Big messages and artworks that are in your face can deliver a strong message, but is it for everyone? What if we could lower the shock factor and make important messages something that visually even a child could view? Although the child might not get the message it may be a gateway for their parents to read further and perhaps plant a conversation seed for the next generation.
Rukz One was born and raised in the Western Suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. Often described as unique and polarising, he (and his art) swings between the simple and the complex. His art draws inspiration from skateboarding, hip hop, the Melbourne street art/graffiti culture, and humanity.
Now focused on the Artdecypher banner he aims to shine a creative light that reaches new locations and audiences by paving new paths that challenge the “norm”. Community and collaboration are driving forces in his work.
Previously he organized events that combined music and art under the “Creative Culture” banner and provided opportunities for creatives to showcase and celebrate. Rukz One served as a director on the RedWest Creative Co-Op Ltd board as Secretary, Treasurer, and President and currently holds positions as a member of Wyndham City’s Creative City Portfolio Advisory Committee and the Wyndham City’s Public Art & Collections Expert Advisory Panel (PACEAP).
