In between a couple of outdoor projects and my Melbourne show, I've also been working on some stripped back experimental pieces for a project with @carolineberesforddesign at the Hyde Park Palms pop up for @goodfoodmonth in Sydney. It's been really fun painting these pieces. They will be available as of next week. 😊
This is me, standing in front of an awesome wall painting by Helen Eager at @mca_australia Sydney. My take on the famous acronym is Movements Creating Actions. @mca_australia want to know what the MCA means to you. Head to mca.com.au to let them know.
In light of what @apparitionmedia did to the iconic 'Its like a Jungle Sometimes' mural in Newtown this week, I thought I'd share my experience. Begin rant... Between myself @roachi and @joeldtd amongst many others, we have been painting free public artworks on this wall in Surry Hills, Sydney for many years.
I was told by the owner of @apparitionmedia they had gained permission to paint an ad over this wall, as a one time only thing. Needless to say that was not the case and they created an agreement with the owner to turn this public mural wall into a rotating billboard. This seems to be happening more and more these days, and companies like this need to be called out by councils. Or at least these companies need to find their own blank walls... I would also urge any home owners to steer clear of these dodgy dealings and think about the bigger picture. Do we really want our neighbourhoods plastered with more ads, or free public art? I know where I stand.

Just got back from a fun week in Melbourne painting a collaborative piece with big daddy @bradeastman !!! It's been a while since we've painted together so it was really fun to get weird and jam on this space at the entrance of Preston Markets. Thanks to @backwoods.gallery and @raftstudio for having us be a part of this project. Full photos soon.
My good friend @paultooth made this great sign... In Australia we are having a vote on marriage equality. It's absolutely ridiculous were having to do such a thing, but it's happening so EVERYONE needs to make sure they're registered to vote. It's a small action that could make a huge difference. No government should have a say who we choose to marry!! Hit www.aec.gov.au/ to enrol.
