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.
