Billions of people around the world are celebrating the start of a new year and a new decade after the clock struck midnight across the globe. 

Sydney and Auckland became the first major world cities to let rip with huge firework displays, after a handful of remote Pacific island near the international date line had already flipped the calendar to 2020.

Organisers in Sydney decided to go ahead with their show despite calls for it to be cancelled amid wildfires that have brought swathes of devastation across the country, killing at least 12 and destroying dozens of homes. 

There were also fraught scenes in Hong Kong as the state marked the start of the New Year amid pro-democracy protests, as Beijing and Singapore celebrated at the same time. 

It comes ahead of Brazil and America who are still set to put on a big show when their times come. Hawaii will be one of the last to mark the end of 2019.

Fireworks explode after midnight over Garuda Wisnu Kencana cultural park as part of New Year’s celebrations in Bali, Indonesia, while tens of thousands of revelers in Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta were soaked by torrential rains as they waited for New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Festive events along Indonesia’s coastal areas near the Sunda Strait were dampened by a possible larger eruption of Anak Krakatau, an island volcano that erupted last year just ahead of Christmas Day, triggering a tsunami that killed more than 430 people.  

People flocked to temples and shrines in Japan, offering incense with their prayers to celebrate the passing of a year and the the first New Year’s of the Reiwa era.

Under Japan’s old-style calendar, linked to emperors’ rules, Reiwa started in May, after Emperor Akihito stepped down and his son Naruhito became emperor.

Although Reiwa is entering its second year with 2020, Jan. 1 still marks Reiwa’s first New Year’s, the most important holiday in Japan.

‘We have a new era and so I am hoping things will be better, although 2019 was also a good year because nothing bad happened,’ said Masashi Ogami, 38, who ran a sweet rice wine stall at Zojoji Temple in Tokyo, drawing a crowd of revellers.

Thousands of South Koreans filled cold downtown streets in Seoul ahead of a traditional bell-tolling ceremony near City Hall to send off an exhausting 2019 highlighted by political scandals, decaying job markets and crumbling diplomacy with North Korea.

Dignitaries picked to ring the old Bosingak bell at midnight included South Korean Major League Baseball pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu and Pengsoo, a giant penguin character with a gruff voice and blunt personality that emerged as one of the country’s biggest TV stars in 2019.

Award-winning Butetown street artist Kyle Legall is using art to help homeless people in Cardiff get new skills to help them find jobs.
Street artist Kyle Legall
Kyle, who has been artist-in-residence for National Theatre Wales and produced street performance project The Butetown Rats, hopes he can pass on a love of creativity that will help homeless people develop skills to find employment.
Future projects will include turning external walls of the centre into works of art.
The Huggard Centre has more than 25,000 visits a year from homeless and vulnerable people and aims to provide help for training as well as immediate emergency help.
The 20-bed hostel has an emergency overnight stay unit and 14 shared houses with 53 tenants getting personal support from the centre.
As well as providing support, subsidised meals and substance misuse help, the centre also works to provide training and volunteering opportunities and it is hoped the new art initiative will eventually help people into work, Huggard chief executive Richard Edwards said.

“It’s a warehouse where we have a graffiti exhibition every few months and people from different crews and communities come to exhibit. Legal walls are a really important thing to me. That’s where we can spend all day painting without having to look over our shoulders.”
As well as a safe place to paint, it’s also a way to learn from your peers and share ideas and tips.
“It’s one of the great things about graffiti – it’s the collaborative side of it,” he says.
‘You can explain it’
Social media is one of the factors Bryce cites as helping change attitudes to graffiti.
“Social media means people can not only put their work out there but also explain it,” he says.
That has helped break down barriers and anabled people to understand the work that’s gone into street art and the reasons behind it. Social media also means that work done on street corners can now travel the world digitally – turning graffiti into much more of a global medium.
There is now such a thing as “graffiti tourism”, in which artists travel and paint across the world.

Brunei Graffiti trip..

Posted on January 18, 2018 by Bryce

During my recent stint in Asia I headed over to Brunei to visit some friends and paint some walls. Brunei has a fairly young but very talented and humble graffiti scene with a great ethos behind it. There are some great writers and artists out there, and hospitality was through the roof! If you ever find yourself there, head over to Stain, the Graffiti store and gallery, which incidentally was inspired by our own Graffiti gallery space here in Cardiff, The Boiler House. Various walls painted alongside Budi one, Nerd ink, and Nycer. Big shout out to Tag one and the other guys I met and hung out with!

Ok, you’d be forgiven for thinking this post is about Rugby… especially as these pieces were painted literally right by one the gates into the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. However, this is more about a reunion between 2 friends who live at the opposite ends of the earth. My buddy Tepid was on a tour of the UK and of course had to come pay a visit. The last time we painted together was in NZ back in 2012 in Wellington, and then Christchurch. It as my turn to repay the favour and show some hospitality. Hopefully see you again in another 5 years…Â

Go Compare approached me to create a mural in their offices to co-incide with the launch of their new 5 values. It was all a bit hush hush at the time, and I wasn’t allowed to post anything until they had launched the campaign. They even covered up the mural from their employees until the time was ready. This meant a long weekend in a corridor complete with fans, extraction fans and masks, working to complete the mural while the employees were off for the weekend. Only the security guard knew what was going on. It was a fun project to work on with good people, watch this space for more.Â
