Crack that champaign on that wall!

The bubbles are flowing with this sparkling new murals

Pernod Richard approached us to revamp a beloved poster featuring the Mumm champagne.

We thought Gerad Taylor was just the guy to bring this to life. 

With a classy twist, the poster was rendered in a modern day pin up style.

Pernod Ricard commissioned Apparition Media to paint the artwork in some treasure venues for that extra wow factor.

Flaming Gallah Hot Sauce Illustration by Kev

From hot sand to a hot sauce. Australian icon Alf Strewart from Home and Away has now been immortalised on a hot sauce with his famous catchphrase "Ya Flamin' Gallah!" 

Teaming up with tech company GoDaddy, Actor Ray Meagher is the face of their new campaign to show how easy it is for small businesses wanting to take the next step and come online with their ideas.

We chat to Kev O'donnel about his take on doing the illustration for their logo.

"I never watched Home & Away but always thought Ray Meagher’s face was a classic. So when the opportunity 

came to illustrate him I was stoked. His character, Alf Stewart’s penchant for using “Flamin' Galah” is a gift for this job."

The limited edition sauce isn't half bad

Portals to other worlds

Artists are able to dip in and out of the imaginary world with a little more ease, a little more confidence and playfulness...blurring the lines like a child. This was beautiful illustrated when we came across Gina Kiel’s recent playful experiments.

When spontaneous moments of light and colour open portals to other worlds

Drives him crazy...In a bad way. 

Borja is a fine artist based in Madrid Spain. We have been lucky enough to catch up with Borja on one of his latest paintings. Have a read below to find out what inspired this work.

This painting started as a critic to all kind of "clichés" in the art world.  Probably all around the globe but mainly in the spanish art world.  The words you can see at the bottom of her t-shirt are "Escribe como si no supieses coger el lápiz, artista" which translated should mean something like "Write as if you don´t know how to handle a pencil, you artist" or something like that.  And the word "artista" is crossed with a blue line.  The thing is that writing as Basquiat did in his paintings these days is obviously a fake decorative element that drives me crazy.  In a bad way.  Fake art to try to impress people and sell a painting... and the problem is that you see that not only on people who are starting but also in "great" artists who are supposed to have quite a good background.  Anyway... that´s all... the idea behind the painting.  That´s why I also did this painting in a style kind of different to my works:  Using a big bloke of colour, almost abstract next to a realistic figure, as those "artists" probably would think "is cool".
