Rone is an Australian artist from Melbourne. He is renowned for the stylised images of ‘girls’ faces – it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that he has had more posters in Melbourne’s streets than any other artist in the city’s history. Rone is one of the original members of Everfresh Studios where he still works daily. His ‘girls’ come with him as he travels and now appear on the streets of Los Angeles, New York, London, Toyko, Barcelona and Hong Kong. Of all the stencil artists from the initial Melbourne stencil boom of the early 2000s, he is the only one remaining who still is consistently getting his work up. His art was acquisitioned by the National Gallery of Australia last year, and he recently sold out his first ever solo show in Melbourne before it even opened, highlighting his status as the literal poster boy of Australia’s next crop of street artists.
