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.

Exhibition – Sian Song & Erin Greer – Daylight/Dark Night – Melbourne

I’m a big fan of Erin Greers work, and though I am less than familiar with Sian Songs, the glimpses of it that I’ve seen have piqued my interest – and it looks like a great counterpoint to Erins work in this upcoming duo exhibition from the two at Off The Kerb gallery this Friday night.

Intrigued by the creatures that inhabit the daylight and dark night, Sian Song & Erin Greer combine forces to paint a window into the magical world of animals. Both artists employ a whimsical and playful style to bring these creatures’ narratives to life.”

Head down to Collingwood to see it all for yourselves, its shaping up to be a great night for art across Melbourne.

Exhibition – Forbidden Spaces – House Of Bricks – Melbourne

Who doesn’t love abandoned spaces? If you don’t, then you’re probably on the wrong website – as abandos are one of our favourite things. Throughout Melbourne, there are a whole slew of UrbEx individuals, traversing the broken, forgotten corners of commerce and industry, snapping pics of the beautiful decaying detritus. This week in Melbourne, you’ll get a chance to check out a whole bunch of shots form some of these adventures, with Forbidden Spaces.

“Forbidden Spaces brings together the vision of five Melbourne based photographers.

Each with their own unique eye for detail and appreciation of the derelict spaces captured. Creating a window for the viewer to a world forgotten, decaying, overgrown and absent of life.

They invite you in to find the beauty amongst the decay – join them as they showcase a unique visual narrative of abandoned structures from Melbourne and around the world.”

Head down to house Of Bricks this Friday night to see it all.

Magazine Release – Street Struck #2

When we picked up the first issue of Street Struck last year, we opened its pages and were more than a little fkn impressed - there are many magazines out there these days covering graffiti and street art, and its hard to push up amongst the pack,- but what we saw within its pages made us realise that it was well on its way, already, to being a leader amongst its peers.

Beautiful photography, imagery and behind the scenes shots, littered with works from some of Melbournes finest artists, Street Struck is the Melbourne graffiti magazine that we’ve needed  - and now they’ve released Issue #2, and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.

“Street Struck magazine is a Melbourne based limited edition publication focusing on all elements of graffiti. Issue 02 is 80 pages and packed full of high quality mostly unseen pictures. Including full colour productions, legals, tracksides, panels, freights, blackbooks & bombing; from some of the city’s (and its visitors) most active writers.

Features include GDS Crew, Leo One and blackbook entries from Pudl, John Kaye, Presto and I-Spy

The magazine is limited to only 500 copies.

Issue 2 has just landed in Melbourne, now currently available at Giant, Villain, Obese Records and online at www.obeserecords.bigcartel.com - It will be making its way around Australia to all good hip-hop stores next week.”

Check out a bunch of the preview images the Streetstruck dudes sent along below – rad shit indeed, get a copy as soon as you can.

Exhibition – Adnate – Beyond The Lands – Metro Gallery – Melbourne

From his works of graff out on the streets to where he is now – Adnate has certainty had an amazing journey over the past few years, as he has taken his art from the streets of Melbourne to become one of Australias top artists, known throughout the country, and the world, for his vividly emotive portraiture.

Over the years Adnate has produced many works paying homage to indigenous Australians, and this show will be the first time he focuses fully on the subject.

“Working mainly with aerosol spray paint, Adnate pays homage to his origins as a graffiti artist and his complex practice rivals the establishment of contemporary portraiture.  He has an innate ability to deliver the intense impact of light and shade that plays across his works no matter their scale.  It’s the fusion of his passion for indigenous Australians combined with his graffiti background and his knowledge of contemporary and traditional fine art techniques which creates truly masterful paintings on canvas.
For years to come, this body of work will provide a window to the soul of Adnate and Australia’s indigenous community.”

With a large majority of the works in the show already sold, we can’t congratulate Adnate enough on this show – its more than well deserved, and all thats left is for us to see it for ourselves!! Cant fricken wait.
