In 2010 (we) the Everfresh Studio produced our 256 page book to commerorate a decade as a street-art crew, artist collective & studio hub in Melbourne (Australia). I was the lead Art Director & Designer on the book, which documents the artwork and behind the scenes life our ten years together working out of a warehouse in the back-streets of Collingwood. For me personally this book was a momento of many crazy experiences as crew as much as it is a photo album of the work we put down in both the studio & the streets, working with some of the most talented artists I have ever met and people I am proud to call friends! A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into creating this, and its a landmark, a time-capsule and a keepsake I’m proud to claim ownership to!
“Illustrated with striking and candid photography, this collection provides a rare and exclusive insight into Everfresh Studio’s street art culture. Showcasing the artwork of some of Australia’s best-known street artists, the process is laid out, from initial sketch to finished product. Written by the artists themselves, this account also reveals the tools, materials, and adrenaline-fuelled nature of the most public of art forms—graffiti.”
To celebrate the books release we staged huge launch parties in Melbourne & Sydney, and then as a 10-deep posse, flew ourselves top Tokyo to launch it there, undergo several police arrests, much shenanigans and a lot of good memories.
