Featured artists 

George Rose 

George Rose is a Melbourne-based female artist best known for her large-scale murals and vibrant use of colour. After an initial education in design at University of Canberra, she completed her formal training at ANU School of Art before pursuing muralism supported by a studio practice. 

Adnate 

Matt Adnate seeks to capture the essence of humanity in his artwork, using portraiture to convey the depth and beauty of the human spirit on walls and in exhibitions. At the core of Adnate’s art is a profound belief in the transformative power of art to bring about positive social change.  

Smug 

Originally from Australia, Smug has called Scotland home for over 20 years. An internationally renowned artist known for his realistic large-scale mural installations Smug takes inspiration from people and nature, exploring the harmony in the relationship between the two. 

Blo 

Claude BLO RICCI’s current practice displays an acute sense of awareness in moving from an urban landscape to gallery spaces--not just a shift in medium, but one of context, audience and exposure. What for many is a difficult space to negotiate, it is within this quiet rift that BLO’s paintings breathe. He uses creativity as a device to question, invert or pervert aspects of daily life. 

Fred Battle (Zoer) 

Frédéric Battle, also known as Zoer,  was born in 1985 in Tours, France. He lives and works in the french Alpes Maritimes. Battle graduated from the Strate school in product design: the study of the object has determined his pictorial research. 

Justine McAllister 

Justine McAllister is a Naarm/Melbourne-based artist. She creates playful and theatrical motifs, pairing objects and symbols with abstracted elements to delve into themes of human connection and acceptance. Her interest lies not in creating narrative but in how manipulating collage, composition, and colour can stir emotions within the viewer. 

Filthy Ratbag 

Celeste Mountjoy, also known as FILTHYRATBAG, is a Melbourne- based artist, author, and cultural provocateur. Her captivating  work delves fearlessly into the depths of the human experience, exploring themes such as anxiety, feminism, addiction, body  image, relationships, grief, and the relentless pressures of societal expectations. 

Tommy Day  

Tom Day, also known as Jirri Jirri Art is a Gunditjmara, Yorta Yorta and Wemba Wemba man and multi-disciplined artist based in Shepparton, Victoria. Capturing the essence of country is everything, vividly etched in his memories as a young Gunditjmara, Yorta Yorta, and Wemba Wemba man. Its intricate tapestry unfolds as the seasons dance on the precipice of change, leaving an indelible mark on the land while its essence remains constant. 

Drez 

Drez is an artist who shifts the perception of public space through his exploration of colour. Using urban structures as his canvas, Drez responds with colour gradients, following the form of the locations, subverting these structures to create immersive spaces of colour. He creates work that extends from paintings, to architecturally scaled murals and projection installations. 

Kyle Brightside 

Mordi Village local, Kyle Brightside is a self-taught artist and illustrator. With a bright, bold and fun aesthetic born from the Australian and Californian surf and skate culture, Kyle specialises in painting large scale murals, illustrations and designs.
