Sensational street art and pumping beats detonate in The Rocks this March

This event has finished

Sydney’s most historic hub, The Rocks, this month plays host to some of the city’s freshest, most cutting-edge street art, with the award-winning Project Five initiative returning for its fourth (and biggest) year until March 25.

Project Five is an urban arts concept organised by Sydney’s aMBUSH Gallery and this year featuring the talents of a wonderfully diverse array of artists – street art queen Vexta; 2011 Metro Gallery Art Award finalist E.L.K. (aka Luke Cornish); acclaimed surrealist painter REKA (aka James Reka); and HAHA (Regan Tamanui), a veteran with 10 years exhibiting behind him.

These artists will be drawing, spraying, painting and creating on the cobblestoned streets of The Rocks while Future Classic Deejay’s play live and add a carnival-like atmosphere buoyed further by Artist Talks, a Retrospective Art Exhibition and a climactic auction.

And having raised $40,000 the past three years, all artworks will again be auctioned on Thu 22 March, 6–9pm at the foyer of Cleland Bond with proceeds going to charitable arts and media organisation Information and Cultural Exchange (ICE).

“Project Five has some of Australia’s finest street artists bringing the vibrant colours and life of art to the beautiful scenic and historically rich space The Rocks have to offer,” says aMBUSH’s Bill Dimas. “With cranking tunes it’s definitely not to be missed!”
