DMOTE is a New York-based artist hailing from Sydney, Australia, where there is no denying his influence on the global underground scene. You mention graffiti in Australia, people say DMOTE. Spearheading the Australian graffiti scene since the early nineties, DMOTE has accomplished a phenomenal plethora of work, and now, transcending into a fine arts focused phase of his career, is bridging the gap between his roots in street, painting and a culture sensitive approach to commercial work. DMOTE’s style derives from his youth and life experiences while his inspirations come from the streets and graffiti. His paintings are a natural progression from a misspent youth to a new found maturity. His artistic ability lends itself to allow him to act as a designer, illustrator, painter and curator in addition to graffiti artist.
