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!

Review & Snapshots – Converse Sneaker Clash – Ft Ink & Clog- Singapore

InkTen & ClogTwo, two of Singapore’s most prominent street artists, were painting live last night at the Art Bar – Butter Factory for the Converse Sneaker Clash event. The purpose of this event was to showcase how colours are a priority and importance to Converse’s existence, with an interactive element.

Guests were greeted by a row of canvases on the entrance wall which they were allowed to sign, draw and express their-selves. Water guns filled with paint were used by guests to colour a row of sneakers. This was the main interactive element of the entire event. Ink & Clog had on display two canvases of Ink’s Hollow Ghost and Clog’s Skull characters.

The live painting was done on everyday objects such as a printer, chair, traffic pylon, television and lastly a door which was one of the main highlights of the event.

Feature Event – Aerosol Alley 2 – Melbourne

In 2012, local artist Wayne Tindall and Invurt began an epic multi-year project to transform a dilapidated laneway in the back streets of Windsor and Chapel St into a thriving mecca of street art on Melbournes south side.

After a period of time running the project, dubbed, unofficially, “Aerosol Alley”, the laneway gained the attention of Stonnington council, who offered to allocate the previously un-named laneway an official moniker – Artists Lane  and threw their support behind the project. In time, local businesses and other members of the local community also began to offer their support, and this once disused lane now plays host to a growing number of visitors and artists, both domestically and international, and is a focal point for graffiti and street art in the City of Stonnington and the greater Melbourne area.

Having played host to over four large scale painting sessions to date, including the inaugural Aerosol Alley event last year, artists are set once again to begin yet another transformation of the laneway, with a celebration of the new work to be held this Sunday, March 2nd, with the official Aerosol Alley 2 event.

“Aerosol Alley 2″ will feature over twenty of Melbournes finest graffiti and street artists renewing the walls of the laneway over the weekend, with live painting, food, DJs, street poetry and a host of fun on offer on the Sunday afternoon.

During the event, several artists will also be painting in the laneway, and there will be a special live art display of a first time ever collaboration – CONRAD BIZJAK vs SHIDA !!

Some of the artists who will be contributing to the new makeover of the laneway prior to the event will include:

Drewfunk, Putos, Silk Roy, Loadz, Presto, Ero, Senekt, Bailer, Facter, Ohnoes, Amac, Jak Rapmund, Paners, Woke, joJo Spins, Jack Frost, Short, Choq, Jack Douglas, Makatron, Heesco, Ryan Boserio, Troll, Mysterious Al, Pierre Llloga, Unwell Bunny, Frosk, Jonathan Guthmann and Ashley Goudie, and theres already some new feature art on the walls by INK & CLOG (Singapore).

There will be a great DJ lineup on the day, with plenty of urban beats for you in the carpark, with tuneage from:

  • Mike Steva (Deeperoots)
  • Jimmy James (Strictly Vinyl)
  • Chris NG (Le Soul, Goodlife)
  • MzRizk (Rizky’s Block Party)
  • Nubody (Bounce Audio)

Come down and join us in Artists Lane (Between Union & Green st) in Windsor on Sunday, March 2nd from 2pm til 7pm for a unique event! We’d love to see you all down there!!
