Muralist Smug One recently completed a brilliant new piece in Melbourne entitled “Otters.” The Aussie street artist used his incredible rendering techniques to create a hyperrealistic image that “cleaned up” a wall underneath which was disrespected and created much online controversy.
A recent video presented by graffiti artist Sofles features the Aussie writer followed in one continuous shot as he wanders through the streets of Melbourne.
This video was made possible to an amazing group of people, who came together to help us celebrate and pay homage to the Collingwood and Fitzroy area of Melbourne. Our goal was to create one continuous drone shot, captured in one take. The amazing team from Swarm UAV pulled it off.
Here you have the result, along with words by the brilliant poet and author Omar Musa.
Original soundtrack by Erin McKimm.
Thanks to all the artists who came down to be a part of this video, the support team of assistants, Easey’s, Everfresh Studio and everyone else who makes Collingwood such an amazing place.
