Paint Up – Sofles, Adnate And Smug – At Northland

Sofles and Smug were in town recently, painting the town purple, beige, blue and every colour in between, with their unique styles of hyper rendering and tight detail. The guys were also accompanied by Adnate, the three of them spent four days in the freezing cold, where they each painted amazing portraits but each with such varying composition and    style.

To watch the three artists side by side was a definite highlight of my month, stay tuned as I will be posting their most recent paint up in Fitzroy.

Exhibition – Chehehe – The Exit End Of A Wormhole To Another Dimension – Melbourne

Damnit, I do feel like I’m missing out on some cool shit while I’m up here in Singapore, and this show coming up this week is one of those things!

Seeing our mate Chehehe put in his first real solo show is pretty damn exciting we’ve been following his work and enjoying it immensely over the past whike. From his immediately recognisable chebots to his amazing interactive che-machine at the White Night festival, his painting and illustrations, as well as his unique installations really are curiously cool.

Head down this Thursday night and check it out, and support the man on his first solo endeavour – it’ll be well worth the trip!!

FORM Gallery – PUBLIC – Perth – Video and PUBLICation

It’s been a few months since Fletch, Dean and I got back from Perth for PUBLIC. What an awesome weekend it was. The guys at FORM have just shared this great video by Chad Peacock with a great wrap up of the event. It’s a great reminder of the weekend.

FORM has also put together this little book called PUBLICation – available for purchase at the Gallery and also viewable free online, see below.

The work didn’t stop after that weekend, it’s still going! Big ups to the FORM crew – keep the goodness coming! Kyle Hughes-Odgers (aka Creepy) recently finished painting at the Perth airport and Vans the Omega and Beastman just finished this new piece together.

Even more exciting is the arrival of SANER !!! He couldn’t make the original dates due to some logistical issues so he’s coming this month to make up for it :) I’ll be sure to keep you in the loop with photos and progress when he gets here. He’ll paint walls in Perth as well as up in the Pilbara. Spewing we missed him while we were there, ah well.

Event – Bright Lights – By Numskull – At Backwoods Gallery

If you are looking for something to do friday night, then get along to Backwoods Gallery, and check out Bright Lights featuring Sydney artist Numskull

“Having not exhibited in Melbourne for over a decade, Numskull’s long awaited return also marks his first showing with Backwoods Gallery. Bright Lights is a series of paintings and sculptures that continue on from his recent residency at the Museums Quartier in Vienna where he celebrated our memories of popular comic book characters by reinterpreting them as a collection of museum busts.

Much like the works from Vienna, where the compositional arrangements of objects partially masked the identity of the characters, this new suite aims to subjugate the obvious. In Bright Lights, the immediately recognisable figures have disappeared. In their place are silhouettes of headless beings devoid of any distinctive personality, anonymous and statuesque. Their bodies are jolted by the blows of arrows piercing their skin as they float amongst a wreckage of irregular patterned objects.”

Through The Lens With David Russell Photography – July 2014

Well it has been another month filled with mad walls by both graffiti and street artists, from epic paint ups such as the Rose street car park and the south wall at Section 8, featuring the talented Conrad Bizjak and Heesco.

Its not just in Melbourne’s laneways in the CBD where you will find these gems, you only have to travel to suburbs such as Collingwood, Fitzroy, Richmond  Brunswick to find a lot of the work you see in my photos.

So next time you are in the neighbourhood be sure check out some of the incredible art that we are so lucky to be surrounded by.

Video – Last Breath Project – Melbourne

The last breath project has been doing some cool things over th epast year or two. Targeting buildings that are on the edge of demolition, the Last Breath project and the artists who participate in the various cities gain access and turn it into a temporary gallery of paint and good shit.

Last Breath IV (Melbourne) from Last Breath on Vimeo.

“This an attempt to make the most of the final days of a spacious warehouse in North Melbourne, now void of any life, before its meaning and beauty are forgotten. We occupied the space and invited artists to celebrate the last days of this soon-vanished construction. Now, the building and its final beautification will fully perish and on its grounds, yet another materiality will rise.

Last Breath is currently traveling. Write to tom@lastbreathproject.co.uk to remain up-to-date on next locations and to get involved, as a beautifier or exhibition visitor.

Event – Idle – By Sebastian Fransz – At The Darkhorse Experiment – At Blender studios

Be sure to get along to this on Wednesday night, featuring my good mate, Sebastian Fransz.

Look at the wall. The wall has been built. Soon, it will be un-built. There is someone’s dried spit sitting partially over the last loop on a tag someone else did two years ago. The tag is black. The black spray paint fits over the texture of the brick. There is mortar between the bricks, which is made from sand, cement and water. The wall is made from spit, spray paint, bricks and mortar.
Steps out onto the street. Full of intention. Today is this day, and another one is coming after that.
Wood is trees. Cut wood is dead trees. Paper is pulverised trees. Charcoal is tree-derived carbon, which is bound with gum. Art is when various adulterated and mutilated elements are forced to hang around with one another.
How did it begin? With an explosion. How will it end?
The wall has been knocked down. The chips are spraying.
Something else will happen later, and it will probably be violent.
