Once a bustling community of 1900s residential homes, Melbourne’s inner north area is now dotted with dilapidated and abandoned houses and cottages. For Australian street artist Tyron Wright, most popularly known as his nom de plume rone, this area has become the focus of his new project which is centered on the “concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline.”
Within a few weeks, the artist has already transformed some of the withered homes into “fantasy film sets” that highlight ephemeral portraits of women in the most unlikely places. Also known for his silo style art, the artist’s “omega project” highlights typical mid-century Australian interiors which the artist considers to be an important element in this installation.
Talking about the exhibit, he says that “there’s so much about the interiors that I think a lot of people will identify with.”
