Here is my new print, “Ceci n’est pas un Banksy”.  Sold a few of these over at the Sweet Streets festival. It’s just a bit of a piss take on how anything using a stencil is called a Banksy. What about Blek? …among others!

Anyway, this was originally made just as a tongue in cheek image for a friend…originally titled, “The treachery of copyright images”. Looks sweet in the flesh…a solid and lush deep flat blue to it.

Email me if you want one…going for about $70 AUD (plus postage).

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!

Well, its been an interesting few days. I have made a new small Mash Up Zine playing with the idea of reintroducing the artists hand into a photocopied zine to embody it with a bit more ownership and value…Think the Artist’s mark versus Art in the age of mechanical reproduction.

Zine – End Game available soon from Sticky Institute in Melbourne.

Small hand sprayed edition of 20

…so keep your eyes peeled as they will go quick!

Exhibition – I also was lucky enough to get one of my paintings selected for the Sweet Streets street art exhibition coming up in Melbourne this October. It wasn’t the work I was hoping was selected, but getting a work on the wall is all the same at the end of the day. Anyway, to find out more about whats on during the festival follow the sweet streets link above.

Mail – Today I received a few awesome paste ups from the crew over at UK based Prefab77. The pasters will be hitting the streets of Melbourne soon, maybe during Sweet Streets…so keep your eyes peeled.

Or go visit their site and see their awesome art >>

Old Friends – I caught up with Mel Kerr, a Melbourne artist and an old friend of mine this week at her studio. Her work inspired by suburban interiors and urban exteriors blends fine art beautifully with inspiration from street art.

 So go check her art out here >>

 

Copyright Breach – And the final bit… not as fun as the rest above, is today when I went to log into ebay I found one of my t-shirt designs for sale on ebays front page from a seller/company over in Thailand. The funny thing is, that its not even a particularly good design of mine. They had also ripped a few from mechline, and a few others designers also. I guess if you look at it one way its flattering. But if you look at it another way it just pisses you off.

Anyway, at least I can say things are never boring!

Enjoy,

No Frills
