The collection includes such street-art luminaries as Marcsta (Marc de Jong), Dlux (James Dodd), HaHa (Regan Tamanui) and Vexta (Yvette Bacina). Their designs will be the focus of an exhibition at the NGA late next year. The 300 stencil designs by more than 30 artists explore the explosion in Melbourne's street art between the 1990s and 2004, before Melbourne City Council undertook a widespread graffiti clean-up operation before last year's Commonwealth Games.
