There’s enough bad news around these days to give you a year-long headache. So, to bleach your eyeballs and your brain from all the nasty stuff, Melbourne street artist Kitt Bennett and award-winning Melbourne street art network Juddy Roller have teamed up to deliver an Australian first in large-scale public art. Because what’s more healing for your eyes than some sick street art?
Combining Bennett's signature large-scale aerial mural work with satellite technology, the world’s largest independently produced work of animated ‘gif-iti’ (a term coined by UK artist ISNA to describe gif-style graffiti) is now slathered all over a colossal 9000 sqm disused waterfront space at Port Melbourne’s Fisherman’s Wharf.
The project took Bennett 30 days to complete; using 700 litres of paint to compose the work which comprises a series of 10 individual 30-metre-long figures which come together to form separate frames of a “moving” animation. You can go check it out at Port Melbourne Wharf now.
