"Portrait of a good friend + great human"

- Ling

Artist: Ling, Melbourne

A founding member of the Safehouse Studio and currently working from the renowned Everfresh Studio, Ling is a Melbourne based Graffiti / Street artist that has been adding colour to his surrounding environment since 2000.

Known for producing large-scale murals, Ling looks to combine the aesthetics of traditional graffiti with that of his childhood. With his formative years being through the late 80’s and early 90’s Ling often borrows imagery, colour schemes and subject matter synonymous with Pop culture from the era.

In addition to this Ling has continued to develop his studio practice, combining techniques developed on the street with those of traditional fine art. The outcome being finished pieces with bold colours and heavy textures that give a nod to his graffiti pedigree whilst showing patience and consideration in application.
