Sticky Fingers Apparel Launch Show Recap

So the launch and show has come and gone. We had the great pleasure of combining the t-shirts with great fresh art from all of our contributing artists.

For one day only we took over K+N Studio in Richmond. An awesome place for a full-time studio or exhibition space. Check them out here:  https://www.facebook.com/kranniesandnookstudio

We also debuted our newest contribution from the mighty Marian Machismo!

Lots of links right there, but we would love to hear about what is catching your eye on the street. So hit us up in the comments or on Facebook or Insta.

Welcome Barek

T-shirts from Melbourne street art and a Brisbane artist is featured?
Welcome Barek!

Ok. Here’s the confession. Barek was one of the first artists I traded with. I sent some paste ups and was blown over with the return package of stickers, pasties, miniature paintings and a badge made from puzzle pieces! Barek must be one of the most prolific traders and subsequently you can’t walk around Melbourne and not come across his trademark foxes or trolls.

Or those Barek eyes. You know the ones. Iconic. Capable of such meloncholy with just a few lines. Barek covers all the bases from stickers to murals and every sort of found or reclaimed object in between. So prolific, everything he does is hand drawn. You won’t find any prints on his for sale list. Check him out on Facebook for his awesome originals or maybe a commissioned piece.

The art for art trade, so popular in the sticker scene, has brought a significant Queensland presence to the streets of Melbourne. Some that spring to mind are Cherie Strong, Minou, Dubse, Skullcap and Philb. Go check them out and please add some more Brisbane artists to the list in the comments!
