FOR SYRIA'S CHILDREN
Artist: RONE

Artist: RONE

Inspired by his recent trips to war torn Syria, to make art with children in Aleppo, international artist ELK (Luke Cornish) created the not for profit ‘For Syria’s Children’ (FSC) an Australian fundraising project aiming to provide financial assistance to young Syrians that have been tragically affected by the relentless Syrian civil war.

FSC’s sole objective is to raise vital financial aid that will be directly provided to a number of local (on the ground) Syrian organisations that are in desperate need of supplies for basic amenities in orphanages, medical facilities and schools.

FSC believes in providing absolute transparency as to how donations will be used. There will be minimal fees involved for the fundraising event and financial provisions for the nominated FSC representatives to travel to and from Syria to deliver the financial aid. There will be no other major administrative costs, allowing for a large percentage of all donations to be delivered directly to Syria’s most vulnerable.

BAD ACID

BAD ACID is a group show featuring artists Alex Lehours, Lé Grizz, Lee McConnell, Mike Watt and Sindy Sinn. Each artist explores the mind melting theme to create an original, acid-laced body of work that features five new pieces on paper (all framed). Make sure you drop a tab or your own BAD ACID before you hit the town on opening night, to reep the full effect from this tripped out exhibition. Full event deets underneath this post:

HOODS - AN ART EXHIBITION
Art by Ben Brown

Art by Ben Brown

'Hoods' brings together ten Australian artists under one roof. In late 2015, Fuel Magazine® started production of this exciting project. GM Holden were approached to be involved, their contribution being to provide ten brand new bonnets, each to be used as a canvas upon which an artist would create a piece of art with no given brief. Ten street, graphic and automotive artists from Sydney and Melbourne were hand picked and the bonnets delivered to each studio. A few months later, the bonnets came back as works of art and it's these pieces that will collectively be on display at Suus. 

Created and curated by Fuel Magazine® creative director Luke Ray, the Hoods exhibition is set to be one of Melbourne's most exciting art displays this year.

'Hoods' will be taking place between 23rd July and 7th August 2016 (closed Mondays) at Suus, 12 Smith Street, Collingwood. 

Opening night - Friday 22nd July 6-11pm, open admission.
