Phoenix has been making visual art in Melbourne for 35 years, and has been an active street artist in the local scene for the past ten.
His colourful and thought-provoking pasteups and solid relief plaques have been installed in public spaces all over Melbourne, around Australia and NZ, Europe and the Americas. Many of his works are part of ongoing series. These explore ecological, humanistic, spiritual, psychosocial, linguistic and iconographic themes through colour, visual storytelling, humour, text and metaphor.
Phoenix’s life-time explorations of creativity and improvisation in the fields of healing, writing, poetry storytelling, visual communication, comedy and philosophy naturally inform his broad visual body of work.
