The Southern Hemisphere’s largest public artwork has been unveiled in Melbourne

Street art, but not as you know it.

Melbourne street artist Kitt Bennett has joined forces with street art collective Juddy Roller to create the Southern Hemisphere’s largest public artwork.

The mural, named Revolution, combines Bennett’s passion for producing large-scale works with the latest in satellite technology. All up, the mural takes up 9,000 square metres of space at Port Melbourne’s Fisherman’s Wharf precinct. The work is basically impossible to take in up-close, but a bird’s eye view of mural has been made available thanks to drones.

Revolution is also the world’s largest independent produced work of animated ‘gif-ti’, which is a term used to describe GIF-style street art designed to be viewed online. The ten 30-metre figures are meant to come together to form individual frames of a moving animation.

The story behind Revolution will be shared in an animated video at the same time as a new exhibition hosted by Juddy Roller on Friday December 13.
