Mr. Penfold hits Australia…

We caught up with Cambridge boy, Mr. Penfold on his recent visit to Australia for a few quick questions about indigenous art, travel and those funny sausage noses…

What’s up with the weird noses?

Haha I get this question every time. The nose has changed a lot over the years, The original started off as a sausage stuck to the face, but the shape has been simplified down over the years. I like the challenge of getting the line done in one go, getting it perfect can be tricky, so its more about the pleasure of getting it right first time.

Red Bull Canvas Cooler Project

Londoners will be familiar with the Red Bull Cooler Canvas Project already, but Sydney-siders better recognise this is actually pretty legit.

Over the next month, big dog Marty Routledge has programmed a line up including artists Beastman, Numskull, Phibs, Roachy, Thomas Jackson, Will Lynes, Esjay, Brent Smith, Well Dressed Vandals, Kerupt and Peque, who will be turning mini Red Bull fridges into works of art, inspired by the look and feel of the bar.

Venues include Oxford Art Factory, Upstairs Beresford, Hunky Dory Social Club (license pending…), Bucket List, Lo Fi, El Loco, The Standard, The Flinders Hotel, The Norfolk Hotel, Cargo Lounge and Sugarmill.

It all kicks off tonight at Lofi – get down early to slurp some Red Bull, apparently it’ll give us wings, so afterwards we can fly to Ching-a-lings…
