Now that the dust (and sunburns) have settled from Wonderwalls, we can share some of the action from another amazing weekend. A huge thank you to our major sponsors for all the support and all the paint! Thank you to everyone that helped and also the artists for taking time out of the lives to add more beautiful murals to Wollongong City.

We will be bringing you more posts from the various parts of the weekend, but we thought we’d kick off with all of the finished murals painted for this year’s Wonderwalls in Wollongong, 2015!

Event: Wonderwalls Wollongong 2013 – A three day art festival

We are excited to finally announce the details for Wonderwalls Wollongong 2013. Our yearly mural arts festival in Wollongong, presented by The Hours, Verb Syndicate and Ironlak.

With huge thanks to our supporters we have managed to pull together some of the best street and graffiti artists from both Australia and overseas.

The festival will run from November 8 -10, including an art exhibition, artists talks and multiple large-scale murals being painted in the Wollongong CBD from featured artists SMUG (Glasgow), ASKEW (Auckland), ADNATE (Melbourne) WONDERLUST (Melbourne) VANS THE OMEGA (Adelaide), PHIBS (Sydney), SHIDA (Melbourne) FINTAN MAGEE (Brisbane), TWOONE (Melbourne), BEASTMAN (Sydney), NUMSKULL (Sydney), ROACH (Sydney), SCOTT MARSH (Sydney), THOMAS JACKSON (Sydney) PUDL (Sydney), BAFCAT (Wollongong), JAE COPP (Sunshine Coast), IDIOT (Wollongong), SYKE (Wollongong) and TRAIT (Wollongong).

Joining us this year will also be select members of the Ironlak Family, featuring LINZ (Sydney), SOFLES (Brisbane), REALS (Brisbane), SIRUM (Melbourne) and TREAS (Brisbane).

The artists on the Wonderwalls roster will converge on the city for this series of free public events. In Wonderwalls Wollongong’s second year they want to improve on gains made last year to present the city as a viable option for creative endeavours and projects, a place where artists can afford to live at lower cost without sacrificing culture. Increased cultural infrastructure will see the small city as an artistic tour de force in years to come.
Get down to The Gong for Wonderwalls, and the unveiling of their hidden artistic identity. What you see might surprise you.

Wonderwalls Wollongong recap – Pudl & Idiot

Last, but most definitely not least of the Wonderwalls recap, is none other than Pudl & Idiot (with guest appearance from Mons). These guys are the best at what they do, and are local Wollongong legends, so we were super excited to have them on board. Check out the photos below (borrowed from Pudl’s website here).

Wonderwalls Wollongong recap – Jumbo

Jumbo was one of the few semi-locals taking on a big solo wall down in Wollongong for Wonderwalls. Not having much time, he still managed to paint the majority of this wall with his trademark colourful pstterns and abstract characters. Big man, big wall. Thanks Jumbo! Thanks again to Ironlak for their support! Click below for full set of photos.

Wonderwalls Wollongong recap – Numskull

Our third artist in the Wonderwalls recap series is our very own Numskull. The wall he painted was directly behind the gallery which opened the festival, and quickly became a cluster of neons shapes, characters and gronks. Not only by himself… He also invited Roach and Yok to jump in randomly to add their bits and bobs to the stacks. Thanks again to Ironlak for their support! Click below for full set of photos.
