Reading: Shakewell Magazine Issue Two

After the successful release of Issue One earlier this year, the anonymous publishing team behind ‘Shakewell Magazine‘ officially launch Issue Two with subsequent parties in Brisbane and Sydney this week.

After gauging a mixed reaction from supporters, critics and police task forces alike, the production of Issue Two is interesting in itself.

There’s just something about illegal art that bestows bees in everyone’s bonnet!

The recent loss of one of Shakewell’s key founders, known graffiti king ‘Fawts’ to a tragic painting related accident has left devastating heart break on the magazine and its followers, but all appear adamant Shakewell will continue in hour of their Lost Soul.

Brisbane will host the first launch party this Friday night at Beach Burrito in Fortitude Valley and Sydney will see the second also at Beach Burrito in Coogee with the renown artist, Scottie Marsh painting live at the event.

Issue Two will be on sale at both launch parties and is also available online here.

Reading: No Cure Magazine – Issue Five

Coming along way since their Pozible ‘Printed Issue’ campaign in 2013, Australian independent art magazine, No Cure celebrates the release of their fifth issue, themed ‘Graffiti and Urban Exploration.’

Boasting Beastman’s colourful cover art and featuring the works of world renown artists including Indie 184, Simon Silaidis, A.CE, BR1, Don1, Martain Whatson and Bianca of Abandoned Brisbane, this issue follows No Cure’s traditional A class design style with added interviews, alluring imagery, argumentative opinions and interview features. As a stimulating summary of work surrounding the urban environment and the urban artists who’ve (literally) made their mark on it, we recommend giving it a gander.
