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. All photos are his own unless otherwise specified.

David Hooke, AKA Meggs, is back living in Melbourne and recently painted this 25 metre mural on the outskirts of the city in Croydon.

b-sm = 300x250; sm > none;

“I grew up in Croydon North so it feels good to now have a large public piece in the area I spent my childhood. This mural is inspired by the beauty and significance of our local environment and landscape. From red earth, fire and flora to wind, water and flood nature continues to replenish if we allow it the time and care to do so.
.
I recently learned that the City of Maroondah’s name, original lands of the Wurundjeri people, is derived from the first Australian words meaning ‘throwing’ & ‘leaves’. This original meaning fit naturally with my vision for the mural and inspired the flow of native Eucalypts and feathers that follow the natural elements throughout the artwork in an upwards direction representing positive change and re-growth.”
