It was a packed schedule of talks, exhibitions and events at the inaugural Rainforest Fringe Festival I was invited to (via work). Here’s what I managed to snap in the hour or so I spent wandering the streets near The Old Court House where the Fringe Fest was held.
My first visit to Sydney was in 2010. Stephanie had recently moved there and as I was in Queensland for a press junket I had to visit. She introduced me to some of the neighbourhoods – Potts Point, Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, took me to the most amazing eateries, and on one ridiculously sunny winter’s day drove me out to Bondi Beach.
It was Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic’s work that first captured the imagination of Penangites and visitors to the island. But since then there’s been a proliferation of creativity taking to Georgetown’s walls, including some super kawaii cat and kitten themed designs.
Los Angeles is home to some amazing street art and artists like Kofie One, Homo Riot and Mear One. I hit up Melrose east of Fairfax and found Renta’s distinctive calligraphy and Alec Monopoly’s trademark Monopoly Man among the eye opening pieces decorating this thoroughfare.
