Local Sydney artist Bennett has been busy at Higher Ground Studio, re-inventing himself. His last show was a solid step into collage and mixed medium, and it seems this show titled “Can We Fly?” is again a giant step forward. A new colour palette, and more of a focus on simpler narratives. Check out some sneak peek photos below.

Shida is currently travelling around the world painting and he just posted this amazing large scale piece he painted outside of Chicago. Unfortunately the rain took over and washed away the final piece. HOWEVER, he managed to get a great shot of the wall almost finished. See more on Shida’s flickr page here.

The Calligraffiti Upside Down Tour includes exhibitions, book signings, live mural painting and lectures in Sydney, Melbourne, Auckland and Singapore. Rather than ship artwork from abroad, NSM will make site-specific art in each city. At all exhibitions and other events, the artist will be available for interviews, and on hand to sign his book Calligraffiti with personalized dedications.
The Upside Down Tour kicks off in Sydney, where Likeminded Studio is hosting an exhibition from 25 to 30 January at the artist run kind of — gallery on Oxford Street. In addition, the legendary Kinokuniya Bookstore will host an exhibition in their Wedge Gallery from 25 January until February 7, 2012. Sydney will see some live calligraffiti going up in the May’s Lane Street Art Project on 27 January.

It will be a sad day tomorrow in Brisbane when Nine Lives Gallery closes its doors in their current space. The team is taking a break from the full time gallery world and focusing on project based exhibitions. So stay tuned…
From the Nine Lives family:
“Want to take this opportunity to thank you all for the ongoing support over the last few years. We’re very happy that we’ve been able to contribute to ol’ Brisbane towns cultural landscape in some way or shape. For a long time this city’s been seen as the little sibling to its southern counterparts but we really do think that is changing. Brisbane has plenty going on and there’s a bunch of young creatives making that happen.
Come along Thursday, have a beer. We’d love to see you.”
Below is the flyer for their last show by none other than FRENCH from the UK. Get down…
