Choose Your Own Adventure

I am outta time (you're outta touch, but I'm outta my head when you're not around - 80s flashback Yay, Bulk Ace!) ... Ummm yeah so 5 drafts, no time, many photos and every intention. But i do offer you this sweet collection - there are several threads weaving through them worthy of a blog and i invite you to see what speaks to you. Is it Miso against busy backgrounds ? Be Free so grandly poised? The intangible name of the stencil artist you read about ages ago and you cant quite track the name down in your mind? Hmmmm

Qi

Street Art - a gifted street artist got me thinking about what defines Street Art and why I appreciate it. I see Street Art as an intangible action, a means, the doing - as well as the Done. I dont pretend to know anything about Eastern Philosophy however i believe Street Art is an energy that flows. It heats up, cools down, the viscosity changes, and both those that Do and those that Document add something to the fluid dialogue. Anyway I just like it - what Street Artists do and what that leaves us to see. And i hope the multiple openings/closings and celebrations last night were as amazing as those who shaped them!

Unrequited

Time is running out for me to catch this wave, and its momentum dissipates with each moment lost .   I am desperately grasping for my previously freakishly good intuition, to find myself empty handed at every turn.   The challenge, you see, was raised for me to find certain intriguing additions to our streets, coinciding with Phoenix the Street Artists Fab exhibition, and I have failed!  So Phoenix, with your sneaky new pieces, you are my unrequited conquest...for now.  Here's the current state of my collection...(apologies I didn't shoot the first image before the obligatory dick joke, and yes I cheated one was outside the parameters of Fitzroy)...

Kaffeine is Back

A tiny sticker was the only clue that I may have been on the trail.  In my haste to uncover more I lost the scent, but in hindsight I can pinpoint the wrong turn and will rectify!  Nonetheless losing the scent proved fruitful in so many other ways.  Here's today.

Birdhat's in town

And worth 2 in the bush... There has been a bit of skulking and bird-hattery in our streets, I can't wait for more, although they seem to have a bit going on in Newtown too so it may have been a flying visit.

Flake & Durban Poison

I'm letting the images do the talking here, the good Durban Poison has me mellow in a soft lounge chair, dry mouth, big smile ...this shit is good! Flake is doing everything I love in street art too. Keep it comin' guys.
