Before Adnate started painting incrdible realistic portraits all over the globe, he was a young graffiti writer in Melbourne following the works being created for Meeting Of Styles, an European aerosol festival that started in 2002.

The event was recently held in Melbourne for the first time with over 200 artists painting around the city and in the lanes. As the festival is all about mixing it up with other artists, Adnate chose to  collaborate with a Sydney writer Swaze.

Dean Sunshine has lived in Melbourne Australia all his life and experienced first hand the graffiti and aerosol art movement as it began there in the 80's. For the last decade he has keenly followed the development of the local street art scene and photographed and documented thousands of works for no other reason than appreciation of the art form. Putting his interest online Dean started his blog called Land of Sunshine in 2010 which led to the self-publication of two books – Land of Sunshine (2012) and Street Art Now (2014) His blog is regularly updated with the latest street art and graffiti in Melbourne and also takes photos when travelling the world. Aside from documentation, he also offers the exterior walls of his warehouse in Brunswick, Melbourne for local and international artists to regularly paint and facilitates large and small street art commissions and projects.
