What a way to start the new year!

Out of the blue, I received an email enquiry from Tony of Ferguson Street Provisions cafe in Williamstown VIC.

“Could I paint their inside wall as a feature, in a short time period for a reasonable price?”

He explained that they had had other quotes from artists Id never heard of for astronomical amounts so he was already expecting my reply. I went down, sized up the wall and we talked about what he and the family ‘saw’ on this feature wall of their much loved family business. After I showed them a couple of examples of styles, and showed them more of my style and work, we agreed on the elements they wanted included and I went away to brainstorm a couple design drafts for them to approve.

 

This was a new kind of challenge for me as I’m not used to having the assistance of a projector for precision and efficiency but after this job will definitely think about utilising one for indoor, limited time, food prep area type jobs,  that’s for sure!!

It was a dream!!

And weirdly, after 4 hours of painting , my hands were pretty much paint free!!! (and anyone who knows me KNOWS that THAT is unheard of!! Even when I’m NOT painting! ;-)  )

This wall is a bit different -style wise for me and in all honesty I loved the challenge of doing something a bit different but with the same SEARious flavour!

A HUGE thank you to Tony and his beautiful family. I’m so chuffed that you love the wall and I look forward to dropping in to sample some of your works of culinary art!

Geelong Powerhouse Project

SEAR dec2014
SEAR Geelong Powerhouse Dec 2014 #dumbwaystodie

Last week I was asked by good mate and fellow artists DUKE/STYLE and Brett Fanning to participate in a HUGE graffiti jam in Geelong at an abandoned and neglected powerhouse.

New owner Ian has resurrected this beautiful building and with a little help from his friends , is turning this amazing space into a desperately needed arts hub for the Geelong region.

Over 50+ artists turned up on the weekend to camp, converse and paint this awesome space. The creative energy was palpable and the outcome of just 1 weekend out of many until complete, was phenomenal! I know that I lifted my game because i was pushed and encouraged by crew and fellow graffiti artists from all over Australia and even some overseas guests!

I cant wait to get back there and paint some more and help with the clean up and transformation of a much needed space. I may even end up begging for studio space😉 How can you beat a HUGE cathedral like space, right on the beach that you can paint freely and large and even park up my bus if needed😉

So exciting!!! A HUGE thank you to Ian and his helpers/partners for the invitation and to DUKE and Brett for all their hard work and organisation and to SIGMA 80 paint for the dopest shades and pressure available in Oz!!

More photos to come of all the amazing work!

Graham Street Port Melbourne gets a makeover!

For years the residents of Graham St. and its surrounds, have voiced their concerns regarding the safety and ‘ugliness’ of the Graham St. underpass and now skatepark. The dark and dingy thoroughfare for light rail commuters and the recreational area for the young people of Port Melbourne has been an ongoing concern that has either been put in the ‘too hard’ basket or just ignored….UNTIL NOW! Port Phillip council recently hired 8 of Melbourne’s prolific graffiti artists and youth mentors to give the area under the Graham St bridge a colourful makeover. Launching TODAY (29th November 2014) from 2pm-5pm, the finished artworks have transformed the area from an antisocial, intimidating hovel to a welcoming, bright, colourful, fun and safe feeling space that the youth of the area can call ‘home’ when away from home.

I finished 2 complete pillars on my own and collaborated with the amazingly talented artist (and my treasured friend) D.ROQ -(formerly known as ISIS) on another 4.

Community feedback over the 2 weeks of painting was nothing but positive! People tend to forget how much we are affected by our environments…changes WILL affect moods and behaviour.

If you have a neglected area in your neighbourhood that you think could do with a colour blast, contact me or your local council and get them to contact me at searious.jones@gmail.com.
