The long long long weekend of March 9th-12th was a mad time for all involved with the Rival Revolution Studios side stage @ Maitreya Festival out at Carisbrook…..pumping tunes 24/7, 3500 hippies, 3 creates of spray paint…..loads of stupidly good fun…..here are a few scattered photos….hopefully we fine more as we find ourselves again…
Over Summer we hooked up with Chapel streets spectacular new addition, Three Monkeys. Located right across the road from infamous Revolver and next door to our buddies at Evolve skate shop, this cafe and crazy bar was instantly our new favourite spot. The day it opened we spotted this giant wall and instantly wanted to paint it, and they just happend to be looking for someone to do just that. Huge supporters of the local street art scene, Three Monkeys and Rival Revolution Studios was a match made in heaven. The owner Dave has been on the scene for years and has a collection of some of the worlds best street, graf and tattoo art which he kindly has hanging all over the walls for all to enjoy. We were super happy to be part of that collection and put a little of our own vibe into the place. You cant miss Three Monkeys as you cruise Chappel street, so be sure to pop in for a dam fine bloody mary and check the super sweet one of a kind court yard out back. Oh yes, there us much more than meets the eye at this joint.

Wednesday the 14 of September, 2011, was very day special for the three of us. For we were fortunate enough to be invited to do some live painting at Prahran Missions, “The Mission Caters” Event. We were given the main spot right in the front window of The Mission Cafe, it was an amazing opportunity to paint in our back yard, infamous Chapel Street. With the studio visible from the rooftop bar and already such an amazing collection of artwork on the walls of the Mission Cafe, we all wanted to do something a little special. You can head down and check it out anytime, its now a permanent fixture in the cafe. 211 Chapel Street, Prahran.
Last Thursday Piccolo Espresso (High Street, Prahran) was game enough to host the very first Rival Revolution Road Show. Whats the Road Show you ask? Well it’s pretty simple really. All the artists and Dj’s from the studio hanging out and doing their thing, playing music, drawing, painting and drinking. Except instead of being at the studio we were out there, at the bar, doing it all in front of a crowd of enthusiastic young punters. The night was an amazing success, a totally chilled vibe with some great tunes and great art. What more could you ask for really? Well, all I ask for is to do it all again very very soon please!! check out these photos from the night and I’ll see you at the next one!
