Early today Vivid Sydney announced its line-up for this year’s event starting in May. And we can’t get our eyes off the fact that Shepard Fairey is on the list. We caught up with Eddie Zammit to discuss the exciting news.


“It’s taken 3 good years behind-the-scenes to make it happen and we’re thrilled that he’ll be in Sydney for the first time in 14 years,” Zammit says. He will be headlining a Game-Changer talk as part of Vivid Ideas exclusively for Vivid Sydney in June – tickets have just gone on sale. Fairey will be speaking on Saturday, 17 June at the Sydney Town Hall. Tickets can be purchased here: Zammit confirms that, “The essence of Shepard’s talk will be placed on his DIY mantra.”

“Creating is about sharing ideas, sharing aesthetics, and sharing what you believe in with other people. Vivid Sydney is the perfect platform to do this in Australia.”

“Creating is about sharing ideas, sharing aesthetics, and sharing what you believe in with other people. Vivid Sydney is the perfect platform to do this in Australia,” says Shepard Fairey. As an artist he is best known for the OBEY art project, the HOPE poster promoting Barak Obama and more recently We The People campaign.

Outside of the talk, he is expected to paint the largest mural in the Sydney CBD. This will take place from 12 – 17 June. Stay tuned for details on that one. There are also plans to have a free exhibition at Darling Quarter.

More news as this comes to hand.

JUSTKIDS recently went at it again transforming Downtown Las Vegas in an open air art gallery for Life Is Beautiful Festival 4th edition inviting artists from all genres and countries, carefully selected by curator Charlotte Dutoit. What started as an inspiration in 2013 to create a permanent display of urban art in DTLV is now a confirmation. With more than 40 street pieces, the town is now painted and palpitating. While the growing success of Life is Beautiful adds a significant cultural string to Las Vegas, it’s the art that ties the knot by staying in the streets when the music fades and the festival fences disappear. Old Downtown and modern art fit together now like a odd couple that is everything but average. In just four years JUSTKIDS converted Downtown Las Vegas in the most excentric art destination.

Founded in 2014 JUSTKIDS supports a diverse team of inspirational pros and upcoming talents to meet the demands of a constantly evolving audience, delivering public art, gallery shows,
residencies and art branding, offering new experiences with top tier visual artists. To find out more about JUSTKIDS hit their website.
