For the past 2 years I have been working with the D.A.G Disability Arts Group.
Every Wednesday morning we crack out the spray paint and the markers to see what we can get done in our 2 hour bracket. One thing that is certain is that we always have a laugh and forget about all our differences. The group has also been working in other D.A.G classes honing their skills with Acrylics, Chinese brush painting and a bit of Photography too with group founder and sharp shooter Hank Duchateau.
Next Wednesday 21st of November Open Studio will be hosting the first ever D.A.G Exhibition!
We all hope you can make it along...
The BLACK & WHITE ALL IN BETWEEN opened in Sydney at Ambush gallery to a massive crowd and a huge portion of the work sold to collectors and new art buyers alike.
The show was so successful organizers have decided to take it on the road with the first stop being at Open Studio, Coffs Harbour.

If you havent been in to catch the PHIBS exhibition at the studio yet, try and get in soon before all of the sold works get picked up.
Here is a shot of the front wall he painted at the studio. These pieces went really quickly on opening night and we had people scrambling to pick a piece before they got snapped up.
There are still a few watercolour works on paper and stencils on recycled wood available...
Yew! I'm happy to hear that the show went well in Sydney and that my work was among many of the works that sold. Big thanks to Dion and the aMBUSH staff for putting on a successful night and to the punters that put their money where their mouth is....
Below is a shot of the piece that I submitted for the exhibition. www.ambushgallery.com
If you are in Sydney tonight, I have some work in this show with a great line up of a few graffiti rockstars and a few old friends...
Open Studio has sponsored the event and will be bringing the show to Coffs Harbour soon.
The latest all-star instalment at aMBUSH involves a stripped-back selection of exclusive works from 67 international artists. Hand-picked, the artists have been chosen from a range of street, fine art, illustrative and graffiti backgrounds. Usually known for their bright, colourful work, the concept presents a new challenge; to work outside of their comfort zone and produce pieces focusing on composition, form and tone.
Open Studio is proud to present the work of the unstoppable street painting juggernaut that is PHIBS.
PHIBS will be producing work for the show as an artist in residence at Open Studio in the week leading up to the exhibition. The show will feature unframed prints, canvasses and work on found objects, all of which will be available for purchase for your own collection.
The exhibition opens at 6pm on Friday the 31st on August. The artist will be in attendance and there will be light refreshments available.
