Re-cap Art de la Roo

Art de la Roo was an outdoor exhibition that opened late last month. It shared the exploding Australian street art scene with the city of Toronto, Canada through long distance pasting.

It was wonderful to be apart of this exhibition along side other Australian artists including Asio, Be Free, Blomtrog, Burg, Celeste Potter, Claude, Erin Greer, Ero, Facter, Fezwitch, I and The Others, Joshua Smith, Kitty Art, Klara, Lifetime Stickyfingers, Lucy Lucy, Makatron, Phoenix, QWUX, Rebecca Murphy, Ruskidd, Suki and The Doctor.
The temporary works of art were sent from Melbourne to Toronto and pasted-up in surprise locations around the city. The paste-ups will were placed in places suited to the work and varied from old warehouses, alleys to city walls. If you'd like to see where the works are in relation to each other there is a map on the website.

The works were installed to coincide with the massive contemporary art event, Nuit Blanch. By the sounds of things Art De La Roo was a big success with somewhere between 100 - 150 people on bikes riding around to check out all the works.

As the exhibition was in Toronto, Canada I wanted to create some pasteups that would be relevant to the location and yet Australian. So... I've enlarged my Orca (aka Killer Whale) stencils and used my large fur seal stencil to create three paste-ups.
