What an interesting week it’s been for Melbourne street art. Soon after the snapchat fight between Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and Taylor Swift, went viral, Melbourne artist LUSH whipped whipped up a controversial memorial piece to Swift in Hosier lane, with the face updated with a character and text changed to Harambe, and then yet again altered – this time with […]

I met Adnate years ago as he was painting his very first mural on the side of a building in a back street in Fitzroy. We didn’t chat too much but it was the beginning of a relationship that has not only lasted but grown over the years. I have followed and documented his career – […]

HIC SVNT DRACONES by ROA at BACKWOODS GALLERY

I first actually met ROA at the Outpost Project in Sydney back in 2011. We had a brief exchange as he was up high on a scissor lift painting a large mural across the whole side of a building. In 2012, he came to Melbourne, created the controversial solo exhibition Carrion, visited Healesville Sanctuary and painted a few incredible pieces (video here) and before […]

GOONHUGS the street artist – I love his work and think he is one of a kind. Best known for his stickers and paste ups which can be found slapped up all over Melbourne, as well as the odd total shop front and bus shelter takeover. I was seriously lucky to have received a one off […]

First there was an Instagram shout out, then I received a little heads up with the finer details of an exhibition that was about to happen, and then The Age  article came out. The media article made the exhibition install even more difficult as the security were now on high alert at the National Gallery of Victoria  – […]

Kaff-eine was was one the first street artists I really followed. From those early days around Brunswick I felt like I already knew her a bit as I could see what she was doing each week through her hand drawn stories ending up pasted on a wall in some hidden laneway. It took a few years and lots […]
