We need to come up with a new category regarding the intersection of fine art and street art. The line has been blurred. Obliterated. When a collection of Banksy pieces goes for six-figures at Sotheby’s, it is a new game.

There is a new rising star in the game and he goes by the name of Meggs.  Based in Melbourne, Australia, he is part Basquiat, part Jack Kirby, part Futura 2000.


Initially recognised for his multi-layer street stencils and posters, Meggs has become a well respected member of Australia’s street art culture. With a background of graffiti, skateboarding, heavy metal and graphic design Meggs has developed his painting skills from street to galleries with a mixture of aerosol based character work and stencil based expressive canvases.

New Balance recently profiled him in a 3-part video series on their site. Good stuff.
