Great Garage Doors of the Inner West

Great Garage Doors of the Inner West
Nothing beats walking down the streets and through the lanes of the Inner West and finding great art on garage doors. There are some amazing designs out there. When I finally get around to fixing my dodgy back fence I need to find a street artist who can transform mine from a boring wooden paling fence into a work of art. Some of the street artists that have redesigned these garage doors throughout Newtown,...

Cornersmith in Marrickville

Cornersmith in Marrickville
Last weekend I finally made it to Conersmith in Marrickville for breakfast. I’ve had several takeaway coffees and an absolutely delicous muffin since it has opened, but having heard nothing but great reviews about their food I wanted to try it for myself. The lines of people queuing up to get in on a weekend is also a pretty good indication that this cafe is worth visting. So on Sunday I bit...

Rumour or Fact: Dunlop Slazenger Factory demolished?

Rumour or Fact: Dunlop Slazenger Factory demolished?
Last week a fellow street art enthustiast commented on an old post I wrote about the Dunlop Slazenger Factory which caused me to hit the panic button. They said they had heard the factory had been torn down!!! It is such an amazing space for street artists to experiment with and showcase their styles that I immediatley headed over to see if the rumour was true. I forget (intentionally avoided) telling...

May Lane Newbies + Old Favourites

May Lane Newbies + Old Favourites
The May Lane Art Project is an amazing outdoor gallery space located in St Peters and I am a frequent visitor because it’s constantly changing and it’s a free art gallery that’s avaliable to everyone. There are five main panels that are positioned along the side of a building in May Lane and artists are invited to use the entire building as their canvas, or they can focus on the... 

Rosa’s Kitchen in Sydenham

Rosa's Kitchen in Sydenham
  This blog is long overdue as I visited Rosa’s Kitchen way back at the end of last year. I remember braving torrential rain to get there, but the great food and coffee was worth the rain soaked shoes. I indulged in Rosa’s Tasting Plate, which was fig and walnut sourdough with fresh ricotta, chill jam, tomato, avocado and a hot mini chorizo muffin! Sounds delicious, and it was! My... 

The History of a Wall

The History of a Wall
I am completely addicted to taking photos of street art and one of the reasons is because it is such a temporary artform. One day I will be walking past a completely blank wall, the next it is covered by an amazing design, the following day another artist has added to it and its possible that next week it could be completely painted over and be a blank canvas again. I have several locations and streets...
