Phibs @ Vivid Sydney

Join the cream of the young Australian graffiti, illustration and graphic arts scene for an evening of conversation and collaboration. Knock Knock magazine’s panel of emerging artists, Eleven, Soft Science and Dave Cragg, share their work, processes and talent alongside the wisdom of established graffiti icon Phibs. This survey of fresh talent will share their creative practice and discuss the issues and opportunities for young graphic artists in 2013.

Melbourne artists Eleven (illustrator and graffiti artist) and Soft Science (animator and illustrator) demonstrate the new style of interdisciplinary craftsmanship, honesty and humour. With his raw Australiana, Sydney artist Dave Cragg pushes painting in new directions; and from the streets to the National Gallery of Australia’s permanent collection Phibs encompasses these aspects combined.

Produced by Sydney siblings Tom and Alison Groves, Knock Knock is a free online magazine profiling emerging and established street artists, illustrators and visual innovators found in alleyways and far reaches of the net.

Meggs x Birdman photos – Desert Mission Preview

Over the last 3 months my LA homie and art photographer Birdman has been taking a select group of artists out to abandoned desert location. Below is a preview of my part in the project, which Birdman is soon to release as a series of photos & videos from each artist involved.

This was my first trip into California desert territory and its an environment I was stoked to experience and definately to explore more in future. As much for the beautiful barren landscape as for the crazy roadside diners/buildings/shacks that you pass along the way! Stay tuned for full doco etc coming soon…

Meggs – Lion of Venice – LA

During April/May time in LA, I stayed in Venice Beach, an area with a traditionally diverse artistic community and history surf/skate culture. Thanks to Brandedarts I had the opportunity to paint a wall at the ‘Love Shack’, a well-recognised Venice Beach local-institution located on Lincoln Boulevard. We decided to paint one of my recent ‘Lion’ pieces as a tribute to the culture of the area and I place I consider my homebase in LA.

Special mention to my homies in the Rose Street house where I stayed, known as the ‘Rosebuds’, the inclusion of the rose on this wall is for you guys! Photography by @birdmanphotos.

Meggs – ‘Lone Roses’ Mural – Culver City, LA (USA)

A rose is often referred to as a symbol of hope, love & beauty; and the thorns that surround it as hardship.
I painted this rose around the back alley of the brandedarts complex as a reference to this. A homeless man lives in this alley, we left him a care package of foods etc. as payment for being in his space.

He said the rose looked ‘cool’. I hope it helped to brighten his day…

Blondes have more fun

In Denmark it’s pretty accurate. It took me far too long to paint this wall. Not because of the size or the challenging dimensions of the building, but the typical Aalborg weather. A lot like Melbourne actually- 4 seasons in 1 day. To put it short it was raining every day.
This mural was part of my exhibition at Galerie Wolfsen which was a big success. I will be doing a recap of the exhibition shortly… when i have time. (which seems never at the moment)
Thanks to all the crazy Danes I met…and I thought us Aussies can drink. wow.

Meggs X TheHundreds – Downtown LA

First mural post, albeit a little late, was for TheHundreds new warehouse HQ in Downtown LA (April 2013).

Bobby Hundreds & co came by to film a preview of my ‘Heavenly Creatures’ solo show at Thinkspace, which you can view here, and gave me the opportunity to come see thier new huge warehouse compound and pick a wall to hit-up alongside other talented artists such as our Everfresh bro Madsteez. After Bobby and I were talking about our love/obsession with skulls I decided to do a piece which reflected the phantom comic book pieces from the exhibition and coincidentally tied into the Hundreds new ‘Grateful Dead’ range. Thanks again Bobby & Crew. – Meggs.

Original post on TheHundreds website found here.

Meggs USA Recap April/May 2013

I’ve never been one for journal writing and to be honest am a fairly lazy ‘tourism’ photographer. Most of my ‘personal life’ experiences go undocumented and exist purely in the memories and stories I can tell on a face to face basis. Even with the expansion of social media I like to keep personal life (ie. party shenanigans) off of twitter and instagram and instead be a lot more consistent about documenting my artistic milestones and achievements. And this is the way I prefer it. If you were there then you were there, if not, prob no need to see what it was I was eating, drinking, buying, breaking or falling over.

With that in mind the following is a short and sweet photo recap on the last 2 months spent in LA, DC and SF (mostly LA), where I focused for the most part on painting, partying and hanging in Venice (your imagination can fill in the blanks.)

Following this post will be individual posts specifically documenting the murals I painted in Downtown LA (Hundreds HQ), Culver City, Washington DC (Abandoned Church) & Venice Beach as well a secret California desert location, soon to be revealed…

Thanks again to all my good friends, without whose generosity and hospitatlity, this kind of constant travel adventure would not be possible. Heres to the road more or less travelled! Cheers – Meggs.

Aalborg, Denmark

First day I managed to paint a quick wall at one of the hall of fame spots next to about 8 Swet pieces in a row.
Aalborg doesn’t have much murals so the locals were very curious of what was happening to their city.

    As part of our new studio we set up a separate hot desk area for creatives to work from. We have a hot desk space available for short or long term lease. It's a 'clean' area so would suit someone working from laptop etc. The space is not in the studio itself. Contact our studio manager @kifka if interested. [email protected]
