The Australian Design Centre has recently opened another great exhibition showcasing the remarkable work of Lyn Balzer and Tony Perkins. A mix of photography, sculpture and jewellery, this show highlights how artists and designers can work across many different mediums.
“Scented Intoxication is inspired by the small details that exist in nature and explores the material lifecycle of leather, wood, and marble, benchmarked by their signature scent. With a strong emphasis on using offcuts, re-using materials, and testing object resilience, the exhibition straddles the spheres of fashion, lifestyle, and design with inherent flavours of the Australian landscape.”

We are proud to present the finally recap video for Wonderwalls Wollongong 2015. A short video documenting the four day event which brings together artists from all over Australia and the world. Massive thanks to all of our sponsors, supporters and volunteers… and of course Simon from Verb Syndicate. The response we get from both the public and the artists each year is so inspiring. Here’s to many more Wonderwalls to come…

Really nice photo recap of the ‘CURSES’ show which opened in Melbourne a couple of weeks back – presented by Black Canyon and hosted by OKLA, a beautiful warehouse space in Collingwood. A big crowd came out for the Friday night opening to check out new work by Georgia Hill, Sean Morris, Melissa Grisancich, James McKenna and Nathan Alexis Brown.

Sunday Walls is a new monthly event at The Lord Gladstone, curated by the Good Space team and The Opening Hours which hosts a rotating roster of the best graffiti artists around Australia. Last weekend featured the likes of Sofles, John Kaye, Buttons and more.
Each month we’ll be bringing you these events, featuring painting all day, live DJ’s like Joyride and more, plus the epic food and beers that The Good lord offers. Stay tuned for the video recap by Billy Zammit, and the announcement of next month’s event. In the meantime here’s a little taste of what went down…
Firstly, we’d like to thank Joel Moore for directing the biggest Wonderwalls Festival to date, and of course the City of Port Adelaide & Renewal SA for inviting us to bring Wonderwalls to their city, Ironlak, Verb Syndicate and all of our other sponsors, supporters and volunteers. We’d like to also thank the people of Port Adelaide for allowing us into their city to paint both small and (VERY) large murals, which will hopefully stay forever.
Wonderwalls Port Adelaide saw artists from all parts of the world, all over Australia and locally from around the Adelaide region, converge on the Port to decorate and reinvigorate it’s walls. It was an amazing week which hosted an exhibition, an artist panel discussion and of course a series of murals throughout Port Adelaide. Two of which are amongst the biggest murals in the whole country (painted by Etam Cru and Askew One/Elliot Francis Stewart).
Stay tuned for the video recap, however in the meantime click below for the full set of photos. You can also find a great photo recap by photographer Luke Shirlaw, here.
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.
Remio’s first exhibition in Australian kicked off this week at the RVCA Corner Gallery in Melbourne with a great crowd. The rare Colby prints sold out in a matter of minutes… Most of the other work following soon after. The exhibition, Subconscious Rumours remains open until November 9 .

Trent Whitehead’s first exhibition in over four years has just wrapped up at the new M.M.P.G. space in Sydney’s Surry Hills. The exhibition featured mind blowing painting and sculptural works, with a meticulous detail that he’s developed a reputation for. The exhibition heads south to Melbourne in a couple of months time but before then, you can view all of the remaining work HERE.
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.
