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!!

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.”

Exhibition – Mistery – A Gallery Far Far Away – Singapore

Greetings all from the Lion City – this will be my first real post since my relocation up to Singapore a week or two ago, I decided to take the plunge and do something new, so I’ll be based out of here for the next six months or so. Good thing too, as there is a crapload of great stuff happening in the SE Asia region right now that I’m hoping to cover, like this show from old school Sydney graff legend Mistery – which just popped onto my radar today!

“Reaching back to his comic book roots, Australian graffiti artist Mistery has reinterpreted classic Star-Wars imagery in cartoon form with a graffiti styled twist.

Not only regarded as one of the countries leading aerosol artists, Mistery is also an accomplished B-Boy and MC, with Spanish paint company MTN recently producing a limited edition spray can in his honor! 

Join us on Thursday night to meet the artist, view the works and enjoy some drinks, as we launch this new exhibition at CAD.”

Heres a work in progress of something for the show …

I fucking love Star Wars. I’ve seen the mans work in photos, but never had a chance to see it in a gallery context,  so i’m really looking forward to this one – and i’ll be sure to grab a bunch of photos whilst Im at it.
