Fluoro in the morning, Fluoro in the evening, Fluoro at supper time



Of late there has been a steady emergence of fluoro coloured bags, shoes, nail polish, sunglasses peppering the city streets.  I like it.

Home spun


Australian fabric designer, Bruce Slorach, has created an engaging range of printed canvas which embraces the Australian flora without being naff or cliche.
You can find this wonderful fabric at Chee Soon & Fitzgerald, 173 Regent Street, Redfern.
The people there are so helpful and will ensure you find just what you need. P: 02 8399 1305

ChalkTalk_Someone we know?



IF YOU HAVE A PIECE OF CHALK AND THERE IS A TARMACED FOOTPATH NEARBY...
THEN WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
CHALK DRAWINGS SHOULD NOT BE THE EXCLUSIVE DOMAIN OF THE NEIGHBOURHOOD KIDS.  
ENTERTAIN YOURSELF, LET THAT HIDDEN ARTIST OUT,   
AND DRAW SOMETHING!

Wallism_Dissect & Putting it together



A collage of information and imagery placed carefully on a wall in Gertrude Street Melbourne 
was a perfect vehicle to help launch the new art journal Dissect.  
How clever to engage the wall like a page from the journal. 
It immediately let the viewer know what type of style and content the journal was aiming to deliver.

The Colours of Melbourne: No.1 Away from the sun



The sun does not reach into every corner of this city.  
There is a rich life hidden from the blazing sun that is as vital and integral to the city as its love of sport and all things outdoor. 
The laneways and arcades are such a calm surprise.

A love story_February's Wallism



The care and love that went into creating this piece of Wallism is evident.  
The level of artistic endeavour that now graces the urban wall space of our cities is of a constant wonderment to shiftazine. 
Thank you.
