His unique style is instantly recognised in exhibitions and walls around the world. His body of work includes the OBEY GIANT art project, the Barak Obama HOPE campaign, and this year’s ubiquitous ‘We The

VR Snapshots – Immersive Media Lounge – State Library of Victoria

A few weeks ago Invurt was involved in creating the Immersive Media Lounge at Melbourne Knowledge Week 2017, hosted at the State Library of Victoria. The event was an awesome success with hundreds of people coming through the doors across the week, and some very cool artwork being created. I was pretty impressed with what the artists came up with (Senekt, Facter, Conrad Bizjak and RASHEE).  Invurt and Phoria had the HTC Vive rocking Google Tilt Brush against a Green screen – Hollywood Styles, resulting in  a mixed reality display combining what the artist was doing against the world they

And also one of the most innovative community development initiatives on a national level. This year it hosted 35 internationally acclaimed artists from Australia and around the world, and attracted thousands of curious participants and observers from near and far. It’s changing the face of Benalla, one wall at a time. And changing a whole community’s identity, while it’s at it. ” Man, it’d be great to

Event – Wall To Wall Festival – Benalla – Juddy Roller

This years Wall To Wall Festival looks to be one epic weekend of incredible art filled walls and super events, I myself will be conducting street art tours for the festival I can’t wait to share my knowledge and passion of street art with the locals see you all there.


Australia’s most important annual street art event, Wall to Wall Festival will once again take over the small township of Benalla in North-East Victoria. Bringing together 27 international and local artists to create new murals across three days, bringing the total number of murals in the town to 47. Wall to Wall is the most significant celebration of street art in the country and it’s easy to see why.

Backed by Creative Victoria, Festivals Australia and the Benalla Council, the 2017 outdoor program will be complemented by a career survey of two of Australia’s most internationally acclaimed street artists, Adnate and Rone at the Benalla Art Gallery along with the Wall to Wall Workshop Series, a Twilight Painting Program, street art tours and the ever-popular Paint by Numbers community mural.

Bringing together two of Australia’s most recognised artists, the Adnate and Rone exhibition tells the story of a journey between the artist and collector. Two of Australian street art’s most ardent collectors and community advocates – Sandra Powell and Andrew King – have curated an exhibition of works that tells the history of these two prolific creators. From their rebellious beginnings on the streets of Melbourne to international acclaim from Europe to the USA, Adnate and Rone will showcase the most significant collection of the artists’ work to date. To coincide with the exhibition, Adnate will take over the interior of the Goorambat Uniting Church to create an artwork of biblical proportions.
“We are honoured to have Sandra Powell and Andrew King curate a series of works spanning 15 years of two of Australia’s most prolific and acclaimed street artists Rone and Adnate. To be integrating the Benalla Art Gallery, one of Australia’s most idyllic regional art galleries, into Wall to Wall Festival symbolises how far the event has come”

The 2017 Wall to Wall public program of workshops, tours and community events is the largest in its history. This year, the festival’s community program will be delivered in partnership with Work-Shop – a creative collective that provides short courses in life skills and alternative art designed to “unleash your inner awesome.” From street art workshops to tattoo illustration, the workshop series is a chance for some serious hands-on immersion in the festival’s program.

Famed Melbourne street art tour guide, David Russell will lead this year’s Street Art Tours, leading festival goers through the best of Benalla’s walls, while offering a unique perspective on the city and the artists – something that only someone with David’s rich knowledge can offer.

Back by popular demand, the Paint by Numbers community mural is for people of all ages and skill level. Under the guidance of one of the festival’s talented artists, community members are invited to get their hands dirty and help create a permanent, large-scale mural for the town.

Whether you’re a staunch enthusiast or just plain curious about this ever-evolving art form, the Wall to Wall Festival is your chance to skill up, take in new work, and get up-close and personal with some of Australian street art’s biggest names.
