Recyclable street art
'Handmade' is an eclectic amalgamation of street art styles and recyclable art, which seems to possess an underlying theme of sustainability. In true Sydney Craft Beer Week style, there was an abundance of Little Creatures beer and cider, to be consumed and then placed in an exhibit that everyone can contribute to - "many hands make light work" as the designer group, Nowhere Famous, states.

Pilarties and Bad Jeep set the scene with some chilled out alternative tunes while we perused the rest of the art. With flowers from Flourish, recyclable plastic sculptures from Jane Gillings and tattoo art from Sprinkles, there really was a little bit of something for everyone. "Handmade" attracted all kinds of crowds on opening night: from families, to young people, to older people; it was anyone's art.

Flowers by 'Flourish'

One of my favourite pieces of the night was a geode structure by Numskull; untitled and questioning modern values of designer goods and consumer greed. It really stood out in the room from the other sculptures.

The gallery is open all weekend: 26th and 27th of October from 12-4pm. There is a lot of art for sale and this is a collection that is definitely worth checking out. You can find "Handmade" at 4A James St, Waterloo at the aMBUSH Gallery. It's free entry, so what are you waiting for?
