Adnate, god damn. There is a reason why the man is one of our favourite artists, and why he is sought out by so many to put paint up on their walls – all you need to know as to why this is so is, to watch this video.
Another awesome video, again, by Michael Danischewski – with the assistance of Ken Walsh producing, motion control video capture from Syrp and beats by Temple Step.
Check it out below, a great collaboration with Srrike, Red Bull and Adnate – and if you’re in North Ryde, go see it for yourself at Strike bowling bar!
I am obviously a massive fan of all the guys down at the Arts Hole. I love their work, both individually and collectively – and even though I was pretty damned tired last weekend, I took myself off to their first group show “After Dark” last Saturday night, and Im damned glad I did.
A lot of great work, a whole bunch of great people in attendance – this is the thing that great group shows are made of. Oh, and if you didnt see this? Arts Hole residents Chasing Ghosts have their event tomorrow night with That One Show – the Melbourne street art awards exhibition, so you should go check it out.
Anyways, in the meantime, take a look at all the greatness that was last Saturday night!
Last week I had the chance to get down to the 6mod opening – a show put on by a bunch of artists, inlcuding Marian Machismo, FKN-MAD, Ruskidd and Carlotta Phelan.
It was a pretty interesting affair – the space itself was pretty damn cool, a nice cellar area that I can see has a lot of potential for a space for these kinds of projects. It was a strange mix of people down there, but it all seemed to work – check it all out for yourselves below!
David Russell got down to the opening of Backwoods Galleries latest group show, “A Study Of Eyes” – the second in a series of shows (after the wonderful A Study Of Hands) featuring local and international artists producing work around various parts of the human body.
““A Study Of” is a decade-long project by curator Alexander Mitchell aiming to create an archive of anatomical and artistic studies by the world’s leading contemporary artists. The project was launched last year with “A Study Of Hands.”
This year, Backwoods Gallery will present the second installment,“A Study Of Eyes”, an exhibition consisting of 45 pieces of original artwork based on the eye by some of the world’s leading artists.”
I actually never realised it was a decade long project – talk about epic. Check out all the photos from the most recent iteration below, courtesy of David Russell …
Once again David Russell has put together all of his favourite photos that he’s taken over the past month from around the streets of Melbourne – an absolute fine collection of work in this one, brilliant.
Oh ho ho ho … excuse me, while I get all excited about this one!Once again, the Blender Christmas party has come around, that time of year when all things Franklin St and creative celebrates another massive year of accomplishments by all the artists involved down at one of the cities finest artistic establishment!!
“The Blender Studios Christmas exhibition is an opportunity to celebrate the art and party with the artists of Blender Studios. The hard work and dedication of the artists is evident in this annual event with 13 artists showcasing their work.
The exhibition will be hosted by Dark Horse Experiment and the studios will hold a series of performers and installations. The opening night is sure to be a stunning example of current practice in Melbourne right now. The opening night will include DJs, cutting edge performance artists, traditional works on canvas, live graffiti events, strange objects and dislocated renderings of suburbia.
After ten years the Blender Studios still hold true to the values of research, energy, independence and the solidarity.
With strong links to Melbourne Street Art and some of the most recognised and prolific artists calling the Blender home, the opening exhibition will attract a wide audience.The Blender Studios Christmas Exhibition, accompanied with a party, will open at Dark Horse Experiment on Friday 13th Dec, 2013 from 6 till late.”
I’ve been to the last few Blender Xmas parties, and I can safely say that this is one night on the Melbourne art calendar, and Xmas calendar, that you just can’t miss. Celebrations ahoy – seeyas there!!

After hearing all about it and being excited to see it all, I headed down to Collingwood Gallery last Thursday night to see the launch of Mishaps new jewellery line, Def Lab Jewellery. Beautifully displayed in a way that could only befit work from Mishap, I absolutely loved it – street sense styled work with a flair of graffiti enthused creativity, I can see this new line going a long way.
Check out this mad video that was just released from the show (produced by Dave MSA), and all of my shots below (the video is a hell of a lot better than my shots, that for sure! Haha).
David Russell got down to another abando the other week in outer Melbourne. There is a whole bunch of amazing work by some of Melbournes finest in this one, and its well worth checking out the photos of it all.
Mapping Melbourne brings a collaboration of local fashion label Fame Agenda and Indonesian street artist Darbotz in Fame Agenda X Darbotz. A fashion show featuring models , music and street art, which will burst out of a giant pink box on the steps of the State Library of Victoria for one day only.
Indonesian street artist Darbotz is back after his last visit and show in April this year in Melbourne. He was also one of the many artists featured in Bomb It 2. Using the theory of semiotics, Darbotz wanted people to recognise his artwork without having to sign it. His unique character the “Cumi” squid monitors is only painted in black and white.
The “Cumi” has been adapted by Monica Lim, Fame Agenda’s designer into a dress that will featured in the show. It will also feature models wearing photographic prints of Dabotz’s artwork which he left in the walls of Melbourne during his last visit. During the show, Darbotz will be painting the giant pink box live, the panels of which will be sold and proceeds will go to the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Check out the video from his last visit here to Melbourne
Head down and check it out today, and keep up to date with him while he’s visiting Melbourne!!
