Opening: Spice, Teazer, Dream & Water

Spice Teazer Dream Water
MAY’S is excited to present SPICE, TEAZER, DREAM and WATER this Friday, 29th JANUARY 2010.

Welcoming back four of Sydney’s foremost graffiti artists for a collaboration that is set to be one of the freshest works you’ve seen in a long time. Each of the artists brings with them their own experience and style to the collaboration.

Spice has been recognised as a notable presence in Australian hip hop culture since the early 1980s. ‘Most of my work expresses my feelings, whether it’s via my colour coordination, or a few simple words, usually a line of lyrics from a song, written next to my piece.’ – Spice, 2009

Teazer is one of Sydney’s most prolific graffiti artists, known for his large murals which incorporate Manga characters and pop imagery.

Dream One is an infamous writer who, over the past two and a half decades, has provided a visual kaleidoscope on trains and walls throughout Sydney.

Water is back from Berlin and brings his style reminiscent of classic New York graffiti, with fresh colour schemes, to the streets of Sydney.

Darlinghurst Car Wash

Alot of art in Darlinghurst is hidden away in the back alleys and streets, which often makes it enjoyable to walk around and discover.

One spot which stands out for us is the Darlinghurst car wash on Victoria st/Darlinghurst rd. Now also the home of a massive JumboZap text poster.

The wall was painted in 2004 by Numskull, Teazer, Minigraff, Vexta, Zap, Delpar and Imago.

James’ intense comic book noir-style images have appeared in magazines such as Nylon, Complex, Acclaim, and Empty. As well as in collaborations with Adidas, Diesel, MTV, Pepsi, Mambo and The Deftones. See more of James’ work at www.jiratpatradoon.com.
