Australian contemporary street artist Sam Bates (aka Smug One) is known around the world for his incredible life-like, large-scale murals. Smug's inspiration comes from the people he meets or comes in contact with, resulting in unique pieces created in his recognizable, photo-realistic style.
Juddy Roller studio in Fitzroy, Melbourne, hosted Smug One's first-ever solo exhibition in October 2018. Fans came in droves and were in for an absolute treat!
'Skin and Bone' is a collection of Smug One's paintings created using aerosol and acrylic on canvas. The results are simply breathtaking!
