Andy Uprock’s global campaign for fence beautification hit Sydney’s MTV Gallery last week. For those unfamiliar with Andy’s work, he’s the guy who invented a new style of graffiti whereby plastic cups are pushed between the wires in cyclone fences to spell out words or make cool geometric images. It’s called Cuprocking and people all over the world give it mad love.
Presented by MOOKS, Graffiti for the Blind features poetry emotively “cuprocked” in Braille as well as photographs and Braille jewellery made in collaboration with TMOD. All works are for sale with a percentage of proceeds going to Vision Australia. Vice was at the launch, and as you can see from the photos, it was a blinder.
Graffiti for the Blind runs until November 29 at MTV Gallery, 4-16 Young Street, East Sydney.
