Inner West favourites participating in the Outpost Project on Cockatoo Island

I have put together some photos of my favourite street art from around the Inner West. The usual suspects of Beastman, Ears, Phibs, Slug, Animal Farm, MOX, Birdhat and Hazzy Bee have featured + many more. But the really exciting news is that some of our favourite Inner West street artists will be taking part in the Outpost Project on Cockatoo Island from (4 Nov – 11 Dec). To say that I am excited about this would be an understatment of the most massive proportion!!!

Honestly, this is going to be the coolest event to go to! The line up of artists that are involved in the Outpost Project is enormous and impressive! Cockatoo Island is going to be the perfect location to show off the different styles of each artist. I went to Cockatoo Island for the first time, last year, to check out the 17th Biennale and the harbour and the old abandoned warehouses were a stunning backdrop to the artworks and installations. I can’t wait to hop on the ferry and explore the Outpost Project.

There are loads of events happening on Cockatoo Island throughout the month. There will be an exhibition showcasing artworks created at May Lane between 2005 and 2010 by Australian and international street artists (MAY’S: The May Lane Street Art Project). Last year the Australian Stencil Art Prize was held at the Oh Really Gallery in Newtown but this year it is part of the Outpost Project. Skateboarding Australia will stage the 2011 Pro/Am Series Grand Final on Cockatoo Island and Secret Wars will be hosting live battles on the weekends. To top it all off  you can check out the Oi You! Collection owned by George Shaw and his wife Shannon Webster which features 22 works by Banksy, along with other leading names in street art including Faile, Antony Micallef, Swoon and David Choe + more.

For anyone even remotely interested in street art or graffiti this event is a MUST SEE! There is sure to be something for everyone and have I mentioned it is FREE entry – it doesn’t get any better than that! What a way to spend your day, enjoying beautiful Sydney Harbour while checking out some amazing work by talented street artists from around the world and from our very own inner west backyard.

See you there!
