Graffiti studio a saucy outlet for aerosol art passion
AEROSOL art has a home in Murwillumbah with the opening of Sauce Studio earlier this year.
It's run by aerosol artist Christian "Sauce" Griffiths, who has spent the past 20 years developing his mural and graffiti art skills.
"I began my art journey in primary school, where I copied band and surf logos," Sauce said.
"During high school my fascination with drawing lettering increased when I was exposed to graffiti art - it took fonts and lettering to a whole new level.
"I have applied my studies in youth work to facilitate successful aerosol art workshops with a wide range of participants, including elderly, remote indigenous, cancer patients, special needs and disabilities."
Sauce and the studio's communications and arts development manager, Ainslie Rose, have a great love of graffiti art and of Murwillumbah.
"Graffiti and aerosol art is an issue which requires cultural sensitivity as there are many different layers to the issue.
"People use graffiti for many different reasons, some as a form of resistance and others as an expression or artistic outlet," Ms Rose said.
