Sunshines Top 10 Melbourne Streetart & Graffiti – January 2018  

When I was asked to get involved in this project, I just could not resist. Using street artists to change the towers of inferno outside Crown Casino into fire breathing dragons to celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year sounded like such a fun and unique activation. Five awesome artists were chosen – Conrad Bizjak Facter Makatron Ruskidd and Mulga check […]

As a documenter of street art and graffiti myself, there are some other photographers out there that I respect and admire – first and foremost Henry Chalfant and Martha Cooper for their amazing efforts in the 70’s and 80’s in New York, and then comes Rennie Ellis who was taking photos of graffiti he spotted in the lanes and […]

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 […]

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 […]

  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
