Who said there’s nothing happening in the Canberra Streetart Scene?
The creative scene in our capital territory seems to be growing more and more… For that reason Molotow Australia is happy to dedicate a special shout to one of the most active local artists in town at the moment – Houl!
Wielding a marker like a sword, Houl has carved a name for himself with his clean, crisp lines, intricate details and bizarre characters.
Since they are available in town again (check out the local distributor Sancho’s Dirty Laundry) – Houl loves working with Molotow artist tools. He uses One4All markers for his pieces on old street signs, shredded skate decks and wicked hand shapes on canvases – and of course he doesn’t miss packing some Molotow Premiums when he is getting started on his well-known half shaded, half outlined aerosol characters on walls all across Canberra and Sydney.
In addition to participating in a growing number of group exhibitions, creating artwork for Absolut Vodka, Grill’d Burgers and Groovin’ The Moo, and being the first ever winner of Secret Wars Australia in 2010, last year Houl had his artwork projected onto the National Library of Australia, The National Portrait Gallery, Questacon and The Museum of Australian Democracy as part of the 2013 Enlighten Festival. With a burgeoning public interest in live art, Houl has found himself in his element once again, painting for audiences of all sizes, bringing his own style of art to a wider audience.
