Tree of Life

The lives of animals revolve around their living space, the rainforest. And since animals are not able to speak for themselves, the destruction of their habitat leaves them suffering in silence. 

This unique poster aims to highlight the responsibility we have in letting animal species thrive in their natural environment—we have a choice whether or not to preserve nature and let it grow. Specially designed to assert this crucial message, it forms the basis of social attitudes towards Mother Nature for the many people out there who want to make a difference in our world. 

Design Note: The Tree of Life print has been specifically designed to replicate a “rubber stamp” effect. This effect will result in certain portions being lighter, a little sketchy and sometimes even outlined, as compared to the rest of the poster. Please note that this is not a defect but an intended effect, as intended by Aaron, Gary and Khairul, the designers of the poster.

Sheet Size: 700mm X 500 mm (Approx 28” X 20”) 

Print Quality: Offset Lithographic Printing. Poster printed by A&D Printhub Singapore on Recycled 220gsm maple white by RJ Paper

This is What Happens When You Give Thousands of Stickers to Thousands of Kids

This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color. How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes. The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room, is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12. (via stuart addelsee, sccart, and heybubbles)

Hotel chain invites guests to Steal Banksy

Art Series Hotels is to challenge guests to steal a genuine Banksy artwork in a promotion created by Naked Communications.

The Steal Banksy challenge will see consumers attempt to get their hands on a signed print of the subversive British graffiti artist’s No Ball Games.

The picture – which the brand  values at $15,000 – will be on display at an Art Series hotel. If a guest removes the picture without being spotted they will be allowed to keep it, but if they get caught in the act, it goes back on the wall.

The project is being promoted as “Stay the night. Steal the art.”  

Art Series has three art themed boutique hotels in Melbourne.

Outpost Street Art Exhibition at Cockatoo Island.

I went to see the street art today… it was cold, raining and miserable, but that didn’t stop people from going!  Cockatoo Island was a great location to showcase all the street art.  Here are a small selection of photos from today.

If you haven’t been, or thinking of maybe going… you should go! The exhibition finishes on the 11th of December, next weekend.
