First and foremost, all our Melbourne Street Tour guides are artists.
Our Tour Guides
Suki is a Melbourne based artist who works primarily with urban art installations and printmaking, though also explores materials including fabric, fibre, ink and found objects. Combining subtle femininity and the natural world she creates works that contrast and complement the walls of the city. Travelling around the country and overseas to share her art Suki seeks to draw attention to the beauty in the decay of urban walls and the disparity of quiet images against the busy world of city life.
James is a young Melbourne based artist whose work crosses through the worlds of animation, illustration, and painting. Journeying through the nostalgia of obsolete technology, youth culture, and the pitfalls of young love; Wilson’s rose-tinted references look back at the universal growing paints of adolescence and unripe adulthood.
Exploring life through loose, nonlinear narratives, his acute observations peer through a wryly introspective lens; deconstructing cultural stigmas, poking fun at fragile male egos and sassy female stereotypes.
Akemi is a street artist that has been at it since 2012 when he started in Adelaide. His work is primarily stencil based, but has done some sculptural work, and on the rare occasion, freehand aerosol. There’s a strong Japanese influence moving through my work, and is known for painting Koi fish on the ground. Akemi loves to work show the many facets of street art, and if you’re lucky do some painting on a tour too!
