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.

Mik Shida x Zheani Sparkes

This is the first collaboration between Mik Shida & Zheani Sparkes.
The magic properties in Z’s marks translated into wearable art by shida. Proceeds will go towards funding an independent Australian film production.

The film will be a contemporary tragedy situated within the frame of Australia’s traditional “Lad” sub culture. It addresses the power dynamics at play between homeless youth and seeks to shine a light on a social issue that is rarely addressed.
