One Day Sundays at The Projects – Phibs, Jumbo, Scott Marsh, Scount, Numskull & Beastman

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.

Overseas Action: Catching up with Luke Taaffe

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.

See more of Luke’s work here.

Video: Reka in London

If you’ve missed what Reka’s been up to overseas, then you’ve probably been sick, off instagram, or your internet connection has been down.

Reka has most definitely been making his mark in Europe. Painting multiple times (at various sizes) in London, Paris, Denmark and many more cities.

VNA and itdrewself have teamed up to get an insight from the man himself. Short but sweet…
