Paint Up - Duke (Style) & Heesco - Movida’s In Hosier Lane
28 degrees and the sun is shining and I can hear the grand final at the MCG from Hosier Lane, which is where Heesco and Duke (Styles), combine their powers to create another sublime piece.
These two seem to work really well together, each with such varying styles Duke with his classic almost sketching detail and Heesco’s character development, just seems to get better and better.
I suppose when you paint as much as there two guys, progression is only natural especially when painting around so many different styles.

Event - KAFFEINE – HEARTCORE Launch – Collingwood
Our good mate Kaffeine is finally launching her new book HEARTCORE. HEARTCORE is a special project Kaff has been working on for some time in association with Berry Street. Check out the information on the project and charity below. We hope to see you at the launch.
The HEARTCORE Project/Book.
Some children suffer great distress and significant harm growing up with violence, neglect, abuse, trauma and poverty. What would these young people choose to tell strangers about their lives, if they had the chance? What would their stories look like?
In an Australian first, a child and family services organisation and a street artist are collaborating to create a unique and compelling body of work for the benefit of disadvantaged young people.
Short stories and poems written by young people in the Berry Street School have been interpreted by renowned Victorian street and contemporary artist,Kaff-eine, and painted as a series of street art works on walls across Melbourne. Professional photos of each of the walls have been shot by Rowena Naylor Photography. A coffee-table book titled HEARTCORE will be launched at the conclusion of the project, including curated photographs of the works alongside the stories that inspired them.
The HEARTCORE book will offer audiences a raw and confronting insight into the lives of these young people. It will offer the young people themselves a genuine opportunity to have their voices and their stories heard by many people, in their own words. It will also bring to graffiti and street art followers a new understanding of the challenges these young people face, and how they negotiate growing up in such complex circumstances. All proceeds from the book will support Berry Street’s work with children and young people.
You can grab a copy of the book here.
Established in 1877, Berry Street is the largest child and family services organisation in Victoria and worked with over 24,500 children, young people and families in the last year. Berry Street’s greatest challenge is to help these people recover from the devastating impact of family violence, abuse and neglect.
What: HEARTCORE Launch.
Where: 5 Glasshouse Road. Collingwood.
When: Thursday 25th September 6pm to 9pm.

Another exciting opportunity to announce today. Hosier Inc is launching their 2nd round of the Paint UP project and looking for Artist submissions. After the awesome reaction to Paint UP Round 1 (Adnate’s aboriginal character on McDonald House), it’s time for another mural in Hosier Lane.
Again the wall being offered has never seen paint before, so this is an awesome opportunity to put your mark on the Hosier lane precinct. Get your submissions in ASAP! They close on the 3rd of October.
Here’s a brief run down of the project, more details on the Hosier Inc blog:

You are invited to submit a concept for a large-scale image to be painted in the Hosier and Rutledge Lane precinct as part of the 2nd round of the PaintUP! initiative.
