MAGAZINE | THSLFE: Issue 2

Having dedicated itself to the art of photography since it conception, the team at THSLFE have continued to split their time (and talents) between two of Australia’s most recognisable cities, Melbourne and Sydney. For their second venture into print, the team has (again) compiled a number of fantastic images and artworks into a sleek magazine to present another capsule of devoted artists and photographers from the twin cities of Australia. Available in limited numbers, THSLFE 2 is a sleek 52 page guide through the creative underbelly of Australia. ‘Hate This World, Love This Life’ is the official slogan for this edition, as every shooter and painter involved displays a flair for less appreciated. Whether it be distain for the boys in blue, tattoos, roads less travelled  graffiti and other forms of the underground resistance. Independent and undiscovered art makers are blended together, in no specific order, Mark Lording’s traditional designs sit next to A. Thomas’ suburban capsules. Which may seem completely contrasting, but through an impressive layout and selection process, are brought together as a cohesive connection, through the personalities and lifestyle behind …

Dirty Deeds Issue 13

MAGAZINE // Dirty Deeds Magazine Issue 13

I can’t believe it’s issue 13 and this is my first review of Dirty Deeds, a magazine complied of nothing but photo submissions from Australia and around the globe. While this is pretty standard for most magazine’s, Dirty Deeds in one of the only one’s to soak it all in and simply pick the best of the best, being only released once a year. While I’ve heard that issue number 10 was supposed to be the last, this latest issue proves that a magazine this red hot needs to continue as I honestly believe that this is the best one yet. Features, features, feature, it doesn’t matter what you’re printing, every publication has to have news worthy features, for which Dirty Deeds has never been short on. Call me biased, but when the latest issue has full-page spreads on European style lord Guzo, Queensland young gun Eats, the funky Suicide, the local exploits of NWO and 6 pages of nothing but OG23, a graffiti writer I can only describe as your favourite writers, writer… then there’s little you …

Street Struck Volume 1 1

MAGAZINE | Street Struck Volume 1

There are people out there that think the internet has killed graffiti and, in some cases, I tend to agree, but I am one of those who also chooses not to except. Maybe it’s my age, but I can’t really stand sitting at a computer screen [or even mobile device, these days] waiting to see what the world’s latest and greatest works are. It’s a fundamental reason as to why I got into these things we call street art and graffiti, I’ve probably seen work ‘works’ in the flesh, then I have on the internet, certainly more then I can remember. So whenever a magazine comes out, featuring some quality photo’s, it’s pretty damn exciting for me. Street Struck is the latest in a handful of Australian made graffiti magazine’s currently available, documenting the best of the best in the game, with it being made in Melbourne. It’s pretty exciting to have a Melbourne based graffiti magazine, dedicating to showing some our cities best work in print. This, the inaugural, issue of Street Struck does …

MAGAZINE // Hurt You Bad: Concealed Intentions #1

Anyone who mildly follows this blog knows that I am a big fan of the team up at Topsafe in London, whether its the Crack & Shine video or book series, I’ve seen and bought them all, included a fantastic Horfe print. So when it was announced that they were collaborating with the great Hurt You Bad blog to release a magazine about graffiti, I was instantly onboard. These guys have been a constant and consistant inspiration for me and this blog, with this latest installment being another must read cover to cover. One of the things I love about Topsafe is that, they’re the go to guys for some of the worlds most sought after writers at the moment in Horfe and Roids, making their jobs easier then some. But while they include these two in most of their work, they always seem to find more stories about more writers and artists around the world, collaborating with the Hurt You Bad team has only made it even more interesting. The tagline for this first issue states, …
