I love creating, that’s pretty much it. Painting, photography, type, design and architecture all float my boat so this blog will be filled with images that reflect the things I like. Hope you enjoy my time here.

Ian Strange AKA Kid Zoom SUBURBAN exhibition at NGV Friday 26th July

BLOG POSTED BY JONAS ON 19 JUL 2013 @ 06:21 PM


It looks like we're in for a treat next week, homie Ian Strange (AKA Kid Zoom for those of you who look at graffiti) has brought his epic Suburban project to Melbourne. I recommend checking this one out if you're in town, I've attached the preview video below so you can see the scale of the project. It is by no understatement a huge effort and worth braving the winter weather to lay your eyes on. More details below the video.



"Ian Strange: Suburban is a multifaceted photography, film, installation exhibition and film project created by New York-based Australian artist Ian Strange. Since 2011 Strange worked with a film crew and volunteers in Ohio, Detroit, Alabama, New Jersey, New York and New Hampshire to create, photograph and film seven site specific interventions incorporating suburban homes. The recording of these interventions through film and photographic documentation forms the basis of this new body of work."

Friday 26th July (opening 6:30pm) – Sunday 15th September 2013

Ink Dots Black Spots exhibition

BLOG POSTED BY JONAS ON 16 AUG 2012 @ 02:45 PM
Tonight sees the first Ink Dots Black Spots exhibition at the Vic Bar (281 Victoria St, Abbotsford), there will be a stack of top shelf artwork for sale at very reasonable prices with the guys all pitching in to raise some funds for Cancer Council Victoria. Definitely a chance to grab some amazing art (they have 50 artists from 15 tattoo studios!) while helping the fight against cancer.

OZ Comic Con 2012

BLOG POSTED BY JONAS ON 02 JUL 2012 @ 06:19 PM
This weekend saw Melbourne swamped with Stormtroopers, Sailor Moons, The cast of the Avengers and pretty much any other comic superhero you can think of, plus a hefty bunch of ones you never knew existed. The main draw cards were Stan Lee (Marvel) and Patrick Stewart (Star Trek). Anyone who knows comics has heard of Stan Lee, he created or was part of the creation of most of the superheroes & villains that exist as movie characters today. At 89 years old he was full of life and spent an hour conversing with fans that were understandably super nervous about speaking with their life-long hero.

Walking around the packed event was tricky, but the costumes were crazy, the collectables were tempting and it definitely hit the kid strings. If they plan it a little better next year and deal with the teething problems of a first year event I'll go again for sure.




These guys were everywhere.




The toy range was insane, this classic Jaba being strangled by Leia was a standout.




This was a dude... I hope they aren't his kids or they will be talking about this excursion to a therapist someday.




The robot from Transformers has only got one arm.




Stan Lee, we're so lucky he had a translator on stage to convert Aussie to American, no joke.

Da Mental Vaporz Crew show at Rtist Gallery tonight

BLOG POSTED BY JONAS ON 16 FEB 2012 @ 12:17 PM
So the DMV Crew (Bom-K, Blo, Brusk, Dran, Gris1, ISO, Jaw, Kan, and Sowat) from France have flown in to have a show at Rtist Gallery this evening and I kid you not when I say it will be nothing less than amazing. These guys have been killing it for a while now and I am actually honored that they have come to Melbourne to show some new unseen work (when they could show it in London or Paris, sell it all and not have to spend 20hrs on a flight over here). Here's a few teaser pictures (courtesy of Butterfly) of the work and a video that they made for the show – do yourself a favor, if you only go to one art show this year, make it this one.

Swoop and Melodie by Taj Alexander AKA Deams

BLOG POSTED BY JONAS ON 11 OCT 2011 @ 01:36 PM
Friday night saw the opening night of Taj Alexander's solo exhibition at Rtist gallery in Prahran. Taj (AKA Deams in the graffiti world) has always had a graffiti style which contains many aspects of graphic design and the work at this show was a superb showcase of his current style in its prime. The show is open Tuesday – Sunday (9am – 6pm) and runs until Sunday 23rd October at 29 St Edmonds Rd, Prahran.

Seasons of Change RDC recap

BLOG POSTED BY JONAS ON 23 SEP 2011 @ 02:06 PM
A few weeks back saw the first instalment of Revolver's Seasons of Change one night graffiti events. First up were the legendary Jors & Shem of RDC (Royal deviates Crew), which once announced caused a flurry of excitement. These guys created an impressive body of work, including painting the outside wall to look like an old Hitachi train complete with classic B-Bpy characters and wildstyle pieces that could rival even the greatest work to come out of New York since the golden era.

To those who were lucky enough to buy work on the night, treasure those pieces, they were selling for well below their worth and big things will be happening with these guys in the near future.

Here is a little teaser clip I made for the guys in the lead up to the show and a few pics from the night.




Shem vs Bodé




The train


Amazing marker skills




The detail on this is ridiculous, check the wood grain behind his head
