Melbourne artist Shawn Lu is an artist who creates scenes inspired by modern folk-lore and urban legend. Practicing mainly as an illustrator, his detailed pen and ink drawings are reminiscent of etchings by Gustave Dore. He has created his most recent mural, ‘The Biker,’ outside Juddy Roller Studios in Melbourne, Australia. Completed over three days using house-hold acrylic paint and a brush, allowed for the level of detail indicative of Shawn’s drawing style.
The video gives an insight into Shawn’s process and development of the mural, beginning with his sketch and concluding with a time-lapse of the mural being completed.
‘The Biker’ resonates the feeling of wanting to escape to nowhere in particular, and having gotten there enjoying a quiet reflective moment.
