Sydney is fast becoming the new city of laneways; snaking streets that were once avoided and ignored, now, celebrated as the city’s new and evolving canvasses. Art is being taken to the people, inviting them to twist and turn down corners and alleys that have been transformed into the galleries for artists of now. This October long weekend, two young artists, at the forefront of this movement are showcasing not only their works, but holding a workshop where they will inspire others to do the same. Young Blood Exhibition opens Friday 4th October 2013. 6pm ‘til 8:30pm. Street Art Workshop Sunday 6th October 2013.
Often painting on a large scale his work revolves around a more realistic style with thought provoking concepts. The Dirt’s murals can be seen throughout Sydney and was recently involved in the City of Sydney’s 75 meter long mural along Foley Street in Darlinghurst.”
His work is a psychotic mix of pop cultural references/hallucinations, thin black lines, vibrant colour, and adrenalin fuelled late nights. If you haven’t seen his work then you must be living under a rock.
Although both artists have been classically trained they approach their genre with varied and distinctive style.
