I am writing to inform you about the Shellywood™ project in Kevin Grove, Brisbane, Australia from October 2007 to January 2008.
Shellywood™ is a massive 45m x 9m fake movie poster, inspired by my recent residency with a group of Bollywood billboard painters in New Delhi.
Shellywood™ forms part of the Innocence series (2004-2007) in Melbourne and recent projects in India’s Bodhgaya (Enlightenment) and in New Delhi (Planet Shellywood).
A Melbourne version of Shellywood™ will be displayed outside Conical Inc. in Johnston Street, Fitzroy, Melbourne from Oct 29 – Nov 25.
I have attached some further information and images for your interest.

Do you think you have time to sign this petition in support of relaxing the liquor licensing laws in NSW? A bill is being presented this week to Parliament, so sign up now (its not too late)! As they currently stand, licenses are too expensive for small operators to set up little bars like those we love in Melbourne and other great cities in the world, where we can enjoy a quiet drink and a maybe a gig. So Sydney’s drinking venues are dominated by big boozy, sporty, pokie pubs and clubs where we all go home husky with beer on our slippers. It would be nice to end the big operator monopoly. Some resourceful individuals set up this site to provide you with more reliable information than I can provide, and to garner support from the public:
