Back in 2007, a charity art exhibition called Sidewayz was put together. It was a massive success, with the 2008 exhibition opening to a huge audience at MTV Galleries. Brad Eastman (Beastman) originally curated the show, with around 65 artists from across Australia, along with a handful of international submissions.

5 years later, this year’s show will run in a similar fashion; all artwork will be on skateboard & snowboard decks. There will be a silent auction on the night and people will be able to make bids throughout the following week online. Proceeds from the sales of the boards will be donated to charity.
Recycled boards will be provided for artwork. There will also be a limited selection of snowboards provided to the most killer artists to paint.
There will be around 70 hand-picked established artists, as well as a further 30 unknown artists – on the Facebook ‘Get Hung’ competition – to keep things fresh and progressive. Get in touch with the Sidewayz team asap if you’d like to get involved.
