Being in Brissie and Being on a work mission will not deter me from the blog. And since I have found a decent coffee my optimism has picked up (despite a tagger I hope was being funny by spelling Rabbit wrong). Anyway I will post now, flash later and hopefully come up with some good stuff soon!

You Snooze You Lose

I don't know if it was the glass cut on my foot distracting me last time (I really do suffer for your art!) or if they are brand new but a bit of activity lately in one of my fav little corners - a new Flake, plus an art critic has aptly deduced the art previously pasted as being the work of "rad cunts". I decided to revisit the broader area and I am glad I did as Shida and Capush had been around some time and a neat little paint job by an unknown artist with a fondness for ties made me smile! Further afield some fresh pieces on a blank canvas lane I have had my eye on. Btw Nufevah has been sticking a sold sticker here and there - cute. All up a good catch today.

Meandering

Okay I have been Out and About searching for art in obscure places - found some awesome kaff-eine up dead end laneways seems to be beginning to be a trademark of theirs. Some gorgeous Sim2 Mishap - reliably amazing, and predictably some Tres following behind like a younger brother who has been told to keep his distance. Most excellent art on my mind this week though is by Sparcs. Watch this space cos I am on the hunt ! And when I get to the computer will get the link to the Shadow Project exhibition happening soon Feb 4 Walls ... Check out Sparcs on flickr. Sparcs if that link doesn't work I will fix it very soon.

In the meantime, art in obscure places

Something Old Something New Something Vexta Something Blue

Okay truth be known I drank too much and didn't jump out of bed an hit the streets with vigor and enthusiasm. I did stumble down the road coffee in hand and purvey the immediate and obvious in my micro local surrounds, however. Some really cute pastings, doilies, cats ... And a huge Euphoriacs fan, quite prolific! Anyway starting to get interested in Lush so hunted a few down - I don't 'get' lush yet but I wanna ...

Fly From Nearby

Still so far away from the lane-ways I love to frequent, and not strictly remaining on topic, but someone invited me to this THREE SIXTY FIVE DAYS launch and some investigation compels me to pass it on - this kid Oliver Forbes is amazing and inspiring and without fully revealing my age - he is only 22!!!!.  I had been lulled into a false sense of security in the liberal streets of Fitzroy, but homophobia is as real today as ever.

Thank You Vetti


Vetti Live in Northcotte is the sort of blog that would tamper the dose to perfection and as they casually handed you the golden brew, that you probably traveled half an hour out of your way for its that good, would then tell you where the beans were from, name the roasters pet cat and describe their childhood aspirations (the roasters, not the cat)!  I don't know how she does it but I am sure there isn't an artist or art project in Melbourne she is not familiar with.  So yet again, Vetti has named some work I have been hunting down for a while....Junky Projects.  Thank you thank you thank you!
