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 […]

Sunshines Melbourne Street Art & Graffiti Top 10 – November 2017

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 […]

Sunshines Melbourne Streetart & Graffiti Top 10 – October 2017

This is what happens when you throw two street artists on a killer wall and let them go nuts. Deams and Shida couldn’t be more opposite – one extremely strict using perfect straight lines, curves and geometry, the other more organic and fluid with bodies that weightlessly dance. I am pretty fortunate that I get […]

This country is clearly divided about marriage equality, in fact I think the issues surrounding the topic have brought out some of the the best and the worst in Australians.

There are certain places in Melbourne that are continually refreshed with new pieces – whether street art, graffiti, political or with a social message. This one spot in Hosier Lane highlights the diversity of the creativity that we are all fortunate to get to experience….

A group of talented graffiti writers and street artists spent a Sunday afternoon painting a massive section of wall along the train tracks in Cremorne. The artists were not paid, they just wanted to bring some life to this classic spot for all the local community to enjoy. Unfortunately within a few months, all the […]

There is no denying that Melbourne’s LUSH is getting up around town like no other. The media can not get enough of him and his political and celebrity meme driven work on the streets with Seinfeld taking a photo at his portrait in Fitzroy just the other day. He was even foolishly mistaken for Banksy […]
