Sorry this post is so late. I’ve had an injured hand, so typing has been a pain, literally… Here’s my round up for August. I’m calling this month the Video Edition, cos I don’t think I can recall a month where so many awesome videos came out… Here we go…
To start off check out this great video from Jack Douglas. Jack is a talented Melbourne street artist and tattooist; this video shows some of his street and tattoo work. His characters are always awesome.
Another rad video featuring local writer BOLTS smashing some walls across Melbourne with his always super tight style.
Do you know what a “bogan” is? It’s an Australian colloquialism, this video from Melbourne writer AEON (created alongside VNA magazine) gives you a perfect explanation of the Aussie Bogan, lost in London.
LINZ from Queensland visited Melbourne and painted this great piece. LINZ also talks about his time as a writer and how things have changed so much over the years.
This video from Spacerunner is definitely my favourite video for the month. SIMR and Rides showing us how it’s done painting one of Melbourne’s trains in the dark of the night.
Check out this video featuring interviews with Rone, Sandra Powell and Andrew King discussing their views on street art in galleries and the streets and the general attitude towards the art recently in Melbourne.
A new video from LUSH.
And finally Reka painted this epic 8 story wall in Copenhagen.
Then on the last weekend of August, something I’ll probably never see again happened. ITN Architects, of the HIVE building fame, were putting the finishing touches on their latest graffiti inspired building, by hoisting 3 old Hitachi trains onto the roof. A pretty surreal sight I must say. Walking down a residential street in Collingwood and seeing a train in the street was pretty damn amazing.
More photos on the ITN Facebook page.
My favourite shots from the Streets from AllThoseShapes. Awesome as usual.
I was also happy to see Shane is releasing a book capturing his many many photos from over the years.
