Beastman & Phibs are both artists that are synonymous with each other. Both share the same birthday, both have lived together, both have a similar approach and style to their work, both have exhibited together and both have painted numerous walls together over the years.
Recently the duo teamed up again for an exhibition titled “In our nature” at Ambush Gallery in Sydney. The show was comprised of a series of the same size paintings, a large scale mural installation (coupled with sound designed by Daniel O’Toole aka Ears) and a spontaneous live painting of two cars outside the gallery during the weekend. The artwork on show was a typical glimpse into their overall bodies of work, however this time instead of completely filling the spacious gallery, only small 7 paintings were displayed by each artist.
If you missed out, you might be lucky to see the mural at the next Ambush Gallery show, which has become a permanent fixture. Click below for a full set of photos. More on Beastman here. More on Phibs here.
From our friends at Ironlak;
“DOES traveled to several cities to paint canvasses incorporated into murals. His journeys were documented by cameraman Stephan Polman who accompanied DOES during his travels to each of these cities. After returning from their travels Rube Parthoens jumped in to edit the footage and Blankeroy started cooking up a tune to match the respective city. The results of the project will be shown during an exhibition on April 5, 6 and 7, at a construction site in the centre of Melbourne.
His journey started in Amsterdam (as seen in the video below). The next city will be launched next week. So stay tuned for more!”
Another event to kick off the new year, happening in Melbourne, is the 3rd annual Ill Logic street party.
This year’s ILL-Logic welcomes acclaimed street artist Does, the return of DMV crew’s BLO & JAW, large-scale sculpture/installation by Alastair Mooney, and new works by E.L.K., Lucy Lucy, Choq, Adnate, Kaffiene and more.

We’ve been noticing bits and bobs on VTO’s Instagram account lately so we’re excited to get the full run down on Vans’ solo exhibition in his home town of Adelaide. This will be a show not to miss…More info below.
Joel Van Moore has been long-consumed by the bountiful allures of wanderlust. Gracing surfaces across the planet with vibrancy and colour, the artist also known as VANS the OMEGA has received warm acclaim on the global stage of Graffiti Art.
A milestone event in this artist’s career; PLUTONIC RELATIONSHIPS will be the first solo show in his hometown of Adelaide, South Australia. This exhibition is devised to expose the underlying nuances of soul and contemplation that are fused within VANS the OMEGA’s mindscape, manifested through an array of expressions and forms.
In his own words, PLUTONIC RELATIONSHIPS “is a visual footprint of the myriad of human emotions and conditioning we face within every moment, reverse engineered through sacred geometric visions, textures and soundscapes.”
Hosted on the walls of ABEO’s studio space on Unley Road, PLUTONIC RELATIONSHIPS is a must-see event during 2012?s SALA Festival.
