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

Choqworld

CHOQ_mg_5384

Juddy Roller presents Choqworld – acclaimed Parisian street artist Choq’s first Australian solo show and launch for new video by Selina Miles.

The solo exhibition is based on the life and times, both good and bad of Choq’s world. Growing up in the gritty outer suburbs of the world’s most “romantic” city, Choq knows all too well about the dark underbelly of a place known only for it’s romantic scenery and artistic and cultural roots.

It’s this dark underbelly that has led Choq down a path to recreate this world in a way we can all relate to. The work subtlety reflects his inner most personal longings, his dreams and his goals. His weapon of choice to express such complex emotions? Cartoons of course.

Choq uses his cartoon worlds as a way to connect with a range of people; both young and old, rich and poor. This is the inherent beauty in Choq’s work. He crosses socio-economic values and ties in an attempt to bring people together as a whole and forget about the superficial differences. His work explores complex themes and attempts to offer a satirical critique of the modern world.

For one weekend only, Choqworld is set and the main exhibition space is being completely transformed. Don’t miss this one.

Choqworld opens March 20 March at Juddy Roller Studios and runs until March 22. For sales enquiries or to request a catalog, info@juddyroller.com.au.
