VEXTA, HA HA and BLEK LE RAT in Melbourne

In December 2009, Xavier Blek le Rat visited Melbourne, during which he spent time stencilling in Melbourne’s Hosier Lane with gallery artists VEXTA and REGAN HAHA TAMANUI :

Long considered the godfather of stencil graffiti art, Xavier Blek le Rat studied painting and architecture in Paris.  Since 1981 he has had a great influence on today’s graffiti art movement, his main motivation being social consciousness and the desire to bring art to the people. British graffiti artist Banksy has acknowledged Blek’s influence saying “every time I think I’ve painted something slightly original, I find out that Blek Le Rat has done it as well, only twenty years earlier.”

REGAN HAHA TAMANUI will be in a solo exhibition at ECG in July 2010.  Express you interest in HaHa’s work here.

VEXTA will be in a solo exhibition at ECG in November 2010.  Express your interest in Vexta’s work here.
