The Ironlak dream began in 2002, when a young graffiti writer from Sydney wanted to offer Australian writers a premium spraypaint brand at an affordable price.

As the first Ironlak cans rolled onto shelves in 2004, the price of premium spraypaint was cut dramatically, opening up a whole new world of possibilities for Australian artists.

Starting your own spraypaint brand from scratch comes with a (not so) healthy dose of landmines and headaches. The support we’ve received over the years from writers around the world is what drives us to keep pursuing this crazy dream.

The original spirit of graffiti lives on. Know who you’re supporting.

Last year, Sydney-raised contemporary and mural artist Brad Eastman, aka Beastman, painted a large-scale mural in the centre of Sydney. The mural, spanning over 130 metres, features Eastman’s distinctive and colourful geometric design style, and “is a contemporary abstract interpretation of the repetitive patterns in nature, and the role humans play in its future”.

While painting the mural, Beastman took a moment to muse over the evolution of his artwork and the role murals play in making public space more colourful and vibrant.

The project was curated by aMBUSH Gallery for Arts Brookfield. Video and photos by Billy Zammit.
