It’s a day of photos here, and what better way to end up the week than with a catchup on everything that has been happening over the past two weeks?
Mike Makatron, what can we say? The man is fkn talented, and his show proved to be everything we had thought it would be. Infused with beautiful eco-centric and mutable imagery, Cycles was another show that proves how versatile he is as an artist. From the resin painted bees to the bright, new world visages and creatures, House of Bricks was filled was so much shit we loved that.
Check out all the images from the show below – thanks once again to Dave Russell for all the shots.
Christmas is upon us, and you know what that means? That means you should go and buy some art for those you love! Where else could you find some real bargains on such an occasion? Well, Safehouse Studio, of course!
Haha, okay, enough fkn infomercial. But, really, you know that when a group of artists in a studio get together to do a garage sale, that even the word "garage sale" wont do it justice. Okay, so we might be a bit biased here, considering Safehouse is our home base, but this Saturday’s Super Garage Sale is going to be mad – and we want to see as many of you there as possible!
We’ll all be digging into our piles of work and putting everything on sale – prints, paintings, sketches, drawings, hidden blackbook gems, and rare pieces from the archives. Not only that, but there will also be a bunch of painting and live art going on, a bbq (of course), art supplies and general good times.
Dangerfork, who are also residents in the studio, will also be pulling out a whole heap of mad stuff will also be "selling lost prints in the archives, test prints, and a selection of current prints at a HUGE DISCOUNT."
This is a chance to not only check out all the work from the crew at the studios, it’s also a great chance for you to come hang out, and maybe lighten our piles of art a little! haha.
If you’re in Melbourne, we’d love to see you there!!
Who: All the Safehouse Studio crew What: Safehouse Super Garage Sale Where: Safehouse Studio, 67 North St, Richmond, VIC When: Starts 11am, Saturday 8th December and goes until 4pm!!
Way back in 2010, we had the chance to chat to Numskull about what he’d been up to – fast forward to now, and we have to say, this man has been doing some great shit over the past two years.
Coming up this week at The Tate, he will be presenting his new solo show Survival Tactics – this follows on from a long ago successful showing in Brooklyn not too as a part of his collaboration with Mishka, and it looks like its going to be damn cool.
"Numskull is an Australian based artist, working out of Sydney in a variety of fields and mediums. His work spans across painting, sculpture, illustration and outdoor murals.
‘Survival Tactics’ is a re-interpretation of Numskull’s recent exhibition in Brooklyn, New York at Mishka in August this year. It is an extended capsule of artwork comprising of 6 limited edition prints, hand carved wooden sculptures, paintings and a unique video installation. In collaboration with Mishka NYC, a limited edition shirt made by Mishka and designed by Numskull will also be released on the night.
‘Survival Tactics’ is a show about repetition. The artists constant struggle and frustration with advertising and the internet has become a focal point for his work. This group of work is a direct analysis of repetition, one of life’s most common aspects. Especially in this new age, repeated action and messaging is part of our lives, wether we like it or not. Do we compete against this wavelength, or ride along with it…"
There’s also a preview video from the show up on Youtube, check it on the embed below – love this shit haha.
Head down to the Tate this Wednesday night to see it all for yourselves!
Who: Numskull What: Survival Tactics solo show Where: The Tate Gallery, 345 Glebe Point Road, Glebe When: The exhibition opens on the 28th of November, 6-9pm and runs until Sunday 2nd September. Open daily from 12-5pm.
Damn, this looks grand! We’re huge fans of Secret Walls, so when we saw this we wondered why the hell we hadn’t seen it done before – so much talent, so much battle, so much great art going up on the walls of aMBUSH Gallery again.

