Last month, prolific muralist ROA (interviewed) was in Townsville painting a few of his favorite things. Commissioned by the city council as part of the Street Art Activation Framework in a push to make the city the arts capital of the North Australia, the Belgium painter has once again chosen local fauna as his inspiration – the Goanna, Sugar Glider, and turtle resting on top of a crocodile. Take a look photos of the three murals below… Photo credit: Regan Tamanui (top image) & Tom Dickson (other images). […]
DALeast (interviewed) is currently globetrotting again, participating in festivals and different projects worldwide. He spent last few weeks on the west coast of Australia, taking part at the Public 2015 festival (more coverage here) in Perth. Getting assigned an unusual, non flat surface, the Chinese artist once again showcased the strength and uniqueness of his style and technique. Working in a country that is surrounded with oceans, he painted this massive image of a crashing wave. The dynamics and power of the wave was cleverly accented by extending the image over […]
After sharing with you Phelgm’s massive contribution to PUBLIC 2015, we now have news of another participant in this year’s event – Ian Strange, the artist formerly known as Kid Zoom. Continuing his series of large-scale interventions, the Australian artist will be presenting five photographic works as well as an immersive film and sound installation reflecting on suburban Perth. Like his previous projects, Strange has painted directly onto homes and hopes to “to create a body of work that transforms the Australian suburban home to unmask it’s […]
Working on a massive new project in Western Australia, Phlegm has painted over four 36 meter high grain silos near the Wheatbelt town of Northam for PUBLIC 2015, arranged by FORM. Working 10 hours a day for two weeks straight, the prolific British street artist left his mark with a series of impossible flying machines (inspired by the area’s iconic hot air balloons) and his signature characters rendered beautifully in his usual manner. Four of the other CBH Group silos at their Avon site to the right were […]
From 5 – 13 April 2014, Perth in Australia hosted Public, “a celebration of urban art and creativity” whose goal is to “bring to Perth and the Pilbara urban, visual, and digital artists from around the world.” During this event, around 45 artists from Australia and around the world, created around 30 large-scale urban artworks, transforming walls and laneways with street art, projections, installations, and public events. The list of names involved in this massive project is impressive – Remed, Kyle-Hughes Odgers, Maya Hayuk, 2501, […]
Ian Strage aka Kid Zoom recently introduced his latest installation, Landed, for the 2014 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art. With its focus on architecture, this large, site-specific sculptural work follows his solo exhibitions last year at the National Gallery of Victoria (covered), and at the Canterbury Museum in Christchurch (covered). For this piece, the Australian artist recreated his childhood home, a typical 1920’s suburban house that appears like it’s been dropped on the forecourt of the Art Gallery of South Australia. With it’s large size and odd positioning, taking […]
In Bondi, Australia, at the annual Sculpture by the Sea festival, David McCracken had a piece on view entitled Diminish and Ascend. The steps made from aluminum jut out on the side of a hill facing the sea and plays with perspectives to make it look like a never-ending path into the sky. Take a look at photos of the piece in different lighting and at various angles below… Photo credit: Paul David (front image), the rest specified at the bottom of image. Via My Modern Met.
Back in July, we previewed the largest project to date by our friend Ian Strange. The Australian artist formerly known as Kid Zoom had spent two years working on this exhibition, SUBURBAN, that came to an end back in late September at the National Gallery of Victoria. In those two years, he traveled through the American suburbs documenting his entire journey through film and photography in what seems to be the natural progression of his prior show HOME, a personal look into his own suburban […]
