Biography / Rone

Australian street artist Rone’s work always walks on the narrow path between beauty and decay and his murals consisting of female faces, gradually worn away by natural and human elements can be found around the world from New York to New Zealand, as well as on his collaboration with URBAN NATION on Project M/2 in 2014.

“Juxtaposing beautiful portraiture against the deterioration of antiquated buildings” is Rone’s trademark, whose style evolution started in Melbourne’s street art movement in the early 2000s as a member of the Everfresh crew. For Rone, beauty is unexpected and fleeting, which might be why he is best known today for his haunting, stylised images of women’s faces, driven by the ambition to find the friction point between beauty and decay in huge photorealistic murals. For many years he is leaving his female muses on walls and streets everywhere now, but today Rone’s work can also be found in galleries like Stolen Space London, URBAN NATION Berlin and Allouche gallery in New York.
