Hang Outs... Victoria, Australia

Bambi This Weekend

31st August 2012

 Like Banksy, a number of Bambi fakes have begun to appear on the market. Metro is proud to be listed as a registered Bambi exhibitor. While Bambi's identity is unknown, the artist did tell a local newspaper, "I like to entertain and amuse people with my art. I know what I do is illegal. It's criminal damage, I can get very nervous when I'm out working, often in the early hours. The trouble is I have never been able to resist a blank wall." One of Bambi's more recent stencils featured a young Queen Elizabeth II on the throne, with the tagline 'Diamonds are a girls best friend'.

Bambi's works will be on display at Metro Gallery this weekend, we look forward to seeing you!

Flesh Cut Fridays with Luci Westphal

Such a fun way to see Berlin: being driven around in an APE Calessino with two beautiful expats. A wonderful flashback to riding in a tuk tuk through Bangkok.

Last week expat travel blogger Cheryl Howard (@cherrysberries) invited me and expat twitter queen and Berlin blogger Sandy Hathaway (@SandyInBerlin) to go on a tour with Lino City Tours through Berlin.

We went through Mitte, Kreuzberg and Neukoelln. Seeing all kinds of traditional sights: e.g., Reichstag, Brandenburg Gate, TV Tower, Potsdamer Platz, Oranienstrasse, etc.) - and witness lots of Berlin characters: boom box music video shoot chick, window washer, juggler... and our expat friend and 6Wunderkinder wizard Mark Bate (@markbate).

Don't Forget...

Sunday 2-4th of September 2012

With the industry firmly behind it, The Ledge just continues to grow & develop. It offers an essential London platform for complimentary brands from both the actions sports & street wear sectors to come together in single, convenient venue.
At it's launch in  September 2011 the show was all about action sports - September 2012 sees a pivotal introduction of the new & anticipated Streetwear area. This has been created to enable street wear brands to thrive within their own unique environment, whilst still benefiting from a retail crossover with the more action sports brands.

As well as an exiting array of brands exhibiting, September 2012 also welcomes an expansion of the Osiris mini ramp competition with riders fighting for the winners purse of £5,000

Hang Outs... Mermaid Beach, Australia

Four Solo Shows    

Abigael Whittaker is a young and emerging Brisbane based artists whose works are rich in colour, decadence and heart. Hilton Owen’s unique and individual style sets him apart from any of his peers and into a class of his own. With his first successful solo show under his belt at age 17, Hilton has come a long way and is ready to show another round of his punchy abstract works. Cristina Troufa is a Portugal based artist whose work pushes the boundaries of perception and perspective and aims to challenge viewer’s interpretation. Masha Vereshchenko’s art is deep, emotional and reflective of what is going on in her life at the moment. The Russian born-Pittsburgh based artist is heavily inspired by Russian iconography and fairytales told by her father. Be sure not to miss this incredibly diverse and exciting display of contemporary art at its best!

Urbexing with Fiona Milne

Spent a pleasant evening watching CoLor Art create this piece. If we'd got in the place we were supposed to be going, we'd have been stuck there overnight, because apparently that place gets locked up!

Spiderman piece by Trik9

Cracking Boms piece for a new Urban Art Space at the Nichols Building. (Link at bottom of post)

Mila K, producer of mental but beautiful works, makes my brain ache again. Devnonshire Green Skate Park.

This is what happens when you have a bet with your mate and your mate is a graffiti artist.

This would have been one of my favourite pieces of the year,but sadly was gone over within 24 hours of it being completed and I never got a shot of it.

Knuckles by Trik9, super talented artist and really good guy, heavily involved in bringing urban arts and culture to young people. (Link at bottom of post, for more)

Collaboration between Mis Red Art and RiseOne

Toupe, more usually seen in the northeast, recently paid a visit to Sheffield.

Work in progress, with Jaya and Kory

Hang Outs... New York

 Bold Hype Gallery

The opening reception is Thursday September 13th, 6pm - 9pm.

Greetings Art Lovers!

 With September almost upon us, we are getting back in the swing of things and gearing up for our next show, "Bless Your Heart" - new works by Bethany Marchman.


Using traditional oils to create parallels between innocence and influence/ history and popular culture,
Bethany Marchman's paintings are sometimes funny and sometimes sad. They are reflections of the awkward changes we experience as individuals and as a society, while questioning whether or not growth is synonymous with improvement.

Studio Visits

Nick Hersey
Part 1

As you know RDC love to explore artist's studios. It gives us more of an insight into the artist's use of media, work inspirations and in some cases (the studio) can limit the size of their work. 

This time we hook up with Nick to check out his space and admire his illustrations and sculptures.

See Part 2... HERE
