It’s been a long time since we’ve seen new work from Melbourne’s Drewfunk, and we’re so glad to see him back on the horse. He recently teamed up with Otis Chamberlain at Backwoods Gallery for their duo show titled “Coalescence”, a suiting name for their first show together.

We managed to poke our head around the Sydney Contemporary Art Fair last weekend to see some of Sydney and Australia’s biggest names in the gallery scene show their best work. Needless to say it was busy, so we didn’t manage to snap photos of EVERYTHING, but here’s a little taster of what we saw and enjoyed.
On the Weekend Chippendale closed it’s streets to host Beams Festival, offering a smorgasbord of Live Music, food vendors & large format installations. We were commissioned to respond to the brief based on ‘New World Cities’. Redbull Curates Beams Festival Scott Marsh
Signed & Numbered is a street/low brow and fine art print store. They offer a great stable of artists including Ghospatrol, Vexta and a whole heap of other well known Melbourne and Australian artists. This is their second store now, which boasts an original window painting by Ghostpatrol on the street. If you’re in Melbourne, it’s definitely worth a visit.
To celebrate their 4th year in operation, MILS Gallery presents “Headgear”. Their annual group showing which briefs a stable of talneted local artists to create head masks in whichever fashion they choose. More details below or on their website here.

Join aMBUSH Gallery as it ushers Project Five Volume Five into its new home in burgeoning creative hub Darling Quarter with a three-day live painting event on Darling Quarter’s Village Green. The four featured artists will transform Darling Quarter into an open-air studio from 6-9pm on Friday 27 September as they paint before their public audience, and will continue from 12-4pm on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 September.
Over four weeks, Project Five will present a series of art events, including an exhibition of works by the featured artists at OPEN – aMBUSH Gallery and Darling Quarter’s free public art space, a series of free kids’ urban art clinics facilitated by World Famous Westsyde, and an invitation-only auction of the works created during the live painting weekend. All proceeds from the auction are dedicated to the development of the Information and Cultural Exchange’s (ICE) youth arts program. Over the course of Project Five’s previous four volumes, ICE has benefitted in over $52,000 in proceeds from the auctions, an achievement of Project Five that was recognised in the 2011 National AbaF Awards.
