Changing Lanes presents live mural work by Sydney street artists and beyond. Ears, SMC[3], Max Berry, Vars and La will run head to head, can to can, bringing street art out into the open in an unforgettable union of the Oh Really and The Movement crews, as well as featuring other more nomadic street personas.

Cartoon nerd and Secret Wars Semi-Finalist Max Berry, makes black and white geometrics a parade of goofy-eyed thicks, and belching, slack-armed kids. Throw in for good measure some chickens, ghouls and mo’s and you might have some idea of what he’s getting at. It’s a style with no boundaries and endless possibilities.

Most known for his clean 2D line designs, in sticker and paste-up form, Max has fast become a big part of the inner Sydney cultural landscape. One third of the Oh Really Gallery trio, Max’s most recent solo exhibition, “A Search for Ground in Higher Places”, saw his practice successfully extended into areas such as jewellery, plush toys and instillation, plus a movement into binary-focused and painterly narrative works that touch on the surreal. Max is also currently involved with the exciting, newly launched, lo-fi collective.

Come down on the festival day and catch Max Berry in his element.
