Tom Gerrard is a Melbourne based artist who has spent a lot of time painting and developing his style while living overseas. He’s painted murals across South America, the USA and Europe before settling down in Barcelona for a year and a half.
During these travels he became interested in drawing and painting the architecture that surrounded him. Now back in Melbourne he has been painting murals that depict his local suburban surroundings using acrylic roller paint and spray paint. These houses all have a story linking them to Tom’s life and the suburb they are painted in.
"I don't have one artist who I'm inspired by. I'm more inspired by technique. I love using a flat technique using minimal colour palette and line work. I like to get my desired look without using fades, shading or multiple colours."
