Cross Words

Steve Cross is a multi-talented artist, working across many mediums, including spraypaint, pencil and tattoos. Originally from Perth, Wild Western Australia, he now resides in Melbourne, where he co-runs Korpus Tattoo Studio. We caught up with the all-round b-boy for a chat about his murky past and inky fingers.

Tell us about your studio, Korpus…

Korpus was founded in 2007, in Brunswick, Melbourne. My good friend, Brian Graydon, and I came up with the concept of an art studio that would also run as a tattoo studio. We figured that if we exposed new images, ideas and concepts to people, we’d break away from that clichéd idea of what a tattoo and a tattoo studio should be. We hoped customers would respond with more of an open mind, which, in turn, would expand the possibilities of what they would want, and what we could illustrate on them. To start with, it was tough, as, initially, we learnt how to tattoo for 12 years, but now we were thrown into the business side of things. Five years on, we have great artists working with us, and we’ve had some amazing people come through. All the people who work, or have worked, at Korpus have been artists that Brian and I have looked up to and wanted to either nurture or learn from.

VNA Artist Sticker Packs

It’s Friday and we have a super special announcement.

To celebrate reaching our twentieth issue last month and doing so as an independent publication, we decided to pay homage to some of the amazing artists we’ve been lucky enough to work with over the years, by gathering together twenty friends of VNA to create the ultimate sticker pack. With original, one-off artwork from each artist these are stickers you won’t get anywhere else and if we do say so ourselves we’ve got quite the lineup; 45RPM, A.CE, Buff Monster, D*Face, Dabs & Myla, Dscreet, Eine, Invader, Kid Zoom, LUDO, Mr Penfold, Mysterious Al, Numskull, Nychos, Richt, Ronzo, The London Police, The Toasters, The Yok & Vinnie Nylon.

The sticker packs are limited to an edition of 500, hand numbered and available to buy exclusively from our website while stocks last. A great stocking filler which we hope you’ll be as crazy about as we are. Grab them here!

 

VNA x itdrewitself Presents: Meggs, Lister & Kid Zoom

VNA are proud to present another beautiful video by our friends at itdrewitself. In a coincidence so good we couldn’t have planned it, three of Australia’s finest; Meggs, Anthony Lister and Kid Zoom were all in town during the same week. So we got them together to paint in a derelict warehouse and chat about their work. Click the image to watch how it went down.

THE STREET ART SHOW – OPERA GALLERY LDN.

Have known about this one for a little while but only just had the confirmed details sent through.

Having supported street artists and graffiti artists in NYC, Paris and other major cities around the world, Opera gallery’s London crew has pieced together some big names from the urban art world, both past and present to produce ‘The Street Art Show’

I have to say, its a mighty impressive line-up, but after being big fans for a while I think I am most excited about seeing Kid-zoom, How & Nosm and Sabers work in the flesh.

The show runs from the 17th – 30th of June.
