Bad jokes and new mural on Walcott St

Frankly My Dear I Don't Care for Spam

I recently got the chance to bring together two of my favourite things: Clark Gable and Spam on a wall on the iconic Learoyd St deli in Mount Lawley, Perth.

Clark Gable Mural

It was a project that was done on a budget with some serious time constraints… in the middle of summer. There was some damn early mornings spent at that wall feverishly painting before the sun came up and started frying me and my paint, but I’m actually really stoked with the result.

The old deli wall was covered in a bunch of advertising and posters, so I decided to work with what I had and create a fake anti-spam ad in the middle of it all.

If you’re interested in having a Fieldey wall mural of your very own, head over to my website and fill in the enquiry form and let’s make it happen!

Big shout out as well to my mega minion Mitch, who helped with the anal retentive bits… I couldn’t have done it without him.

Balcatta Senior High surfboard art workshops

I’ve been having a blast doing a surfboard painting workshop at Balcatta Senior High for the past 3 weeks. It’s for the Gifted and Talented Arts Program and I’m stoked with the progress these guys are making! How lucky are they to go to a school that offers these kinds of programs… the best we used to get was still-life painting and Lino cutting!

More Fieldey workshops are going to be coming to Sydney and Perth this year – if you’re interested in participating or want to suggest a location please contact me with the details.

Students preparing their boards for painting – we’re using second hand boards so they need a fair amount of cleaning.

This is one of my favourite boards and colour combos – clever use of the ol’ liquid soap effect

We have the coolest space to work in – lots of old tables, lots of walls to paint on and lots of space to get messy!

Finito – Tex-Mex wall mural a go-go!

Street art mural at Santa Fe Restaurant in Subiaco, Perth

I’ve always wanted to paint on a massive scale and lately I’ve been testing out my skillz™on some walls around Perth. I’m still learning to spray paint, so this wall at Santa Fe Restaurant was painted with a combination of sprays and Molotow One4all markers and refill inks applied with a brush, and I think it came out pretty rad!

If you haven’t seen this already I think you really should…

This is on another level! Take a couple of minutes out of your busy day to check this baby out… you won’t regret it! The graffiti is rad and the timelapse is making me über envious.

O Fortuna

Surfboard art

It has oft been said that through art we learn about ourselves and the world in which we live. Fieldey’s latest offering, Lady Luck – always stabs you in the back, teaches us a very valuable lesson: there ain’t no such thing as luck. Gamble with fortune, and you gamble with your soul.

Fieldey portrays this Lady Luck through the Hindu goddess Kali, whose name means ‘she who destroys’. Unlike the ancient Roman statues of Fortuna, adorned with angel wings and blindfolds, Kali wears a necklace of human skulls, reminding us that she won’t bring us good fortune; she’s a big, blue, four-armed sociopath waiting to impale us with her trident before she boils our heads to make her jewellery.

But will this stop us? Hell no. We love taking risks, and what would life be without the proverbial crazed homicidal blue bitch on our backs?

It’s all in the game, yo.
