Recently, Melbourne-based painter Cam Scale completed a huge mural in Geelong, 75km south-west of Melbourne, Australia. Whist he painted, the entire process was documented by issue 32 featured instgrammer @p1xels. Cam chats with us, while @p1xels generously provided some dope images.

Can you talk us through your mural and the inspiration behind it?

The piece is titled ‘To The Unknown Mariner’ and is dedicated to sea farers past and present. It’s painted on the side of the old Port Authority Building in Geelong and looks out over the bay.
