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 recognisable, 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!
