Mysterious Al is a street artist from London, UK. His current solo show ‘How to Live Forever’ is an introspective on leaving a lasting impression on this Earth. On living forever:
In Australia, evidence of ancient tribes are all around. ‘How to Live Forever’ documents a secret tribe that co-exists in Melbourne, roaming the city under the cover of night. In this tribe the women are the warriors, they’re where it’s at.
“How do you live forever? Through the people you meet and the things you leave behind; be it in museums or on city walls”.
The work continues Al’s exploration of tribal masks and paintings, this time using contemporary colours and methods. It questions time-travel, self-reflection and human mortality; all in Al’s playful yet satirical style.
“Making this body of work has been like falling in love. Painting walls is fun, but leaving a lasting positive impression on the Earth is the ultimate up”
