I think Bansky put it best when he said ‘some people become cops because they want to make the world a better place. Some people become vandals because they want to make the world a better looking place.’ Where would we be without our vandals? Looking at boring city walls and buildings all day? No way, they have better ideas. You don’t have to travel around Brisbane to see the work of our graffiti greats though. A few of them have been working on some art that’s a little more law abiding.
To coincide with the National Gallery of Australia’s Space Invaders exhibition at The University of Queensland art Museum, The Edwina Corlette Gallery gives us Super Heroes. The exhibition features recognisable favorites including Anthony Lister, Georg Whelan, Nails, HaHa, Vexta and more, all who have migrated from the streets to canvas in order to make your personal space a better looking place. A great opportunity to invest in some iconic art and support local artists.
