From humble beginnings in 2009, ma. gallery has grown to become a widely recognised “travelling circus”, showcasing over 300 creative types in Sydney, Melbourne & Tokyo. To celebrate its third birthday, there was a massive shindig at Sydney's Oxford Art Factory.
Amid art murals by Sydney-based international exhibiting artists Jumbo, Esjay, Bennett, John Hynd & Jaxie Yael, a bunch of bands, DJs, a load of booze and some live tattoos artists ensured that the festivities went off with a bang. Especially noteworthy were exceptional sets from La Mancha Negra (pictured above), Mother & Son (pictured, below) and Kill City Creeps. Meanwhile, Glitter Canyon (pictured, bottom) headlined the night with a histrionic set which saw them wrestle with individual crowd members and climb the rafters.
A fittingly fun and interesting party to celebrate three fantastic years of ma. gallery. Here's to many more.
