James Reka – Untold

by

James Reka is a young contemporary Australian artist based in Berlin, Germany. His origins lie in the alleyways and train lines of Melbourne’s inner-suburbs where he spent over a decade refining his now-emblematic aesthetic. His character work has come to represent the beginnings of a new style of street art: clean, unique and not necessarily on the street (much to his mother’s joy).  With an amazing show opening tomorrow night (6 June) at Backwoods Gallery, Reka took time to talk to Damo.
