Wonderwalls Port Adelaide 2015

International street artists Sainer and Bezt of Etam Cru (Poland), Askew One and Elliot Francis Stewart (NZ) will headline a stellar line-up of local, national and international artists who will transform Port Adelaide into a giant, interactive canvas as part of the Wonderwalls festival in January.

Presented by Renewal SA and The Hours, together with City of Port Adelaide Enfield and Ironlak, Wonderwalls the free three day street art festival will run from January 23rd-25th with large scale murals, artist talks and entertainment.

The festival kicks off on Friday night with an official launch party at the recently upgraded Flour Shed at Hart’s Mill. The free event includes live mural painting, guest DJ’s and food trucks and provides an opportunity for festival-goers to meet the artists and purchase exhibition works.

On Saturday, budding photographers can bring their cameras and join one of the two free Canon photo tours to learn professional tips on how to capture the creation of the large scale murals amongst Port Adelaide’s festival atmosphere, followed by a laneway street party on Saturday night which will feature food and drink offerings from local traders Mayfair Bakery and Red Lime Shack.

Artist talks, an art exhibition in the Flour Shed and a walking tour with Verb Syndicate, are presented across the weekend as the large scale works take shape.

All events are free to attend.

Outside: The Pillars Project – Brisbane

In the fierce lead up to the ‘cultural celebrations’ of the G20, Brisbane city has seen a number of creative transformations. One we hope can withstand the test of ‘world leader time’ is The Pillars Project.

Thanks to Queensland Rail, Brisbane City Council, the accredited artists and the approaching arrival of some important political visitors, the massive underpass area of South Brisbane railway line is now site to an ‘outdoor art gallery’. This amazing series of enormous pillar murals each stands over seven metres tall.

The Pillars Project encompasses the work of a number of local street and graffiti artists including Gus Eagleton, Guido Van Helton, Gimiks Born, Fintan Magee and Mik Shida.

Though it is questionable why our vastly multicultural, multifaceted and multidisciplinary city council has rejected, covered up and even criminalized such creative projects in the past, any change moving towards artistic appreciation is a success to be acknowledged and commended. It almost feels as though the pillars are a long awaited award for Brisbane’s creative community. Street art you can appreciate without worrying it will be buffed out before your next visit. Hell, it’s been a long time coming. Brisbane’s finally catching up.

Interestingly, Fintan Magee has replicated the original mural that was removed by Brisbane City Council at the Cultural Center earlier this year. Causing quite a controversy at the time, the mural was removed because the buff squad claimed it to be ‘graffiti’ even after Magee had written approval to paint the mural. Created to commemorate the Brisbane floods, the mural has now been revived and is at least five times its original size. An ironic and intelligent move from Magee.

The pillars are located at the corner or Merivale and Montague road, just down from the Gallery of Modern Art in South Brisbane.

Video: Project 5 recap featuring Askew, Kyle Hughes-Odgers, 23rd Key and Alex LeHours

The team at Ambush Gallery recently brought together a great mix of artists for another round of Project 5. A yearly art project, which features Australian and International artist painting both live and in their studios, for an outdoor exhibit which eventually produces artwork to go to auction in aid of charity. A great concept, and a great way to have artists from outside of Sydney come to town and show new work.

Check out the video recap featuring Askew One, Kyle Hughes-Odgers, 23rd Key and Alex LeHours.
