The Eat Art Truck & Ears in the Inner West

The Eat Art Truck & Ears in the Inner West
Last night The Eat Art  Truck got a facelift right here in the Inner West. Talented local artist Ears, put his unmistakeable characters and style on the side of the truck for all of Sydney to see. The truck was parked opposite the Seymour Centre where a crowd of people watched Ears at work while they got to feast on the Eat Art Truck delights created by former Tetsuyas sous chef Stuart McGill and... 

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... 

Inner West Instagram Addict

Inner West Instagram Addict
It’s official, I’m addicted to Instagram. I don’t know how to stop! For those who haven’t heard of Instagram it’s a free photo sharing program which was launched in October 2010. It allows users to take a photo on their phone, apply a digital filter to it, and then share it on a variety of social networking services, including Instagram and Facebook. I love the square... 

King Street Report, May 2012

King Street Report, May 2012
Sadly evidence of the retail downturn continues to hit King Street with more shop closures recently of long standing stores including Books on King and Seduce which coincidentally are next door neighbours and now sit empty. Continuing down this side of King Street, Monster Thread’s previous location has been finally occupied with new tenant Telstra moving in a few months ago. Further south,... 

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,... 

Sustainability & Eco-friendly but does it taste good?

Sustainability & Eco-friendly but does it taste good?
Discovered this restaurant a month ago and then couldn’t get a booking till Saturday night. Practically drooling with suspense we took extra care at the bottleshop to pick the perfect red as we had an idea we were in for a special treat. Spencer Guthrie’s is not a large venue so perfect for smaller gatherings. Located at 399 King St, Newtown, it’s Newtown’s latest restaurant...

Perfect weather for a movie! Movie Review: ‘A Separation’, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Perfect weather for a movie! Movie Review: 'A Separation', now showing at Dendy Newtown
A Separation, written and directed by Asghar Farhadi, early in 2011 became the first Iranian film to win the Golden Bear at the Berlin Film Festival. It also picked up Silver Bears for its wonderful ensemble cast. Just this week, it won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. This compelling masterpiece (and there is no other way to describe it), though relatively subtle and simple in its plot...
