It’s at this point that you would expect to see a nice big asterix with the standard ” The views and opinions of the artists do not in any way represent, and in no way reflect, that which …….are solely those of the artist and do not necessarily….yada yada yada…”
Well, when it comes to the views expressed by Sitt Sitlakone we can only say….. SPOT ON! We are all for freedom of expression and love when that expression hits the walls.
The image featured, as a finalist, in the 2013 Australian stencil art prize and has only grown in relevance as more and more people take to the streets to demonstrate against more and more Australians getting less and less, while that top 5% get more and more.
So not only do we support the observations of Sitt.
We kind of make similar ones too!
Similarly Sitt’s image ‘Old Man Banksia’ created to “represent the indigenous people”.
Also hit a chord with us on the streets of Melbourne.
The work of Sitt, like so many works on the street, encompass social commentary and satire. They wrestle the control of the airwaves from advertising and media magnates. They challenge us to think and consider and dissect. To question.
