Stick Folk by Tom Civil. A modern contemplation of the Australian landscape, in aerosol. As either diminutive sprites in his paintings or as bold tags across walls, the Stick Folk are central to Tom Civil’s current work. They are an Aussie punk mashup of May Gibbs and Michael Leunig and they represent Tom’s personal connection to the bush and the city. Stick Folk is a collection of 25 paintings on found object material and canvas, 9 etchings, a sculpture and installations. Opening on Friday the 2nd of May and running until Sunday the 11th May at Backwoods Gallery.
With the Melbourne scene exploding like it is, there has never been so many artists painting so many walls. As fun as it is to shoot an artist's work in progress, with legal walls, sometimes it feels like there is something missing.
For us it is that feeling of excitment when you are discovering something new, or the little bit of anxiety you get when you are exploring somewhere your not really meant to.
This partucular yard is hidden in plain sight and has an almost locals only vibe. Climbing through this mess of rusty, heavily bombed carriages was just what we needed.
Folks this week's art crush goes to a deconstruction genius! Street art legend and one of my personal faves, "Nychos the Weird'! His ability to not only render and deconstruct blows my mind but also the scale of his work just takes my breath away! Transforming walls all across the globe with his animals and characters that become beautifully grotesque, yet still make you eager to see more! Check out a small selection of his work below!
I had the absolutely pleasure of having a chat with Saxon Templeton the other week when he approached me to ask some questions about the street art and graffiti scene and my opinions on it all. Wanna check it out? Well just click the link and head on over to his blog. You can also see an array of some of his favorite JA Artists and his pics of their work!

With Sydney artist Crisis in town, it was a pretty good reason to rally the troops for a bit of a paint up in the burbs. Crisis and Rsume joined Arts Hole Studio members Ohnoes, Amac and GlewTwo to session their local Crew wall.
Ohnoes and Rsume collaborated on a piece mixing traditional lettering styles with a photo realistic monochrome character depicting everyones favourite Boywolf personality, Saul Attack. GlewTwo and Amac used their unique styles to link into the Crisis peice who brought the gore with a fist full of dripping eyeballs. It was really great just chilling with our boys, sharing a beer and watching a fun wall unfold.
