Felipe Pantone – Video portrait by Selina Miles

Portrait of an Artist | Felipe Pantone from Selina Miles on Vimeo.

A series of facts of varying importance on the topic of Felipe Pantone.

Felipe Pantone is a contemporary slash kinetic slash graffiti artist living in Valencia, Spain. Selina Miles is a video director from Brisbane, Australia. Together, they celebrate their love of the internet and facts in this short film, directed and edited by Selina Miles.

Felipe Pantone’s body of work spans from graffiti to kinetic art. Strong contrasts, vivid colors, effects, and the use of mixed medium and varied technique combine to impact strongly on the viewer. What really intrigues is not the striking nature of his work, but the artist’s journey to discover this aesthetic. We live in a time where more images are produced than can possibly be seen, and the impetus for an artist to stand out from the others is stronger than ever. Information flows at an exponentially increasing rate, a leitmotif recurrent in Felipe Pantone’s compositions, his hyperactivity, working methods and his constant traveling around the world.

It was during this travel he met Selina Miles, an Australian filmmaker who specializes in documenting graffiti and street art. With a deep love for new techniques, camera tricks and fast-paced, energetic short films, Selina accepted Felipe’s challenge of cramming as much information as possible into a 5 minute film.

‘Stereodynamica’ by Felipe Pantone opens at Backwoods Gallery Friday October 16th from 6pm.



Finok Is Showing “Sorrir e Chorar” @ Galleria Patricia Armocida in Milan


Brazilian artist Finok, member of the infamous VLOK crew, is currently having a solo show with Galleria Patricia Armocida in Milan. Titled “Sorrir e Chorar” (Smile and Cry) the show is based around the idea of duality, or two sides of the same coin, and is created using elements from Brazilian culture and tradition.

By incorporating modified graffiti characters into these traditional objects and concepts, the prolific artist creates unique mix of styles which resembles the colorful and vibrant culture of his homeland. Though playful at first, reuse of familiar children toys such as kites (pipas) and hot air balloons (baloes), represents the rough life and unforgiving environment in which kids are growing up in Brazil. These games include cutting down opponents’ kites or blazing gigantic balloons that take months to build, and for the artist they symbolize a way of preparing for the perils that come with adult life. The show includes six medium-scale works on canvas and wood, fifteen drawings, five sculptures, and three site-specific installations and feels like his most comprehensive show to date.

This is the inaugural event for the Stencil Art Forum in Australia and we are excited to be hosted by our friends at the Stencil Art Prize. Key topics for discussion include; defining ‘stencil art’; is technology an integral aspect of stencil art; why stencil art here and now; and what the future holds for the discipline?

The forum aims to encourage artists, collectors, professionals, enthusiast and the general public to take part in the discussion for what will surely be an insightful and interesting afternoon of artistic discourse.

URBAN NATION One Wall: Onur & Wes21

URBAN NATION One Wall: Onur & Wes21 evoke the destruction of the world with a massive mural in Kreuzberg, Berlin.


The object of art is to depict an unfiltered vision of contemporary life, to give a face to our desires, to draw attention to misunderstandings. Street artists Onur & Wes21 pursue just this goal. In their work, the two Swiss artists explore the idea of the ecosystem of the planet Earth as infested by human parasites. Their public art aims to grab peoples’ attention and encourage them to think.

Makatron in Singapore

To celebrate Singapore’s 50th Anniversary, and under the ’50 Bridges’ programme, the Australian High Commission arranged for Australian street artists to paint murals on walls in 50 heartland locations across Singapore.


One of these artists was Melbourne based Mike Maka aka Makatron. Makatron has traveled and created work around the world, painting the Berlin Wall to the River Ganges. Makatron’s work is preoccupied with the interface between man, beast and machine. Presenting a visual riot that stimulates the mind, his art conveys an imperative message to those confined in the concrete jungle to stay connected to the natural world.

Damo: How did you get involved with the 50 Bridges programme? Who else was involved?

Mike: I was actually a late invite to the event, the idea came from an old friend, Regan Ha-Ha, on a visit to Singapore some years earlier. The other artists involved were Adnate, Yok + Sheryo, Vexta, Tom Civil and locals artists Trase and Zero.


Damo: What was it like painting in Singapore? It is a country known for its strict rules – did this affect what you were able to paint in anyway?
