Mark Whalen: New works @ Melbourne Art Fair

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 30, 2012
Earlier this month, Mark Whalen (maybe you know him as Kill Pixie) had a grouping of new works on display with Edwina Corlette Gallery at the Melbourne Art Fair. We have done a lot with Mr Whalen over the past year (videos, studio visits, magazine features) but we think this is the first time we have seen basketballs in his work. We could be mistaken, but we think not.

All the things you hear about LUSH is that he pisses a ton of people off, and that he does so for some sort of Internet fame. Well, what's wrong with that? It's 2012, how else do you get famous?

Hotel in Australia Offers the Chance to Steal a Banksy

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 19, 2012
We had seen a few news reports about this in late December, but we couldn't quite wrap our heads around it. Art Series Hotels in Melbourne offered their guests the opportunity to steal a Banksy from the hotel grounds. If they got away with the theivery, they kept the art, and if they were caught, the work went back to the hotel. So, this begs the question, how do you not get caught?
