DeviantArt is always a bustling hub of wonderful artistry, but it’s members like workbynight that really get me excited about it. The Australian-based digital artist takes everyday items, such as doughnuts, buttons and material patches, and smashes them together to recreate famous works of art. The resemblance is legitimately crazy.
It’s interesting how far some people will go for certain rewards, but how far is too far? That’s what Australian snack company Fantastic Delites wanted to find out when they installed a “Delite-O-Matic” machine in the street. The machine required passersby to perform certain tasks in exchange for free snacks – the tasks ranging from […]
When Australian Spencer Dale was 26 he travelled to Cambodia’s Phnom Penh, narrowly escaping capture by the communist Khmer Rouge fighters. After being rescued by General Norodom Chantaraingsey, the two shared an amazing friendship over the five following years which saw Dale fight in one of the bloodiest civil wars of modern times. Fourty two […]
Unless you’re from Sydney, you’ve probably never heard of the small town of Airds. Lying on the ‘outskirts of the Australian dream’, Airds is known for its prominent social housing community; an often under-acknowledged and avoided area for those who have no purpose there. All this is set to change, though, with 70% of the […]
You really can’t blame this artist for being anonymous; we aren’t fans of $5000 fines or two year holidays in jail either. Popping up on the Internet quite randomly, the blog Bunchof5s is an extremely humorous and insanely clever art project which sees the Australian $5 note get more than one ah face-lift. Yes, good […]
A fashion label that doesn’t give a hoot about fashion? You heard right. New Sydney design collective Eager & Vane certainly don’t. They are creating wild and outlandish silk scarves in joyous prints with surrealist motifs for the oblivious trendsetter: scarves that make the wearer feel as individual and special as their designs. The three […]
Sunski sunglasses were practically an Australian institution, but over time people forgot about them and they were nearly lost to the pages of history. Enter American duo, Tom and Michael – saviours of the Sunski. Three years ago Tom returned from a surfing trip to Australia with a few pairs of the classic sunglasses in […]
Out of all the countries in the world, you really wouldn’t expect Australia to be leading the revolution in sexy lingerie for men – but they are. Designed by Australia store HommeMystere, the bras, panties and nightgowns are a world away from a mans usual underwear of choice.
Australian airline Qantas have always been at the forefront of innovation. Partnering with advertising network Droga5 and publishers Hachette, their latest initiative sees the airline creating a series of novels that last for only as long as the flight. Entitled ‘Stories For Every Journey’, the series is a pretty neat idea. The only we problem […]
It seems Australia has had a bad case of Daft Punk fever this last week, with the iconic band’s latest release, Random Access Memories, being launched in the country town of Wee Waa. Brisbane band Pigeon have been diagnosed with a particularly bad case, posting up a medley of a number of Daft Punks hits […]
Buff Diss is an amazing street artist from Australia who creates insane masking tape graffiti. If you’re thinking the use of tape would be detrimental to the the designs he could create, you are very wrong. Diss’ designs are intricate, well thought-out and easily removeable. What more could you ask for? Although, I’m not too sure you would want to remove the works of art. They make a lot of the spaces look a lot better, in my opinion.
Sometimes I like to gaze up at the sky and slowly watch the clouds swirl around overhead, or look at the different ways that light hits portions of a vast valley. I think that’s what I like about nature: the fact that nothing is ever the same, nor will it ever be again. Therefore, I’m […]
Spanish Magic are a rad underground music label from Sydney. Selling a bunch of stuff at Vox Cyclops in Newcastle until they shut down, Spanish Magic releases are now most easily accessed via their online store.

Coming from humble beginnings (a collaboration between members of Tragic Delicate and Karnivool), Birds of Tokyo have gone on to become one of Australia’s most influential bands. Their ability to adapt, build and totally recreate themselves has been impressive. The writing and recording of their fourth album, March Fires, has seen them rip apart anything […]
