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