A night on the town…

If you haven’t already heard the buzz new york based street art star Swoon is in Melbourne for an exhibition at Metro Gallery. I was lucky enough to meet her this week and got to go on a little run around melb on thursday night with her and a few others.

No Frills Toxic Mickey meet Swoon – Hosier Lane

This one above was the first one i came across before i got to meet her. Looks like Mickey has seen better days!

Swoon unrolling the goodness…massive woodcuts with intricate handcut backgrounds designed to really make the pieces become one with the environment.

Getting messy wheatpaste style.

On the wall…AC/DC lane Melbourne

There were a few people getting up or helping out including HAHA, Vexta, Drab, Junky and Tonez.

HAHA getting down with the wheatpaste.

Thanks Ms Tonez for the above pic.

I just recieved news confirming that i have my artist books/zines being included in an exhibition this September at Monash University in Melbourne. The exhibition and and the accompanying publication is going to be called, The Silent Scream: political and social comment in books by artists. The exhibition is a joint project between Monash University Rare Books Library (http://www.lib.monash.edu.au/rare/) and the Bibliotheca Librorum apud Artificem (http://www.bibliotheca.org.au) a private collection of precious books based in New South Wales by Monica Oppen.

It’s pretty exciting news, and it feels good to have the books considered within a conceptual context…so stay tuned for further information later in the year.

ps- Below is my latest artist book just out.

The fair presented by Sticky Institute was in the degraves street underground and saw a large number of both stall holders(Over 40 tables!) and audience. I shared a table with David of Field Study, and combined we moved a descent amount of alternative and small press publications. The day saw the first outing for my new sticker packs, Sample/New World Order/Dismay zines and a bunch of new badge designs. The audience were great, i met a bunch of great new crew and overall the day was a huge success.
