AnyForty & T-world presents… MEGGS

4th April 2012 | Tags: , ,

Meggs is next artist to be announced in The Australian Invasion Series – you really shouldn’t be surprised.

Who is Meggs, to those who don’t know you? I’m an artist and designer who’s come from a graffiti and street art background in Melbourne. I started out making basic stencils in 2003, and developed my skills in freehand (character) based aerosol works, postering, and murals, to the point where I started exhibiting more ‘developed’ work in galleries and publications.

What do you think of the Australian illustration scene compared to the rest of the world? I think Australia has a really strong street art scene, especially Melbourne and increasingly in Sydney. The quality of work is on par with the rest of the world, and the more traditional ‘graffiti’ scenes here seem to be experiencing a resurgence.

How would you describe your style? My style is a mixture of techniques now, including comic-style drawing, stencils, paper/poster/collage work, freehand aerosol techniques and abstract expressionism. When I put work on the street it’s either posters or freehand aerosol murals, and my gallery work is a more refined composition using these techniques.

What do you know about the UK in general? I have only been in and around London, so what I know first-hand is the hustle, energy, grime and beauty of such a large, historic city.

Have you ever been to the UK and tell us about a memorable experience you had? I’ve been to London twice now, once in 2008, and then last year (2011) for a show. The first time was more of an initial holiday visit and going on a few low-key painting missions with guys like Tizer. Last year was more business. So many memorable experiences, but a good one recently was painting a rad abando in South London with my two Australian bros Lister and Kid Zoom last year.

Outpost Project: Art from the streets

So today see’s the private opening of a highly ambitious exhibition taking place just off shore of Sydney, Australia on the gritty industrial space of Cockatoo Island called Outpost Project.

The Outpost Project, features over 150 international artists and a variety of different exhibitions and events. We’re taking part in one section of the island called NEXT that you can read a little bit about below, but that’s just one aspect of a highly sick in the face show.

Some of the highlights for us are art from Meggs and his Everfresh crew, balloon art from Anthony Lister and a massive instalation from Kid Zoom. Looks like a amazing event, take a peak at some pics from the final set up and stay tuned for some more news and finished pics in the next few days!

Pics straight jacked up from the Cockatoo Island facebook event page. Hit it up here to see loads more.

And check out the tv advert for the show. Looks like the most exciting “street art” event we’ve seen outside of the States for a long, long, time.
