Kirrily Anderson is drawn to the beauty of the natural environment and the human form. Inspired by sentiment, beauty, childhood and the environment, her work is an exploration of human emotion in its most subtle form.
Her creative practice is an eclectic meld of visual art, illustration, street art & graphic design. Having recently moved from the busy midst of Melbourne’s creative scene in Collingwood to the still beauty of Chiltern in Victoria's North East, the tone of her artwork has come full circle to reveal the quiet and reflective nature of her upbringing in rural NSW.
Practicing under the name I & the Others, Kirrily immersed herself in the street art scene in Melbourne between 2010 - 2013. During this time she curated and co-curated a number of exhibitions and street art based events, including Art de la Roo, (Toronto, Canada, 2012) and Street Advent (2011 & 2012).
Kirrily has exhibited and curated both in Australia and overseas. In 2015 she was shortlisted for the Marie Ellis OAM prize for drawing and awarded the Abbostford Convent’s Spiritous Award. She has facilitated street art workshops in Melbourne and rural Victoria.
Kirrily opened Paper Trail Studio in Chiltern in March 2017. The studio showcases selected works and functions as a space for creative workshops.
Her public work can be found in a number of locations across the North East of Victoria - from Thousand Pound wine bar in Rutherglen, to Bennett’s Lane in Wodonga and Beechworth’s skate park, her projects often involve the community, small businesses and young people.
