‘Do as I say, not as I do’ – the unfairest of instructions, often heard as a child and sometimes also as an adult, forms the basis of this work – a large scale paste up installed in South Yarra for Uncommon Places II as part of Melbourne Fringe 2015.

ART DE LA ROO
Art de la Roo was an outdoor exhibition that aimed to expose the exploding street art scene of Australia, to Toronto, Canada through long distance pasting.
TORONTO, SEPTEMBER 2012
Curated by myself and Christy Shapley, paste-ups were created by 26 Australian artists, sent from Melbourne to Toronto and then put up in surprise locations around the city. The work was installed by myself and co-curator Chisty Shapley and our street team to coincide with the massive contemporary art event Nuit Blanche.
The exhibition opened with a bicycle tour on September 28, 2012.
MISCELLANEOUS PASTE UPS
VARIOUS LOCATIONS 2010 – 2014
I began putting my work on the street (and private property too) as paste ups around 2010, a few remain today!
VARIOUS LOCATIONS 2011 – 2014
Paper Crown was a piece created for an exhibition in Sydney, that then became a versatile paste up. I used this work to play with colours, pattern and collage. Pasted mostly in Melbourne, but can also be found in Montreal.
PAPER CUT PASTE UPS
VARIOUS LOCATIONS 2010 – 2012
Strongly influenced by street artists Swoon and Miso, I dabbled in paper cut art when I first started exploring street art. I loved the attention to detail it required and how the paste ups deteriorated over time.
