In The Studio – Resio

Resio Street Art

Meet Resio. He is a promising street artist making his way through the Melbourne streets and graffiti scene one piece at a time. He’s a youthful dude with what seems like decades of experience and Juddy Roller has had the pleasure of working with him on a handful of projects now. This happy-go-lucky kinda guy is already painting with all the big names and not only is he keeping up, but also pushing through and making a name for himself.

His incredible talent is displayed through his incorporation of complex compositions, realistic imagery and masterful graf pieces. Weaving these all together in a one man collaboration piece after piece sets Resio apart from what you’d expect to achieve with multiple artists.

He is mostly known for a warped portrait style on the streets, which is illustrative and playful. His artwork offers a unique style which is produced from a very hands-on approached process well before the paint hits the canvas. We caught up over a few beers to chat about what he has been up to.
