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

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 […]

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  – […]

This year he has unveiled a new direction and evolved works […]

In Melbourne over recent years I have seen RUSKIDD grow as an artist. Initially I noticed a few random paste ups featuring a cute bear’s face in a city laneway, and then I started seeing them EVERYWHERE. I didn’t know who the artist was back then but I did know he was getting up like crazy. I […]

Had the privilege to get a personal tour of this show by the man himself Henry Chalfant. It has been years that I have wanted to see all these images shown in a gallery – if anyone is in New York do yourself a favour and get down to City Lore  and check out this serious […]
