Loving The Virus

Last year, I created a stencil based on one of my earliest paintings, the 1998 Ultra Violet One, and offered it free to download from my web site and use under a Creative Commons license. While it didn’t have anything like the impact of Shepard Fairey’s phenomenal Obey Giant, it was gratifying to come across spray-painted versions of it around Sydney – on concrete walls, bus shelters, and a sidewalk near Bondi Beach – and to hear of it turning up on a club wall in Tokyo and in a skateboard store in Venice, California.
A couple of days ago, I was sent this photo of the stencil on the inside of an elevator in Adelaide.
