Facter is an artist, editor and writer. His love of technology and its impact on our world is manifest in the unique linework within the creatures he creates. His work often depict a fantastically surreal realm called The Known, a futuristic look at our culture based on his interests in Singularity theory, technology, science fiction, tribal and traditional artwork and evolutionary biology – which just means that he enjoys drawing robots and other weird cyberorganic entities.
Outside of his day job as a Technology Analyst, Facter is also the cheif writer and editor the Invurt.com webzine, which provides an informative and up to date source of exhibition and event news from across Australia, by providing articles and interviews on artists and creatives both living, and displaying work, across the country. He has also recently taken on the role of Editor for the newly minted Damn It! Magazine, a quarterly international print magazine.
Facter regularly participates in live art events, provides street art related consultation and advocacy and also co-ordinates the dissemination of whatever walls and spaces he can find to his friends, fellow, and visiting artists. He has also recently teamed up with Jack Douglas, Unwell Bunny, Heesco, Conrad Bizjak, Pierre Lloga, Mysterious Al and Hancock to form We Spray Weekends (WSW), a fun filled crew of unique individuals who love doing what they do best – painting walls on their days off.
Facter has exhibited at galleries such as Artboy Gallery, For Walls, Surface Pop, Rancho Notorious, Brunswick Street Gallery, Egg Gallery, These Walls Don’t Lie and At Large Gallery.
“Facter, aka Fletcher Andersen, is a stalwart of the Melbourne art world. The catalyst and energy behind a great deal of beautified buildings in and around our fair city, the editor of Invurt and an accomplished artist in his own right. Facter lends his segmented, cellular style across any shape, body or form he chooses with striking effect. The result: graphic and engaging works that announce their presence on every wall they find themselves on. " James Watkins – T-Squat Magazine
