They’ve had a bit of a resurgence in recent years as independent designers and artists have been producing them as collectable and limited edition items – I’ve already got a few in my collection, and damnI wish Iw as back home so that I could ad a few more with this show! Stupidcrap is leading the way on this one day only event – its nice to see them doing something cool like this in Melbourne. Though info around this show is fairly scant (I’d love to see some examples of some of the pins),

Interview – Marguerite Tierney http://www.invurt.com/2016/05/17/interview-marguerite-tierney/ http://www.invurt.com/2016/05/17/interview-marguerite-tierney/#respond Mon, 16 May 2016 14:06:41 +0000 http://www.invurt.com/?p=33154 IMG_3868These days, it’s always a pleasure when I stumble across a Melbourne artist that for some reason or another, I haven’t seen much of before. Over the years I’ve interviewed and written about (and just generally appreciated) hundreds of artists on this site, whether they’re painters, illustrators, comic book artists or those who are truly immersed in the Melbourne street art scene – so whenever I discover someone new, even if they’re not “new” per se, I tend to get a little excited.

A few months ago my mate GT was rambling about a rad space that he was looking to move into in Fitzroy with a bunch of other talented mofos. Now, just a short time later, they’re ready for business and holding their very first exhibition at their new studio/gallery, Lanes End! “Looking to bridge that gap between high end fine art and urban contemporary culture, Lane’s End is a new

The MOS series of events are, themselves, some of the funnest things around that you can do with a bunch of other wall painting enthusiasts, and after fifteen years it just keeps getting better and bigger as it expands to different regions. It’s one of the best graffiti events in the world, hands down. At the beginning of April, I headed down to Melbourne for two days for MOS Melbourne, then, in mid-April, I found myself up in Kuala Lumpur for MOS Malaysia – so, it only felt right that I head up to Manila
