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.

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.

TUES – Interview Graffiti World Record in Dubai

What happens when you bring over 100 graffiti artists together to paint one wall in one city? No, it’s not what you’re thinking. Dubai saw no punch ons or turf wars last November for the city’s ambitious attempt to break the record of the World’s Longest Graffiti Scroll.

Alongside over 100 different artists from 26 countries, the Ironlak Family made international art history by trekking their team to Dubai to take part in the painting of the record breaking scroll, measuring over 2.2km long. Created in celebration of the United Arab Emirates’ 43rd year as a country, the canvas scroll stretched across Jumeriah Beach to mark the shape of the country. The team’s efforts became a globally recognized street art and graffiti event titled ‘Rehlhatna’.

VNA catches up with Ironlak’s own TUES to chat about the crossing of graffiti artists from around the globe for a collective project.
