…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.

If your wondering why I have been a bit quiet of late apart from the usual work stuff and an illness in the family I have also currently got a fractured arm from coming off the pushie. It is going to keep me out of action for the next 3-6 weeks. Not fun!

Anyway, In the mean time I have devised a way around the problem…

Thanks to Paul for the donated frame and mc escher for the image to collage on…hehe

Until I am back in action happy new year and keep safe.

enjoy!

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.

Drab doing what he does so well – Tatterstalls Lane

And finally a small one of mine going up in AC/DC  lane…

Thanks Ms Tonez for the above pic.

Subtle Stealth Bomber pasted to the wall.

All up it was a really good session, Swoon was really nice btw…and we all got to change the walls of melbourne for a little while. And if your in melbs drop in to Until Never Gallery and see Shida’s first Melb Exhibition…it is awesome and well worth visiting.

Until next time….enjoy!

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!

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!

Nine images from a set of twelve paintings
