Fitzroy's street art and graffiti management studio, Juddy Roller, has brought six of Melbourne's most respected artists together for a brand new project.
The most northern wall of Fry's Storage on Cecil Street, Fitzroy, now displays the handiwork of Rone (who recently rounded off his own solo exhibition at Fitzroy's Star Lyric Theatre building) and Adnate, who recently took a swipe at the entirely unauthorised Banksy exhibition at Federation Square. Street artists Sofles, Dvate, Cam Scale and Jason Parker have also contributed to the mural. Although quite distinct in their style, all artists were given the same brief: to create a portrait based image. It's interesting to see how each artist has interpreted this brief, considering their difference in style.
The display has the backing of Yarra City Council and the Department of Justice, with curation from the folks at Juddy Roller. Painting began on Wednesday November 2 and finished up on Tuesday November 8.
