REVIEW | ‘Current’ by David Hockney at The NGV Melbourne

Try as hard as you might, nobody can put their finger on just what art does and means to the world. For some, it is an essential divide between our primitive counterparts, for others, an honest expression that words can't fathom. However, no matter where your ethos lie, art can always be pinpointed to the uncontrollable force of time. Either capsuling … Continue reading REVIEW | ‘Current’ by David Hockney at The NGV Melbourne

REVIEW | Rashe ‘Vectorized Reality’ at Lanes End Gallery

It's December 2016 and it's been quite a year to say the least. Iconic musicians have fallen, a combover have won a presidency and ebola already seems like a myth, but with all the bad that goes on, we must always move toward the future and calculate the good.

Moses & Taps™ ‘Corporate Identity’ at Golden Hands Gallery, Hamburg

Note: I didn't attend this show in person, only through images released online Since it's inception, graffiti has always been about branding. If you saw a tag, throw up or piece delivered from one side of a city to another, there should be enough visual points to confirm that it was by the same person. Whether … Continue reading Moses & Taps™ ‘Corporate Identity’ at Golden Hands Gallery, Hamburg

ZINE | Over Time Part 2 | Melburban featuring Pasif & Lazy

What is the greatest sequel of all time? Godfather 2? Paul's Boutique? What about Low End Theory? I'm not to sure, but one of the hardest things to do, when producing work, is backing it up for the second coming. The creative field, rarely allows the same energy to carry on and flow long enough … Continue reading ZINE | Over Time Part 2 | Melburban featuring Pasif & Lazy

REVIEW | Rashe ‘Digital Dilemma’ | SOMA Gallery Space

For all its positives, the digital world has its own weight in faults. Whether these positives outweigh the negatives is anyones guess, but even today, the online space is a particularly conflicting place to be around. Opinions, unlimited information and social interactions make it a key component in distracting us from the more important things in life. … Continue reading REVIEW | Rashe ‘Digital Dilemma’ | SOMA Gallery Space

REVIEW | CUTBACK DOCUMENTARY

The documentary format has been synonyms with street art and graffiti, since it's popularised inception. From the hey days of Style Wars and Stations of The Elevated, to the more recent Exit Through The Gift Shop, these intertwining cultures have been welcomed and influential to screens, both large and small. But, as a self proclaimed film buff, I … Continue reading REVIEW | CUTBACK DOCUMENTARY

Since starting this website, some 4 years ago, there are some phrases and a linking of thoughts that have followed me since it's inception, shared by a number of people who previously or still contribute to it's culture in the past and present.

DIZZYHIZZY X SAVE YOURSELF COLLABORATION LAUNCH

I've been lucky enough to spend part of this year in cities outside of Melbourne - way outside of Melbourne. By coincidence, they have both been massive metropolis' packed to the brim with citizens living and falling over each other from sunrise to sunset. With days spent exploring capitals such as Manila and Tokyo, any observer … Continue reading DIZZYHIZZY X SAVE YOURSELF COLLABORATION LAUNCH

ZINE | OVER TIME PART 1 | MELBURBAN

For all the internet's shortcomings, the addition of Instagram would have to be one of its better formations. While we've had Facebook, Flickr, Tumblr, Myspace, Twitter and a bunch of other time (and in some cases, money) sucking formats to sink our teeth into, the visual connections with Instagram are instant. That's why creative cultures, such … Continue reading ZINE | OVER TIME PART 1 | MELBURBAN

GALLERY | Nemco ‘Grand Sale’ Solo Show at Rooftop Bar Gallery Space

It seems like only yesterday that Milan, Nemco, placed his painted covered belongings on Australian soil for an extended vacation painting in and around our popular Eastern plains. But in that time, he has displayed some of the most diversely interesting nuggets of outdoor art that I've personally seen in quite some time. Taking influences from turn … Continue reading GALLERY | Nemco ‘Grand Sale’ Solo Show at Rooftop Bar Gallery Space
