Melbourne-based artist ‘Adnate’ floated high over Australia’s most iconic laneway to paint a significant wall that has never before been available to any artist. This is the first installment in a series titled ‘Paint Up!’ by Hosier Inc., a local community association. This series is a part of a program of activities designed to create a safe and engaging environment for all to work, live, visit and enjoy the area. Adnate’s artwork is a powerful representation of the beauty and strength of the Australian native culture, enhanced by evocative strokes of vibrant earthly colors. By choosing an aboriginal child as his subject, he hopes to embody the future – in his youth, the present – in his dramatic realistic presence and the past of the ancestors – in his eyes. The project is supported by a City of Melbourne Arts Grant.
Artist Guido van Helten found himself in a less then familiar place after taking up an artist residency in Reykjavik, Iceland. One thing led to another and before long the artist was working on a huge scale series of paintings inspired by images from the archive of the Reykjavik museum of photography. Upon stumbling on images from the screen play of Reykjavik 1961 theatre production, ‘no exit’ by Jean Paul Satre, van Helten set off creating 3 large murals on the Loftkastalinn’ building in the Old west side of Reykjavik, a former theatre and now creative building housing film and design production studios.
