I thought the Neon Golden tour left some marks on the city, but turns out Shida wasn’t finished.
After relocating to Canggu, Bali in June of this year, Beastman (Bradley Eastman) created a series of new paintings. The new colourful and geometric works were heavily inspired by his new surroundings – the landscape, people, industry, customs and cultures. He was invited to exhibit the paintings at the Deus Temple of Enthusiasm in Canggu in September, here are some photos of the exhibition and paintings.
IT’S ALL AROUND YOU (Itulah Semuanya Sekeliling Anda)
An exhibition of new paintings by Beastman
After relocating to Canggu from Sydney, this exhibition is the artist’s own reflection of the surrounding landscape, people, industry, customs and cultures. As part of an ongoing body of artwork, these colourful, geometric paintings further expand the artist’s distinctive visual language and design aesthetic, whilst exploring ideas and themes of potential futures, abstract landscapes, growth patterns, balance, new lifeforms and human interaction with the elements of nature.
Opening – Friday 25th September 2015 at 7pm
Deus Temple of Enthusiasm – Jalan Batu Mejan No.8, Canggu, Bali

West Australian artist Daek William sent us a selection of treats that wrapped up his 2014 year, included a kooky video of his travels over a year, a selection of new artworks that encompasses the love for a fine pair of footwear and some of the larger scale works we are use to seeing by the beach town based artist.
Roachi and Numskull, together with Puma created a unique mural over two cities. One half was painted in New York City, the other half in Sydney, Australia. Filmed by Paste Studios, this short video documents the brother duo as they paint a wall together on different sides of the world.
Such a great selection of events and creatives to be amongst.
Take a look and get voting!

We first met Ross Liew through his mural arts festival Graffiato and have been watching him curate and produce amazing projects ever since. A real pioneer and progressive front man for street art in New Zealand.
Ross has just released his latest project, ‘If These Walls Could Talk’. A series of online documentaries about some of NZ’s most notable street art and graffiti art names including Askew One, BMD, Benjamin Work, Mica Still and Elliot Francis Stewart. A rare and intimate insight into the background and current process of these artists.
Sit back, take some time and watch all of them below, and find out more on the website ifthesewallscouldtalk.co.nz

“Created by Ross Liew (Cut Collective) and with the help from NZ On Air Ignite funding scheme, If These Walls Could Talk focuses on five street artists looking at what compels them to paint outside, what drives them artistically, and how they navigate identity, community, ownership and the creative process.
The works of Askew One, Benjamin Work, Mica Still, Elliot Francis Stewart and BMD are documented on video and online, with the series also providing a direct link between the walls painted and the stories captured – both from the online world to the artwork (in learning about the concept and the history of the artist, including their artistic statement with the work), and vice versa, with a link at each mural site available to transport patrons to the ITWTC online hub. “
Vexta is originally from Melbourne, but has since moved overseas to New York City, where she has been exhibiting and painting walls like this one, in Jersey City. See more from Vexta here.
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.
