Video: Askew, Rone, Adnate, Mayo & Guido Van Helten paint the Collingwood Power Station – Melbourne

On May 6th 2014 Juddy Roller curated 4 world class portrait artists and one of Melbourne’s most respected graffiti writers to collaborate on a wall stretching over the 100 meter boundary of a large power station in Collingwood, Melbourne. The project took about 4 days to complete and has quickly been regarded as one of the most important collaborative murals in Melbourne

Photos: Wonderwalls Port Adelaide 2015

Firstly, we’d like to thank Joel Moore for directing the biggest Wonderwalls Festival to date, and of course the City of Port Adelaide & Renewal SA for inviting us to bring Wonderwalls to their city, Ironlak, Verb Syndicate and all of our other sponsors, supporters and volunteers. We’d like to also thank the people of Port Adelaide for allowing us into their city to paint both small and (VERY) large murals, which will hopefully stay forever.

Wonderwalls Port Adelaide saw artists from all parts of the world, all over Australia and locally from around the Adelaide region, converge on the Port to decorate and reinvigorate it’s walls. It was an amazing week which hosted an exhibition, an artist panel discussion and of course a series of murals throughout Port Adelaide. Two of which are amongst the biggest murals in the whole country (painted by Etam Cru and Askew One/Elliot Francis Stewart).

Stay tuned for the video recap, however in the meantime click below for the full set of photos. You can also find a great photo recap by photographer Luke Shirlaw, here.
