A small town in the Sacred Valley away from the hustle of Cusco.
A gallery of some of the new works created for the Wonderwalls 2017 Festival at Port Adelaide and here is a link to a short video on Vimeo shot over a few days.
Update – 23 April 2017
The mural was completed at 4.30pm after 3 days on site.
Thanks to all of the people that stopped to chat and find out more about the story behind it it.
I will post some pictures and more details about the project in May when the weather improves.
Wonderwalls is a 3-day street art mural festival being held in Port Adelaide on April 21-23, 2017.
Over 25 large scale exterior murals will be painted over the three days and the general public are encouraged to watch the artists create their murals.
International, national and local artists will be transforming the historic district of Port Adelaide. A free program of exhibitions, guided tours and photography workshops are also part of the event.
I will be installing a work in Black Diamond Square, next to the Lighthouse, and I will post more details here as it takes shape. I will start work on it on Friday 21st and hope to have it completed by late afternoon on Saturday 22nd.

I first entered the Watershed Art Prize in 2009. The Prize encourages awareness of water as a precious resource and significant environmental management issue.
The entry that was shortlisted for this theme was a studio shot of a rusty old sprinkler I bought from a junk shop. At the time I was doing a photographic series on water conservation as water restrictions were being applied in suburban Adelaide.
I have now entered the Watershed Art Prize for a second time and have been shortlisted with my image Clear Springs Mosaic that featured in the SALA Festival last year, but was produced within 12 months of the last Watershed exhibition.
The Watershed Art Prize is open from April 28 to 2 June 2017. More details at the Watershed Art Prize web page.
Mane played one-show only at Womadelaide on Sat March 11th.
The otherworldly vocals and charming stage presence of Port Pirie singer MANE (AKA Paige Renee Court) has quickly brought her to international attention, including exposure on Triple J Unearthed, shows in New York and Nashville, and two 2016 SA Music Awards. A standout live performer with her four-piece band, whose indie-folk music is laced with pop and blues. (text source, womadelaide.com.au).
The Only natural exhibition will be open to the public until the last customer leaves on the evening of Sunday October 2nd.
If you are visiting the adjacent OzAsia Festival the exhibition is easy to find at the eastern side of the King William Street Bridge on the banks of the River Torrens.
Thank you to all of those that helped with the staging of this exhibition with special mentions to the team at Jolleys Boathouse Restaurant, the SALA Festival Office, Atkins Photo Lab and the Port Adelaide Enfield Council for the Special Opportunity Arts Grant.
4,600 artists presenting work in 630 exhibitions. Start planning now.
The SALA website has all the exhibitions and events and you can search by location, medium and date etc.
Home or office?
And in the DIY spirit of SALA utilising the technology available to us I have installed an ordering system on this website. So if there is an artwork you like I would be more than happy to help you have one to display in your home or office or perhaps give as a gift. The photographs are not limited edition so reprints will be made as demands requires.
There are a variety of options available to purchase as unframed prints or in alternative finishes and frames. But first things first, pop down to Jolleys Boathouse before Friday September 30th and have a look.
The 2016 SALA Awards were announced on Friday July 8th.
There were 13 Award categories announced and I am very happy to be a finalist in two of them, The Centre for Creative Photography Latent Image Award and the Atkins Photo Lab Award.
On the night the CCP prize was awarded to Nathan Stoltz, however for the Atkins Photo Lab Award five exhibitions were selected and they will be judged at the venues during the SALA festival.
Funding appears to be secured to increase the capacity of Her Majesty’s Theatre.
The existing two levels of seating will be expanded to three, as it was originally over 100 years ago. Above are a few photographs I took in the existing ceiling space in 2012 and these reveal some of the original signage and decorative elements. Full story at the ABC News website.
