LING
Ling is a Melbourne based graffiti artist that has been producing traditional pieces, characters and installations for in excess of 15 years.
Ling looks to combine traditional graffiti aesthetics with that of his childhood. With his formative years being through the late 80’s and early 90’s Ling borrows imagery, colour schemes and subject matter synonymous with Pop culture from that era. With graffiti being a largely male dominated and masculine environment, these pieces provide an insight into Ling’s sense of humour as he looks to combine serious figures with those of a more comedic nature to take a less serious approach than that of his peers.
In addition to traditional graffiti Ling continues to deliver conceptual installations as a part of his ‘Allure of Gold’ series. This series utilizes discarded objects, enveloping them completely in gold paint to deliver the illusion of value.
