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.

Through The Lens With David Russell – April

It’s that time of month again to show you whats been happening on the streets of Melburn, as always there is something happening.

Below is a selection of some of my favourite shots from Ironlak’s 10th anniversary paint up in Croft Lane. The event saw some of the best Melbourne and overseas artists repaint the lane; Dvate, Sofles, Treas, Sirum, just to name a few .

We also saw Trunk Diner put on an amazing Sunday event with live painting over two months, featuring Conrad Bizjak, Deams, Itch, Lucy Lucy, Jaws, Hancock and more.

Invurt also got down to Junky Project’s first solo show ‘WASTED’ at The Darkhorse Experiment in Blender Studios. Who doesn’t love Junky’s work from his usual suspects the sentinels you see everywhere, as well as some amazing sculptures made from everyday found objects.

There is also some amazing pieces from Senekt in Abbotsford, Dem 189 in Clifton Hill and an amazing collab between Rashe & Bailer in Brunswick; and finally Emily Vanderlism and the Authority Clothing crew fronted by Christopher Skyner, created a great piece down Bennets lane in the CBD.

Feature Event – PUBLIC – Perth

Man, you have no idea how excited we are for this – PUBLIC is the kind of event we love the most, a showcase of all that is great and grand about art painted out on the streets and walls – just read on and check it out for yourself …

“From 5 – 13 April 2014, large-scale urban artworks will be developed by some of the world’s best known urban artists. Blank walls will be transformed throughout Perth, pop-up spaces created in Wolf Lane, and artists will begin residencies on William Street in Northbridge, which will result in Dear William, a dedication to William Street, opening on 13 April, with artworks installed on William Street from the 13-20 April.

PUBLIC will see walls and laneways around the Perth CBD and Northbridge transformed with street art, projections, installations and public events creating a unique cultural experience.

I mean, sssshiiiitttt! Heres a preview …

As a Perth boy myself, if you had of said to me that P-town would be playing host to over 45 artists from both Australia and across the world, artists who are some of the globes absolute finest, I would have looked at you and asked if you were kidding! But PUBLIC is no joke – this is exactly what the guys over at FORM have made happen, and its one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen happen over in Perth. We’re so fkn excited that myself, Luke McManus and Dean Sunshine are all heading over to the event to check it all out for ourselves, so we’ll keep you up to date on everything happening!

Love seeing Perth being the focus of something so important, fuck yeah!
