Social media is set to explode this month as the Big Picture Fest 2019 paints its way across Frankston City for a second year from March 22–24. Kicking off with an epic free Block Party, the festival will see street artists create lasting artworks on buildings and in laneways across Frankston’s city centre. As with last year’s event, free walking tours will be on offer as well as pre-event viewing options from March 18 so you can watch the artists as they create their masterpieces.  

Among the line-up this year is Germany’s Rafael Gerlach (SatOne). Abstract in nature, Rafael’s art is in fact an expression of sensitivity present in objects but which can be ‘seen’ only on an instinctive level. The colourful sensuality of his works continues his narration of exquisiteness hiding from direct observation, being sensed only through reflection. 

New Zealanders Charles and Janine Williams (Diva and Phat One) will bring modern interpretations of cultural design — specifically their Maori heritage — into an urban context along with native/endemic bird life. Working and travelling extensively throughout New Zealand and around the globe, this husband and wife team creates visual stories that connect them to the land, the stories and the people they encounter along the way. 

Italy’s Manuel Di Rita (Peeta) will showcase his sculptural style of lettering. His works can be seen around the globe and form incredible optical illusions on large-scale buildings. Manuel is a graffiti artist currently living in Venice and is a member of the EAD crew, from Padova in Italy, as well as New York City’s FX and RWK crews and has taken part in jams, festivals and art shows all over the world. 

Sam Songailo’s work takes form in painting, installation, video, sound and sculpture. He is deeply influenced by digital technology and electronic music, adopting algorithms and concepts from these disciplines that shape his approach to both physical and pictorial space. Often highly immersive and realised on a monumental scale, his work accentuates the compositional elements of line and space in a form that recalls both the modernist grid and digital networks. 

Born in France and living in Melbourne, Lucy Lucy’s work moves between large-scale public murals, gallery work, tribal ornaments and bespoke fashion. Her paintings capture the evolving folklore of the feminine, exploring the diversity and boundaries of heritage. More recently, Lucy has explored the concepts of presence and perception through imaginary masks enfolding female portraits. 

The Big Picture Fest will be overseen by Brecknock Consulting and Joel Van Moore, the creator of the popular Port Adelaide Wonderwalls Festival, and is being funded through the city’s Street Art Masterplan, part of the State Government’s commitment to revitalise Frankston City and Frankston City Council’s laneway activation initiatives.
