Metro Luminescence

Witness art from open spaces brought inside as 13 diverse artists swap the streets for a gallery.

On Saturday 11 June, aMBUSH gallery is bringing art from the outside in. Thirteen artists with a connection to the streets unveil their work in a gallery setting, challenging themselves in a new environment and giving viewers an insight into the process of work that’s normally created in changing conditions and extremes. Whether in the shadows of midnight or in broad daylight, in the driving rain or scorching sun, these graffiti writers, muralists, fine artists, photographers, and sculptors demonstrate it’s about more than just the practice and the place; it’s about the outcome.

Curated by Australian multi-disciplinary and previously featured artist Phibs this group show features work from Andrew Jumbo, Chris McGeown, George Rose, GT Sewell, Lucy Lucy, Nico, Nicole Reed, p1xels, Peque, Phibs, Pudl, Snarl and Stabs.

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.

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…
