We should probably start things off by presenting the biggest piece in the whole space, Dvate’s Mudlark. An artist who isn’t afraid to paint the intricate natural textures and one of a kind patterns of an animal is pretty hard to find in Melbourne’s outdoor art culture these days, but Dvate has proven more then a dozen times that he can handle any subject thrown at him. While I’ve said many times about the Melbourne scene getting overloaded with portraits and human faces (in particular), this is a shinning example of an artist reaching out and trying to do present something different. The Mudlark alone is one of this countries most iconic creatures, its call can be heard from most backyards across Australia, making it a well deserved tribute in any artistic setting.
