Photos: No Vacancy 5 year anniversary

In the low brow art world, some galleries stay, some go, some linger and grow old, but there’s one gallery in Melbourne that has stayed true and has always been at the forefront of the Melbourne gallery circuit. That’s No Vacancy.

The gallery, who’s main space is in the heart of the city, and also has two satellite spaces, has recently just celebrated their 5th birthday!

Featuring a stellar line up that was Meggs, Ghostpatrol, Ben Frost, Miso, Two One, Nior, Beastman, Makatron, Tom Vincent, Jasper Wong, Max Berry, Numskull, Adnate, Sheryo, Nails, Stephen Ives, Luke Lucas, and many many more (too many for me to re-type)… the show was packed full of both recent work and un seen old work that the artists contributed to a killer show. For us, we think there needs to be more of these group shows. Big celebrations of what’s happening right now in the young art world.

Thanks to the NV team for sending over the great photos (taken by Caitlin Muscat). Click below for the full set (there are ALOT of photos)…

Outside: Catching up with Ben Frost in Canada

We caught up (digitally) with our old buddy Ben Frost recently to see what he’s been up to on his recent travels in Canada. Looks like he’s been busy getting outside of the studio lately, with these posters on abandoned stores in Windsor. More on Ben here.

“These are 5 street pieces I did in Windsor, Canada this month. I went down to work with my buddy DENIAL who has a nice big studio and using some cool techniques. Windsor is across the river from Detroit, and suffered a similar social and economic demise when the Ford factories closed during the GFC – so there’s loads of abandoned stores like the KFC, Home Depot and 7-11 that I found to hit on this trip.”
