Love street art; hate the tagging. Craig Cole presents fine art paintings and drawings offering deep respect for the graff writers and artists he has depicted. His works demonstrate unparalleled skill in capturing the places and spaces these artists work, their magic, and offers new perspectives into these unseen sites across Melbourne.
Cole has a unique ability to bridge graffiti and urban art with fine art. His years in the western suburbs of Melbourne as a graff kid has given him insight into this secluded and secretive world. His technical ability combined with unusual choices of location and composition gives him the ability to convey this world in a sensitive and almost nostalgic way.
