Last week fourteen artists came together to completely makeover an old food market in the northern suburbs of Melbourne that had been disused and empty for over two years.

Our very own Dean Sunshine organised the project via The Space Agency, taking on board Duke (who recently held the inaugural Meeting of Styles Melbourne) to help convert the site and prepare it for an upcoming activation.

Together they narrowed the list of artists to Heesco, Steve Cross, Ruskidd, Mike Eleven, Putos, Shame, Mayonaize, Duke Style, Ghost, Jack Douglas, Dvate, Sabeth, Bailer and Cam Scale. The building was buffed charcoal, spots were allocated, collaborations we planned, and in just three days, the transformation was complete.
