Out and ...outpost!
yes, it's been a while.. but i have been out.. yesterday i took the family to visit Cockatoo Island (a short ferry ride from Sydney's Circular Quay) to check out Outpost. On until 11 Dec i'd recommend a trip..
The island is hosting street art.. with some of Banksy's works a bit of a drawcard..
But the photo opps start early..
Such an amazing venue to wander about..
with works around the island, artists still working..
others had left their marks behind.. (loved discovering concrete art!)
choose to wander the 'galleries' amongst the old machinery..
or take your pick (and crop) from outdoor works..
but i guess my favourite was wandering around the paste ups..
you can see a few more on instagram - look for dudleyred
pity i didn't get to hang out in the bar for a bit.. but hey - the kids (year 7 ) were keen to get back to the yard..
who was i to stand in their way..?
but if spray paint is not for your youngster.. then how about giving them a nice fat pen, photograph it on your smartphone, use fotofitti app to make your own stencil work! very nice indeed..
i was just about ready to get out the transfer paper and start custom making t-shirts.. but, alas, a gal has to sleep sometime...
