Two new artworks for my wall

Two new artworks for my wall
Woohoo! I have two new artworks to put on my already packed walls.  Each time I walk into the the house announcing I have bought a new artwork, I usually just get a shake of the head from my husband followed by “Where are you going to put that? We don’t have any walls left!” While I would love to have street artists paint an internal wall of my house that might have to wait until... 

Hardware Gallery on Enmore Road

Hardware Gallery on Enmore Road
Now I need to make something perfectly clear from the start – I am no art critic and I am not going to pretend to be one! My only qualification is I enjoy going to galleries and exhibitions to see the amazing work that so many creative people are producing. I just want to let you know a little bit about exhibitions and galleries in the Inner West and encourage you to get out there and have...

The Beautiful Skippy Girls

The Beautiful Skippy Girls
I had the pleasure of walking past the beautiful Skippy Girls this week. They brought a big smile to my face and I hope they bring one to yours. Originally painted in 1998 the Skippy Girls have been tagged and destroyed several times, but always lovingly restored by local residents. Next time you need a bit of cheering up, walk along Wilson Street and watch the girls skipping along the corrugated... 

Oh Really Gallery – Culture Jam

Oh Really Gallery - Culture Jam
I popped into the Oh Really Gallery last night for some live painting by Houl and live improvised hip hop by members of The Dyno Mics. The gallery was opened by street artists Max Berry, Daniel O’Toole (Ears) and Jamie Nimmo. Great art, great music, great beer. What more could you ask for on a Thursday night. To keep updated on all happenings and exhibitions at the gallery just check out their... 

Talented and creative! Artisans Arts & Craft Eveleigh Market

Talented and creative! Artisans Arts & Craft Eveleigh Market
How did I not know about this place? If you have never been to the Eveleigh Markets, it is worth a visit just to admire the space and the surrounding buildings – not to mention the great art, design, fashion and craft stalls. Despite my initial intention of going to the markets just to have a look (at least that’s what I told myself), I found myself continually pulling my wallet out the make... 

Secret Wars Australia – Houl vs Max Berry

Secret Wars Australia - Houl vs Max Berry
I spent yesterday walking around Newtown taking photos of some great street art and checking out some shops down the southern end of King Street that I hadn’t seen or been in before. I discovered 567 King, which is a store that combines the sale of street fashion, skateboards, art and Ironlak spray paint. I picked up a couple of brochures while I was in there, one advertising ‘Secret Wars Australia’.... 

Street Art – Love it or Hate it!

Street Art – Love it or Hate it!
Love it or hate it, the inner west wouldn’t be the same street art. Personally I love it. The creative ideas that flow from the minds of many and decorate the lane ways, houses, garage doors and street corners are a constant delight. A splash of colour on a dreary wall offers an insight into another world of fantasy which is painted for everyone to see, share and enjoy. The inner west has loads...
