Euroa Skate Park – Kitt Bennett

The town of Euroa has teamed up with The Evolve Youth Committee and played host to Juddy Roller and artist Kitt Bennett for a double mural install on the towns skate park and an adjacent music hall over the busy weekend. Kitt worked his magic on the skatepark, giving the aged park a fresh new look as well as hosting a live paint by numbers workshop for the public to get involved.

The install took place during the ‘Show and Shine’ car show exhibition, which is one of the towns most celebrated annual events. The weekend was definitely a busy one, and the town of Euroa surely made the most of it, including the mural work, face painting, food vendors, DJ’s on top of the impressive display of cars over the weekend.

The Paint By Numbers workshop was an incredible success, bringing together the community of all ages to contribute to their new mural, and everyone here at Juddy Roller are so happy we’re able to help contribute to these amazing community events. A massive thanks to our paint sponsor Taubman for their generous support, as always.

Wall to Wall Festival 2017

After returning to Benalla for the third annual Wall to Wall Festival, the usually sleepy town once again came to life to celebrate Victoria’s increasingly popular street art festival. This year’s festival drew record crowds and attracted many travellers and tourists alike from all around Victoria to view the high-end contemporary street art.

The colourful street art festival hosted an assortment of nationally and internationally renowned artists along with the local paint and chalk artists, who came together to brighten up the streets of Benalla. It was truly spectacular to see such high-quality artworks densely populating such a small area of space, transforming the cute town into a regional cousin of Fitzroy or Collingwood.

Adnate “Could We” Prints

In September 2013, Adnate was personally invited to visit a community located in an isolated area of the central desert in the Northern Territory of Australia. Led by Indigenous Hip Hop Projects and Katherine West Health Board, it was an incredible experience to join them on their journey. Adnate spent 5 nights with the local indigenous community, Pigeon Hole, also known as Nitjpurru. It was here that Adnate had one of his most important and integral connections with the indigenous peoples of Australia. He experienced first-hand their ancient culture, the immense beauty of their land and the people of Nitjpurru.

During his visit, Adnate was granted permission from the local Elders to photograph the members of this ancient community. After taking over 1,000 photos Adnate selected the most powerful images and painted 2 murals on buildings within the community. These photos have become the insprtion to some of the most important work of his career to date. They have been featured in masive murals in countries all over the world. Adnatehopes that this series is able to raise awareness of the Indigenous Australians and their struggle to survive in the modern world.

Adnate has yet been able to give back directly to the community of Nitjpurru and in the indigenous cultural spirit of sharing wealth within their communities, proceeds from the sale of this highly collectable print will be going directly to the local school of “Pigeon Hole”. This will directly contribute towards the education and wellbeing of the inspirational children of Nitjpurru.

This is Adnate’s first, hand finished Giclée print. The print has been produced using high quality archival ‘Giclée’ inks by the renowned Dangerfork printing company. All prints have been hand finished with a traditional ‘dressing’ applied to each print individually by the artist.

Juddy Roller was honoured to facilitate the production and distribution of Adnate’s prints which sold out in just over 24 hours.

Mayonaize “remixes” the pitch for Nike Football X

Melbourne based graffiti artist Mayonaize is already considered Australia’s premier Calligraffiti artist, so when we approached him to create an immersive work of art for Nike Australia’s latest project, he knew he was going to take his work to a whole new level.

The task; to create two artworks to fill two indoor soccer pitches for Nike’s international indoor soccer tournament – Nike Football X. The catch, the pitch has to be “remixed” by the artist for two tournaments.

Located in Melbourne, Australia, the pitches themselves are housed in a secret location known only to the lucky few to be invited to spectate and those good enough to play.
Armed with no more then a collection of mops, known more widely for their excellent cleaning abilities than their use as an artistic tool. Mayonaize personally customises the mops into oversized brushes capable of creating the long sweeping lines characteristic of his work.

After 3 long days, and countless litres of paint, the first stage of the multi-layered work is complete. Fortunately, for those not lucky enough to get an invite, Melbourne based photographer Nicole Reed was on hand to capture the entire process.

Sofles – Graffiti Mapped

This year was the first time that White Night Melbourne had worked with street art. Juddy Roller delivered an high-energy art installation titled, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped, a graffiti mapped installation exploring the interconnected nature of street art, technology and the online frontier.

With creative direction by Shaun Hossack, Juddy Roller assembled an A-team of experts in their fields to deliver Sofles – Graffiti Mapped; an interactive mural project combining animation, traditional street art and graffiti with a syncronised audio track.

Sofles is well-regarded as a one of the most cutting-edge street artists in the world, Australian born and internationally renowned. Animator Grant Osborne provided motion design and award-winning New Zealand-native Opiuo produced the musical score. The entire process was documented by acclaimed cinematographer Selina Miles, producer of viral videos such as Infinite and Limitless.

The end result was an epic installation that was a standout component of the entire festival.

Choqworld

CHOQ_mg_5384

Juddy Roller presents Choqworld – acclaimed Parisian street artist Choq’s first Australian solo show and launch for new video by Selina Miles.

The solo exhibition is based on the life and times, both good and bad of Choq’s world. Growing up in the gritty outer suburbs of the world’s most “romantic” city, Choq knows all too well about the dark underbelly of a place known only for it’s romantic scenery and artistic and cultural roots.

It’s this dark underbelly that has led Choq down a path to recreate this world in a way we can all relate to. The work subtlety reflects his inner most personal longings, his dreams and his goals. His weapon of choice to express such complex emotions? Cartoons of course.

Choq uses his cartoon worlds as a way to connect with a range of people; both young and old, rich and poor. This is the inherent beauty in Choq’s work. He crosses socio-economic values and ties in an attempt to bring people together as a whole and forget about the superficial differences. His work explores complex themes and attempts to offer a satirical critique of the modern world.

For one weekend only, Choqworld is set and the main exhibition space is being completely transformed. Don’t miss this one.

Choqworld opens March 20 March at Juddy Roller Studios and runs until March 22. For sales enquiries or to request a catalog, info@juddyroller.com.au.
