The Street Salon installation that I was coordinating with David Dellafiora for the Geelong Arts Alliance is now up in central Geelong. Street Salon is a community art project where the elite salon exhibitions of the past are turned on their head by allowing access to all and displaying every artwork submitted in a shop front with 24hr access for the general public to easily view. Street Salon is a democratic artwork about participating in the arts, while also renewing the streetscape and filling one of the empty shops affecteted by ecconomic impacts such as the global financial crisis. Artworks were created by untrained artists, school students, people with disabilities, local artists as well as artists from interstate and overseas. All works are shown together as equals!

The display can be found in the Lt Malop St Mall (Shop 110).

This project was funded by the City of Greater Geelong.

 

There will also be a workshop running on Wednesday if people want to drop in and make some art, and a closing with a few drinks on the Sunday 10th Oct. (Time TBC)

I got my ‘Terrorists often wear suits’ image back from the framers yesterday. It’s the version pasted on the billposters that were taken down from Hosier lane recently. It one of my favs for a while as it looks really precious the way it has been framed, while still remaining very street in my opinion.

I also got some tees this week for a friend, one of which was the same image.

The mailbox was actually pretty full this week as i also got a pile of new stickers too.

What else…hmm…I also managed to drop into the semi-permanent show this week in melbs, well worth a look especially the piece by Beastman on the wall. Ghostpatrol has a new one on at No Vacancy QV which is awesome…go see his bizarre/tent thing…you feel like a kid again. And i spent friday night at 1000 pound bend seeing the ‘just another group show’…and then having a few…way too many over at the blender studios. Oh and went for a wander on the street art tour today which was fun times. I actually got to see a heap of art this week considering i have been super busy and up to 2am every night doing graphic design on the side. Anywho…

Peace out!

I have been busy, busy…busy over the last week or so.

I have not had much time for making art due to my day job being at its busiest peak and having a big design project on taking up most nights till late. I will reveal further details on this a bit closer to time as it is a cool gig. I have however made a new zine called Dismay as part of the research i was doing into making a book/poster for the design project i just mentioned…so that was fun.

 

Also my other zine End Game is now in stock and available at Sticky Institute!

I did manage to find the time to make it to the Everfresh launch and collect my copy of their new book. It’s very cool so if Melbourne street art is your thing, do yourself a favour and head on over to their site and check it out.

And finally just for fun, here is a pic of some crazy kids i came across on the tram the other night.

Oh…and i also found a spare few hours to get to the Mike Parr talk at ACCA. Interesting talk…different to what i a was expecting but enjoyable all the same…and btw the dude is very smart. Later days…

Enjoy!
