MEGGS ARTIST BIO

Initially recognized for his multi-layer street stencils and posters, Meggs has become a well respected member of Australia’s street art culture. With a background of graffiti, skateboarding, heavy metal and graphic design Meggs has developed his painting skills from street to galleries with a mixture of aerosol based character work and stencil based expressive canvases. Being a member of the renowned ‘Everfresh’ studio, a unique collective/studio space in Melbourne, has helped Meggs to develop skills in aerosol painting and screen printing and participate in numerous large scale solo and collective Everfresh mural works. He has recently applied his design knowledge to the art direction and production of the Everfresh:Blackbook, a 256 page book, documenting the life and works of the Everfresh artists from 2004-2010.

His street work, although often playful references to 1980’s skate graphics, still has an element of menace and much of his street and gallery work explores the notion of ‘duality’ and search for internal balance. Reflecting on personal experiences, music and social trends, Meggs produces energetic and subverted collages of hybrid characters & pop culture symbology that play with emotion, morals and personal rights in an attempt to balance visual form and intuitive abstraction.

Meggs has spread his street and gallery work as far as London, LA, SF, Tokyo, Paris, Singapore & Hong Kong and has collaborated on commercial projects with high-profile brands such as Stussy, Addict Clothing & Burton Snowboards. His artwork has sold through Artcurial Auctioneers in Paris, Leonard Joel Auctioneers in Sydney and Dreweatts in London. Meggs has recently had works on paper acquired and exhibited by the National Gallery of Australia (NGA) in Canberra and the Victoria & Albert Museum (V&A) in London.
