About the artist

Seb Humphreys is an Australian visual artist known for his large scale mural work and sculptures that explore the intersection of nature and the modern urbanized world. As a Mural artist Humphreys goes under the moniker 'Order55' and is recognized internationally for his distinctive style of transparently layered abstract paintings. He has many public works throughout Europe and the Americas, as well as many successful projects over the last 15 years operating in Australia and New Zealand.

Scott Coleman (KAB101) - a painter who mainly uses acrylic, aerosol spray paints and inks, is a first generation Australian graffiti artist living in Adelaide, South Australia. Street-writing since the early eighties, KAB101 has developed a marking style reflective of his personality. His work is based on calligraphic signature markings and mechanical type styles. His studio paintings consist of these same styles. They tell stories of identity, his emotions and experiences related to his past and present affinity with writing his name and taking space. Utilising spray paint, inks, markers and brushes he constantly finds himself exploring new mediums to produce works connected to the written word.
