Video: Phibs and co for Ozanam – Sydney

If you live in or around Sydney’s Inner West, then you will have probably seen the new Ozanam building being painted by some of the country’s finest street AND graffiti artists, all of which were brought on board by one of the city’s legends, Phibs.

Artists involved were Phibs, Numskull, Linz, Beastman, Thomas Jackson, Birdhat, Ears, Max Berry, Mystery, Scram, Sytak, Brick, Amuse, Perso, Pudl, Skier, Peak, and Pesm. (I think that’s it, but there may have been additions recently). Stay tuned for a full set of photos. In the meantime, check out this great video.
