EAST EDITIONS/ROACH

East Editions have launched their 4th collaborative project with Sydney based graffiti artist Roach and Melbourne furniture maker Thomo & Coach. They have worked together to create a series of 5 multifunctional hand crafted timber boxes. Each box is painted and signed by Roach and the timber has been thoughtfully sourced from the mountain regions of Eastern Victoria. We love that small businesses like East Editions are shifting our consumer culture back to a culture where products are locally sourced and  hand made with lots of love.

CAMILLE WALALA

Our good friends over at Third Drawer Down have recently opened up at new southside store in Melbourne’s Prahran. Mirroring the goodness of their first store (in Fitzroy), the doors have opened onto another curated space full of  perfectly artistic/witty/amazing products.

Their new store has been unmistakably decorated by French artist Camille Walala with bold geometric patterns dominating the exterior (and parts of the interior) of the new store. Its bright, poppy and delicious (did someone say licorice allsort?)

Check out more of Camille’s work below….

The Birth of Rockin Jelly Bean

Rockin Jelly Bean, thank you for your book you sent us!
One of our oldest’s friends Rockin Jelly Bean, has finally released a book about his art work and life. This book is no ordinary art book with pretentious writing about how cool the artist is and all his accomplishments. Rockin Jelly Bean describes the book in very simple words.

 

“Nipples, wrestling, masks, sex toys, robots, hot rods, rock bands, fish riders, hot pants, zombies, monsters, t-shirts, breasts, print techniques, L.A, Tokyo, Portland, Hawaii, surfing, devil girls, skeletons and many more necessities of life are packed into this 240 page retrospective.”

 

If anyone likes the sound of this crazy book you can check it out, on Erostika!

HIGHMATH

Its times like these we really wish some sort of teleportation device had been invented. High Math (a collaboration between Arkitip, Slow Culture and Altamont) opened last week bringing a mix of some of the most distinct and diverse artists to a rainy LA night. Aaron De La Cruz, Daniel Frost, Daniel Kent, Eric McHenry, Jay Howell, Kevin Lyons, Kyle De Lotto, Maia Ruth Lee, Michael Leon, Peter Sutherland, were just some of the contributors to this eclectic group – even COLAB’s  Mark Whalen joined the mix. Brainiacs get to work – we don’t want to miss another one of these…
