One of our favourite Perth lads, The Yok and Singaporean artist Sheryo both base themselves in New York City these days – which meant it was just a hop skip and a jump for then to head down to Mexico for a bit of a paint.
From Sheryo -
“Hello! The Yok and I just got back from a 2mths trip to Mexico where we painted for a festival, organised a Drink and Ink night. ( tattoo night ) and got in some surfing time.
The original sketches are available on heavyweight art paper or straight from the sketch book, please contact me for details if you are interested.”
Watch a fun video of the the first half of the trip here:
These guys have also done some amazing work at 5 Pointz and in Bushwick in the past week or two, really grand stuff.
Check out all the pics of their work in Mexico below, and get in quick if you want to buy any of them! Well be catching up with this pair when we hit NYC next month, so keep an eye out for more grandness to come!
Well, it’s Friday … and, of course, we missed Thursday, but Friday seems like a good day for videos anyways! We have a whole bunch of great shit this week, Adrian Doyle, Adnate, Shida, Itch, Miss Riz and Kaitlin Beckett vs Matthew Dunn – watch on!
We headed down the other day to catch up with Adnate and Shida as they embarked on a massive wall project .. if you haven’t seen this vide yet, you really need to. Like, yesterday. Both of these guys are killin it. Such a fine addition to the plethora of mad assed Melbourne street art in the heart of the CBD.
We also have this mad assed video from Itch, with Scribe Apparel – Itch has his show coming up next week, and this video is a rad lead in to the show!!
Next week will see the first episode of the two part “Subtopia” documentary, a story about Adrian Doyle, Dark Horse Experiment and Blender – this is a must see for anyone who wants to discover the inner workings of a guy that has done so much for street art here in Melbourne. A slice of history recorded.
Kaitlin Beckett and Matthew Dunn have their joint show opening up next week – VS, and here is the preview clip for it!
We’re back for another week of videos of street art and other cool shit from around Australia and NZ – so view on for some late Thursday night goodness …
Amazing short film with some familiar faces – from the team at Diamond Dozen and made by Callum Preston, and featuring Andrew King, (Art Collector), Nicole Reed, (Photographer), Rone, (Street Artist), Adele Winteridge, (Interior Architect), Steve Gourlay, (Skateboard Photographer), this is Mono.
Sofles has been over in the Netherlands lately, and this is a great video of what he got up to over there! Is there anything this man can’t do?
Shida was down in Melbourne recently, painting the shit out of everything he saw. This is a little feature on him from Blake House.
Well, we lied tone, that that was the last because then we just saw this and thought, fuckit, lets break our Australia/NZ only rule – here’s a cool report on all the street art thats starting to pop up in Burma now that the regime has loosened up a bit … go Rangoon, go!
Yeah, Sunday, not Thursday. I haven’t had much time to write stuff during the week this week due to other commitments, so Sundays look like my new get shit done days. First up, of course, is our slightly late run down on everything that’s been happening in the world of videos across the web.
Watch on for some great art from the streets of Melbourne, to the galleries of Sydney and beyond.
We put out a small video this week of us doing a few walls and shit in the leadup to our show opening last Friday, hope you enjoy it!
Some great videos of street art from Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Brisbane this week – as well as a bunch of other cool art movies. Read on to see the best of all the video we’ve seen from across the scene …
To finish it off, we have two newly uploaded videos taken in both Hosier Lane and Union Lane in Melbournes CBD. These are great walkthroughs, and if you want to see in detail the current state these two iconic Melbourne street art laneways then check these out!
Ah man, we really do love Australian art – what a great week for video!! Catch you next Thursday!
There have been plenty of great videos released this week, so without further ado here’s our weekly roundup of videos released across the web …
Probably the funniest thing we’ve seen all month – Lush has released his new philanthropy website, Toy Vision. Check out the video, and head over to sponsor a toy today – a more than worthy cause!
James Dodd has released a new video, tying in with a big mural piece he painted at the Art Gallery of South Australia. Very cool.
E.L.K. and Father Bob did a half hour q&a the other week, its a longer video but well worth the watch to find out more about how this pair worked together to create ELKs Archibald finalist portrait.
DabsMyla joined up with Kems to do this little video,
If you didn’t catch the AnyForty/T-World collab shirts, you should head over and see if there are any left! In the meantime, though, you can check out this video that they just released in conjunction with Broken Antler. Nice!
Paul McLean = broken record and represents the epitomy of narrow mindedness. Yawn.
We didn’t put up a Transmissions last week, because, well, there was bugger all! In future if there’s not much on that week, we have a great idea we’ll be putting into practice … just so you get your fix!
First up is an awesome Sam Evans video of his trip over to to Portugal – this is a really great interview with the artist, and a great look at his work.
Check out the just released and very damn nice preview for Matt Adnates show at RTIST Gallery next month. Can’t wait for this.

This is nice little time lapse that Bec Winnel did for her Semi Permanent talk, seeing peoples process is always awesome.
Of course, to end the day, here’s the Banksy thing that happened last week … it would have been nice for the news outlets to have mentioned that the Shem piece is going to get knocked out as well, and not misquote certain statements… it’s funny how the media latches on to these things, but, no, I’m not going to get started and I’ll save my diatribe some other time. Whatever you might think of it, at least it started a conversation.
So, here’s out weekly wrap up of all that is good and cool amongst the world of Australian and NZ street art, graffiti and underground styles. Follow on for this weeks video wrap up!
This is one fine ass video put together by David Anthony Parkinson featuring Adelaides Cameo – watch this one, its straight up grand and really well produced.
