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...

This is the same artist that painted the fantastic characters on the walls inside the Japanese Restaurant, Kuki Tanuki on Erskineville Road. For...

Other all time favourites of mine include a collaborative wall at the...

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,...
