Video – Adnate – Sofles – Smug @ Northlands

It was an awesome piece and an awesome collab, by some awesome artists. Check out the (and, yet another) mad video from EdInFocus of the whole thing!

Adnate, Smug and Sofles @ Northland Shopping Centre from EdInFocus on Vimeo.

“Northland Shopping Centre has commissioned three leading street artists to create a graphic installation that will showcase the personality of Victoria’s largest Shopping Centre in the North.
The three feature artists include Smug, Adnate and Sofles with the four day large-scale installation commencing tomorrow morning.

British talent Smug, who has been hailed globally as one of the world’s most talented photo-realistic street artists, will be teaming up with two of Australia’s leading street artists Adnate and Sofles to collectively design and deliver a unique and ‘North’ inspired graphic.

The world first collaboration comes off the back of a new initiative from Northland Shopping Centre which aims to better utilise its key spaces to help showcase local and international talent, as well as support innovative projects and events.

Michael Bickers, Northland Centre Manager explains. “We wanted to explore the idea of creating more interesting spaces at the centre. A high-profile street art installation was suggested so we took the time to search for the right kind of artists who understood the Northland brand. On discovering local talent Adnate, who is famous for photo-realistic works in Fitzroy, Melbourne’s North and the CBD, we immediately saw a connection. Adnate was keen to be involved and invited internationally renowned Scottish street artist Smug and Brisbane talent Sofles to join the project. Together they have an incredible style supported by their huge fan following – we couldn’t be happier.”

Exhibition – Welcome to Black Canyon – Melbourne

We have always loved shows curated by Sean morris, and even better than a Sean curated show is him teaming up with Tom Groves from Knock Knock magazine fame for a new project – Black Canyon!

“The first venture from new Australian arts project Black Canyon opens in Melbourne next Friday, August 29.

‘Welcome To Black Canyon’ is set to feature large-scale print work by a lineup of artists from Spain, France, England, Canada, Germany and the USA (many of whom have never shown in Australia before) alongside a slew of local favourites.

Launching on the night will be the limited run risograph publication ‘Black Canyon Vision Quest 1′. A collection of bold, aggressive illustration and design,Vision Quest 1 Is Black Canyon’s statement of intent. No frills, no filler, just 16 young artists making uncompromising work.

Black Canyon is a collaboration between Sean Morris and Tom Groves, who first worked together on the ‘Gold Blood, Magic Weirdos’ group show at Backwoods Gallery in March of this year. It was the last in a trilogy of Magic Weirdos shows curated by Morris, which were greeted by big crowds in Melbourne, Perth and London.

The show runs until 5pm on Sunday August 31. Check the full lineup below:

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.

As part of the 2014 Melbourne Art Fair, good friend of Invurt Alison Young, Professor, Social and Political Sciences, Melbourne University, joins Alex McCulloch, Director, Alex McCulloch Art, Rone, Street Artist and Jacqueline Milner, Sydney Senior Lecturer, Theoretical Enquiry, University of Sydney to discuss Art in the Street. The panel will discuss the impact of street art on the urban environment and the evolution of street art over the last decade or so. I’m looking forward to this discussion, hopefully we’ll see you there. This Saturday!!!

Day Ticket 500x229 Event Melbourne Art Fair Art in the Street (Panel Discussion) Royal Exhibition Building Melbourne in exhibitions

Melbourne Art Fair

From the Melbourne Art Fair website: “The theme of this panel is ‘Art in the Street’. In particular, we will focus on the ways in which street art takes art into the urban environment and in which the practice of art has assumed a wide variety of new forms, and the modes of public interaction have expanded. Street art is often described as the largest ever art movement, a claim that is sometimes based on the estimated number of people practising as street artists and sometimes on the worldwide popularity that street art is enjoying. And as it becomes more popular and more marketable, street art can increasingly be found in the gallery, the museum and the auction house, as well as in the street. But when street art moves indoors, is it still street art? As a market develops for street art, does it lose its popular roots? Is there something about street art that makes it different from other forms of contemporary art, or from graphic design? What’s the future for this popular form of art in public space?”

Who: Alison Young, Alex McCulloch, Rone and Jacqueline Milner.
What: Melbourne Art Fair – Panel Discussion – Art in the Streets
When: Saturday 16th August 2-4PM.
Where: Melbourne Exhibition Centre.

Exhibition – Interrobang – No Vacancy – Melbourne

Just saw this dandy show pop up on our radar, with a couple of favourites doing a group show at No Vacancy in Melbournes QV! Fred Fowler, Niels Oeltjen (Nails), Hiroyasu Tsuri , Stanislava Pinchuk (Miso), Shida, Kenta Senekt , Luke Pither, Laith McGregor and  Stabs all in one room, nice!

“The interrobang (‽)

n. A punctuation mark in the form of a question mark superimposed on an exclamation point, used to end a simultaneous question and exclamation. (eg. WTF?!)

The interrobang, the first new punctuation mark to be introduced in three hundred years, is a mark said to be the typographical equivalent of a grimace or a shrug.

Interrobang, the exhibition, presents divergent and peripheral work by nine artists. Experimental in nature, these works are the interrobang in their practice.”

Head down to no Vacancy this Thursday night to check it all out, yep!!

Brad Mills – WildStyle In The West

This week I managed to get back to Brad Mills before she goes the way of  many other classic abando locations like the Collingwood silo’s, I really love this place as i’m sure a lot of you do.

From the graff covered walls to the to the old buildings that surround you, this makes for a perfect setting for photos, with all that rust and run down walls.

I always feel so safe and at home surrounded by decay and all forms of urban expression, from tags to burners, pieces to mad charo’s, it has it all.

If you ever got the chance to go there a few years back, it was massive on an epic scale the overall size was like few football fields, sheds as far as the eye can see photos’s can’t do it justice not even mine.

So if you gets the chance to pay her a visit before she leaves this mortal coil, do it you will not be disappointed.

I also grabbed a few cheeky pics on the by Dvate, Sabeth, Askem and some burners by the unstoppable Duke Grimo (Style).

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.
