This instant gallery is a long way from Dubbo, that’s for sure. It’s under the Burton Street bridge on Barcom Avenue, Darlinghurst.
That’s just one piece of paper fixed on the wall. But there are plenty more, fixed to the walls with fat slathers of glue. The DIY gallery runs on the walls on both sides of the avenue. Lots of names checked, and plenty of different styles.
Lots of collages. Mostly printed on paper. But otherwise, not much in common.
It seems like the work of a bunch of artists, maybe an art class?
[UPDATE June 7, 2010]
Turns out it *is* a group of artists, thanks to Hamish in the comments below. It’s a crew called International Noise – some of their work points to a site at internationalnoise.org, but there’s nothing there. You can find out more at Valentina Schulte’s website, she’s a member of the group. Apparently it’s a Sydney based artist run initiative with local and international artists collaborating using guerilla tactics to do art on the streets.
