Wreckers Yard

It was great to once again be selected as one of eight artists to compete in Wreckers Yard live graffiti art battle. Bar Soma in Fortutude Valley was packed as the competition kicked off last Thursday night. Each heat consisted of a twelve minute, one on one battle where a theme is picked from a hat a couple of minutes prior to commencing. There were some very challenging themes and skilled artists producing some great spontaneous works ensuring judging was close. As the rounds progressed the canvas size was reduced and the time extended to fifteen minutes for the final. I am pleased with my efforts gaining a second overall. Congratulations to Gimiks who took out first place and will head to Melbourne to represent Brisbane in the trans-Tasman final on the 25th of June.

Respect to Red Bull, Skullcandy, Ironlak, VC Clothing and G-shock for sponsoring Wreckers Yard.

International Mural Fest 2010

I was selected as one of nine finalists in the Sheffield International Mural Fest paint-off 2010. Artists from Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Tasmania and New Zealand competed for prize money and prestige at Mural Park set beneath the inspiring Mt Roland, Tasmania.

Each artist was selected based on a miniature. This years theme poem was "Home" By Cindy Bennett.

From dark cave to seaside,

Under stars when nights are warm,

Home is where you wander-

Where your truth and essence are born.

There was a constant stream of viewers over the six days and the kids were lapping up the chance to create a  mini mural.

Artists accommodation was great!  (Tasmazia & The Village of Lower Crackpot).


The competition so so tight the judges came to a tied decision. Congratulations to Marc Spijkerbosch & Julian Bale who were awarded first place.

Thanks to all the artists, volunteers, local community, sponsors and supporters. To view all artists murals and progress pics click here.
