Our From the Streets opening proved to be a wonderful success as people enjoyed the live performances of graffiti art by Adnate, Beastman and Shannon Crees. The silent auction started on the opening and will end on the last day of the exhibition on the 27 April. The exhibition is a celebration of raw creativity and craftsmanship of great street art from around the world and Australia. It presents some of the most exciting artists making art on and off gallery walls.
The exhibition included leading street artists: Mademoisselle Maurice (Paris), Chris Uphues (New York), Morley (LA), Jef Aerosol (Lille), Jaz (Buenos Aires), Slinkachu (UK) and Ever (Buenos Aires), as well as renowned Australian street artists Adnate, Beastman, Shannon Crees and Will Coles.
We would like to say a big thank you to Bill and John at Ambush for co-curating this event with our Australian collective artists Adnate, Beastman and Shannon Crees. To Dr. David Chong for speaking on behalf of Operation Smile, it was a pleasure to have your support and we hope that the funds raised from this exhibition will help support thousands of children in underprivileged areas of the world to smile again. To Adnate who travelled from Melbourne to be here, Beastman and Shannon Crees for your time, effort and support of this wonderful project, we can’t thank you enough. Lastly, a big thank you to Young Henry’s and Mexican Cantina for the food and cider.
