Biography / Meggs

David Hooke, or better known as MEGGS, is amongst the most progressive Australian street and fine artist. Recognized for his unique and energetic style he uses a lot of colours yet connects it so clearly. More over he uses a lot of illustrative elements with authentic texture and somehow free flowing design that looks astonishing. MEGGS’ works are featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION Museum in 2017.

MEGGS completed his Bachelor of Design at Swinburne University in 2000.  He is the founding member of a unique collective of a street art pioneers ‘The Everfresh Crew’. He gets his influence from his love for the comic book art, sci-fi, skateboarding, heavy metal and rock music and sure the rich graffiti culture worldwide. In addition to his art, he is an active supporter of NGOs across the world; Fareshare, PangeaSeed, and Pow! Wow! Worldwide. to name a few. Due to this experience his signature and style got stronger and stronger. One of his strongest experiences is connecting himself with likeminded energising people who are also in the search to freely express their creative ideas, which is somehow a message he transmits via his outstanding mural artwork.
