He's a street artist from Australia. Simple.
Well, kind of simple...
"I started out painting my school books when I was a kid. Like, every single school book and folder was just covered in sketches and drawings. So I guess I never really stopped drawing and painting, I just kept on changing what I was painting on. Almost everything I owned had some sketches or doodles on it and I thought that was awesome.
I began painting on things like walls, and skateboards, and surfboards, and vodka bottles, and eventually brands like McDonalds and Mercedes and Red Bull started to pay attention. So then I got asked to paint sports cars and make sculptures and I even sold one of my works to Dan Aykroyd!
For me it's about making things my own. Either creating something from nothing or taking something and turning it into a unique thing. Something no one else has.
And now I'm doing my own line of denim jackets which is awesome because I can make each one different. I know there are other people out there like me."
