Whenever a new local coffee table book is released, we here at Side Street get a bit of a spring in our step. There’s something about the smell, the beauty and the paper-loving goodness of print that makes us content to stay in and flip pages for an entire afternoon. Especially considering that most of the time, the only new paper we see is the mailbox spam that informs us how much a house in our area has sold for. A HOUSE WE WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO AFFORD.
Anyway, back to coffee table books. Everfresh: Blackbook launches tonight at aMBUSH Gallery and examines the studio and work of the group of artists that make up Everfresh – Sync, Rone, Reks, Wonderlust, Phibs, Meggs, Prizm, Makatron, and The Tooth. All reports indicate it’s a pretty and candid look at the Australian underground street art scene, and since most of us don’t have street art on our walls, having it bound in a little collection on our coffee table is the next best thing.
The launch is on from 6pm to 9pm at 4a James Street, Waterloo.
