(Flashback!) PAINT! – Ruffian Gallery, Footscray thanks to Melbourne Arts Club

5th September 2014

One of my favourite all time art memories was getting the opportunity to paint and paste up this crazy mural at Ruffian Gallery, Footscray. Thanks to Melbourne Arts Club, my brother CTRL V and I were invited to take part in this rad painting sesh in the lead up to the PAINT exhibition opening night. The whole painting saga was captured on camera by the amazingly talented crew at Platform Eight.  I remember on the night of painting, both CTRL V and I felt a bit daunted by the camera crew…and had absolutely no plan of what we were going to paint alongside the previously created paste up of Mr Sloth. Still we carried on, recalling our motto, “It is better to risk and stuff up than risk nothing, and go home with a full bottle of glue.” This mural was created straight from the heart, purely imaginative, haphazard and with an element of stage fright. I will cherish this film of creating alongside CTRL V during our paste up era. I hope you enjoy it too!
