This video captures what excites me about street art and Taylor White’s style in particular. There is so much joy surrounding people who do what they love, rain, hail or shine. Watching someone create is a truly special and beautiful thing. Check out this wall at Revolver Upstairs, and do more of something you love in 2014…

alterations, disturbances and rips : phoenix @ rtist gallery

This kickass collage show opened last night at RTIST. Featuring Kareem Rizk, Mauro Palmieri, Phoenix the Street Artist and Danilo Brandao, make sure you saunter thru and check it out. I’m not exactly flush with cash these days, but I walked in and wanted to buy almost everything. Especially the 3D letters. Immediately. Alterations, Disturbances & Rips is on at RTIST until December 16, 2012. Hopefully you’ll dig it (and be inspired to go home and get back into the studio) as much as I do…

Find Phoenix on facebook and flickr. He also appears in Dean Sunshine's new book, Land Of Sunshine.

boneyard : kaff-eine solo show @ signed and numbered

Most excited to check out Kaff-eine’s first solo show last night. Boneyard is, quite simply, amazing. Familiar characters from street art feature, as does some stunning watercolour work. Poignant, strong, fragile, and so damn beautiful all at once. I’ve no idea how Kaff has made time to prepare all this while illustrating two books, doing private commissions, live painting gigs and a thousand other things…Anyhow, if you weren’t at Signed and Numbered last nite, go check it out!

Find Boneyard at 153 Greville St Prahran until November 30.

fintan magee : paper plains

Fintan Magee’s solo show is amazing. Here’s some pics I took yesterday…

Expect to see still life, superheroes, and canvases you’ll want to stare at for hours. Images of cardboard boxes and black garbage bags are social commentary, but still awesome enough to lust after.

Make plans to see Paper Plains if you haven’t already – and check out his interview with Grace Brosnan over at T-Squat.

Find Paper Plains at Rtist Gallery, Prahran.
