Lister – Live and Unplugged in Melbourne

As you all know, Anthony Lister held his very first Melbourne ‘Lister Live’ last Friday at Juddy Roller Studios. Backing this up, he held an all day show and painted a live wall on Saturday in Fitzroy.

‘It was a pleasure to give the new gallery space over to an artist such as Anthony Lister. His energy and his approach to his work is something that I’ve always found quite fascinating so it was an honour to finally get the chance to work with him. The atmosphere was quite a bit different to one of our regular exhibitions. It was a lot more intimate and a chance to get really up close and personal with the artist, his style and his creations, a rare opportunity for an audience that will usually only encounter an experience like that in the artists coveted studio’
Shaun Hossack, Creative Director, Juddy Roller

Hopefully this wont be the last time we see Anthony in Melbourne with a live class, but for now, here’s a few flicks from p1xels to keep you interested. Be warned, some of these are probably NSFW. Keep checking back too, cause Juddy Roller have some dope shows coming up for the latter half of 2016!

‘The Couple’ – Shawn Lu

The Couple by Shawn Lu from Round 3 Creative on Vimeo.

Melbourne based contemporary artist and illustrator Shawn Lu has painted his latest mural, The Couple, at one of Melbourne’s most beloved watering holes, Dr. Morse.

Located in Collingwood, Melbourne, The Couple was completed over 7 days, in February this year. Using outdoor acrylic house paint, his trusty brush and steady hand, this piece features an unprecedented level of detail for a wall mural of this size.

The video, created by Round 3 Creative captures Shawn’s process through a time-lapse, allowing you to follow the process from initial outlines right through to the rendering and completion of the mural, all in the space of a tidy few minutes.

Meeting of Styles – Melbourne

Melbourne has been updated with a new coat of paint! Over the first few days of April, nearly 300 artists from all over Australia took over the iconic laneways of Melbourne CBD and surrounds, painting up a storm for the inaugural Australian Meeting of Styles.

Whilst street art was incorporated into the event, the focus of the event was, as with all Meeting of Styles’, graffiti. As such, Melbourne was blessed by visits and work by some of Australia’s biggest crews.

Hailed by all involved as a huge success, there are already talks in place for a bigger and better event in 2017.

For all of you suffering from massive FOMO, check out the pics below, or head over to social media and check out @mosmelbourne and #mosmelbourne to see hundred of photos of all the works from conception to completion.

Damo: What’s your first memory of the Screaming Hand? Where does it take you back to?

Ken Taylor: My first memory of the screaming hand was probably when i was 12/13 and sated to get into skating which eventually lead me towards graff. It takes me back to drawing that hand over and over again on school folders, my old yellow canvas school bag, files, pencil cases – pretty much any item I owned that was meant to stay neat and tidy was covered in the hand an a bunch of other 80’s skate graphics.
