Archive for August, 2010

Well, its been an interesting few days. I have made a new small Mash Up Zine playing with the idea of reintroducing the artists hand into a photocopied zine to embody it with a bit more ownership and value…Think the Artist’s mark versus Art in the age of mechanical reproduction.

Zine – End Game available soon from Sticky Institute in Melbourne.

Small hand sprayed edition of 20

…so keep your eyes peeled as they will go quick!

Exhibition – I also was lucky enough to get one of my paintings selected for the Sweet Streets street art exhibition coming up in Melbourne this October. It wasn’t the work I was hoping was selected, but getting a work on the wall is all the same at the end of the day. Anyway, to find out more about whats on during the festival follow the sweet streets link above.

Mail – Today I received a few awesome paste ups from the crew over at UK based Prefab77. The pasters will be hitting the streets of Melbourne soon, maybe during Sweet Streets…so keep your eyes peeled.

Or go visit their site and see their awesome art >>

Old Friends – I caught up with Mel Kerr, a Melbourne artist and an old friend of mine this week at her studio. Her work inspired by suburban interiors and urban exteriors blends fine art beautifully with inspiration from street art.

 So go check her art out here >>

 

Copyright Breach – And the final bit… not as fun as the rest above, is today when I went to log into ebay I found one of my t-shirt designs for sale on ebays front page from a seller/company over in Thailand. The funny thing is, that its not even a particularly good design of mine. They had also ripped a few from mechline, and a few others designers also. I guess if you look at it one way its flattering. But if you look at it another way it just pisses you off.

Anyway, at least I can say things are never boring!

Enjoy,

No Frills

Here are a few images of some of the awesome new stencils by Melbourne based street artists HaHa. I have sat on these pics for a few weeks to avoid being a spoiler…as they were taken in his studio and were for an exhibition in Brisbane. Its now opened, so i thought i would throw them up here now. They are pretty impressive being about 2.5 metres high and using up to 40 layers.

So keep your eyes peeled for his work, its well worth it!

Here are my new paintings based on my ‘Terrorists often wear suits’ image that just recently went up in Rutledge/Hosier Lane. The terrorists wear a range of abstracted multinational logos on their suits. These are a bit experimental, being digital prints on a heavy weight canson watercolour paper with spray paint…and the odd bit of ink over top. Then a matt varnish top coat. I’m having a bit of fun with them…fun enough to drag me out to the workshop in this cold weather. Enjoy!
