the art in progress, and just the scale of it and seeing so much go up all at the same time was phenominal. Some of the ocations that were painted included spots like Hosier Lane, Union Lane, Electric Lane, Flinders lane, Blender lane, Lovelands and a bunch of others.
The MOS Melbourne event was organised by Danny aka Duke Grimo who poured countless hours and resources into the organisation and management of the event – have to say, what an absolute legend for all his hard work. He was assisted and also had input from Loop Colours, Blender Studios, Land of Sunshine, Eskis, I Support Street Art, Riff Raff Tattoos, p1xels, the Croft Institute and, of course, us here at Invurt.

Heres some of the best images that David Russell captured from the event – we’ll have a bunch more awesome shots for you from p1xels pretty soon as well.
