“Graduating with a Bachelor of design from Swinburne University, Meggs has worked as both a commercial designer and image maker as well as continually evolving his skills in painting, illustration and screen printing to explore his own unique style of character work from both walls to canvas. Meggs’ artwork reflects his background in graffiti art, skateboarding, illustration and design.

Initially recognised for his stencils and aerosol art throughout the CBD and surrounding suburbs, Meggs has evolved his skills in painting, illustration and screen printing to explore his own unique style of character work from both wall to canvas. His work can be found predominantly around the streets of Melbourne, however has also travelled as far as London, Tokyo, Barcelona and Paris.

Meggs’ artwork reflects his background in graffiti art, illustration and design. The exploration of conscience, self-awareness, frustration and vulnerability are underlying themes throughout his work which challenge social ideals of morality and responsibility. Using references to his own childhood nostalgia and personal frustrations, Meggs juxtaposes pop-culture imagery and abstraction to create a collage of characters and an expression of emotion and movement.”
