Phibs’ involvement in the Australian graffiti scene is all encompassing; he has painted so many walls around Fitzroy, an inner suburb of Melbourne, that it has affectionately become known as ‘Phibsroy’. Originally from Sydney, Phibs came from a strong graffiti background growing up painting on the train lines of Sydney’s inner suburbs with writers like.
Moving to Melbourne in 2001 saw Phibs exposed to evolving Melbourne street art, where he quickly became its most respected and inspirational member. It is no stretch to say that Phibs paints walls every single day of the year, almost without exception. Phibs was the first Everfresh member to make his living solely from his work as an artist, travelling widely throughout Australia to paint commission walls. No doubt he’s painted a few pieces or tags when he’s been in your town.
