Euroa Skate Park – Kitt Bennett

The town of Euroa has teamed up with The Evolve Youth Committee and played host to Juddy Roller and artist Kitt Bennett for a double mural install on the towns skate park and an adjacent music hall over the busy weekend. Kitt worked his magic on the skatepark, giving the aged park a fresh new look as well as hosting a live paint by numbers workshop for the public to get involved.

The install took place during the ‘Show and Shine’ car show exhibition, which is one of the towns most celebrated annual events. The weekend was definitely a busy one, and the town of Euroa surely made the most of it, including the mural work, face painting, food vendors, DJ’s on top of the impressive display of cars over the weekend.

The Paint By Numbers workshop was an incredible success, bringing together the community of all ages to contribute to their new mural, and everyone here at Juddy Roller are so happy we’re able to help contribute to these amazing community events. A massive thanks to our paint sponsor Taubman for their generous support, as always.

Igniting Kimba – Cam Scale

Silo Art has now spread beyond the Victorian Silo Art Trail, as the small town of Kimba known as the halfway point across Australia has decided to join in on the artistic fun. Cam Scale is the responsible artist, whose name is most certainly appropriate for the job along with his extensive experience with large mural work.

The mural stretches over five and a half Silos, standing proudly at over 60m wide and 25m high, making it one of the biggest silo’s to date, and one of the biggest canvases in the world. An impressive 200L of Taubmans paint were used in the process, covering the overly-large surface area.

The 3-week transformation slowly but surely brought the oversized canvas to life, depicting a young local girl playing in the wheat field, overlooked by the magnificent purple sunset and endless wheat fields which blend into the real thing, creating a never-ending piece of art. These primary themes all being recommendations about what best reflects Kimba and the region after countless community engagements with the township.

The town of Kimba, as well as the surrounding communities, are all extremely excited and proud with their new artwork, really looking forward to the tourism and economic boost it will bring. The silo art for the town is part of a collective project named ‘Igniting Kimba‘, which is utilising art and culture to promote the township, re-igniting its fuse with locals and travellers alike, making it a must stop for anyone passing through the region.

Thanks to Robert Lang for the brilliant photos.

Fargo And Co – Rosie Woods

Need an excuse to see some amazing art, while sipping a delicious beverage? Of course you don’t, but, Luckily for you, Rosie Woods has added her finishing touches to her huge mural within the recently opened cocktail bar Fargo And Co. The large scale mural covers a huge surface on the beautiful upstairs area, adding to the contemporary flair of this impressive venue.

Rosie shows incredible skill and tidy attention to detail with this red lipped beauty, which greets you on the first floor as you exit the stairs. This project was incredibly fun to be apart of, and we love working with the locals, new or old!

If you wish to see the mural in person (or just want an excuse to have a drink), the bank-themed bar set inside the heritage Swan Street State Bank is located at 216 Swan Street in Richmond.

The Pillars Project – Adnate

Queensland Rail’s ‘Pillars Project‘ is quickly becoming an iconic landmark for Brisbane City and is now existing as arguably the most important street art project the city has seen to date.

Adnate recently contributed this stunning mural with the intentions of engaging his audience of the highly populated urban area in a visual dialogue with Australia’s true ‘First People’. The desire behind painting an indigenous portrait is to connect with each individual viewer on a deeper level, even if it’s just for a moment, to provoke emotion, thought, conversation, and bring about awareness of the issues facing Aboriginal people today.

This area of South Brisbane is traditional known as being a ‘Meeting Point’ and a ‘Place of Pathways’ for indigenous Australians for thousands of years and this piece by Adnate has paid homage to this- bringing considerable positive attention to the area as well as the Aboriginal community through the use of street art.

This unique pillar sits a short walk away from Queensland Rail’s existing pillars, linking a trail of historical significance and visual beauty. The pillar is the last before the Rail Bridge launches over the Brisbane River exposing it to river traffic, Coronation Drive and one of the busiest walk and cycle ways in Brisbane.

For more info on the Pillars Project, you can visit their website which is linked above, or even better head there in person if you’re in the local area of Brisbane. Thanks to Jade Hood for the images.

Lascelles Silo Art Trail – Rone

The Silo Art Trail is quickly gaining national and international fame as the fifth instalment of the mesmerising trail has been completed; this time by world renowned artist Rone. The Lascelles Silo stands proud at over 30 meters tall within the rural Victorian countryside and to say these are large in scale is definitely an understatement.

Rone’s mural depicts the faces of long term Lascelles couple, Geoff and Merrilyn Horman, whose families have lived and farmed in the Lascelles area for an astounding four generations. Born in the district, the couple married in Lascelles in 1967 and together with their two sons (and their own families) have continued the family traditions of wheat farming, hard yakka and strong community involvement.

Guido In Ashfield

Our mate Guido is breathing new life into the suburb of Ashfield, as part of a strategy to brighten up and bring new life to the community. In January Guido spent ten days during the Sydney heatwave to create the work on Liverpool Rd which was based on a picture of an unnamed local resident by photographer Mitchell Fong.

Guido’s intention for this particular piece was to capture the essence and tell the story of the highly multicultural Ashfield community through the depiction of the people that live there. This was achieved by dedicating a considerable amount of time to research and community engagement, building a strong relationship and delivering a timeless art piece that reflects the true nature and soul of the city.

Sofles – Graffiti Mapped

This year was the first time that White Night Melbourne had worked with street art. Juddy Roller delivered an high-energy art installation titled, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped, a graffiti mapped installation exploring the interconnected nature of street art, technology and the online frontier.

With creative direction by Shaun Hossack, Juddy Roller assembled an A-team of experts in their fields to deliver Sofles – Graffiti Mapped; an interactive mural project combining animation, traditional street art and graffiti with a syncronised audio track.

Sofles is well-regarded as a one of the most cutting-edge street artists in the world, Australian born and internationally renowned. Animator Grant Osborne provided motion design and award-winning New Zealand-native Opiuo produced the musical score. The entire process was documented by acclaimed cinematographer Selina Miles, producer of viral videos such as Infinite and Limitless.

The end result was an epic installation that was a standout component of the entire festival.

Collingwood Power Station

With the support of CitiPower Powercor, The Neighbourhood Justice Centre and City of Yarra, Juddy Roller transformed the Collingwood power substation at the corner of Easey Street and Wellington Street into one of Melbourne’s most iconic pieces of public art.

The graffiti treatment was a collaboration between some of the most sought after and influential contemporary street artists including Rone, Adnate, Mayo, Guido Van Helton and Askew. The monochromatic artwork was carefully curated, balancing community aesthetic and implementing subtle graffiti deterring features. Background and portraits by Askew, script by Mayo and photo realistic portraits by Rone, Guido and Adnate.

The power station is an stand-out example of how street art and graffiti aesthetics can be combined to create a lasting, positive impression on the community whilst having a strong anti graffiti and impact.e9
