Daniel Lynch

AKA Junky Projects moved to Melbourne from Newcastle in the ‘90s. Over the last decade he’s developed his unique street art style, using found objects and other junk to create and install “sentinels” in conspicuous locations in the city not only to amuse, but also to highlight society’s tendency to mindlessly over-consume. He also works in aerosols, painting and leading workshops with schools and disadvantaged youth. Daniel has been a tour guide and educator for Blender studios since 2011. junkyprojects.weebly.com

Today he is a leading street art photographer and commentator, and is chief photographer for Invurt, an online webzine focused on urban and street art in Australasia. He knows the artistic landscape of Melbourne’s laneways like the back of his hands, and he probably has photos of every iteration that came before it. www.invurt.com // David Russell Photography
