Outside Inn is an exploration of the accepted norms of suburbia and the sub-verse subculture of graffiti. Artists Kosie and Sauce struggle to find the perfect environment to practice their art due to the battle lines drawn by several local councils. The current political climate demands grey walls replace commissioned murals. As a result, these two artists have been forced to fit the mould of the gallery and display their works to the select few. Outside Inn is a depiction of suburbia, it could be any neighborhood around working class Brisbane. The straight fence, perfectly painted doors and neat lawns are all representations of the Australian dream. What the politicians didn’t account for was the expression of art which breaks trends and barriers.
