Creative folk around the globe... you have only days left to apply for the Redbubble Artist Residency Program, with applications closing 31 October 2015, 11.59pm PST.
The Redbubble Residency is aimed at supporting Melbourne’s creative community, helping foster a body of work and encouraging artists to collaborate by working in the open plan Redbubble head office. The six month paid residency allows artists to work on a collection of their creations to exhibit at Redbubble’s biannual Made in House show.
“Each artist brings a unique style and experience to the office, and having these artists work within our space gives everyone at the company a chance to connect tangibly with our ethos, that is celebrating all that is truly unique and creative," explains Redbubble Marketing & Programming Manager, Ana Kresina.
Having nearly completed their second round of residencies, artists couldn't rave about the project more and neither can we at Just Another. With Just Another Artist Marian Machismo having completed the first residency along with Just Another Artist George Rose, having nearly completed the second round (the final pop up shop exhibition celebrating this residency, opens on the 26th November at No Vacancy Federation Square)

'Kunst' is the first solo exhibition in Melbourne from Just Another stencil artist Kirpy since he has spent the past 12 months living and painting in Berlin, drawing inspiration from a city rich in both character and history. Whilst Kirpy has been abroad he has worked tirelessly plying his craft and experimenting with new techniques to further evolve his skills, continuing to impress with his unique blend of mediums culminating into an honest and detailed portrait of urban life. Whether it be images of streetscapes and architecture or of strangers walking by, Kirpy manages to perfectly capture the very essence of his subject through intricate detail on a wide array of canvases. Kirpy is pushing the boundaries of what we know and expect from stencil art by producing photorealistic pieces that challenge the audience into understanding the methods behind its production.
An all new body of work, 'Kunst' is an authentic and truthful depiction of the city of Berlin and the impression it has left on the artist. The exhibition captures the unique aesthetics of a city so rich in history, with a strong reference to the massive cultural revolution that occurred in Berlin in the early 1990's after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
Running 4th - 22nd November at Port Jackson Press Print Gallery - 84 Smith St. Collingwood.
