The Newtown Hotel re-opens this Friday… here’s a sneak peek.

The Newtown Hotel re-opens this Friday... here's a sneak peek.
I was excited to be asked if I’d like to have a ‘sneak peek’ at the Newtown Hotel renovation before the official opening this Friday (19 October)! How could I refuse? The Newtown Hotel is 130 years old so this facelift is long overdue. A significant nip and tuck has done wonders for this iconic Newtown landmark. Some of the highlights of the renovated Newtown Hotel include the reconstruction... 

SMC3 at the Crumpler Store on King Street

SMC3 at the Crumpler Store on King Street
Every time I head to Newtown I love walking past the Crumpler store to see if there’s been a new street art creation on the wall outside the store. On the weekend I noticed the Skulk design had been replaced with a new artwork by street artist SMC3. This is the same artist that painted the fantastic characters on the walls inside the Japanese Restaurant, Kuki Tanuki on Erskineville Road. For... 

Interview with Street Artist: Skulk

Interview with Street Artist: Skulk
I have long been a fan of the work of street artist Skulk and it’s always a pleasure finding his charaters around the Inner West. Most will recognise his current work next to the Crumpler store (photo above – middle) which is part of a constantly changing street art exhibition for all the pedestrians on King Street. Other all time favourites of mine include a collaborative wall at the... 

Interview: Street Artist Liza

Interview: Street Artist Liza
I’ve been a fan of the work of street artist Liza for ages. The very first Liza design that caught my attention was the woman above with the scary crutch, and I have since delighted in finding his hand drawn faces and collage creations scattered throughout the Inner West. I regularly post photos of street art on the “I Love The Inner West” facebook page and it was through facebook... 

Street Art on King Street continues to impress!

Street Art on King Street continues to impress!
I’m impressed, yet again! Three amazing artworks have been created since my last update on the revolving street art exhibition on King Street. Ears and Birdhat both showcased their work outside the Crumpler Store throughout the early months of 2012 and in that last couple of days street artist Skulk has made his mark. This is the first time I have seen his work here and I hope he becomes a regular... 

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,...

Inner Westies at Outpost Project on Cockatoo Island

Inner Westies at Outpost Project on Cockatoo Island
  My head almost exploded with excitement last Sunday morning as I hopped on the ferry headed to the Outpost Project on Cockatoo Island. The ferry ticket sets you back about $15 but it is worth every penny! My husband had to tell me to calm down as soon as I set foot on the Island because I took off like a chook with its head cut off, running around in a crazy manner trying to see everything... 

Interview: Street Artist Birdhat

Interview: Street Artist Birdhat
Everyone knows by now that I am a huge fan of street art. I love walking through the streets of the Inner West and stumbling across a new piece of art on the walls. Nothing beats turning my head to check if there is a new splash of colour in a laneway and spotting a new work. One street artist whose work never fails to bring a smile to my face and brighten my day is Birdhat. I was excited that I got... 

Higher Ground Studio

Higher Ground Studio
Bet you didn’t have a better weekend than me! On Friday I managed to buy an original Beastman artwork at the grand opening of the new Colour By Numbers Gallery on Enmore Road. I was also lucky enough to meet Beastman on the night and to say that I was super excited by this would be a dramatic understatement. I tried my best to play it cool so that I didn’t scare him, but I’m not...
