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 […]

Outside the Box was an exhibition featuring 100 Australian based artists, in the month of October 2016 at No Vacancy Gallery, conceived and activated by Just Another Agency. This exhibition was unlike any other, all artists placed on a level playing field, no matter their status, experience, style, or technique. Each creative will have exactly 8 […]

Only in Melbourne would you find a Toyota Camry crashed straight into a tree, abandoned and left for weeks, spray painted gold and turned into a street art installation. The day after the midas touch was added by an anonymous artist, the story goes viral and gets featured on Broadsheet and The Age Then a couple of days […]

Rone started leaving his mark on Melbourne’s streets and laneways back in 2004 around the time the infamous Everfresh Studios began. Over the last decade, his career has skyrocketed and he is now one of those highly sought after street artists, nearly always travelling to the next street art festival or off to paint a massive mural on the […]

Revolver has been a madly successful club in Melbourne for decades and has always welcomed all types of artists to paint and paste up on their walls. They have a large space indoors called The Poster Wall as well as the wall in The Smoking Yard which are regularly updated. One of the early artists to have dropped past was […]

What an interesting week it’s been for Melbourne street art. Soon after the snapchat fight between Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Taylor Swift, went viral, Melbourne artist LUSH whipped whipped up a controversial memorial piece to Swift in Hosier lane, with the face updated with a character and text changed to Harambe, and then yet again altered – this time with […]

On my recent trip to Tokyo I was lucky enough to hook up with Jin who took me on an awesome day of paintspotting accompanied by his two sons Nino and Nico It can be quite difficult to find all the artwork in a city you’re not familiar with, especially when you are short of time. These […]

I was approached by The Space Agency to arrange some artists to paint an old building at the Preston market that had been disused and empty for two years. With the help of Duke who had just finished the the inaugural Meeting of Styles Melbourne, the site was prepared, buffed (with the generous support of […]

GOONHUGS the street artist – I love his work and think he is one of a kind. Best known for his stickers and paste ups which can be found slapped up all over Melbourne, as well as the odd total shop front and bus shelter takeover. I was seriously lucky to have received a one off […]

First there was an Instagram shout out, then I received a little heads up with the finer details of an exhibition that was about to happen, and then The Age  article came out. The media article made the exhibition install even more difficult as the security were now on high alert at the National Gallery of Victoria  – […]
