Cockatoo Island in Sydney
The OUTPOST Project (4 November – 11 December 2011) transformed the industrial spaces of Cockatoo Island in Sydney into a huge event of street art.
More than 150 artists were present, such as ROA (Belgium), Ethos (Brazil), Kid Zoom (USA/Australia), Anthony Lister (USA/Australia) and the Everfresh Collective (Australia) who all painted and gave a great energy to the island with their art pieces: stencils, paste-ups, stickers, sculpture, graffiti murals and billboards.
Tonnes of them – which are very cool:
And pretty much everywhere, pieces like that:
Here is the masterpiece done by ROA with australian animals such as kangaroo, platypus, etc…
It’s still possible to experience the Outpost exhibits on Cockatoo Island over summer 2012. So we head there on a sunny day to check out the pieces, and we were absolutely amazed by the one of ROA – artist we really like!
Alongside the action, an array of pop-up bars, retail and gallery spaces, artist battles, demos, DJ’s, tours and art-making projects covered the island with activity for all ages.
See below some more pictures of what’s left after this big event:
A few huge billboards installed in the warehouses or even outside:
And a lot of pieces from the Junky Projects:
