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 – […]

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  – […]

Before Adnate started painting incredible realistic portraits all over the globe, he was a young graffiti writer in Melbourne following the works being created for Meeting Of Styles, a European graffiti festival that started in 2002. The event was recently held in Melbourne for the first time with over 200 artists painting around the city and in […]

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 […]

I got the early heads up about this mural, was sent the address, drove down, took the pic and put it up on Instagram soon after it was finished. Little did I know that the story would go viral with loads of media covering it including local TV news, as well as Vogue Australia and global sites such as MTV  ET Perez Hilton New York […]

This was such an awesome project – over one hundred artists came together to paint in an old timber mill to help raise funds for local charities – organised by Arianna Leane, Alex McCulloch and Ken McGregor. Check the news article here and some videos here and here
