Press Release – The Google Street Art Project in Melbourne

For over five years, Invurt.com and Land Of Sunshine have been documenting the fleeting and ephemeral artwork around the streets of Australia, particularly in their home town of Melbourne. In this period, they have documented thousands of walls and street art events via both photographs, interviews and articles. As two of Australias most eminent authorities on street art, they have, over this time, ceaselessly collaborated promote the Australian scene and its artists to a global audience.

As one of the worlds top destinations for street art, Melbourne offers a plethora of works from a contingent of hundreds of local artists, and as a global mecca for graffiti and street art it also attracts a large number of international artists to its walls.The Melbourne Street Art collection on the Google street art site contains a small slice of some of these remarkable painting projects, many works of which have, as ephemeral as it is, now departed, recorded only in the pixels within these digital archives.

With photography by Dean Sunshine and David Russell, and curated by local Melbourne artist and editor of Invurt.com, Facter (Fletcher Andersen), as well as Luke McManus, this showcase of works is blessed by a bountiful amount of high quality, top level art from across Melbourne.

“There is always a story to tell when it comes to the streets of Melbourne and its art, and we hope that by adding a little slice of Melbourne to such a massive global project, that people from around the world can easily view these amazing works within the Google Street Art platform,” said Facter. “We are extremely proud to have partnered with Google in this endeavour. One of our primary missions here is to document the ephemeral artwork and our scene, across Australia, and we couldn’t have been happier to have been given this opportunity to do so.”

Regular updates will be undertaken on these exhibitions, as Invurt and Land Of Sunshine continue on their mission to bring the best of Melbourne street art and graffiti to the people of the world.You can find the Melbourne Street Art by Invurt and Land Of Sunshine page on the Google Cultural institute website by the short link http://google.invurt.com or by going directly to the websitehttps://streetart.withgoogle.com/ #streetartproject #invurt

Snapshots – The Paterson Project – Melbourne

In case you missed the epic Paterson Project as always I managed to get a bunch of pics, showing all the amazing pieces the artists painted on panels supplied, which were then auctioned at the event and all proceeds from the night going to charity

This event showed how artists from all backgrounds can come together and create an amazing night with only a few weeks to put it together, with over 110 artists you can bet it was something pretty special.

Video – Fintan Magee – Man Bites Dog

Video – Fintan Magee – Man Bites Dog

Murdochs The Daily Telegraph is a bias piece of shit masquerading as journalism and Fintan Magee, like so many of us, hates it. Which is actually a good thing, too, because otherwise he wouldnt have done this awesome piece – Man Bites Dog. Check out the release for it and the video below!

IMG_0677

“Sydney based artist, Fintan Magee is rapidly becoming one of Australia’s most prominent street artists having been commissioned to paint in over 20 cities around the world.

Arguably his most political work to date, ‘Man Bites Dog’ explores media bias in Australia.

Originally installed in an abandoned warehouse in Sydney’s Alexandria, Magee painted the detailed mural at the centre of the work before ceremoniously burning a life-sized wire sculpture filled with copies of The Daily Telegraph newspaper, filming the process to create a mesmeric video installation.

‘Man Bites Dog’ will be exhibited as part of ‘PROTEST’, a group exhibition opening at M16 Art Space in Canberra on Thursday 26 March
2015.

Video – Sofles – Graffiti Mapped @ White Night Melbourne 2015

Video – Sofles – Graffiti Mapped @ White Night Melbourne 2015

I had the chance to watch Sofles painting his massive mural the other week, and yet another change on Saturday night to see his amazing work brought to life by Grant Obsbornes incredible graffiti mapping projections. Put together under the mad and rad creative direction of Shaun Hossask from Juddy Roller, if you weren’t in Melbourne, and didnt get to see it yourself (you missed out!), then you now have that chance!!

Brilliant video once again from Selina Miles as well – she never, ever disappoints with these. Lets also not forget the rad soundtrack by Opiou!

Watch the whole process and end result in all its glory below!

From the press release –

“On Saturday the 21st of February, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped premiered at Melbourne’s largest cultural festival, White Night Melbourne. Attended by over 500,000 people and running from 7pm – 7am, the festival takes over Melbourne’s CBD for a one night only artistic extravaganza.

Many months in the making, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped is an innovative step forward for the world of graffiti and technology. Sofles – Graffiti Mapped explores the intrinsic connection between graffiti, street art and technology through a combination of 3D video mapping, traditional street art and graffiti techniques and motion design.

Over 5 stories high, Sofles’ inner city mural is his biggest work to date. Add to that Grant Osborne’s incredibly detailed motion design and a musical score by New Zealand music producer Opiuo, and you have a truly innovative work of art. Visible for one night only, but destined to leave an impression on the city’s skyline Sofles- Graffiti Mapped was one of the most exciting events of the entire White Night Melbourne festival.

This video has been shot and cut by the director of Sofles’ extremely successful previous video, Limitless, Selina Miles. “
