Wonderwalls, a 3 day street art and graffiti festival up north in Wollongong looked awesome, featuring a great line up of Australian and International artists. From Melbourne Shida, Wonderlust, Adnate, Two One, Idiot and Sirum.
Backwoods Gallery had their last show “A Study of Hands” for 2013 and it was a cracker, continuing on in the anatomy series – which will apparently continue over ten years – epic. I particularly liked works by Dave Kinsey and Lister.
Alex Mitchell, Curator of Backwoods Gallery and writer for The Opening Hours was back in Melbourne for the month. Alex did some great studio visits with Two One, Miso and Ghostpatrol. Some great, intimate photos.
Everyone’s been talking about this abando and I can see why. David Russell managed to find his way in and capture some amazing work. I really love Slicer’s geometrical shapes filled with his signature slices, as well as Deams, and Rashe’s pieces. All of this work feels so at home in this place. I do love abandos! More here.
Today we have Lush‘s fifth comic in a 10-part series. Remember folks, Shepard Fairey and Bansky are the exceptions and even they worked their asses off for years. As Woody Guthrie said, “if you ain’t got the do re mi, folks, you ain’t got the do re mi.” What do you think? – RJ
Lush is back again this week for his third comic in a 10-part series. It’s nice to see a writer defending street art, but maybe he’s just trying to appeal to Vandalog’s audience.. What do you think? – RJ
