Hang Outs... Victoria, Australia

Tom's latest show, Stick Folk opens this Friday, 2nd May from 6pm at Backwoods, featuring a large body of original work, over 20 paintings, 9 etchings and unveiling a large steel sculpture.
Tom’s background in Australian street art goes far back to his contributions to the Empty Shows in 2000. Since then he’s been an important figure in the Melbourne scene, an organizer, activist and a generally great guy.
Tom Civil is working on a modern way to see Australia: “Aussie punk and positive”. He has captured private moments of tranquility that connect the bush to the city, expressing them expertly in aerosol through fine lines, overspray and cutbacks.
The result is a new vision of Australia which reconciles Australia’s underground with tradition.
