Vexta – Mexico City Video

by

Late in 2013, VEXTA headed to Mexico City as part of her ongoing, global Neon Tour adventure. Her original travels there in 2012 had left her with an insatiable desire to return to paint a multi story piece in the centre of the creative neighbourhood of Mexico city, Condesa / Roma. We would like to share with you how this homage to the mesmerizing shapes and intense energy of the city and its’ people unfolded.

Special thanks to Converse & GraffitiWorld.tv, who supported the project and to Monica LoCascio, Bailey Rebecca Roberts, Bronsoon and all the wonderful people of Mexico City.

Mike Watt – Interview

by

Mike Watt is an Australian artist and illustrator based in Sydney, NSW. VNAussie, Damian Wardle, recently caught up with him and got him to spill the peas about all things Mike…

DW: Who is Mike Watt? How do you describe your style?

MW: I’m an artist and illustrator from Sydney. I’ve been drawing and painting walls for quite a while but I was a bit of a hermit until a year or 2 ago. I’d say my style is kind of gritty and ugly, normally showing characters with lots of characters that have lived an interesting life.
