Cockatoo Island in Sydney

The OUTPOST Project (4 November – 11 December 2011) transformed the industrial spaces of Cockatoo Island in Sydney into a huge event of street art.

More than 150 artists were present, such as ROA (Belgium), Ethos (Brazil), Kid Zoom (USA/Australia), Anthony Lister (USA/Australia) and the Everfresh Collective (Australia) who all painted and gave a great energy to the island with their art pieces: stencils, paste-ups, stickers, sculpture, graffiti murals and billboards.

Tonnes of them – which are very cool:

It’s still possible to experience the Outpost exhibits on Cockatoo Island over summer 2012. So we head there on a sunny day to check out the pieces, and we were absolutely amazed by the one of ROA – artist we really like!

Alongside the action, an array of pop-up bars, retail and gallery spaces, artist battles, demos, DJ’s, tours and art-making projects covered the island with activity for all ages.

See below some more pictures of what’s left after this big event:
