Job done, nothing is stopping this guy of late! Mik Shida, making the most of his last couple of weeks in Australia before another European stint has just completed this incredible tunnel installation in Brisbane’s CBD. If you’re up that way, his solo exhibition Mythographies is still on show at the Brisbane Powerhouse until September 8.
The benefits of having one of our team members now living overseas is that we can bring you some unique overseas content, and what better way to start than the recent group show at Jonathan Levine gallery in New York featuring some of the world’s most notable street, graffiti and contemporary artists.
Curated by Roger Gastman, the show featured artists such as Dabs & Myla, Huskmitnavn, Revok, Rime, Cleon Peterson, Finok, Horfee, and many more. Click below for more photos.

Melbourne based photographers Ryan Cookson and Michael Danischewski have teamed up to produce a new video portrait – FUZI UV TPK.
Throughout the 1990’s, French artist FUZI grew up in the suburbs of Paris on a diet of graffiti and gang culture as part of the prolific crew UV TPK. In the mid 90’s, he pioneered a childlike yet brutal style of graffiti known as ‘Ignorant Style’. In the last few years, he has transitioned from graffiti to tattooing and developed an international following. With clients such as Os Gemeos, Diplo, Justice and Scarlett Johansson, he continues to travel around the globe, making his mark and exhibiting his work.
Documented on a recent trip to Australia, FUZI gives an insight into his current working practice and an uncompromising look at his time in France during the mid 90’s.
Having toured this exhibition through Melbourne and Sydney, it’s fitting that it’s final stop is his hometown of Brisbane at the iconic Powerhouse. Mythographies is a multi-layered record of Shida’s progress as an artist, these painting and hardwood sculptural works let his imagination lead the path, creating a series of self proclaimed ‘spiritscapes’.
Mythographies, presented by Mild Manners Gallery and The Brisbane Powerhouse opens tomorrow evening, Wednesday 13th and then continues until September 8.
Never one to rest for long, he’s also mid way through an impressive mural covering the Creek st tunnel in Brisbane City before he jets of to Europe. Below is a picture taken this morning, still very much a work in progress, we’ll post some images of the completed wall next week.
Here’s the latest round up of recent walls and laneways in Sydney. Today’s gallery of photo’s include Adnate, Thomas Jackson, Numskull, Sare2, Nico, Bafcat, Jumbo, Sid Tapia, Pudl, The Yok, Atomiko, The Massive, Hules, and more. Click below for more photos.
