If you’ve followed Melbourne graffiti or street art over the past few years, chances are you’ve seen some of his work – not up on the walls, but on the web – as one of the cities best documenters of the urban environment around. His videos and photographs have graced many an artists exhibition preview, and his photography can be found, well, all over the fkn place. Not only that, but he’s also an avid music video producer, and has done videos for a number of Australian hiphop artists – check out his most recent showreel …
“Highly regarded melbourne-based photographer and filmaker Carl Allison shoots mainly Graffiti and Hip-hop, but his portfolio goes pretty deep.
A textured grittiness seems to permeate every section of his work, but it often has a few little touches off surrealism – strong highlights and colours whilst maintaining detail in the shadows. Covering some of Australia’s graffiti and hip-hop artist royalty; including aria winners Hilltop Hoods.”
All in all, Carl is a creative dynamo with an amazing eye for urban expression – and now you’ll get a chance to see his work off the web, outside of print, and on the walls at the newly spawned Boywolf Den this Friday night.
