There are a lot of artist studios in Melbourne but Artshole is quickly cramming themselves full of ridiculous talent and what better way to show it off then to have an exhibition. Featuring a range of Just Another Favorites including Saul Attack, Ohnoes, Chehehe and the latest Just Another Artist Losop what isn't there to be excited about! Check out the flyer below for the details and head south side this Saturday night!
I'm thrilled to announce that we here at Just Another have a new family member and he goes by the name Losop. A talented stencil artist cutting his way through art school and has been hitting the streets and galleries since! Check out his profile and stay tuned for big things to come!
So many of you many have been wondering what Just Another has been up to over the last few weeks... Other than having Kaitlin Beckett's solo show Reanimation on at the Just Another Project Space I have been running around frantically for ALLYOURWALLS. Curated by Just Another, Land of Sunshine and Invurt, we are still in the process of transforming Hosier and Rutledge Lanes before it launches this coming Friday from 6-9pm.
Wondering what I'm talking about? Well, lucky for you the incredibly talented Ed In Focus has been following the progress and has put together this incredible preview video... Check it out below!

This week rather than doing an art crush on a particular artist I'm doing it on an institution, the National Gallery of Victoria. Last night was the launch of Melbourne NOW and "WOAH" to say the least! The entirety of the NGV including the NGVi was transformed into a gallery representing all aspects of Melbourne's creative community. An institution like NGV has over the years held incredible exhibitions for fine and contemporary artists, but this showcased so much more! Light Installation, Taxidermy, Icing Installation, Ceramic Sculptures, Print Design, Music etc everything was covered! It is so refreshing to see Melbourne's creative community get acknowledged by an institution of this caliber! Check out snippets from my poorly taken photos below and set a week aside and check out EVERYTHING! The exhibition runs till the 23rd March 2014.
Just Another Artist Kaitlin Beckett's work has a dark exterior until you look part the surface.. What may come across as dark, with guts and sewn skin her creatures are rather about rebirth. A new life in many different forms. Well I think it's captured perfectly in her opening night video by Carl Allison. Check it out for yourself below and head down to her show before it's too late!
