Denial from Canada launches his new solo exhibition Control Alt Delete at the VS Gallery in Richmond, Melbourne. Check out the video below of artist painting the whole front facade of this new gallery.    

When I was asked to get involved in this project, I just could not resist. Using street artists to change the towers of inferno outside Crown Casino into fire breathing dragons to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year sounded like such a fun and unique activation. Five awesome artists were chosen – Conrad Bizjak Facter Makatron Ruskidd and Mulga check […]

As a documenter of street art and graffiti myself, there are some other photographers out there that I respect and admire – first and foremost Henry Chalfant and Martha Cooper for their amazing efforts in the 70’s and 80’s in New York, and then comes Rennie Ellis who was taking photos of graffiti he spotted in the lanes and […]

Sunshines Melbourne Streetart & Graffiti Top 10 – October 2017

Over the last few years, I have had the absolute pleasure of meeting and spending some time with Japanese artist Senekt whilst he called Melbourne home. Over this period, I have seen some amazing walls that he has painted, enjoyed his beautiful hospitality, been to his awesome exhibitions and he has featured on the blog […]

Rone has just launched The OMEGA Project and totally transformed a quaint abandoned house in Melbourne into a temporary exhibition only open for viewing for just seven days before being demolished. Seven female portraits appear like ghosts – one in each room, inviting the onlooker to leave their reality and immerse themselves in the immediate surroundings teeming […]

Will Coles – the man that used to call Sydney his home launched his new solo exhibition aptly titled FUCK SYDNEY last night.  Realistically the artist and his incredible sculptures should have called Melbourne home but instead of leaving Sydney to move to our fair city, he jetted off to Spain never to be seen […]

It’s not everyday you get to meet a true street art legend but that’s exactly what happened in Sydney recently. Shepard Fairey – the man behind the “Andre the Giant has a posse” sticker campaign, the killer Obey clothing label, and the Obama “Hope” poster, was in Australia as part of Vivid Festival 2017. Whilst […]

                         

There are certain artists that really inspire me and my imagination – I see their work around town, don’t know their identity and yet fall in LOVE with what they do. I look at Bode Klein’s previous work on the streets and think wow, what an awesome message, clearly a lot of thought has gone […]

Although traditionally Vienna is known as the City of Music, it’s probably better known for being the home of Sigmund Freud, one of the greatest minds of our time. These days Viennese born street artist @Nychos forms part of a new breed of young artists proving there is more to his home town than the Waltz and […]

Deams has been a favourite of mine for years, so much so that an epic work of his features on the cover of my book Street Art Now. As part of the legendary AWOL crew from Melbourne, he creates incredible geometric murals that I think fall under the category of graffuturism. I have known him to be a […]

Unwell Bunny is one of those super talented artists that has evolved from writing graff pieces to painting large street art murals to having solo exhibitions not just in Australia but Amsterdam, Los Angeles and Paris. Residing in Melbourne, we have been fortunate in this town to see so many of his works, commissions, go […]

Fourteen Melbourne based artists were each commissioned to paint a panel to be displayed outside The Art of Banksy – with a plan to sell them all and raise money for charity when the exhibition finishes in January 2017. The funds raised through the online auction will be split between two Melbourne charities – STREAT […]

Q. What do you do when you take over a beautiful old building that’s about to be demolished? A. Offer it to your mates and a vast range of artists to use as a blank canvas before you put on possibly the best street art exhibition of the year! Here are some of the incredible […]

I was contacted about The Art Of Banksy exhibition coming to Melbourne a while ago, and I had mixed emotions. It was not authorised but at the same time all the eighty original artworks were sold by Banksy himself thus creating a secondary market for his works. I was assured there were no pieces in […]
