 Bail bali buff fills. With my bro Fuze. ✌✌   Great shot by @p1xels of a wall by @camscale @smartphonedyl and I. Feeling disillusioned in a scene full of the angry and confused. As one artist goes on the tv to complain about the gentrification of street art when it ironically has much to do with the tours and corporate workshops he runs. Other younger bombers fight against this corny takeover by abandoning respect. They idolise false prophets; old weathered hipsters not yet sure how to adult. They cling to their cred like a life vest in a stormy sea of ego. Fighting against a system, while wearing nikes and fitting snugly into a system of their own. Kids take pride in ruining murals indescriminately. No matter the history or age of the artist. I remeber watching puzle, trance, jors etc painting at wall stars in 2002 maybe? We didnt think "what legal bunnies" we didnt ask them to sign our books and pester them. We watched the gods at work. Knowing the painted paths that brought them to that exact moment. We felt privlaged to witness the older generations grace the walls with their skills. If we had a problem with a writer or street artist we told them. If it got physical, no problem. There is a place for capping and slashing; it is for the dogs, rats, toys that jocked the spot. Its not to get a name. There is no longevity in that approach. Watch as you age. The circle gets smaller. They die, they go to jail, they snitch, they get hooked on something, they quit, they get a family, a life, a job only the passionate, desperate, lonely, strange survive. One day you might wake up freindless in a world that owes you nothing. My mistake has been agression instead of understanding and imparting knowledge. What is yours?  Quick piece yesterday next to a massive wall i painted with @ctoart over the last two days. If you havent seen my new film clip check it out...link in bio. ✌  @damovna did an interview with me that is up on the very nearly almost blog at the moment. Photos by @p1xels have a read if you like or dont...the world keeps spinning. Link in bio  If only that glove was red. Shot by @p1xels who takes quite the lovely photo if I do say so myself. #bailer #oldgraffitigronk #quarterlifecrisis #rapandgraffitiwillmakemerichyeah...?
 On Wednesday the 26th there is an exhibition called between inscription and gesture at the islamic museum of Australia 15 Anderson road Thornbury. The exhibition looks at sanscrit, asian/islamic caligraphy and street caligraphy/tags. Featuring some fresh hands from Jerz, Berko, Cane, Muscles, mic, atack, conka, lamb etc.an interesting night with the chance to look at tagging in a new light. ✌  Big one with @ctoart Nost and greco had some fading filled ins on the wall, so i gave them a touch up and a few extra bits. Bit of an akira inspired piece. Giant tentacle arm type thing.  Its crazy what you can paint.... if you put witches hats in front of the wall. If you wake up to hate....best go and paint.  Part of a wall painted with @micporterart on the weekend. Thanks #thecityofBallarat for having us. Big thanks to the 6 young peoples who helped to fill the space with layers of colour, texture, tone and line. I'm really happy with how it turned out. golden landscape made of faces, twisting serpent, forgotton dreams. Hope to be back soon Ballarat ✌  Warming up.
 Massive wall painted with @lukepresto over 3 days. as more of these windowless, apartments go up around melbourne with no thought about design, longevity or much other than profit....the contrast between those financing the projects, the schmucks buying them and the people living on the street seems more apparent than ever. So the word Contrast seemed an apropriate vehicle to convey many auch themes without getting too political. It also refers to the vast differences in technique; presto the anal retentive, perfectionist always neat and clean....me...well controlled chaos i guess. Or chaotic controll. The manifestation of malicious mental melodrama. I didnt use any spray paint on this, just waterbased house paints. In fire extinguishers, weed sprayers and rollers with corrigated covers taped 4 roller poles together. 1 of the reasons is i was just tested for toxicity and metals in my body and they are exponentially high causing many health issues. So if you plan on painting for years wear a fucking mask. The photo is another lovely shot by @p1xels  Good to have a holiday and go 9 days without fumes. My lungs are not sure what to do with all this oxygen...think im getting sick. Mannaged to do a few street scrawlings and one little piece in osaka. Met some legends @hyperfocus81 @onevery and gang. Thanks for showimg me around ✊  More of the same....  Rise and shine. Bit of golden glow for this big ballarat bad boiii. Painted yesterday with @micporterart yep the sky is blown out, the sun rudely rose on the wrong side of the wall (didn't get my memo). The hail storm that took some of the paint off the wall didnt last all day so we got it done. Nice meeting some of the local crew, cheers for kicking it with us ✌ #ballarat #bailer@ballarat
 Getting tropical in preparation for @tropicafestival and trying to convince myself its not cold. Had a few weeks off the tins due to high levels of mercury, arsenic, silver, tin, lead and other nasties in my blood from years of painting without a mask or gloves. Make sure you mask up people. The paint can fuck you up bad over time.  Hello from Hong kong. Part of the massive wall yesterday. Thanks for all the positive feedback about the new clip. If you havent seen it check the link in bio.  Great shot by @p1xels  Go big or go home. This weeks wall with the giger style burner king @dem189 and the ayahuasca boss don of dreamland @mike.makatron photo by @p1xels with human for scale. #bailer #melbourne
