“Over the last few months I’ve been working in secret on a series of works in an old paper mill. This was a dream project, a giant abandoned site where I could paint whatever I saw fit.
These latest works at Yarra Bend have been completed inside the iconic brutalist brick buildings of the old Alphington Paper Mills on Heidelberg Road.” – RONE

Check out RONE’s video and enjoy the gallery.

Who Is Baby Guerrilla?

Baby Guerrilla is a talented Melbourne artist and a graduate from the Victorian College of the Arts. She grew up around Braybrook and Sunshine near Melbourne, Australia and her work has been exhibited widely, including the National Gallery of NSW.

On her website she shared some words regarding her work:
“My mission is to liberate art from just the gallery or the picture frame and make it accessible to everyone. I love the idea of setting art free, setting our souls free to dream and imagine and go floating across a wall.

I seek to create worlds, meaning out of mayhem and dreams from despair.

After graduating from VCA I was all set for life as a painter.  Street art began as a hobby on the side that seemed to take on a life of its own then grew and grew.  Now I see the two mediums as complimentary.  The possibilities for my drawings are infinite.

I see drawing on walls as a beautiful challenge… the challenge of space and constraints. Defying gravity, dancing with gravity.  The love affair continues…”
