The Rosebery Silo Art is underway and is the sixth installation as part of the hugely successful Silo Art Trail. Street artist Kaff-eine is expected to take approximately 6 weeks to create the masterpiece that is drawing much social media attention.
Who is Kaff-eine?
While studying at law school in Melbourne, Kaff-eine was drawn to the graffiti around her. Inspired by the chance to make art anonymously for unknown audiences, she later developed her drawing skills, left the law, and launched a successful career as a street artist.
Kaff-eine’s early works were influenced by personal stories and symbolism, and she describes her striking and darkly sensual, character-based style as ‘loaded with symbolism and narrative.’ On the street, she is best known for her signature ‘deer hunter’ characters; dreamily sensual, half deer-half human figures.
Having worked on projects in diverse communities around the world, Kaff-eine’s work encourages audiences to engage with social and political issues. She often does so by giving non-artists the tools for creative self-expression that allow them to mark their community or public space in productive ways – in the process helping to connect marginalised communities and facilitate social change.
