We have visited Cockatoo Island a couple of times now and there is alot of activity (that we can’t show you yet) going on.
Max Berry painted a panel for the Artery (Dogleg Tunnel) section of the festival, along with 29 other artists. Check out the video he made below.
Also. Stay tuned for some sneaky photos this week from the island.
We are proud to be a media sponsor of Numskull‘s solo exhibition in Sydney next month, ” Mixed Messages”. Stay tuned for some preview shots and a studio visit.
Things are heating up for The Outpost Project at the moment. Some artists have already completed work on the island, and a whole shipment more of locals, interstate and international artists will be creating small to large scale paintings, walls and installations in the coming 2 weeks. Stay tuned to the site for our full coverage of the event…

Three Sixty Project launches ONE x ONE x ONE, a traveling art exhibition developed in the aim of generating funds to fuel projects that benefit underdeveloped youth markets globally.
Heading to three of Australia’s skateboard capitals Sydney, Melbourne and the Gold Coast, and with artwork curated in a collaborative effort by Qwux (Rah Collective), Josh Thorsen (Kid9) and Just Another Agency, the show will exhibit 55 skateboard artworks designed by a range of prolific Australian artists including Ben Brown, Bennett, Rebecca Murphy, Mr Singh, Cupco and Mia Taninaka, of which when sold, all profits will go into youth community projects.
“When we first came across the 360 project, we thought it was a great concept for such a worthy cause. So when Paul approached us to help curate, we couldn’t wait to get some of our artists involved. With the variety of talent on board (excuse the pun) we can’t wait to see how everyone interprets the brief. It should be a great night, no matter which city you’re in.” – Toby & Melika, Just Another Agency
The concept of art and skateboarding is nothing new, as both have long gone hand-in-hand as popular forms of creative expression.
“As a kid I always loved skate graphics – the whole outlaw, do it yourself vibe of skating extends to music, lifestyle and of course, art. Some of the most creative and influential graphics in popular culture and life scrawled on a skateboard deck. I’m always trying to make the graphic look as nuts as I possibly can – super stupid, funny an cool,” comments artist Ben Brown.
The event features some of Australia’s best artistic talent and is supported by uprising galleries Lo-Fi (Sydney), No Vacancy (Melbourne) and 19Karen Gallery (Gold Coast) bringing together the art and skateboarding communities in an atmosphere that encourages the cultivation of expression and philanthropy.
Successful project implementations by Three Sixty Project to date include the Elevate Youth Centre – Bali Indonesia, Skateistan Pnom Penh Cambodia and One Friday Skate Ministry Philippines (please see attached for further details).
