For those on instagram you’ve probably seen the tag #phibsneedsinstagram.
For a couple of years we have been tagging photos of Phibs to make up for the fact he wasn’t on instagram yet.
But now there is no need, believe it or not, @phibs_has_instagram

Wonderwalls went down again this year and l was lucky enough to make the trip up to paint.
Was great to catch up with a whole bunch of good people and paint a wall with Roach & Numskull. We had sunshine, rain, terrible karaoke, rain, beers and a bit more rain. Good times all round!
Finished photo’s by occasionallygood. Some great photos on occasionally good of other walls as well, if you haven’t seen Askew’s wall then check it out.
Few of my random photos from the weekend as well, thanks all!
NOTHING LASTS FOREVER – BY NUMBSKULL ROACH & WONDERLUST. 2013, WOLLONGONG.

Good to see Aeon hasn’t changed one bit since his move to Europe…
Finally managed to get car free photo’s of the new Unstoppable wall Rone, The Tooth and I painted in Collingwood for Independence Australia.
Independence Australia is a local community organisation that helps people with disabilities or physical needs with a variety of services. Also a big thanks to Masters for donating the paint and supplies for the project.
The wall was marked up on a grid and painted over 2 days with only one lift, something l don’t think we’ll be attempting again!
Big thanks to Thomas and Emily for help on filling all the letters. Progress shots below are also by Emily.
Thanks to all the people who helped on this one, was a fun project to donate our time towards.
The good folks at Pow Wow have updated their website with a bunch a great photo’s by BRANDON SHIGETA

This shot of MADSTEEZ pretty much summed up the Pow Wow experiance…
Your favourite writers favourite writer – SAUCE.
Looks like the curtain is about to fall on the Yorkshire Brewery site in Collingwood, or the Silo’s as it’s known. Appears as though the developers are starting to move their equipment in and set up site offices in the yards. Apparently the development for the sites now been approved and it will soon be home to apartments.
The silo’s has been a big part of the studio for 10 years now, with many memorable missions down there, including the first time l met and painted with Rone and Prism. The site had become a bit of a hub for painting for all the boys living in the area, if you needed somewhere for a quick piece and a beer it was always a great option, l think Aeon might of had a few hundred pieces down there over the years! All the FLY guys killed it down there for years with a huge amount of pieces. There’s even a DUEL piece from 2012 there, they should put the silo’s on the heritiage list based on that alone.
Rone and l stopped by the other day for a look around and get some flicks before the fences go up.
On to the next chapter…
The Studio now has it’s own IG feed,follow it here.
A lot going on with the studio over the last couple of weeks, lots of crew in town for Carbon including some of the Pow Wow team, Victoria Secret girls and Rone pieces in Miami, Maka getting ready for his show in Sydney, Meggs in LA having his show at Thinkspace and Phibs painting up a storm (as usual) in Melbourne and Sydney.
A few random photo’s pinched from the internets of what’s been happening.
Does had his show in the new End 2 End building in Collingwood this past weekend. If you managed to get along (and get in) it was an amazing show to see.
Here’s a couple of flicks, Does doing the hard work while the Buff Man looks on.
The day has finally come where the old Graff Mobile has passed.
Farewell to the old girl, look may she rest in piece in the big scrapyard in sky.
Lister sent through a bunch of photo’s of his new studio in Sydney l thought l’d share, nothing like a bit of good old studio porn. The works will be for his upcoming show at Olsen Irwin Gallery.
Always good to see the transition of the works from the chaos of the studio to the gallery.
