Christmas approaches: Street Advent!

"What!?" I hear you say "An Advent Calendar on the streets? Crazy!"

Yes, a little crazy, but what a fun way to play with the city in the lead up to Christmas! My good mate Matt and I are rounding up 25 artists to partake in this calendar project. Each day in December, until the 25th we will be revealing a fresh new piece of street art to the world, just as those little perforated doors revealed Rudolph, candy canes or maybe it was just Santa's shiny red face. No red faces here though, just talented artists!

Head to our website for the full brief and to register interest in getting involved. Of course we are on Facebook too. Spread the word!

Outpost & Paste Modernism 3

Tonight is the opening night of Outpost on Cockatoo Island in Sydney. This festival is set to be the biggest celebration of street art Australia has seen. Running for 5 weeks and involving over 100 artists, both Aussie and international it's going to be an event not to be missed.

As part of Outpost, Paste Modernism 3 celebrates the humble paste up. Running for it's third year and curated by Ben Frost, Paste Modernism 3 involves over 250 artists and countless paste up art.

I sent my package of paste ups north to Sydney a couple of weeks back and am hoping to make it up there between now and the 11th of December to check out the amazing display of work.
