Exhibition – Seasons of Change – Winter – Names of the Game – Revolver Upstairs 

We are extremely proud to bring this show to you. Working along side Kid Silk, Invurt’s David Russell and Luke McManus have put together a selection of some of Melbourne’s finest for the next episode of Seasons of Change at Revolver – Names of the Game. With writers and artists from all styles and spectrums this line up is sure to produce some awesome work!

As well as a unique piece from each artist, there will also be a limited edition print available (thanks Dangerfork). We’ve also invited Nicole Reed to do the poster wall, one of Melbourne’s most renowned photographers; it totally made sense she should do the wall for this show, we’re looking forward to see what she comes up with, as her photos are always super awes!

It’s definitely an honour to have been asked to be involved with Seasons of Change. SOC has been one of my favourite long running exhibitions, showcasing different parts of Melbourne’s graffiti scene and giving people the opportunity to purchase (always at an affordable price) art from writers and artists that otherwise would not be on sale or at other exhibitions.

Seasons of Change – Winter 2015 – Names of the Game

Together they have helped organise and facilitate the production of several significant large-scale projects, including the recently completed Asylum Seekers Resource Centre production in Footscray. Both are also prominent members and contributors to the Invurt blog.

Together with the help of co-curator Kid Silk, ‘Names of The Game’, showcases some of their favourite Melbourne artists, with new works, a production on the graff wall, and a poster-wall installation.“

Through The Lens April – With David Russell Photography

Last month saw burners going up all over Melbourne, with artists such as Askew 1, Guido Vanhelten, Adnate, Fintan Magee, Rone & Mayo, dropping an awesome production down Easey Street, Collingwood, organised by Shaun Hossack from the Juddy Roller Creative.

April also saw Dvate put up some killer pieces and with the return of Melbourne favourite Phibs, visiting for a short spray-cation, also artist’s such as Nemco didn’t escape my lens either, bringing his unique style and flavour all over the streets of Melbourne, its always good to see something fresh.

Not to forget artist’s Jack Douglas, Buttons, Mike Makatron, Duke Styles, Porno, Heesco and Sirum, these are artist’s constantly pushing their craft, till next month get out there and explore the world of Street and Graffiti, Peace.

Video – Last Breath Project – Melbourne

Video – Last Breath Project – Melbourne

The last breath project has been doing some cool things over th epast year or two. Targeting buildings that are on the edge of demolition, the Last Breath project and the artists who participate in the various cities gain access and turn it into a temporary gallery of paint and good shit.

Last Breath IV (Melbourne) from Last Breath on Vimeo.

“This an attempt to make the most of the final days of a spacious warehouse in North Melbourne, now void of any life, before its meaning and beauty are forgotten. We occupied the space and invited artists to celebrate the last days of this soon-vanished construction. Now, the building and its final beautification will fully perish and on its grounds, yet another materiality will rise.

Last Breath is currently traveling. Write to tom@lastbreathproject.co.uk to remain up-to-date on next locations and to get involved, as a beautifier or exhibition visitor.

Aerosol Alley 2

Snapshots – Aerosol Alley 2 @ Artists Lane – Windsor

Back at the beginning of the month, we got together a bunch of about 30 or so artists for another great painting jam down at Artists lane in Windsor. The painting commenced on the Saturday, with a mass of new artwork being painted. Artists included Drewfunk, Putos, Silk Roy, Loadz, Presto, Senekt, Bailer, Facter, Ohnoes, Amac, Chehehe, Jak Rapmund, Paners, Woke, JoJo Spins, Jack Frost, Short, Mishap, Choq, Jack Douglas, Makatron, Heesco, Ryan Boserio, Troll, SUEB, Mysterious Al, Pierre Llloga, Unwell Bunny and Frosk.

Come the Sunday, there were a couple of artists doing finishing touches, but the focus was on the art being created by Makatron, Conrad Bizjak and Bailer and the open car park block party.

It was a great weekend, and a great paintup by all – this is the fourth time we’ve done a painting session down in the laneway, and the second Aerosol Alley event, and hopefully it will continue on into the future as a great little event for the artists, by the artists!

Check out all the rad photos that David Russell got for us over the weekend below!

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!!
