creditp1xels-3e7a6032

Leading Australian mural artists Rone, Adnate, Sofles, Dvate, Cam Scale, Heesco and Jason Parker have teamed up to create an epic, large-scale mural on the streets of Fitzroy.

Curated by Juddy Roller, and supported by Yarra City Council and the Department of Justice, the project showcases the talents of the seven well known, and highly respected, artists.

Each artist, all unique in style, has been given creative license to paint a dedicated section of the wall, with the only limitation being that all artworks will be portrait based.

Says artist Adnate of the upcoming project, “I’m stoked to be a part of it, I respect all of these artist so much so to have the opportunity to collaborate with them on such an awesome project is really cool. Add to that, I’ve always thought a mural on this wall would be great so the fact the Juddy Roller has managed to secure it for us is really impressive.”

The wall is located on the Rear of Fry’s Storage on Cecil Street, Fitzroy.

Jason Parker – ‘Room with a View’

I close the door behind me, lock it, then deadlock it. I’ve already put out the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign. The
room is large, empty, save for a small desk that sits in the center. I make my way to the window to take in the view, I am greeted by a familiar sight, the scene below born 27 years ago, changing daily. Untarnished views that stretch to a horizon that is ever growing, structures fall, new ones erected, I take it all in. On top of the desk sits a small stack of paper, a pencil and a modest lamp. I flick the switch on the lamp basking the desk in a warm yellow glow, the walls catch a small amount of light, walls not built with steel and concrete but with experiences, emotions, and insight. I take one last look at the view, take a seat and draw.

Opening at Melbourne’s ‘Off the Kerb Gallery’ on 18 March from 6pm and on show until 31 March 2016
