Paint Up – Sofles, Adnate And Smug – At Northland

Sofles and Smug were in town recently, painting the town purple, beige, blue and every colour in between, with their unique styles of hyper rendering and tight detail. The guys were also accompanied by Adnate, the three of them spent four days in the freezing cold, where they each painted amazing portraits but each with such varying composition and    style.

To watch the three artists side by side was a definite highlight of my month, stay tuned as I will be posting their most recent paint up in Fitzroy.

Exhibition – Interrobang – No Vacancy – Melbourne

Just saw this dandy show pop up on our radar, with a couple of favourites doing a group show at No Vacancy in Melbournes QV! Fred Fowler, Niels Oeltjen (Nails), Hiroyasu Tsuri , Stanislava Pinchuk (Miso), Shida, Kenta Senekt , Luke Pither, Laith McGregor and  Stabs all in one room, nice!

“The interrobang (‽)

n. A punctuation mark in the form of a question mark superimposed on an exclamation point, used to end a simultaneous question and exclamation. (eg. WTF?!)

The interrobang, the first new punctuation mark to be introduced in three hundred years, is a mark said to be the typographical equivalent of a grimace or a shrug.

Interrobang, the exhibition, presents divergent and peripheral work by nine artists. Experimental in nature, these works are the interrobang in their practice.”

Head down to no Vacancy this Thursday night to check it all out, yep!!

Exhibition – Chehehe – The Exit End Of A Wormhole To Another Dimension – Melbourne

Damnit, I do feel like I’m missing out on some cool shit while I’m up here in Singapore, and this show coming up this week is one of those things!

Seeing our mate Chehehe put in his first real solo show is pretty damn exciting we’ve been following his work and enjoying it immensely over the past whike. From his immediately recognisable chebots to his amazing interactive che-machine at the White Night festival, his painting and illustrations, as well as his unique installations really are curiously cool.

Head down this Thursday night and check it out, and support the man on his first solo endeavour – it’ll be well worth the trip!!

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.
