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

“STEREODYNAMICA” BY FELIPE PANTONE | BACKWOODS GALLERY

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. "The internet killed graffiti", "You just like that bubble letter stuff", "I just… Continue reading “STEREODYNAMICA” BY FELIPE PANTONE | BACKWOODS GALLERY

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.

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

For The Kids | Stabs | Fawkner

With almost a decades worth of experience painting Melbourne's streets, it's hard to believe that this is Stabs' first ever commission wall. While we've seen thousands of small and large examples of outdoor works, along with some appearances in group shows and a couple of his own, large scale productions have never seen the light of day. And… Continue reading For The Kids | Stabs | Fawkner

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
