Under the Seed sprouted in West Footscray, starting as an eco-friendly organically grown garden with bio-degradable seedlings for sale or swap. Little by little the garden blossomed from herbs, fruit and vegetables to adding plants, succulents and cacti.
The concept ‘Artist Planters’ originated after commissioning Blender Studios artist Ruskidd to paint a DIY garden gnome using his brilliant techniques, and from there the idea was born. Under the Seed works side by side with local Melbourne artists to produce one-of-a-kind planter boxers to liven up your home or garden.
Artist Planters ‘where nature meets the streets’.
Sprung! brings together the first series of collaborative ‘Artist Planters’ curated and presented by Under the Seed and featuring artists:
Mitch Walder – Ruskidd – DNART – Kenz – Poise – Le Grizz – Frosk – Junky Projects – Stopem – Crisis – Ohnoes – Chehehe – Silk Roy – Facter – Zoe Mullins
Join us for the opening of Sprung! on the last day of winter, Friday the 31st of August from 6-9pm with drinks supplied by the lovely folks at Young Henrys!
Writers BERST, DEWS, FROST 45, GASP, HASER, JOINTS, MARK, KEZAM, and RAMS getting up at the Ironlak BBQ Burners Graffiti Jam in Auckland, NZ.
“Other than local graffiti battles organised by BERST, there are very few opportunities for writers from across the different generations to come together, and connect on a wall to share ideas of their process and style.”

‘The most valuable lesson my father taught me was to know when to walk, and when to clench both fists.’
Proudly presenting his debut solo show ‘Adherence’, Melbourne-based artist Dose explores a culture, people, and the evident blurred lines which orbit his world.
Dose provides the viewer with an opportunity to experience his current environment in which remaining adherent becomes increasingly more paramount.
Comprising of four tangible series of works utilising mixed media approaches on a multitude of surfaces, ‘Adherence’ draws definitions between graffiti and art, required sub-cultural errands, anecdotal relationships, and an ode to a youthful memory.
Exhibition open for viewing Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th of June

Having been based in Melbourne for the majority of his creative career, Dose has focused on providing technically sound and challenging works to the city’s surfaces, whilst developing suited studio based practices. The culmination of both disciplines have given rise to ‘Adherence’.

The longtime animator and color designer, who last worked on Miyazaki’s final film The Wind Rises, passed away on Oct. 5 at the age of 77 due to an illness. Michiyo basically worked with the same two animators for most of her career. She met Miyazaki, along with animator Isao Takahata, on the 1968 production of Little Norse Prince and had worked with both ever since.
Yasuda started working with Studio Ghibli from the beginning, when it was founded in 1985. She led the studio’s color department and animated on films dating back to Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind.
“What I like best is when I am building up the colors in my head, thinking of how to get the tone worked out,” she said in 2009. “Color has a meaning, and it makes the film more easily understood. Colors and pictures can enhance what the situation is on screen.”
Rest in paradise Michiyo
