Wendy Murray

Dear blakkbyrd,
Just a quick note to say hi & let you know I have a solo exhibition happening at The Art Traders.

It's called Welcome to my Neighbourhood.

'Inspired by the local characters in her neighbourhood – Darlinghurst – Wendy Murray introduces her vision of the people and places which define her ‘hood, with a freshness and sweetness, not often associated with grunge, grime and anonymity of the inner city' - Fiona McIntosh, The Art Traders

The show includes all original artwork, including silkscreen works and delicate cast-plaster compositions.

The show runs until 26 April 2008 - still plenty of time to check it out!

Over the past few months I have completed several independent art projects, commissions and workshops, including a stencil art workshop at the MCA.

I have also collaborated with many folks including Daisy Linhares of LA based Bread and Butter, The Darlo Bar, Little Joe by Gail Elliott, Lisa Ho, LOVE#3 Cafe and David Jones. Check out some of these projects & more atwww.wendymurray.com.au

Thanks for your continued support!
Kind regards
Wendy Murray aka Mini Graff

2 – 26 April, 2008

Opening Hours Tues – Fri 10 – 5pm Sat 12 – 5pm



Born in New Zealand, currently based in

Wendy Murray is a Sydney based artist whose work tends to large scale mural projects, both private and public. At times working under her pseudonym Mini Graff, Wendy’s street art challenges typical perceptions of graffiti art. She stencils and paints images on to a variety of media (walls, boards, wallpaper, rarely canvas) which strongly relate to the given environment and community, transforming an anonymous repetitive urban landscape into a unique and personal aesthetic experience. She works with local identities/ characters, artists, musicians and businesses to create each unique project.

Recent major commissions include art murals in David Jones’ leading stores in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane; a recently opened cafĂ© in Camperdown; private commission for a home on the lower north shore of Sydney and Maitland Regional Art Gallery in 2006.
