Cam Scale – ‘State of Mind’

Growing up in Sydney and influenced by the trackside graffiti throughout the suburbs, Melbourne-based multidisciplinary artist Cam Scale was motivated to create his own art. “I grew up drawing. My parents encouraged me and tried sending me to art classes when I was young, but it wasn’t until I hit high school I showed a real interest. A close mate and I used to hang out creating mischief, mainly blowing stuff up, until we discovered graffiti,” says Scale. “After that, I was hooked. I tried to maintain some form of grades at school, but much of the time was spent out until the early hours, and then battling to stay awake in class!”

After an attempt at graphic design, Scale realised that he wanted to be drawing the pictures, not moving them around. A ten-month graffiti binge around Europe followed, and upon return Scale moved to Melbourne and began an illustration course. As an artist, Scale admits, “Melbourne just had all the opportunities and a fresh start.” The rest as they say, is history.

Considered a renowned graffiti writer and large-scale photorealist, Scale has now called Melbourne home for almost a decade. His first major solo show, ‘State Of Mind’ explores the viewer’s attitude towards graffiti, street and urban art and delves into the previously unexplored parallels of the urban and contemporary art world.

Crowdfunding launch for ‘Happyland’

Melbourne artist Kaff-eine and her cheeseagle team are creating an onsite art installation as much-needed shelter with two slum communities in Manila, Philippines. A crowdfunding campaign to support the Happyland project launches with a group exhibition of leading street artists on 1 April.

Launch Invite - For Supporters

Kaff-eine, whose artwork is found on the street, in private homes and in galleries, is reuniting with the Baseco and Happyland dumpsite communities and working with an international team to create ‘art tarpaulins’, which feature portraits of community personalities, and which will be used as much-needed shelter.

‘The collaborators who worked with me for my last project, Phoenix, made it clear that suitable housing is really important to them. I have so much admiration for the colourful, proud and resilient personalities in the communities; why not combine both?’, says Kaff-eine.
