Somehow we are already almost halfway through January of the new year. Next up : February. Which brings the joy of turning 28 along with it for me. This is something I feel so so about – I’m looking forward to being this age, I think its a nice number. But at the moment I’m still not sure if we will be back in Melbs, packing to shift apartments by end of Feb; or still in Nz with my lovely Wgtn friends, but probably missing the first term of aerial back at NICA – which I was hoping to pick back up after term 4 last year. Who knew : I absolutely love learning the trapeze, though I’m def. not so keen on tissu… which actually hurts like f@#k, especially when wrapped around your inner thigh to hang at a 90* angle!
Also, being after xmas there is not much more stuff that I really really want… especially with the blowout year we just had. However, there are still a couple of small things I’d kinda like: 1. New brushes (the green banded ones) from the French Art shop… I have slowly wrecked most of my current ones. 2. This book by Everfresh Studios in Melbourne :
Illustrated with striking, candid photography, EVERFRESH: BLACKBOOK provides a rare and exclusive insight into the life of the studio, the artists behind the work and the culture of the elusive underground art world – a world usually cloaked in anonymity.
Everfresh Studio is an explosive hub of creation and activity, inconspicuously located in Melbourne’s inner-city suburb of Collingwood. Behind an unmarked factory door, Everfresh artists conceive, develop and collaborate to produce their now internationally renowned work for the streets, as well as fine art for exhibition in galleries.
Rone, Makatron, Sync, Phibs, Meggs, Reka, Wonderlust, Prizm and The Tooth are the crew who make up Everfresh. They create works which fuse intense colour, intricate line work, iconic characters and visual narratives; using the most diverse street art and graffiti techniques. They play a significant part among the artists who continue to shape Melbourne’s dynamic and prolific street-art scene.
256 pages, 254 x 204 mm
The Everfresh: Blackbook is published through Miegunyah press and will be released as an open edition soft cover as well as a limited edition of 500 hardcovers.
