MAY’S PROUDLY PRESENTS
THE SYDNEY-MELBOURNE CONNECTION
DEB & PHIBS
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 16, 2007
MAY LANE ST PETERS
(next to St Peters train station)
Down in the lane this month we bring out the big guns as we feature a collaborative effort from Deb & Phibs. Deb is one of Melbourne’s finest, whose self portrait-inspired girls are no mere wallflowers. Her seductive style is unmistakable and is bound to stop traffic.
Deb is joined by her partner Phibs, with whom she’s been experimenting with aerosols. Originally from Sydney but now based in Melbourne, Phibs has been actively painting for the last 18 years, inspired by the art and mythology of other cultures- both ancient and modern. Solo, their work is unique- together they transcend the ordinary.
Each month, MAY'S invites a street artist to paint a 3 x 2.5 metre panel space installed on May Lane, St. Peters. At the month’s close, the panels are taken down and replaced afresh for the next ‘chapter’ in the project. The MAY'S scenario obviously differs from normal graffiti practice but, like all street work, is subject to ‘the elements’.
Each new artist’s work is hailed in with drinks, which this month will take place on February 16. Eventually, MAY'S will re-exhibit the panels together as a preserved account of the lane’s activity. Each artist’s feature work is for sale via MAY'S.
MAY’S also acts as a commissioning body, connecting the featured artists with people interested in funding or purchasing new street art works. For more information on each artist, check out www.mays.org.au
