It’s been a while, sorry about that! My last post was in 2011 when I decided to switch to Facebook and not to reactivate my domain. So I have never stopped posting, but only used Facebook. My intention is to go back to blogging in a traditional way and to post on Facebook aditionally.

So here we go, I walked in a little cafe this morning and as I will travel to NY soon I read first The International New York Times. And guess what? On one of the first pages I read an article by the Aussie journalist Julia Baird about female street artists invading the male dominated street art scene.

Vexta, The Rocks, Sydney

The list on what I would love to see is very long, but now there is one more spot I will head to, the corner of Bowery and Houston. Apparently Street Artist Vexta, also from Down Under, put on a piece recently. So looking forward to seeing it. Hope it will last for a little… In 2011 she and other artists took part in a live painting session at The Rocks in Sydney and also participated at the Outpost Festival on Cockatoo Island. You can see her to your right ->

Stay tuned for more pictures, travel reports and specials on street artists.

For now I leave you with a quote from Baird’s The Writing Is on the Wall:
‘How many things can we say exist just for joy?’

Sometimes it’s worth it to visit an exhebition another time and going to Cockatoo Island a second time was definitely the right decision. Over 50000 people already visited the place and everybody I talked to and saw on the island really enjoyed this happening. Coming week is the last chance to go, it finishes on the 11th of December.

ROA

ROA’s style is pretty outstanding and unique. His hugh murals mainly show animals painted in black and white. I first came across his work in Cologne, where I used to live and work for a couple of years. Later found out, that he is actually from Belgium, not far away from that city and is a world wide acting street artist. The video below shows him live painting at Cockatoo Island two weeks ago.

The Crème de la Crème of Street Artists put up pieces on an island just a couple of minutes by ferry away from Circular Quay (Sydney, AU).

Cockatoo Island’s vast abandoned factories and intriguing forgotten alleyways are the perfect backdrop for projects showcasing the energy and diversity of Street Art. With OUTPOST PROJECT, visitors are able to see a huge range of Street Art in one location. And because of its dynamic and live nature, the art will change and evolve, giving visitors something different to see throughout the course of the festival. An event of this scale is the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.

To see pictures of pieces from Anthony Lister, Kid Zoom, ROA, Bennet, Ears, Makatron, Stabs, Heesco, Junky Projects, Max Berry, Shannon Crees, Shida etc, please ckick below on one picture to start the gallery.

Facts: It’s for free via ferry ticket! Running until the 11th of November. More info on www.outpost.cockatooisland.gov.au.
