LAND OF SUNSHINE
Documenting street art and graffiti in melbourne and beyond

Makatron recently finished a large jungle mural featuring wild animals, lush tropical plants, insects, a waterfall flowing into what looks like a cenote and some overgrown old technology hidden throughout the artwork. The whole commission took around a week to paint and is part of Green Your Laneway – an initiative by the City of […]

Rone has just launched The OMEGA Project and totally transformed a quaint abandoned house in Melbourne into a temporary exhibition only open for viewing for just seven days before being demolished. Seven female portraits appear like ghosts – one in each room, inviting the onlooker to leave their reality and immerse themselves in the immediate surroundings teeming […]

I recently supplied a list of Melbourne murals to Vogue. The brief was to show a range of different street art which were still available for anyone to go and track down and see for themselves in reality and in context… see the article and all thirty two murals here http://www.vogue.com.au/culture/features/galleries/melbourne+street+art+map,41820

Q. What do you do when you take over a beautiful old building that’s about to be demolished? A. Offer it to your mates and a vast range of artists to use as a blank canvas before you put on possibly the best street art exhibition of the year! Here are some of the incredible […]

Rone started leaving his mark on Melbourne’s streets and laneways back in 2004 around the time the infamous Everfresh Studios began. Over the last decade, his career has skyrocketed and he is now one of those highly sought after street artists, nearly always travelling to the next street art festival or off to paint a massive mural on the […]

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

  When Makatron finished his piece we knew this was a special mural but we never expected such a reaction. There was major media interest locally and internationally and even an online petition we think it’s incredible and makes an awesome addition to Sunshine Lane

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 […]
