One of our recently commissioned works for Prospect City Council and the Maras Group on the new PALACE NOVA complex in Prospect, paying homage to the original Prospect Transport Mural in Tarns One's own contemporary style.
Bit of a throw back to last years Fringe, our artist's were accepted into the 2016 Adelaide Fringe 'Street Art Explosion'.
The creative duo that is Tarns One & Tayla Carlaw, created this huge wall battling heatwave conditions, thankfiully our good friends at Tin Cat Cafe were always there to provide us with shelter and refreshments. Great work by Claire from Tin Cat for spearheading the Little Rundle Street Art Project, and curating the Street Party in Kent Town with hundreds of people attending to check out all of the amazing art.
This wall was completed by 'TARNS ONE' in late 2016 just in time for the opening of the Royal Adelaide Show.
Some time ago we were approached by local Graphic Design company - WOODSCANNON, to produce a graffiti/ street art style skull artwork for the Nugan Estate Wine Company in NSW. The artwork was used for two releases, the first being the 2010 Vintage, 'Uprising' Cabernet Sauvignon, more recently it has been re used for the 'Uprising' Shiraz Rosé.
These releases were produced for export only and are only available in USA, Canada and New Zealand.
Thanks to the Place Making funding opportunity provided by The City of Charles Sturt, we have been fortunate enough to be involved in this very cool community project. Local school kids also got involved and helped paint the fantastic train installation created by Monica Prichard, while Tarns and Tayla Carlaw completed the Art Deco inspired mural on the front of the cafe.
Always great to see Mike Makatron, especially when he hand delivers these treats to us! We're very happy to have his new release book and art prints available in store and online! This guy is very prolific and produces great work.Check out the prints in our online store

FOR Unley street artist Adam Poole-Mottishaw, creativity is the way to get young people on the straight and narrow. Mr Poole-Mottishaw runs aerosol art workshops for youth in areas including Elizabeth and Mount Baker, and at his ColdKrush store and gallery on Unley Rd. He works to break the cycle of vandalism and channel young people into more creative pursuits.
“They are at that age where they’re breaking the rules and they want to be heard, it’s their kind of outlet,” Mr Poole-Mottishaw said. “A lot have the artistic flair, but they seem lost. “I’m not there to tell them what not to do, we’re trying to show them, if you’re proactive, you can actually some money out of it as well.”
Mr Poole-Mottishaw has been nominated for a Pride of Australia award in the Inspiration category, recognising teachers and role models whose compassion and wisdom while teaching, coaching or mentoring our youth has been truly inspiring.
Working under the name “Tarns”, he started out tagging. “When you’re starting, you want to be famous, you’re just a kid off the street and you want to be known, so you work pretty hard getting your name everywhere,” he said. Mr Poole-Mottishaw established an art course for students at Mount Barker’s Adelaide Hills Vocational College who were caught doing graffiti and attendance rates soared.
His street art is displayed in the Attorney-General’s office, on hit TV show The Block and in Adelaide cafes.
