Today about a dozen or so artists hit up the back section of Hosier lane in Melbourne to do a wall in protest of the BP oil spill. There were some of the familiar suspects from the Melbourne scene including HaHa, Civil and Mags(currently melb based) among others. It was a pretty cool day with everyone helping each other out and working well together to link in a whole bunch of diverse styles and create a bit of unity surrounding this important issue.
Below the hive of activity:
I think this piece was my favorite for the day. It kind of sumed up the overall message in a light hearted way. I have a few process shots so you can see it coming together.
This work was also pretty rocking, the text is a little burried in the image but it says ’ Cars suck ’, and hopefully it works on a subliminal level. Bikes rule!
Here are a bunch of other shots of the work getting made.
below are a couple of stencils by HAHA:
The crew were still going when i left for the day…so get on down there if you are in the neighbourhood, as its well worth a look at the wall. Those of you who follow my tees may be familiar with these little images. ;)
We also helped put up a set of the new Breakdown Press Peace Posters. These are also floating about in various places in Melb for free, so keep your eyes peeled as they are well worth a look.
