Cavalan (AKA Lc Beats) is a young film maker and musician from Marrickville. His latest short film is hot off the press and will preview at At The Vanishing Point - Contemporary Art, Newtown on Saturday 6 March with live beats and MCs, an exhibition of Cavalan's Kaos in King St sets and screenings of the recently completed film.

Kaos in King St, following Mayhem in May Lane (2008), is a claymation stop-motion film depicting the impact of the recently legislated anti-graffiti laws whilst drawing attention to potential consequences.

In production for 12 months the 20 minute animation features dialogue and caricatures of pioneering Sydney graffiti artists Teazer, Pnash, Phibs and Mistery - with signature works from these artists, individually reproduced on a small scale.

"I've never done anything like this before," Phibs said. "The whole process and the way it is put together is incredible. Seeing the finished result is very satisfying."

Scenes are set in real-to-life scaled models of the facades and streets of Newtown.

"I wanted the small scale sets to mirror the actual streets of Newtown", Cavalan said, "so I invited the artists to create their signature work on a small scale."

Cavalan is also a talented aerosol artist and beat-boxer who has performed with the likes of Morganics, Charlie McMahon, Thom Thumb, Rivals and Thundamentals. At the preview night he will perform live with the likes of Brethren, one of the longest serving hip hop crews in Australia, and more.

Luke Cavalan has a Diploma from the Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS) and is currently commencing a Bachelor of Digital Media at the University of New South Wales College of Fine Arts (COFA). Kaos in King St will premier at Platform 3 Hip Hop festival held at Carriage Works Redfern, Saturday 20 March.

Kaos in King Street received sponsorship from 567 King Graffiti Art supply store in Newtown and Australian aerosol paint company Ironlak.

IRONLAK PRESENTS: COUNTER STRIKE – THE UNKUT DOT COM MIXTAPE


Design: The Home Office

Robbie from Unkut describes the mixtape project: "If you’d told me that I’d be dropping a tape with DJ Doo Wop that featured exclusive tracks from some of New York’s finest back when I started Unkut Dot Com six years ago, I would have told you to stop smoking that shit. I’ve been through some ups and downs over that time, but Unkut has always held me down regardless. This is a small token of my appreciation to everyone who has supported and stuck by the site and kept things moving.

"Shouts to everyone who came through and contributed to this project on the strength. Thanks to Ironlak for the support, eskay and Legend for helping to spread the word and of course the one and only Doo Wop who really knocked it out the park.

"Still cold gettin’ dumb on you crumbs after six years…let’s go!"

Ironlak interview on The Source website.

Mini interview we did with Kazeem from The Source mag.

1. When and how did Ironlak start?

Ironlak started around 2002 but really came to life in 2004. It started because we wanted to provide writers in Australia with quality spray paint at an affordable price. Prior to Ironlak, Australian writers were paying through the nose for imported brands. We started with 10 colours and slowly built it up over time, improving our formula as we went along. After a while we started to get some interest from the USA and around June last year we started to sell paint in the USA. It's still a daily grind and it seems that shit always comes the hard way, but we never thought back then that we would ever get to the point where we could take this shit global.

2. What makes Ironlak such a good paint to "get up" with?

Rather than give you a sales pitch, I think the best response to this question comes from the feedback that we get from the writers out there; I'll quote Jaes COD from NY "It covers like butter, has a great color selection and a nice amount of pressure. It’s really good paint and it’s for writers, by writers! How can you beat that?" and Pose MSK from Chicago; "It’s crazy vibrant, has ridiculous control, and the coverage is unbeatable, point blank. Honestly just slap a pink dot on that bad boy and it’s game over. The paint is too much fun."

3. Who are some of the your favorite artists?

We are very fortunate to be able to work with many of the artists that we respect and admire. Take a look at the Family section of Ironlak.com and you'll see a list of our favourite artists from around the globe. Some other favourites are Skeme, Wane, Grey, Giant, Amaze, Nekst, Hense, Seen, Revok, Pubes, Rime, Espo, Persue and the list goes on.

4. Any thing new coming up for Ironlak Colors?

We just had a new bright chrome and tar black drop. Go get some!! We have a couple of other top secret things that we will be revealing soon, plus more limited edition artist series cans, more clothing and even some markers. Stay tuned to Ironlak.com for the reveal.

A really cool project that the gang in New Zealand are working on. Props to Askew, Berst and the rest of the crew out there for thinking outside the square. We are really excited to watch this unfold.



EPISODE 1: AN INTRODUCTION "Urban Development is an outdoor art project, the objective is to provide the platform for collaboration between artists across a wide range of mediums and stages in career. The project centres around street influenced mural work but will also draw in a variety of creative’s, both emerging and established. The concept is to think outside the conventional confines of graffiti, fine art, sculptural work, performance and beyond, blurring the lines and creating a dynamic and interesting project worthy of international attention. This Episode introduces the project through brief interviews with the founding collective, Berst, Askew, Snek and Tim Webber.
