MENNIE X AIME
“Living on the coast has encouraged me to paint stories of my surroundings. This artwork is my interpretation of the East coast humpback whale migration, the white lines represent the whales and their calves and the dots represent spouting and breaching whales.”
Battle at Bruns 2018
We recently sponsored the annual Battle at Bruns skate comp, run by Byron Skateboarding School, Truckstop Skateshop and Byron Youth Service. After being rained off a couple of times the weather finally got its act together for an epic day of skating!
For The Boys
For The Boys is a community created by local Byron Bay legend Bobby Walker who wants to break the stigma attached to men’s mental health and suicide. Bobby has seen many young lives lost and wasted due to mental health issues and says “I was that guy that was so wrapped up in my life, I was uneducated and non- compassionate. I was the tough guy” but now he realizes the importance of being there for your friends he says “Please everyone, take a step back, think about your mates and talk to each other.”
Bobby is about to embark on a tremendous walk from Noosa, QLD to Byron Bay, NSW. This walk is Bobby’s way of spreading awareness about the struggles that so many people are facing and dying from on a daily basis. He says, “There’s a common pattern here. Women talking, men not talking and now (they’re) no longer with us.” Bobby wants to start the conversation and let men know that it’s better to speak up, be real with the people in your life about your mental health and risk people judging you than not speaking up. He says “Real is the new cool”.
Head over to Bobby’s event page and snatch up a ticket for the welcome home party in Byron Bay. All all proceeds raised will go to covering cost of the event and the rest will be donated to Mindfull Aus.

POPPED WENT OFF! 22/05/17
Last weekend Byron Bay had a true one-of-a-kind event. Abbie Gibson, Monique Hartman and Liesel Arden, collectively known as POPPED CREATIVE, executed what we are calling PARTY OF THE YEAR!
The team coordinated the revamping of Byron's famously shady 'Surf Alley' (aka spew alley) with the help and talent of the best local artists in the area. Namely SHMICK, AUSTIN, BASIX, NITSUA, BURG and TEAZER.
We got onboard with the team and made a limited edition range of socks for the event. Collaborating with five of the artists was one of the raddest experiences we have had and we are looking forward to working with these guys in the near future. Watch this space.
Over 2 nights the team held it's 'Laneway Activation'. Bringing the whole community together to celebrate the alley's new look. A pop-up restaurant by The Three Blue Ducks and a bar featuring Stone and Wood and Brookie's Gin kept the party going as live DJs spun to a packed dance floor.
The event also launched NITSUA's new Fresh Air Gallery, where the crowd got to watch live street art being created by the artists. Pretty sure everyone who witnessed it now has a much deeper respect and understanding of just how talented these guys are! The pieces were auctioned off live on Instagram, with proceeds going to the Lismore flood victims. So rad!
Check out some photos from the event. Congratulations to the team at Popped Creative and everyone involved for pulling off the most stylish event Byron has ever seen. Cant wait for the next one!