Chris Drummond, man behind Dangerfork, member of the infamous ID crew and a Safehouse studios resident will be putting on an awesome solo show this Thursday night at the new Litre Space gallery in Melbourne.
"Litre Space and Dangerfork are excited to present Chris Drummond’s first solo exhibition ‘Play the Angles’.
This exhibition is a collection of screen printed works playing with the traditional graffiti ideology of ‘style’ being created through the right combination of lines, angles and color’s. Chris’s aesthetic has been developed by years spent painting traditional graffiti with Melbourne’s notorious ID crew, then adding an art school twist to create colorful abstractions that hint at a wide variety o
f traditional and contemporary influences. In 2010 Chris started the fine art screen-printing & art production company Dangerfork, which has led to a fascination with the screen printed medium as well as experience organizing many successful exhibitions and events.
His new works for ‘Play The Angles’ explore the use of materials and techniques to create unique artworks combining fine art, craft & mass production processes.
‘Play the Angles’ is taking place at one of Melbourne’s newest artist run galleries; Litre Space, owned and operated by local Artist & jewelry designer Hamish Munro.
“Tucked behind Munro’s studio in an alley off Queen Street, Litre Gallery is probably the tiniest in the CBD. This suits Munro just fine. He wants Litre to be a small-scale project space that features the work of his creative friends and other local artists.” Quote – Broadsheet 28.9.2012
Litre Space creates an intimate experience whilst viewing the artwork, combined with a large outside wall & courtyard where Chris will be painting a mural over the duration of the opening night."
We are, obviously, huge fans of Chris’s work – the abstrationed formed particularly excite our aesthetics. Not to mention that the man has done some amazing work in the past, both in the streets, printwise and amongst the galleries, well, this is sure to be really great display of work.
We can’t recommend this one highly enough!
Who: Chris Drummond What: Play The Angles solo show Where: Litre Space Gallery, Rear 440 Queen st, Melbourne When: Thursday October 25th from 5pm til 9pm. Show runs for two weeks.
Not too long ago Rone headed over to the USA, hot on the trail to a new audience after several highly successful showings of work here in Melbourne at Backwoods Gallery.
Now, for his first ever US show, Rone will be setting up at White Walls Gallery in San Fran with “Darkest Before Dawn”.
Building on over a decade of technique, and on the directions he fostered in his last show, Fall From Grace, Rone continues to perfect and hone his work – and it just looks to get better and better for every new piece we see.
“White Walls is pleased to present “Darkest Before the Dawn,” the first SF solo show of Melbourne-based artist Rone to follow his successful San Francisco debut in the “Young and Free” showcase of Australian street artists at 941 Geary in 2011. “Darkest Before the Dawn,” will feature works on canvas, brick, and paper, varying in size from 3’x2’ to large-scale works measuring over 6’x6’. The opening reception will be Saturday, September 8th, from 7-11pm, and the exhibition is free and open to the public for viewing through September 29th, 2012.
With the face of the same wide-eyed and sharp-featured woman starring in each portrait, Rone creates a modern legend. Separately, each piece is an autonomous work, existing through its own beauty, but when viewed together a narrative is opened, leaving us to wonder what led to the birth of this icon. In “Darkest Before the Dawn,” Rone tells us that his feature character stands as a symbol for the possibility of assimilating our worst moments into a new strength.
By incorporating a variety of techniques, Rone deliberately infuses each piece with the textures he readily encounters when working out in the streets. The build-up and deconstruction of multiple layers is a fluid, free flowing way of revealing a composition by letting it come about itself. The medley of patterns and textures embody the continuity of time passing, while the woman in the midst of it all personifies grace overcoming deterioration.”
Check out some of the images for Darkest Before Dawn below …
Also, check out this awesome video preview for the show as well …
If only we could be there – can’t wait to see all the pics from the show emerge after the opening!

We’ve been following Cameron Brideoak since before he moved over here to Melbourne from Adelaide recently, and since arriving he has already started showing some work. Now, he teams up with friends Creature Creature for a showing of work at the Brunswick Street Gallery, and it looks pretty cool.
"Cameron Brideoake and CREATURE CREATURE Illustration (Ambrose Rehorek and Chanel Tang) have collaborated to put on their latest show entitled NO FACE at Brunswick Street Gallery. From collaborative works on wood, to paintings, prints and skateboard decks, this show promises to be unforgettable.
If you saw some of Cameron, Ambrose and Chanel’s entries in the BSG Small Works exhibition recently, now is your chance to see a whole show of their work."
Apparently the artists will have a big collaborative artwork adorning the entryway of the gallery as well – sounds intriguing! If you haven’t seen these artists works yet then now is a great chance to see some really great art as it emerges – head down to BSG this Friday to catch it all for yourself.

We’ve been reading VNA magazine for years now, and in fact the work that they do is a huge inspiration for us here, and we couldn’t be happier to see that they will be finally holding a launch party here in Oz!!

Something really different to what we usually put up, but given who and what it is, I don’t really give two craps – so please excuse me whilst I deviate from our regular programming, just for a moment …
I have been a fan of the Dirty Three since I heard their first album, "Dirty Three" way back when I was living in a pretty dilapidated house in Machans beach, FNQ. To me, my memories of that time are interspersed with getting smashed on goon on Austudy payday, crazy crazy shenanigans at the art centre I used to hang out at, playing in my short lived but much loved band "Derick And The Cabbages" and, most importantly, discovering a whole new world of music the likes I had never heard before (Being in High School in Perth in the very early 90s, it had til that point, been hip hop and "techno" as it was called back then – not to be confused with what the genre is called now).
Mostly, however, I remember the exact moment that I first heard the Dirty Three – and moments like that in a musical journey that has been as diverse in its love as mine has been, is just fkn amazing (thankyou, Ben Stevens). From The Dirty Three, to Sad And Dangerous, to Whatever You love You Are, to the musical multitrack genius of Cinders and beyond, their music is often at the core of my creative processes – hundreds of articles on this site have been written whilst I’ve been listening to D3, and, when I paint, my music often alternates between Hospital Records (dnb) and Dirty Three.
So, I guess you get the picture that, in my world, the Dirty Three really ranks.
Over the years there has been a lot of remarkable artwork produced for the covers of the Dirty Three albums. I can’t actually recall when I started to notice the shift in artwork on the D3 covers, but it started getting .. really interesting, and befitting of the music. Turns out that it has started to be produced by by the D3s own Mick Turner, and, well, I then loved it even more.
I’ve always wanted a chance to see more of Micks work in the flesh, but always seemed to miss his shows, and I’m glad that we are all being given more opportunities to do so – it is whimsical, playful and often deeply emotive work with a almost imperceptible cliff hanging drop into the edged out depth. "Cover Art & Morsels" promises us a great glimpse into the mind of his talents, and a deeper look into the worlds behind the albums of the Dirty Three – even if it is mostly prints.
"Mick Turner is a Melbourne artist and musician, known primarily as guitarist with internationally acclaimed instrumental group Dirty Three. He has however been a painter for as long as he’s played music, and his artwork features on the covers of Dirty Three and his own solo album releases. These cover-art paintings exist as a visual accompaniment to the music of Dirty Three and Turner’s other projects, possessing a similar wild beauty.
To coincide with Dirty Three’s upcoming Australian tour, guitarist Mick Turner is hosting a travelling art exhibition.
Limited edition reproduction prints of cover art images from Dirty Three albums, along with a selection of Mick’s recent works, will be available at the exhibitions. The Melbourne show will also have a canvas of the cover image for the new album Toward The Low Sun on display."
As we said, this doesnt’ fall into our usual kind of fare, but, to be honest, we like cool art, and Mick Turner is definitely cool. We wouldn’t mind getting a print ourselves, finally, so we’ll definitely be heading to Tinning Street.
Oh yeah, on a sad note, I actually missed out on tickets for this latest tour of the Dirty Three, and it pissed me off royally. Anyone got hookups to the Palace for the 16th? Beuller? … Beuller? … well …

