OPENING FRIDAY 28th AUGUST, 2009
MAY LANE, ST PETERS (next to St.Peters Train Station)
Each month, MAY'S invites a street artist to paint a 3.5 x 2.5 metre panel space installed on May Lane, St. Peters. At the month’s close, the panels are taken down and replaced afresh for the next ‘chapter’ in the project. The MAY'S scenario differs from normal graffiti practice but, like all street work, is subject to ‘the elements’. Eventually, MAY'S will re-exhibit the panels together as a preserved account of the lane’s activity.
Sydney-based graffiti artist Mistery has been a practicing graffiti writer since 1983. Typical of his generation he was involved in all elements of early Hip-Hop; dance, graffiti, and music. Mistery's commitment to hip-hop and graffiti has been consistent since then.
"He was really behind the resurgence of breaking culture...He sets a really good example for young people ... leading by example... you can make something of yourself - you can be anything you want to be" - Maya Jupiter (ABC Compass, 2006)
