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

Exhibition & Fundraiser – For Syrias Children – Melbourne

Our good mate E.L.K. (Luke Cornish) has been doing a hell of a lot of work in the last few years to advocate the plight of Syria’s children throughout the devastating civil war that’s been going on for way too long. Now,gathering together fiends and some of Australia’s finest street artists and others of that persuasion, he is putting on a huge fundraiser event that,quite frankly, you should support as much as possible.

Well let the release do the talking …

“It’s now been over seven years since what began as a peaceful uprising of the Syrian people, quickly escalated into a catastrophic civil war. 

This war has cost the people of Syria more than most of us could ever imagine, as the suffering is too great to comprehend. Those involved, on both sides of the conflict, have reduced vast areas of Syria to rubble and, with that, hundreds of thousands of innocent Syrians have lost their lives.

The ongoing turmoil that is forced upon the people of Syria is not only revolting; it is immoral, with devastating ramifications. After seven years of this brutal conflict, children are far too familiar with horror and sadness. Most have grown up surrounded by death, destruction and poverty and the hope of leading a peaceful existence is a far-flung, beautiful dream. Across the war-torn nation, many of these children have lost their families; leaving them without love, care and shelter. These are the children that are most vulnerable, that face an unsure future, in a cycle of ongoing suffering: these are the children that need our help. 

It is for this reason that a small group of people have decided to embark on For Syria’s Children, a fundraising project aiming to assist those young Syrians that have been affected so terribly by this relentless conflict. 

Through the auction of works by those artists contributing, along with individual donations received, all funds raised will be allocated directly to a selection of local Syrian organisations, including orphanages, hospitals and on-the-ground health care services, spread across a number of Syria’s most heavily devastated cities. 

Join us at Besser Space in Collingwood on Thursday the 28th September for the first ‘For Syria’s Children’ Fundraising art exhibition.”
