Next month I’m taking part in a group exhibition putting the spotlight on the Art and Artists of Geelong. Taking over a vacant shop in Market Square the exhibition hopes to be a real spectacular to the point that it will draw large amounts of attention to a need to further focus on promoting and funding the Arts in Geelong. There will be a large amount of artists taking part and a wide range of styles, so there is bound to be something amongst it for everyone.

So help make this statement and come to the opening night:

Exhibition Dates: 8th – 31st July, 2011

My recent group show at Oxide Gallery with Glen Fry and Kerry Russell has been given a bit of a review over at the Art in Geelong blog. So if you wish to have a look at a few of the works from the show get on over to the blog. While your there be sure to have a browse around the site as Deirdre Carmichael has been putting in some serious effort to document exhibitions and the work of Geelong Artists. (Thanks Deirdre!)

Space Invaders is an exhibition now open at the NGA in Canberra. It is probably one of the most important exhibitions relating to street art that has been seen in Australia. It gives the artform some real respect and places it into a serious art context. So if this is your thing and you can get up there it will be well worth the effort.

Below is a link to a story about the exhibition off the ABC…in it you can see one of my ‘Think Tank’ stickers on display up there.

Well its been a few weeks since i have updated here. So it has been interesting times…I have been busy with work stuff but was also out of action for a bit with a torn calf muscle…yes painful, and it went pop…out loud!

The Sweet Streets festival has finally come to a close. It proved to be sucessful for me with my painting in the award show selling, as well as four prints i had in the folio on the mech desk. My piece created in the collingwood underground art park also found a home as part of the charity auction. There were a few serious bargins to be had at the auction, so if you missed it be sure to get along to next years one if you want to take home some seriously cool art at great prices, and help a charity in the process.

Anyway, I will be updating a bit more over the coming week, but here are a few cool shots from the collingwood underground. I only had time to get some pasties together…but its all good!

Head to head with HaHa…mine is the skull stencil. You can also see the magnifying glass by phoenix the street artist, and some little men by Civil. (Not sure who did the quote piece or the pyramid one)

Sexy Scissors…

My little terrorist…

No Frills Mickey vs HaHa…pretty sure he’s going to get smashed!

Peace Out!

I only had little to do with this piece, but a bunch of my images made it into a cool installation over at a new space in North Melbourne called Urban Plot Projects. The large wall collage was part of an exhibition for the Melbourne Fringe festival titled Archeologies of the Future, and to officially open the space. Others with work on the wall include Pheelix, Ha Ha, Phoenix the Street Artist, Breakdown Press…plus a bunch of others. If you get over there be sure also to check out the cool over sized paper cranes made from billposters by Ben Millar in the gallery section!

And below a bit of an overview shot of the work, plus Ha Ha hard at work on it.

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)

Just dropped in and saw the new Ron Mueck exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne). It was really quite an amazing experience, and most certainly well worth the visit if you are in town. Oversized hyperrealism sculptures are not the sort of art you get to see everyday. Catch it while its on.
