"So good to to have creative freedom and be able to combine my love of nature and graff on my favourite kind of wall"

- ADVATE

The work features an adult Crimson Rosella, based on an amazing photo by local photographer Mark Lethlean, taken less than 20km away at Devilbend.

Artist: DVATE, Victoria

Jimmy Dvate is a Melbourne based artist and graphic designer whose position in the street art scene is well established and can be seen on walls, canvas and in magazines both locally and internationally.

Growing up in Melbourne, a stone’s throw from a railway station, he was instantly drawn to the colourful work along the suburban railway lines and in 1996 began experimenting at leaving his own mark on society.

Over the past five years Jimmy’s work has been focused on his passion for local flora and fauna. It is a way for him to directly connect to the area he is painting in and highlight an aspect of the local environment that he feels is important to showcase. Where possible he will chose a plant, bird or animal that is either endangered or threatened, helping to educate and raise awareness.
