Outside the Box – Creature Creature

Outside the Box continues in Melbourne, each day up to four artists have exactly 8 hours to create a piece within the confinements of the gallery, utilising only the materials provided to them.

We have spoken to a few of the artists to get an idea of who they are, what makes them tick and an insight into their OTB piece. First up, Creature Creature.

Who are you and what do you do? Why art?

Our names are Ambrose and Chanel but we go under the artist name Creature Creature. When we met we were pretty inseparable and both equally passionate about art since we could hold a pencil. We soon decided to take our collaboration seriously and do all our art work under the one name that represents both of us. It has really pushed us individually and as a partnership.

Ironlak Flagship Store – Sydney


Seminal Australian art supplies brand, Ironlak, has proudly launched a fresh new retail space in the heart of Sydney. Located on the ground floor of Central Park in Chippendale, the Ironlak Art & Design flagship store aims to create an innovative retail experience for artists and designers.


With the brand traditionally catering to graffiti writers with spray paint and markers, the Ironlak Art & Design store marks the launch of Ironlak’s vastly extended product range, providing a wider selection of art tools to allow all artists to express their creativity. New additions to the line include acrylic & oil paints, watercolour paint, colour pencils, technical drawing pens, gel pens, canvas, charcoal, pastels, sketchbooks, pads and easels. Apparel needs a mention too. 


The store was designed and built by Blake Ibbotson and the team at Fat Projects. 


To kick things off with a bang, Ironlak hosted a private launch party at the store on Thursday night, inviting a handful of Sydney creatives to enjoy a beer (thanks to Vale), wine, food and good times with the Ironlak team. Artist Mik Shida was in the building, blessing the feature wall with a fresh lick of paint, while DJ Harry Hunter filled the air with dope tunes.


The store is open 363 days a year, 10am–8pm. You can find it on the ground floor of Central Park – 28 Broadway, Chippendale, NSW, 2008, Australia. Get in today and check out the new digs and extended range of quality art supplies and apparel.

Whilst You’re Not Human are well known for their heavy and uncompromising contribution to the live music landscape of Bristol, it’s Rebecca’s photographic documentation of the events that has given a distinct sense of shape and presence to the scene outside the performances themselves.

Murals In The Market 2016


Last year we were lucky enough to be invited out to 1xRUN’s Murals in the Market in Detroit. The event was surprising in so many ways, from the time taken by the team to show us what the city was really about – the once-indomitable motoring capital of the USA, with a thriving industry that birthed a lot of modern Capitalist structure, that has since come back from being slammed into depression and decay – to the amount of heart and community that the organisers put into it. With barber-chair artist chats, a roster of local events and genuine support for the artists and workers involved in the festival and beyond, one message was clear, Detroit got soul.
