Hoods 2016 Web Res

Created and curated by Fuel Magazine’s creative director Luke Ray, ‘Hoods’ brings together ten Australian artists under one roof. In late 2015, Fuel Magazine® started production of this exciting project. GM Holden were approached to be involved, their contribution being to provide ten brand new bonnets, each to be used as a canvas upon which an artist would create a piece of art with no given brief. Ten street, graphic and automotive artists from Sydney and Melbourne were hand picked and the bonnets delivered to each studio. A few months later, the bonnets came back as works of art and it’s these pieces that will collectively be on display at Suus.
