Yelpers turned out in their
droves for an Elite Event at Outré, the enfant terrible of Sydney’s art scene.
Flanked by a tattoo parlour and vintage shops at the business end of Crown St,
Outré is a counter-culture art gallery and repository of all-round radness that
specializes in underground, surrealist, street, tiki, retro, lowbrow, modern
folk and international pop art. A two-level kaleidoscope of floor-to-ceiling
prints had guests drowning in creative cool, with many startled by the sheer
affordability of such kick-ass artwork.
Yelpers frocked up for the
occasion and there was some serious street cred on display with the gallery
floor awash with tatts, leather skirts, bandannas, high-waisted purple pants
and even the rumour of a double nipple piercing in the hizzouse. No names, no
The spirit of the world’s most
famous tattoo artist, ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins, was in residence with Hugh
Payten-Smith from Sailor Jerry Rum slinging dark’n’stormys to all and sundry in
their brand-spankin’ black anchor cups. Such was the smoothness of the brew it
converted Yelp intern Angela Y into a born-again rum-drinker. Win.
The internationals were well
represented, with esteemed Yelpers from as far away as Valencia and Lyon on
hand to party Sydney-style, and a Yelp Elite from The City Of Lights (that'd be Paris) was on hand to scoop the door prize of an awesome book pack courtesy of Outré.
