So, are you a fan of street art yet? What? No? Well, you’re missing the biggest art movement boat to hit Oz since someone decided to shorten “popular”, and you should start checking it out. Besides cool art, cool tunes cool ‘heads and a cool vibe, where better to do some budget pre-drinks and get sloshy than an exhibition opening? We know where the free booze is, cozÂ we know where the art is – this isn’t your chin scratching, wankerfest, two blobs of colour and call it next-revolutionary-shift-level shit – its edgey, creative, new and a real message of our times – this is art for you. Oh, and did I mention theres always lots of free booze?
So we’ll be dropping some info for you here every so often, recapping some of the shit our brethren over at Invurt talk about, what they see and hear, the awesome artists they talk to, and generally shooting the shit about this whole street art thing, so keep your eyes peeled.
The big one this week is the Fibre Femmes show in Melbourne – seven shit hot female street artists all under one roof, and they’re all been interviewed as well. It’s at a new gallery opening up in Prahran, Surface POP – Prahran is the New North, dontcha know? There also the Urban Art Throwup, 30 Oz street artists under one roof. Fkn mintox.
Oh, and if you’re in Perth? Get down to Double Lucky in Leederville and check out what they did down there last weekend .. and, and you might as well have a few shots or some shit while you’re there …
