Shepard Fairey Sound & Vision show

Shepard Fairey’s Sound and Vision show has been the hot topic in town for the last few weeks. The artist and his crew has hit hard for this show since not only the Stolen Space gallery is hosting the show but another much bigger one a few yards away has also been necessary to give a roof to the impressive amount of pieces the artist has produced.

Since the Hope portrait of Obama back in 2008, Shepard Fairey and his brand OBEY has become something people recognize and like. You see a Shepard Fairey and you know it is one – the typography, colors and subject will give it away. OBEY is a brand here to stay.

Chris Brown and his monsters

Yep, as loads of people these days, Chris Brown seemed to have also embraced street art and decided to paint what looks like monsters on his very expensive Beverly Hills mansion walls.

No exception here though, Chris Brown or not, multimillionaire singer or not, street art isn’t welcome. It scares the children, it would appear. The singer has been ordered to repaint the walls otherwise it will have to pay a fine, a £250 fine. This is probably what he earns per minute.

Scares the children? Really? Have you looked at them, they are adorable. Yes, I must admit, I kind of like them. I never thought I would ever approve anything Chris Brown did.

Let’s move on.

Ears at No Vacancy Gallery

We visited this show just after a quick walk through the famous Hosier Lane in Melbourne CBD. The walls of the Lane sport some of Ears original stylings and give you a great point of comparison between Ears older work and his new body presented in this series.

Ears, artist name of Daniel O’Toole, has used a pallet of pastels and more expressive lines to create variations on the characters that have become synonymous with his style over the years.

Allot of people aired concern that a move by Ears towards a fine art aspect may deter allot of his fans, yet when you see the show in person the concepts have translated onto canvas extremely well.

The show is now over
