Dvate is a Melbourne based artist and graphic designer whose position in the street art scene is well established and can be seen on walls, canvas and in magazines both locally and internationally.
Growing up in Melbourne, a stone’s throw from a railway station, he was instantly drawn to the colourful work along the suburban railway lines and in 1996 began experimenting at leaving his own mark on society.
The fact that much of his early work around Melbourne is still intact is a tribute to the respect he generated amongst his peers.
In 2004 he graduated from Monash University with a degree in Visual Communication. This nurtured his love of letters and composition and he continued to produce street art inspired design. He then spent the next few years working in the screen and offset printing industries, gaining key techniques and skills he still uses today.
