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.

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.

As always, all the artists stepped up, with Sprinkles going in on the canvas like a man possessed. His sick mix of Chinese and Maori influences came good with a sterling effort on the wall.

Skel – Can you kick it?

Melissa ‘Skel’ Jaksic is a legend. She recently painted Oxford Art Factory alongside Shannon Crees, Alex Lehours, Anthony Lister and Sprinkles for the VNA launch in Sydney. Her creative projects include work for Absolut, Outpost, Paste Modernism and Secret Wars (now Secret Walls). She also helps run Ben Frost’s online print store, Stupid Krap, in her spare time. We caught her in between beers for a look at how she gets her kicks…

‘Skel’ means, basically, a bit of a lowlife, is that your persona as an artist, or your representation of what artists can be?

I got the nickname Skel from one of my crackhead friends back in my hometown. Because, at the time, I was a bit skinny and I guess they thought they were being crafty, seeing as I was Skeleton-like and it rhymed with Mel. It wasn’t until one of my friends linked me to the definition of Skel on Urban Dictionary that I saw it had all these alternate worldly meanings that, funnily enough, still applied to me as a person. I think everyone has the capacity to be a bit of a lowlife, and my work generally focuses on the darker side of people’s psyches, so I guess Skel is more a representation of what people can and sometimes want to be, but can’t because of societal pressures. The Dr. Jekyll to my Mr. Hyde I guess…
