D.O.T.S by Søren Solkær Photography

World-renowned Danish photographer Søren Solkær visited Melbourne briefly this year to document street artists for his photography / book project D.O.T.S. I was lucky enough to be involved and below is the portrait of me he took at my & Steen Jones collaborative ‘Year of the Snake wall’, cant wait to see this collection/book in completion! – Meggs

From Søren’s new website:

“Søren is best known for his distinctive portraits of musicians. He is most recognised as the man responsible for various iconic images of Björk, The White Stripes, Franz Ferdinand, David Lynch, The Arctic Monkeys, R.E.M. and U2.

All the portraits in D.O.T.S. show artists who work in the public space.It is a book and exhibition project that was started in 2012.The aim is to portray the most significant figures in public and street art both on the contemporary scene as well as the pioneering figures.The project will take Søren to the Americas, across Europe and Australia.The book will be finished in 2014.”

VNA Issue 21 – Rone

I’m very happy to share that the New VNA mag is out and I have a feature.

All the info below:

vna_21_600px.jpeg

10-7.jpeg

Very Nearly Almost is proud to release its twenty-first issue. And it’s pretty special being the first to have a female as a cover artist; and who better to take this highly coveted position than the queen of street art herself Miss Van.

Her beautiful hand-painted “poupees” and vivid sexual creatures have been capturing the hearts of art lovers and for years and after a brief hiatus from working on the streets, she’s back in full force. We caught up with her to delve a little deeper into the mind of a lady who has blazed a trail through this macho graffiti world.

This issue is bursting with interviews – from the Ever-Fresh crew member Rone, monochromatic illustrative master Joe Fenton and street art new-comer NoseGo. We also have pearls of wisdom from those who have been on the scene since its inception, like Inkie, photographer Alex Fakso and Canadian artist Johnny Crap who also took the time to design our latest subscriber t-shirt . We caught up with a few other influential ladies including graffiti artist Mad-C and stencilist Amanda Marie, as well as illustrative duo Wurstbande from Berlin. There’s also something a bit different from another duo, husband and wife Dal & Faith47 who chose to interview each other. If this wasn’t enough you can also find interviews with queen of crochet, Olek, and the brilliant Nicolas le Borgne, a.k.a Odö – as well as a look at what’s been going on in the streets of London, Detroit and Japan.

Reka: OPEN STUDIO – Review

Last week hundreds of people came down to Backwoods Gallery to see off one of Melbourne’s most prolific street artists, buy cialis James Reka. Before moving to Europe next month, nurse he put on a pop up show that tied together all of the loose ends of his decade long career. Featuring a final fresh body of exhibited work alongside selected works from 2004 to 2006, fans came down in hordes to pay their final respects to one of Melbourne’s finest.

The new body of work was exclusively painted on rusted found objects such as spray cans, corrugated sheet metal and antique gold-mining pans that were found walking the train lines and salvaged from abandoned warehouses. Referencing his beginnings as a graffiti artist, the walls were strewn with scrunched butchers paper to create texture and act as an urban framework for the works. It was a process-driven concept, with Reka organically using every aspect of the spray cans to create artworks, from turning the paper labels into collages to painting the shell of the can itself.

In addition to this new body of work, Reka pulled a large collection of old works out of the vault from some of his original shows in the early to mid 2000s. Many of these canvases haven’t been seen for six or seven years and produced a huge, esteeming response from the crowd. Displaying works that have been painted over a decade apart, the audience could see Reka’s transformation from being known as having the strongest graffiti inspired line-work in Australia to his now renowned free-form canvases. Whether it is one of his iconic characters from the early 2000s or an incredibly intricate new work, Reka’s style is revered within the community and has continues to influence younger artists. There is no doubt it is commendable to already have such a strong retrospective of work and such a huge turn out of admirers in what is guaranteed to be a long and illustrious career.

Australia is losing one of their best to the bright lights and bigger walls of Europe, but there is no doubt that Reka’s legacy will continue both on the laneway and gallery walls for years to come. Gone, but not forgotten.

Everfresh NGV Studio- Closing Event

Thanks to all that made it to our closing event at the NGV Studio on friday night.
Sorry to all those who got stuck in cold outside, Fed Square red tape meant we had a seriously strict capacity limit. Turns out we can pull a bigger crowd then the upstairs masters exhibitions- ha.

Also a big thanks to the NGV staff, the caterers and Beer Deluxe.

I really didn’t think we could pull this off in the time frame we were given (3 weeks notice) but some how it all came together at the last moment. We were honoured to be given this opportunity and we really don’t know how we are going to top it, but who knows what’s next…
