ADNATE recently spent a few days painting the rear of a building in Fitzroy.  The three storey mural features the Dalai Lama whom he met in person last year in India. He was very moved after the meeting and wanted honoured to paint him. In his words “I believe the Dalai Lama needs as much […]

I was contacted about The Art Of Banksy exhibition coming to Melbourne a while ago, and I had mixed emotions. It was not authorised but at the same time all the eighty original artworks were sold by Banksy himself thus creating a secondary market for his works. I was assured there were no pieces in […]

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 – […]

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 […]

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

This has to be my most inspiring project of 2015 – getting two of my favourite Melbourne’s street artists to collaborate for the first time on a large wall in St.Kilda. The brief was – use local artists to paint a big mural in a highly visible spot to help raise awareness of the Write for Rights campaign […]

I bumped into Soren Solkaer down a small Melbourne laneway in 2012 as he was shooting Kaff-eine for this very project. I didn’t comprehend back then what a serious talent he was and how his work would inspire me. Later I realised that there was more to documenting street art and graffiti than just taking a photo of a piece […]

I am so proud to be part of the Melbourne street art and graffiti scene. Street art festivals in other cities rely on money from local councils and corporations whilst here in Melburn the whole community gets together and generously gives time, effort, money, skills and artwork for a greater cause. Last week saw the Paterson Project happen with the […]
