Video – 90 Degrees Graffiti @ Jam Factory

Check out this great video that got sent to us the other day – 90 Degree artist Dan Wenn getting down in at the Jam Factory on South Yarras Chapel st – some real nice shit here I must say!

From the Stonnington Review –

“Artist Dan Wenn spent 12 hours transforming a dull wall into an edgy mural—its coloured logo bursting out from a muted streetscape.

“The idea was to do a piece that was good graffiti-wise, but still readable to the public, which is always a challenge,” he said. Read the rest of the article here.

Event & Exhibition – Stay Fly Block Party – Sydney

Just got this one in the mail, and wow, what a lineup in this epically mega femme block party coming up from the crew at aMBUSH Gallery – looking at this list of artists, DJs and other entertainment has me pretty envious of Sydney right now.

"In an industry dominated by male influence, only the toughest, edgiest and most prolific female street artists have a voice. With the launch of new collaborative initiative, the Stayfly Sydney Block Party, all that is about to change.

A battalion of fierce female street artists are carving out a space for themselves – a movement within a movement – and they are set to launch their first strike on the street art boys’ club at an exhibition and party on Friday 20 September at aMBUSH Gallery.

The exhibition will feature works by both local and international female artists, with particular focus on our Australian heroines including Ala Paredes, Alexandra Lederman, Alisha Hinds, Amy Sutho, Atong Atem, Averie Harvey, Ayla the Caveman, Evah, Gunnzel, Josephine Tesauro, Ksenia Ishenko, Ladie Killerz Crew, LadyJ, Lotte Smith, L’Ove Ariel, Maiden, Meghan Byrne, Nikki Vajjas, Opals, Rebecca Murphy, Sally Gottlieb, Sarah Musa, Sear, Zeke’s Lunchbox +Underground Appearance M.I.D


International artists and crews include Dani Dillinger (UK), F.E.M. WRS (USA), Gurls Love Vandal crew (Colombia), HeLa Xact Art (USA), Ladies In Da Game Crew (Poland), Maybe (France), Pam Photos (Italy) and Pekoe (UK).

However, the Stayfly Sydney Block Party is more than just an art exhibition. The event is an all encompassing urban experience, headlined by female hip-hop artists Coda Conduct, Dawn Laird, Femecee, DJ LouLou, Ines, MC Thorn, Mirrah Reflect, Sarah Connor, Shereene, Thraxxy Harlem and Vcee.

The Block Party marks the launch of a new community of passionate women who are defining the girls’ corner of the urban movement and exploring Sydney’s potential as a canvas for like-minded ladies.

Join aMBUSH Gallery this Friday from 5-10pm to welcome Stayfly to the Sydney scene. Complimentary Mountain Goat Beer and Alibi American Whiskey will be served on the night."

Check out a little preview video below, and head on down to the show this Friday night – damn, another show I wish I was in Sydney for!

Snapshots – Paris & Peril – Down By Law – Melbourne

Last night I had the immense fortune to see something that you just don’t see very often (indeed, I don’t think that its ever been seen before from these two guys …).

Two of Melbournes undisputed Kings, Paris and Peril, held a kick ass solo show together down at Revolver, and I fkn loved it. One of the best components of the show were the pieces that they created from old photos of trains that they’d painted in the past – taking the images, placing them on canvas, and then recreating by hand the panels in paint and marker on top of them. Really brilliant idea, actually – and, they were also selling some of their original photography of the trains to boot – which, if you’re an avid aficionado, was a great chance to actually own a nice piece of Melbourne graffiti history. The limited edition Dangerfork print was, as always, fkn rad and nicely done as well.

The only thing that is a shame, is that this show is already gone from the walls, as it was only on for one night … its something I would have loved to have seen over and over again – and if you missed it, man, you really missed out. Massive respect to these two guys for just doing what they do, and doing it fkn grand.

Check out the photos of the pieces below … Big thanks to David Russell for all the shots!

Snapshots – ITN Architects End To End & Hitachis – Collingwood

Our good mate EdinFocus sent us through a bunch of photos of something that had a mass of Melbourne graffiti aficionados talking, and crowding, down at Collingwood over the weekend.

The second part of ITN Architects (following on from The Hive apartments) three part graffiti inspired project, the End To End building envisaged three of Melbournes old  Hitachi cars atop a grand building down at Easey street in Collingwood. An ambitious project that I loved as soon as I heard about it.

I headed down to Collingwood on Sunday to see the first of the trains being lifted up onto the building – and what a sight it was! A huge Hitachi car rolled up into the street, and one of the largest portable cranes I’ve ever seen hoisted it up onto the roof. Come Sunday, the other two cars were also placed up onto the building, where they have created tracks to keep it in place. Absolutely amazing, architect Zvi Belling really has helped to create something grand.

Check out all of EdinFocuses photos below – cheers again to Ed for some dope flicks! Theres a bunch more also over at Dean Sunshines blog.

Also check out the video from Dean Sunshine of the train being lifted – nice.

Now the question is – how long until it gets hit? Will it get hit? Rumour is that the trains are to be painted anyways … god I cant wait to see who they get to do that!!

Exhibition – Seasons of Change Spring – Paris and Peril – Down by Law – Revolver

The latest in this excellent series by Revolver. 2 of Melbourne’s most iconic writers, Paris and Peril take the stage for their 1ST show ever in their 30 years history painting together. Paris and Peril were true pioneers in the Melbourne graffiti scene, always looking for new ways to push their styles, and introduced Melbourne to New York wild style pieces. This should be an excellent show.
