CAM SCALE & LES HUDDLESTON
'Monsoon' - NUTTALL PLACE
Cam Scale is a Melbourne-based artist whose craft reaches a wide variety of mediums, although his preference is aerosol, acrylic and oil. His style is a raw mix of street-based and contemporary techniques which usually surround an individual subject.
Cam, in collaboration with local artist Les Huddleston, created this wet season themed mural in response to the wall’s venue - Monsoons. The depiction of fish swirling in the billabong at the feet of the dancing brolgas is a reminder of the beauty and necessity of the natural world.
Les channels inspiration for this piece from the monsoonal rains that fill the billabongs to the point where the bodies of water connect with the ocean. This causes saltwater fauna to breed in the billabongs, turning them into a life source for Aboriginal people to drink and hunt for food. The paint represents a life force, with the mural showing the importance of our natural environment and how it must be maintained by everyone at all costs.
