On New Years Day I was invited by Daimon Downey and Tim Holmes à Court to decorate one of Sydney’s most iconic restaurants, Catalina on Rose Bay. The one day installation inlcuded over 100 metres of vinyl which was cut and plastered over every surface I could see in a confetti style.
“Modern society is fast paced. Time is precious and often neglected. We need to slow down, take it all in and start living in the moment. This mural will inspire onlookers to challenge their perspective about how precious life’s moments are.”
One of Sydney’s largest murals. ‘Here, Now’ was painted for the Art & About Festival.
Corner of Pitt Street and Park Street, Sydney.
Mural installed on the exterior of Liverpool City Library, painted in collaboration with Cam Wall and MoCreative.
Thanks to everyone who braved one of the coldest night in Melbourne history. More photos here.

Having not exhibited in Melbourne for over a decade, Numskull’s long awaited return also marks his first showing with Backwoods Gallery. Bright Lights is a series of paintings and sculptures that continue on from his recent residency at the Museums Quartier in Vienna where he celebrated our memories of popular comic book characters by reinterpreting them as a collection of museum busts.
Much like the works from Vienna, where the compositional arrangements of objects partially masked the identity of the characters, this new suite aims to subjugate the obvious. In Bright Lights, the immediately recognizable figures have disappeared. In their place are silhouettes of headless beings devoid of any distinctive personality, anonymous and statuesque. Their bodies are jolted by the blows of arrows piercing their skin as they float amongst a wreckage of irregular patterned objects.

Thanks to Perfekt World, I was recently invited to Vienna, Austria to live and work in the Museums Quartier as part of their residency program.
We produced a screenprint with local print makers, opened a solo exhibition of original works and painted three walls. Massive thanks to Perfekt World for hosting me, Inoperable Gallery and locals Knarf, Fresh Max and Mafia for the walls and everyone else I met along the way.
