- Brisbane, Australia
The Ironlak dream began in 2002, when a young graffiti writer from Sydney wanted to offer Australian writers a premium spraypaint brand at an affordable price.
As the first Ironlak cans rolled onto shelves in 2004, the price of premium spraypaint was cut dramatically, opening up a whole new world of possibilities for Australian artists.
Starting your own spraypaint brand from scratch comes with a (not so) healthy dose of landmines and headaches. The support we’ve received over the years from writers around the world is what drives us to keep pursuing this crazy dream.
The original spirit of graffiti lives on. Know who you’re supporting.
Ironlak Art & Design Sydney represents a new breed of brick and mortar retail for artists, and marks the launch of our extended range of Ironlak art supplies. Setting up shop in the city that gave birth to the Ironlak dream, seemed like the right move for our first Australian flagship store. Although our HQ is based in Brisbane, the brothers who started the brand were born and raised in Sydney and felt that launching our new direction in their hometown made a lot of sense.
Our roots are firmly embedded in graffiti, which will always be a huge part of who we are as individuals and Ironlak as a brand. After spending years making our spray paint the best paint in the world for graffiti art, and developing other products that made sense for writers, we realised that these products also served as fantastic tools for artists in the wider art community. Being supporters of art and champions of creativity, we felt the time was right to expand our product range to cater to all artists. In making this move, it was important for us not to half-step, so we spent a lot of time developing quality products and subsequently designing the perfect place for you to experience these products.
And with the help of Blake Ibbotson and the team at Fat Projects, Ironlak Art & Design became a reality. This is all just the beginning – we have so much planned for the future of the store, and we’re already cooking up new products to add to our offering. Watch this space.
Our new products include acrylic & oil paints, gouache, watercolour paint, colour pencils, technical drawing pens, gel pens, canvas, charcoal, pastels, sketchbooks, pads and easels. We’ve got new Ironlak apparel too.
