These little stencils of mine have started popping up around Melb. this week…

…and a couple of overview shots in situ.

I think the end is near for the old cathode rays also…

and below how the stencil translates into one of my new paintings on canvas.

Apart from the fact that i started my big weekend on thursday with the Gordon Institute’s Grad Show, Friday night was the launch of ‘Pinned’ over at Boom Gallery. A crazy night where i somehow managed to sell 12 works…Yep, you read that correctly! Not what i was expecting…but more than happy to accept. ūüėČ

Shots of the show @ Boom Gallery below…

A big thanks to Boom and those who continue to support my art by acquiring pieces!

So after having a big night in celebration, I had to be awake and up at Boxhill Hospital to give back to the community and do a makeover of their Adolecent Health Unit with a bunch of other melb artists bright and early. Organised by Doil over at the Melbourne Street Tours some of the other artists included the man himself Doil, Adi, Tad Evil, Rusty, Makatron and some of the boys from the Napier Crew. If there was any fear i was going to fall asleep during the day from the big night, that quickly went away due to the complete…and i mean complete soaking that i got on the way to the hospital.

Anyway, below are some pix from the day once the rain disappeared…

Above: A piece in progress I did with TAD using my Think Tank image.

Below: A couple of overview shots.

And below a couple of my fav pieces from the day, the first one by the boys from Napier Crew and the second by Makatron.

And finally below a few of my NoFrills cans have finally started to hit the streets…

On Sunday the madness continued with the scramble to get ready to go set up a table over at the Charles Street Artist’s Market over in Brunswick. A beautiful day in the sun, lots of great live music and good people. So keep your ear to the ground for the next market which I think is running monthly.

Phew…feel tired just retelling this. Think i will sleep well tonight.

Peace Out…NF!

Today about a dozen or so artists hit up the back section of Hosier lane in Melbourne to do a wall in protest of the BP oil spill. There were some of the familiar suspects from the scene including HaHa, Civil and Mags(from brisvegas) among others. It was a pretty cool day with everyone helping each other out and working well together to link in a whole bunch of diverse styles and create a bit of unity surrounding this important issue.

Below the hive of activity:

I think this piece was my favorite for the day. It kind of sumed up the overall message in a light hearted way. I have a few process shots so you can see it coming together.

This work was also pretty rocking, and a massive stencil¬†¬†The text is a little burried in the image but it says ‘ Cars suck ‘, and hopefully it works on a subliminal level. Bikes rule!

Here are a bunch of other shots of the work getting made.

below are a couple of stencils by HAHA:

¬†The crew were still going when i left for the day…so get on down there if you are in the neighbourhood, as its well worth a look at the wall. Those of you who follow my tees may be familiar with these little images. ūüėČ

and this one…

We also helped put up a set of the new Breakdown Press Peace Posters. These are also floating about in Melb for free, so keep your eyes peeled as they are well worth a look.

If you go for a wander down Hosier Lane in Melbourne at the moment you may stumble on the new Obey piece to go with the exhibition of his prints upstairs at Until Never Gallery.

and here is another section…

Methinks it looks pretty sweet. Get there before it gets burried in tags. There were a few pieces in the Citylights lightboxes also.

I also stumbled across one of my old stickers.

And this cool David Bowie dog sitting in a classic old car.

Still in it’s bubble wrap…

I just got my painting ‘Viaticus Radix Malus’ or in english, ‘Money is the root of all evil’ back from being framed. I think it looks very sexy. I opted away from my usual plain black minimal and modern looking¬†frame for an ornate¬†gilt or gold frame. I think the irony adds to the strength of the message in the image.

About a month or so back, Blek was in Old Melbourne town for an exhibition. I’m pretty sure this is a street piece he left behind as a gift to adourn the walls of melbourne (In Hosier Lane). The Ned Kelly stencils¬†on the left¬†are by Ha Ha. For the same medium, its quite a contrast of styles! Anywho, just something i came across in my wanderings.

For those who don’t know Blek le Rat, he was doing stencils before Banksy.
