Re-Discover returns to Bunbury

It has been a little while since our last post as we Stylo’s enjoyed the leisure and luxury of our families during Christmas and New Year.  It seems especially fitting for the first post of 2015 to be about Re-Discover Bunbury which was one of the first stories we published.  What emerged as an incredible event generated by the vision and energy of Andrew Frazer has evolved in its second year as an enviable festival that stretches the length of our beautiful CBD.  And Stylo was there to witness the first pencil stroke on Monday past by Kyle Hughes-Odgers

In the few short days since Kyle began his work 10 artists are now painting various walls.  I am struck by the diversity of each piece, and the styles that each artists adopts to carry out their craft on such challenging canvases.  They have literally flown in from all over the country (and globe) to share Re-Discover with us.  Watching the friendship and camaraderie amongst the artists is very warming and you are reminded that people don’t have to exist within the same geographic boundaries to form community. And through this community Bunbury is also experiencing shared strength, camaraderie and pride. As each piece evolves the crowds continue to gather. This beautiful creature by Twoone pokes it’s head over the roofs of Stephen Street.

Parklets have also been created so that we can watch the artists at work, and share our thoughts and stories.  Personal touches such as free deliveries from local cafes, I saw ice being dropped off while a guy does his normal rounds, and parklets decorated with donated plants and trinkets – have all added to the community gathering.

Anya Brock’s piece in Stephen Street is being complimented well by the skills of Ayres whose precision turns a few geometric s into a modern landscape

These images are teasers that encourage you to venture into the CBD this week, grab a map and explore Re-Discover. Stormie Mills recognisable work captures a moment in historyphoto

And the start of Fintan Magee’s work gives us a taste of what we can expect.

Discover – ReDiscover

It is exciting times for Bunbury as a new wave of creativity literally takes over our streets.  ReDiscover is here. A walking street art exhibition that showcases 6 of Western Australia’s both accomplished and up and coming artists.  By the end of this week 6 walls (some discretely tucked away) will be painted by Stormie Mills, Kyle Hughes-Odgers, Anya Brock, Jodee Knowles, and local artists Tim Howe and Andrew Frazer.

Andrew Frazer is the energy and inspiration behind ReDiscover and through this initiative Bunbury can proudly step forward as a cultural destination, created and driven by a new generation of artists.

Like any driving force Andrew is not only a contributing artist but also pulls on the help of loved ones to prep some of the ‘canvases’ for our guest artists, including the Wombat Lodge wall. Where would we be without family!

Jodee Knowles will transform this space with one of her unique and identifiable characters.  Many Bunburyites and visitors will recognise Jodee’s distinct style, as seen in our awesome little concept store ‘The Darkroom’ on Victoria Street.  A must visit for any one.

ReDiscover artists will begin their paintings this Wednesday 15 Jan and Conclude on Saturday with a group exhibition at the Bunbury Regional Art Galleries from 6pm.  This provides the perfect opportunity for people to support the project through either purchasing an artwork, or simply sharing the joy of ReDiscover’s success.  Stylo will be following the progress closely and is stoked to share and support this amazing concept.
