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... 

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... 

Street Art @ Crumpler on King Street

Street Art @ Crumpler on King Street
A few more months have passed and the rotating art exhibition next to the Crumpler store has had two new additions. The last two works have been done by Ears and SMC3. Who doesn’t love a free art exhibition? For anyone interested in dropping by to check out the artwork – 305 King Street, Newtown is the place to go. I’m looking forward to seeing who the December artist is going to... 

Newtown Festival 2011

Newtown Festival 2011
The Newtown Festival is a fantastic commmunity event organized by the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre and all money raised is used to provide support services to the local community. The festival has come and gone and as the saying goes… a picture is worth a thousand words! So I thought instead of just writing about the day I’d share some of the photos I took. The good news for everyone who... 

Movie Review: Bill Cunningham New York, now showing at Dendy Newtown

Movie Review: Bill Cunningham New York, now showing at Dendy Newtown
Bill Cunningham New York, directed by Richard Press, is a thoroughly entertaining documentary about an eccentric obsessive, a passionate and dedicated professional, and a happy, kind-hearted, down-to-earth and extremely likeable individual. Bill Cunningham is not just a New York Times photographer; he is a cultural anthropologist who has been chronicling for decades the most peculiar of New York City’s... 

The Pie Tin… The Art of Pie

The Pie Tin... The Art of Pie
So who’s been to The Pie Tin in Newtown? Combine one of my favourite foods, potato, with a choice of about a zillion different delicious pies and you have the keys to my heart. The Pie Tin has a huge range of handmade sweet and savoury pies which are baked daily on the premises. It opened in about March of this year (I think) and if you haven’t been yet, add it to the list of great places... 

Interview: Street Artist Ears

Interview: Street Artist Ears
We are lucky to be surrounded by so many talented street artists in the Inner West and it was Ears that originally got me completely hooked on street art. So imagine my excitement when he agreed to an interview! I remember being blown away when I drove by a collaborative piece Ears did on Addison Road in Marrickville a couple of years ago. I almost gave myself whiplash as I drove by, I quickly parked...

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...
