Drewfunk - Melbourne

"Melbourne is considered the capital of Australian graffiti art ...  Several alleyways are now declared public art spaces. Melbourne is particularly rich in laneways and the ones off Bourke Street Mall and Collins Street are now popular tourist attractions. These were the subject of a French documentary, Melbourne Ink, which featured the work of several local artists who are now starting to be collected.  One of the most prominent is Drewfunk.
Born in Malaysia, he studied multimedia and design at RMIT University, working as a professional designer before he decided to become a full-time artist. His style reflects his Asian heritage as well as his background as a graffiti artist, although he is now recognised enough to hold exhibitions in serious galleries."