Correct us if we’re wrong but in our memory, there hasn’t ever quite been a show like this here in Australia – and, as their press release says, possibly even outside of the USA.
There have, of course, been solo shows and group shows by many great galleries featuring top calibre artists from both the US and the rest of the world, but we’re hard pressed to think of an instance whereby someone has gone and put together a group show featuring some of the most influential NYC graffiti artists in history.
The list reads like a role call from books and movies such as Subway Art and Style Wars, ones that, growing up, were just images and names on paper or screen. RTIST Gallery has been pulling out all the stops this year, they’ve featured some of the best in the world, and now they’re heading down the road to the formative days of graffiti in the city that never sleeps, gathering up all the names they can for a massive display.
"In the 1970′s a spontaneous art movement exploded throughout New York City : Graffiti. RTIST Gallery is proud to host the Godfathers of this movement with a world first.
The New York City Kings group show will feature work from 24 of New York’s biggest train painters and bombers from various crews and train-lines covering the entire state of NYC. Exploring new and old work from the Kings who helped pioneer this world-wide movement, the exhibition will include original works on canvas, paper, maps, sketch books, photography and prints. "This could possibly be the largest line-up of NYC’s graffiti community ever assembled outside of the US" states Jeremy Gaschk Head Curator at RTIST. The RTIST space will be transformed with an explosion of installations to showcase the heart of the NYC graffiti movement and celebrate the artists that changed the world’s art scene forever. Live performances from Dj Peril and King Excel of the Zulu Nation Melbourne Chapter will also be spinning those rare east coast classics on the night.
Artists included in this Goliath show include: PARTONE, TRACY 168, NOC 167, KET, EZO, GHOST, BLADE, MARE 139, FUZZONE, TKID, IZ THE WIZ, STAY HIGH, DUSTER, DOC, SYE, DOVES, WANE, CES, DASH, MERES, SONIC, INK, SPAR & QUIK
This show is Co-Curated by Jeremy Gaschk, Andrew Bourke and Federico Frum."
We have heard that there may be a couple extra additions to this list of artists – just on to top off the mind blowing group of names, ya know? Who knows, it really doesn’t matter, what we see is already epic. Alongside everything else that has been happening in the last few months across the Melbourne graffiti world, this show is yet more icing on an already loaded cake.
It’s a rare thing these days for us to miss any show at RTIST, but if this was a ticketed event, we’d be one of those crazy dudes camping outside for two weeks just to make sure, 100%, that we got to see it.
Who: Partone, Tracy 168, Noc 167, Ket, Ezo, Ghost, Blade, Mare 139, Fuzzone, Tkid, Iz The Wiz, Stay High, Duster, Doc, Sye, Doves, Wane, Ces, Dash, Meres, Sonic, Ink, Spar & Quik What: New York City Kings Where: RTIST Gallery, 29 St Edmonds Rd, Prahran, VIC When: Show opens Thursday 8th March at 7pm and runs til Sunday the 18th of March.
Well doesn’t this look mighty fine? Besides using one of my favourite words in the English language (hey, its in the dictionary!) this show running alongside the Adelaide Fringe Festival looks to be pretty banging.
Opening this Thursday, Discombobulated will have a whole range of cool shit for just about everyone.
“A dynamic visual art exhibition featuring new works by Australia’s leading graffiti art practitioners. The show will include works by local, interstate and a couple of very special international artists. Featuring a live art showcase on the opening night.”
It seems these days also, that live art is just par for the course for openings and such, and seeing as we love that shit, we love seeing that there will be a display of some of SAs finest along with the show!
Have fun, Radelaidians, this looks like a top night.
