BIOGRAPHY

Water is a Sydney-based graffiti artist whose distinctive style has taken him from the concrete overlooking Bondi Beach all the way to the Berlin Wall – and countless streets in between. Heavily influenced by his youth spent in and around surf and skate culture through the 80s and 90s, Water first made his mark on the Sydney street scene nearly 15 years ago. He has since built a name for himself through his traditional, New York-reminiscent take on the art form he has long paid homage to, Water’s classic approach to graffiti is kept fresh by his bright choice of colours and modern play on type – a style that has kept him heavily in demand both in the art world and among his various commercial clients.

In addition to his years of experience in the street art world, Water has been professionally trained with a Bachelor of Design and has translated his visual language into a career as a graphic artist. Through the years, he has built up a portfolio that includes work for large corporations such as Telstra, Foxtel, Le Coq Sportif and Boone Skis as well as smaller, more specialised enterprises, including fashion label Strummer and the South Sydney Youth Service. He has participated in numerous collaborations and exhibitions, the most recent alongside Teaz, Spice and Dream in May’s Lane and regularly seeks out creative opportunities that challenge him to engage his visual code in new and exciting ways.
