Documenting street art and graffiti in melbourne and beyond

I met Dino four years ago and have since seen his work around Melbourne. It wasn’t until recently that our paths crossed again at the Thornbury house he had spent months painting. Chatting at the property, he told me his story…. about how an unfortunate motorcycle accident damaged his right arm so badly that he […]

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 […]

Will Coles – the man that used to call Sydney his home launched his new solo exhibition aptly titled FUCK SYDNEY last night.  Realistically the artist and his incredible sculptures should have called Melbourne home but instead of leaving Sydney to move to our fair city, he jetted off to Spain never to be seen […]

It’s not everyday you get to meet a true street art legend but that’s exactly what happened in Sydney recently. Shepard Fairey – the man behind the “Andre the Giant has a posse” sticker campaign, the killer Obey clothing label, and the Obama “Hope” poster, was in Australia as part of Vivid Festival 2017.

Unwell Bunny is one of those super talented artists that has evolved from writing graff pieces to painting large street art murals to having solo exhibitions not just in Australia but Amsterdam, Los Angeles and Paris. Residing in Melbourne, we have been fortunate in this town to see so many of his works, commissions, go […]

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 […]

Outside the Box was an exhibition featuring 100 Australian based artists, in the month of October 2016 at No Vacancy Gallery, conceived and activated by Just Another Agency. This exhibition was unlike any other, all artists placed on a level playing field, no matter their status, experience, style, or technique. Each creative will have exactly 8 […]

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 […]
