'Revolve' is an exciting new opportunity for local, national, emerging and established artists to exhibit their work at Cold Krush Store/Gallery.
Our aim is to create a revolving door of art on our walls. The work will be exhibited for 6 weeks for the walks of life that step through the Cold Krush door.
We are looking at exhibiting 3-4 artists per opening. Artists are encouraged to exhibit 2 - 3 pieces (Any more will have to be discussed), prints will also be accepted. Due to space constraints each artist may submit a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 3 complete works. Each work must stay within 70cm x 70cm size limit. (Sculpture and Larger works are to be discussed)
The Revolve project will have its first opening on Friday, 20th February from 6-9pm at Cold Krush Store/Gallery as part of the Adelaide Fringe, and will be on display for 2 weeks rolling over to the next group of artists to exhibit for the following 2 weeks. Once the Fringe has ended Revolve will extend it’s openings to a period of 6 weeks. This will be an ongoing event.
If you are interested in participating in this exciting opportunity at Cold Krush Store/Gallery please email email@example.com 3-4 images of your artwork and provide a 250 word statement about who you are as an artist, and what kind of art that you do.

Today, one of the in house artists at Cold Krush, Fleur, facilitated an aerosol workshop. Today's workshop gave the participants new skills about can cantrol, and how the brands of spray paint operate with different caps used.
Many brands that are on the market specialise in Canvas work and Mural work. There are plenty of caps on the market too! The different caps for the spraycans are on a scale for Skinny/Thin (for more detailed work) to Extra Fat (to fill in larger areas quickly). We understand that some people may find, at first, this type of art form to be challenging. To start off with we begin the workshop with an introduction to all the aeorsol paint stocked at Cold Krush and the different caps you can use for the different cans. We personally love the Montana level caps, Grey hoods and the classic NY Fat cap, our particpants fell in love with these pretty quickly too.
If your interested in taking part in Cold Krush's next workshop, mark your calanders for the Summer Holidays as there will likely be a workshop then, or to secure your place now please register your interest by contacting us to ensure you're kept up to date with any news for our next Aerosol Workshops.
Fleur was so happy to have kicked some knowledge to these particpants today, and we all really hope they continue their artistic endeavours as they are all very gifted and natural born sprayers!Interested?... Click here for more info!

More recent mural work by Mainstay's, Tarns and CWR. This time the guys go large on the side wall of the new Joggers World outlet on Fullarton Road.
For all who have a love for Art... even if you feel like you don't have a creative bone in your body you will leave our workshop, able to tell your peers that you have tried your hand in 'Aerosol Art'.
After completing a workshop you will be one step further to continuing using Aerosol paints as a new medium to add to existing art techniques or to start using Aerosol for larger scale community based murals.
Cold Krush Facilitators have had many years experience with Aerosol as their main choice of Medium and are all to happy to share their 'secrets', if you will, about how to get started on Aerosol projects for yourself.
COST: $140.00 (with Canvas) Participants will be provided with a 1m x 1m Blank Canvas (to be taken home at the end of the workshop). We have another option also which is $90.00 (without Canvas)
ALL participants will be provided with gloves, masks, aprons and Aerosol paint, please wear old clothes.

Cold Krush is always supporting events for the love of Hip hop and all the elements that come with it!..
Sponsored by Cold Krush Store/ Gallery and MTN Australia, The NA crew combined their styles and created an backdrop of pure heat for the Freestyle Session Australian Qualifier - Breaking battles that rocked the Australian Dance Theatre in Hawthorn on Saturday the 13th of September, 2014.
The competition was fierce, and there was so much heat packed into the day. Australia and New Zealand's best breakdancers battled it out for the title to represent the country at the world finals in San Diego, California.
A huge successful event, and wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for 'PoeOne' the organiser and international winner of breakdancing competition just like this one.

The opening of Grot's first solo exhibition was on Friday night, it was a fantastic night had by all.. It was great to see all those lovely familiar faces, all the new faces coming through Cold Krush and to top it off, the live piece thrown on the back wall by the man himself 'GROTS'.
A massive 'thanks' on behalf of the Team at Cold Krush to all those who made it to the opening night and showing your support. It was fantastic to see such a huge crowd!.. For those who didn't make it, the show will still be up for another 2 weeks so be sure to pop in and check it out.
Here are some pictures taken throughout the night..
He’s a man of many hats; lead singer of a mathcore band ‘A Ghost Orchesta’ and a man who paints the town green when quiet Adelaide goes to sleep. We are excited to announce his first solo exhibtion will open at Cold Krush on Friday, 5th of September (6-9pm). I Sat down with The Dreadful Grots, and asked a few questions to find out what makes this guy tick.
F: When did you start writing?
G: Well I first started doodling on paper and down alleyways in 2001 when it was all fresh to me, but I guess going out of my neighbour hood and trying to get my name up properly would be 2003/2004.
F: What was your inspiration to pick up a can for the first time?
G: Growing up on the B-line side of town and seeing old ‘Sumn’ and ‘Okur’ bangers floating on the line really got my eyes jiggling (these were the only ones I could read before I knew what graffiti pieces properly were. I use to find old scraps of paint hanging around the Lynton tunnel and would use them to my advantage.
F: What Crews do you rep?
G: F1, EG, TGB's yo!
F: Who are your main influences in the Graffiti Game?
G: To myself as a painter are my brothers around me, Vans the Omega, Roger, Ogre, Guids, Sirum, and Okies. They get me Rollin!
F: Do you have a favourite memory to share?
G: Its hard to pin point a "favourite" memory but jesus, every time that wonderful paint hits that boring grey wall is fantastic. Meeting and having the chance to paint with some all time favs does make me jolly!
F: What’s on the horizon?
G: The next big project for me is to push my boundaries a little more each time those pigments hit the wall. I want to make things enjoyable for the non-graffiti eye to freshen up to.
F: What are your other interests?
G: The other side of my life is music. I’m a vocalist in a southern hardcore type band called 'A Ghost Orchestra'. Most hip hop heads probably won't like the sound of it but check it out anyway!
F: Do you have any tips or advice for the up and comers?
G: Be yourself, don't worry what other writers say. Live life on the fresh side!The Dreadful Grots Event Page!
