Hours family member Brad Eastman (Beastman)

East Editions is a new project/business by Hours family member Brad Eastman (Beastman) and his wife Kelly. Their concept and vision is to work with established and emerging artists from Australia and around the world to produce unique, limited edition artist designed products for your spaces. Blurring the line between art and homewares, they launched just last month with a range of editions including a series of hand crafted and painted coffee tables by Vans The Omega, hand screen printed quilt cover sets by Kyle Hughes-Odgers and some hand screen printed cushion covers by Webuyyourkids. The coffee tables sold out in just 3 days, and their quilt cover sets aren’t far off!

We got a heads up on what to expect from East Editions this year, and you can look forward to some amazing hand made editions by Numskull, Marty Routledge, Luke Taaffe, Jae Copp and more. So head over to their website – - and have a look around for more information, and be sure to follow them on Instagram (@easteditions) and Facebook to visually follow the editions being created and know when they are available.

The Door Is Open

Council Accept Street Art

Dee Why commuters are in for a surprise, come Wednesday. Street artist Indo, will be constructing two to three giant Crate Men sculptures to be placed near Dee Why bus stop.

Not an ordinary everyday sight, to say the least.
Warringah Council has commissioned Indo, along with four other artists, to create public artworks that will revitalize the area. Crate Man has previously been constructed in Narrabeen, Surry Hills and at an event for Vivid Light Festival 2013

When asked, “Why build Crate Man?” Indo responds: “Because I can. It stands out. It’s fun & It makes people happy.” Let’s face it. Most people when waiting for a bus could do with some cheering up. It’s this positive attitude that Indo hopes Crate Man will inject into the area.

Crate Man is also intended to encourage people towards green living. The sculpture demonstrates how art can be made from recycled materials. Indo, a keen surfer having grown up on the Northern Beaches, has always been conscious of making a positive impact on the environment.

Crate Man will continue recurring sporadically in different locations across the city. Indo is also planning to Launch a new series of street art in the lead up to his August exhibition. The location is still to be announced.
