Video – The Biker – Shawn Lu – Juddy Roller Studios

Melbourne artist Shawn Lu has created his recent mural, The Biker, outside the Juddy Roller studios in Fitzroy, Melbourne.

The Biker was completed over three days using house-hold acrylic paint and a brush, which allowed for the level of detail indicative of Shawn’s drawing style.

The video gives an insight into the artist’s process and development of the mural, beginning with his sketch and concluding with a time-lapse of the mural being completed.

The Biker resonates the feeling of wanting to escape to nowhere in particular, and having gotten there enjoying a quiet reflective moment.

Shawn is an artist who creates scenes inspired by modern folk-lore and urban legend. Practicing mainly as an illustrator, his detailed pen and ink drawings are reminiscent of etchings by Gustave Dore. He works out of the Juddy Roller Studios in Melbourne.

To see more of Shawn’s work, go to his website: shamuslu.com, or find him on Instagram: @shamuslu

Exhibition – Tree Spirits – Ears – Juddy Roller Studios


Opening their doors at 6pm, Friday the 3rd of July, Juddy Roller is proud to present you one of Australia’s most iconic street artists Ears. This is Ears’ first Melbourne solo show in over 4 years.

Tree Spirits is a culmination of work that Ears has produced during a month long residency at Juddy Roller, using the entire gallery space as his studio to produce a mix of large format and smaller mixed media paintings on canvas and wood panel.

Tree Spirits delivers of a series of imagined landscapes that reference mountainous Australian bush lands, accompanied by floating portraits warped by playful line work offset by sparse graphic elements.

In his latest body of work, Ears uses bold colours and geometric lines to create compositions born of a street context yet taken further into ideas of symmetry and form, utilising the tension between the man made world and the natural environment.
Ears is a multi-disciplinary artist working in sound, painting, video and photography. Ears’ work was born in the street and has matured into a successful fine art career, with many solo shows under his belt and multiple curatorial projects.

Juddy Roller, one of Melbourne’s most iconic street art studios is located in a unique warehouse space in one of Fitzroy, Melbourne’s most colourful lane ways.

Juddy Roller is owned and operated by Shaun Hossack and Matt Careri, the founders of Juddy Roller Studios and The Wall to Wall Festival, Benalla.

To hear more about the show and find out about up coming shows at Juddy Roller, check the blog at www.juddyroller.com.au or sign up for our mailing list.


Who: Ears (Daniel O’Toole)

What: Tree Spirits.

When: Friday 3rd July, 2015, from 6pm

Exhibition – Knock – Chimera X – Melbourne

We spotted this rad show coming up this weekend, from the skillful hand of Knock, who has been visiting Melbourne over this gorgeous summer. Looks like a damn fine place to be this Friday night in Fitz!

The Library Gallery presents ‘Chimera X’ a recent body of works from international visual artist KNOCK.

The work delves into the world of creatures past and present spliced into many genus from the perspective of the artists mind.”

I’ve seen a lot of Knocks work around over the past few years, and it really talks to me – I guess because I’m a mass lover of all things alien, surreal and weird – and I love myself some good linework as well, and this mans work has all that in spades, and then some.

Head down this weekend to The Library Gallery to check it all out!
