Wow. What a weekend. First off we spoke in front of 1600 people for SP, then we hosted a show at The Tate, then Sunday came around and the sun was shining so we threw a party. A big thankyou to everyone that came out to The Projects in Enmore to round off the Semi Permanent weekend.
Basically, we didn’t want the fun to end, so decided to throw an un-official/official Semi Permanent event which saw artists Jumbo, Phibs, Numskull, Beastman, Phibs and Scott Marsh paint a collaborative mural in the carpark at The Vic, in Enmore.
One Day provided the music and good folks at The Vic supplied the free bbq, which as always, took a long time to cook but a short time to dissapear. A massive thank you to our friends at Ironlak, who provided the paint, and thanks to everyone that came out for what was a nice day in the sun.
Luke Taaffe is a former resident of Australia and one of the many artists to take to the United States to tackle a new crowd.
Luke was a former resident artist at the infamous World’s End studios in Surry Hills, and has since been busy creating a whole new body and style of work in California. It’s obvious to see the influence these new surroundings have had on his work, and it’s interesting to see him using these Cali style beach themes in more object/sculptural work, like below in his jigsaw puzzled wetsuit blanket.
Interesting new music video by Midnight Juggernauts for the single ‘Memorium’ just launched on The Creators Project. Basically a whirlwind visual documentary of Computer Generated Image (CGI) and its evolution from 1951 to now. A great interview with director and band member Vincent Vendetta here. Worth the watch.
Look who just popped back onto our radar without warning!
Stupid Krap has been around for a long time and is the brainchild of Ben Frost. They have released prints for some of Australia’s most recognizable street, graffiti and low brow artists, including Dmote, Kid Zoom, Anthony Lister, Ben Frost, Beastman, Dan Baldwin, Numskull and many, many more.
Well, turns out they’re back, in a very big way, with a whole new stable of artists that will knock your socks off.

Ryokou is a five part documentary series put together by a few talented friends at Projucer, after a successful pozible campaign to get it off the ground they travelled to Japan to follow the journey of World Champion cyclist Shane Perkins whilst competing in the 2012/13 Keirin competition.
So, a couple of months back, we asked Will to paint the Project Ugly billboard in Annandale. We were super stoked with the outcome as it really was the most unique and interesting way of using the space.
Dean Lever was on site to catch all of the action, and made us this neat little short film about the process. Thanks Dean.
