So, we thought as a little surprise to add to our Semi Permanent experience, we’d host a day at The Projects in Marrickville.
That’s TOMORROW. In association with Semi Permanent and One Day Crew, tomorrow (26th May) we’ll be hosting a day of music, drinks and live painting by some of Sydney’s best. Numskull, Beastman, Jumbo, Scott Marsh, Phibs and Skount (all the way from Amsterdam) will be collaborating on the carpark wall all day from 11am. Come down, say hi and enjoy the Autmun sunshine!
As part of The Hours involvement in the soon to be opened The 4217 in Surfers Paradise, Marty Routledge was commissioned to paint two large font murals on the exterior of the building, establishing The 4217 as a strong supporter of hand painted signage and helping to grow the local art scene on the Gold Coast. Once again the local guys from Digital Cinematix were there to capture it all on video, and also convinced Marty to talk on camera about his artistic background and his passion for sign painting.

Whilst in Sydney for his exhibition opening at The Tate Gallery in Sydney this week, Skount painted the Hours curated Project Ugly Billboard in Annandale. Here are some pics of the progress and the amazing result which he titled ‘Looking Through A Fake Identity That Projects a Black Hole’.
Not many people know about Adelaide’s busy art scene, but by now you most definitely should.
Oi You! Festival recently opened with a giant collection of originals and prints from some of the world’s most reknown street and graffiti artists including Bansky, Phil Frost, Faile, David Choe and many more. Along with the exhibition came art giveaways, screenings, street art tours and a series of large scale murals painted around Adealide city by Rone, Lister, Vans the Omega, Beastman, Kab 101, Gary Seaman, Seb Humphreys and more.
Last month saw the completion of the first mural for The Hours Tower Mural Project at The 4217 in Surfers Paradise, Australia. Curated by The Hours, the ongoing art project aims to bring well known Australian artists to the Gold Coast to collaborate together using the three storey high lift-shaft at The 4217 as their canvas, providing Surfers Paradise with a truly unique large scale and evolving piece of public art.
The first collaborative mural for the project was painted by Beastman (Syd) and Jae Copp (GC) last month, and the local guys from Digital Cinematix were there to film it all.
Big thanks to The 4217 for supporting public art on the Gold Coast, and for providing the huge wall to paint. The 4217 will be opening in a few months, keep an eye out for more Hours activity there in the future. Please visit their website for more information – www.the4217.com.au
