Okay, now, back to our regular programming … we have a shitload to cover this week!!! Great piece on the Street Dreams festival in Adelaide the other week, with a lot of artists featured – looks like it was a great event!!

This great piece that Beastman and Jumbo were commissioned for was a talking point earlier this week, but its a fkn fantastic piece of art in a fantastic location, no matter what anyone thinks of the subject matter. Well done, dudes!

The crew over at Acclaim put this piece up of the massive DMV paintup in Melbournes chinatown the other week. Word.

Saturday Transmissions – Askew, High & Five

Saturday .. huh? Yeah, I ran out of time this week with everything, so we weren’t able to get the Transmissions up on Thursday – but that’s cool, as a few really cool ones were put out on Friday!

Anyways, you know the drill, watch on for this weeks roundup of all the cool video that’s been released in the past week …

Snap 2012-03-03 at 11.10.11

First up we have a video released featuring Askew – imho one of the most talented graff artists around. A rare look behind his work.

Higher Ground studios has an open day tomorrow, and this is a really, really cool glimpse into the artists working in there. Mad.

If you didn’t catch the interview we did with Nanami Cowdroy, you should check it out – this is the video with a bit behind her work on the Smirnoff project.

Ryan McGennisken had his show, If Its Between Death and Magic a couple of weeks ago, and this is an awesome little walkthrough of the show.

Project 5 is coming up soon, more details on that really soon, but here’s a short preview!

With her show with Suki coming up next weekend, Be Free did this short of one of her pieces!

This is a great little piece on some of the public art going up in Sydneys China town – nice to see councils involving artists in revitalisation efforts!

Well, that’s about it for this week – we’ll have more next week, probably on the Thursday this time .. unless Saturday feels better!

Our first feature video this week, is the Tropfest film by Jacob Oberman, featuring E.L.K. and Fr Bob Maguire.

Awesome.

Token International Video

It’s not very often that we post up any videos from outside of Australia, but I mean, shit does happen across the waves! This one really struck us this week .. so we’ve decided each week to post up a token international video, just for the fuck of it. Conor Harrington is one of our ultra favourites, and this is a short film abut his trip back to Ireland to paint …

That’s all we got, you know the deal, if you have a video, send it to us!

Shoe’s exhibition last week at RTIST Gallery was awesome – next weeks DMV show will also be amazing, but if you didn’t see this video with Shoe whilst he was down here on tour, catch it now – pretty damn cool.

Ryan McGennisken has his solo show coming up this weekend, and he got a cool preview video up for it. Great shots and some cool process work!

Zonk has a new group show coming up (more on that later) but they also did a preview video for it – Zonk is always grand, watch it.

Thursday Transmissions – SEAR, Punk & Squish

Oh have we seen stuff this week, and oh have we loved it. One of the best things about following all this kind of art these days is the amazing documentation of it all – so many people doing videos, so many great little productions … err, and lots of amateur stuff, that we love anyways because it *is* documented.

Anyways, here’s your weekly dose of what’s been happening around in VideoLand …

squishface studios

Squishface Studios opened up last Australia day, and heres a great video recap of their studio launch! So great! Neverending story bahaha.

So much greatness coming out of Melbourne Underground, here’s a little feature from Joske on SEARious Jones’s work down there.

Kyle Hughes-Odgers has a show coming up in Berlin, and here’s the preview!

Punk Milk Gallery opened up in Frankston the other week, and they have a great video of all the opening and their media event/launch day. Word.

Cool photo montage from StickUpGirlz went up a few days ago – featuring some of their work from 2011.

Days, Peque and Sykoh did a big paint up for Montana a little while ago, and they captured the day on film.

More Outpost recap video – really! Bowserland did this one for Red Bull. Really nice, actually.

Ah, always good to see something from Bados Earthling – and this montage is pretty cool.

Last night we got up to the climate change exhibition at Metro Gallery, and were, of course totally impressed. It’s still on, so get to see it if you can – here’s a bit of the story behind the show … and, err, get with the time Channel 7 and put some embed code on your videos!! Watch it here. Bastards.

To end on an awesome note, we saved this one – Askew, Phat1 and Berst all did a road trip through NZ last year, painting along the way – here is the evidence.

Well, on that note.. that’s all we have for this week, if you have any videos you want us to include here, just send them to us.
