I love Yok & Sheryo's black, white and red murals but there is always something about their colour pieces that make me smile! Having recently been in Miami for Art Basel, below is one of the walls they painted while in town, 'Everglade Crocogater'. Check it out below and stalk them online here and here.
Witness Australia’s first ever Street Store, a pop up initiative that provides the community with a chance to help out and hang up clothes for the under privileged. This global campaign was conceptualised in South Africa in January 2014 and has since popped up all around the world. Appearing in cities such as London and New York, this event will now be held in Melbourne on Saturday 20th December.
This is a young community driven event open to everyone between 12 – 4pm at St Paul’s Court, Federation Square. An enriching experience for Melbournian’s and it’s influencers to learn about the homeless community and to engage with those who they are donating to.
In the spirit of giving GiDi CREATIVE, Homeless Of Melbourne and Free Is Better have teamed up to share this event with Melbourne just in time for Christmas. This experience is different from others as it is the first dignified shopping experience for those in need. For the homeless begging can be degrading, but at this pop up store they are able to choose what clothes they like or need from the donated items and collect them off the hangers.
The event will feature the pop up store, food voucher handouts, and barber grooming services. There will be guest D’J’s and the chance for attendees to purchase $5 food vouchers from Mr. Burger that they can donate directly to a person in need at the event.
If the idea of giving back to the community sounds like you but you don’t know how to help, we encourage you to bring down some of your beloved clothes on the day of the event. Alternatively you can contribute by dropping off your clothes at the Free Is Better office, 221 Kerr Street, Fitzroy, Monday to Friday between 10am and 6pm, or GiDi CREATIVE, 10a Lincoln Street, Brunswick East, Monday to Friday between 9:30am - 5pm. Donations can also be made on the day.
We hope to raise awareness and help break down the stigma towards people that are homeless. This is an interactive community initiative that creates a sharing opportunity and an accepting environment for those in need.

Berlin based Just Another Artist Jak Rapmund is in Melbourne and what better way then celebrating and saying hello then heading down to check out his solo show 'Not Dead Yet' opening on the 5th December at the Just Another Project Space.
All life comes to an end, but we're not dead yet.The knowledge of the ever-looming, ever-blooming death, is the greatest motivation for Skallywag Jak. It is his main inspiration, to refuse a regular job, to produce art and to travel the world enjoying the brevity of life. To try and experience as much of this world as it has to offer. Jak continues on the adventure, to keep painting and tattooing and learning, in the city that began his life as an artist, Melbourne.
Jak hand carves woodblock printing plates, to produce highly limited prints that are individually unique. He tattoos skin, primarily with flora and fauna, references to life and death, and elements of geometry and he paints murals, playing with similar themes, but bringing an explosion of colour to the walls, expending some of the energy pent up by studio time.
