MEGGS was born and raised in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia and completed his Bachelor of Design degree at Swinburne University School of Design in 2000. He is a founding member of the Everfresh crew, a unique collective of street art pioneers who opened the world renowned Everfresh Studio in 2004. MEGGS’ adoration of comic book art, sci-fi fantasy, skateboarding, graffiti culture, heavy metal, and punk rock music are at the core what inspired him to pursue his career in fine art. He currently resides in Los Angeles, California.
This 2014 mural is in Brunswick St, Fitzroy, in one of inner Melbourne's 'Bohemian' neighbourhoods, well suiting MEGGS' style. The magpie in flight with a full blown rose in its beak is a vigorous image that jumps up and out of the wall it is painted on. Birds and roses feature frequently in MEGGS' work and this striking mural is one of my faves.
