ALL FRESCO A Krd Street Art Festival.

Third year this event has been held here’s a video and bit of info check it out ….

All Fresco is both a response to the traditions of Krd, and to the

paucity of street art in the Krd district. The character of a community
is reflected in many things including the evidence of an engaged and
ongoing public dialogue. And in an area noted for it’s character,
a distinct lack of sites hosting relevant and revolving street art is
something to be addressed.

The value of this event isn’t just in the opportunity it provides to
artists, or even the spectacle and experience it offers spectators.
It’s in re-establishing and re-affirming the qualities of a part of our
city that makes it the most well know, most notorious and fabled
strip in the country.

Urban contemporary ….

jux_7

 

Post-Graffiti Pacific, which launches at aMBUSH Gallery, Central Park, Chippendale on Thursday 16 July from 6-9pm, seeks, in part, to organise the way we talk about urban contemporary art. As urban contemporary artists have evolved to straddle the divide between public and studio practice, terms like ‘graffiti’ and ‘street art’ have become insufficient to describe the activities and motivations of today’s urban artists. ‘Post-Graffiti’ is now a recognised term, used to describe the work of artists whose backgrounds in graffiti inform their professional artistic practice. Participating artists include Askew, Benjamin Work, Berst, Eliot Francis Sterwart, Gary Silipa, Misery and Route 52. MORE PICS HERE

Exhibition reception: Thurs 16 Jul, 6 – 9pm

Exhibition runs: Fri 17 Jul – Sun 23 Aug, 12 – 8pm

A film by Tom Gould – Skin

Martyka ‘Skin Dog’ Brandt – gang member, champion racecar driver and devoted solo father.
‘Skin’ documents the life of Martyka Brandt, a member of New Zealand’s largest and most notorious gang, the Mighty Mongrel Mob. In a gang comprised predominantly of Maori and Pacific Islanders, Martyka was one of the few Pakeha members who joined the gang in the early ’70s.
From being admitted to a mental institution at the age of 14, escaping and living a life of Mongrelism, Martyka’s life drastically changed as he began to raise his own family, later becoming a solo father raising 10 children through welfare and foster care.
Filmed in Napier, New Zealand
