craffiti : sayraphim lothian @ no vacancy fed square

Craffiti is where Melbourne’s street art scene meets soft sculpture. Sayraphim Lothian has been inspired by a very diverse group of artists, and has reinterpreted their stickers, stencils, aerosol and pasteups. There are 30+ works in the show, artists include Astrotwitch, Barek, Braddock, Dean Sunshine (Land of Sunshine), Diabolical Robot, Erin Greer, General Artist Philb, Junky Projects, Legojacker, Lifetime Sticky Fingers, Malarkey Art, Putos, Psalm, Steen Jones, Suki, and Trollz B Trollin. This thought provoking exhibition is on at the No Vacancy Project Space Federation Square until April 19. My favourite (although so hard to choose) was the Troll, after Trollz B Trollin.

never ending : creature creature @ no vacancy gallery

Never Ending is a beautiful mix of ancient Japan, contemporary style, hip hop and skate culture. Creature Creature’s work flows gently through the space and appears on prints, decks, ply and vinyl toys. Sadly I missed the opening, but enjoyed having the gallery all to myself today. On at No Vacancy (QV) until Sunday, Feb 14 – and yes, the quarter pipe is for sale…

living the dream

A sunny Saturday with one of my favorite people, both of us in tiki-fabulous attire. Buying Richie Fahey’s Waikiki Wahine at The Outre Gallery sale (in black faux bamboo frame, obviously), a new panama at Smart Alec, a wander through the Victorian Hot Rod Show, and gelato at Il Melograno. So happy…
