January 20, 2015
Alias of Jasmina Sevic, a researcher and author for Widewalls. She graduated from the Faculty of Political Science (Department for Journalism) in Belgrade in 2013.

Ayres is an aerosol artist with near on 25 years experience within graffiti art. Working strictly with a spray can, Ayres mixes traditional structured letter styles with new school painting techniques. While being interested in graffiti art from a young age the last 6 years have seen Ayres apply a new form of dedication towards his art, focussing on large scale colourful pieces and pushing his technique and style in an intense quest for improvement.

Having recently moved to Perth, Ayres has started collaborating with both graffiti and street artists, encouraging an exchange of techniques and approach between the two in a hope to realise new ideas which compliment traditional groundwork.

Throughout his artistic career the genre of graffiti art has proven to be an art form that will not sleep lightly. It has continued to progress, push boundaries and develop as founding artists and new comers are continually taking it to new levels and cementing it’s importance as a part of society the world over.

Ayres is one such artist who has shown a long term dedication to the craft. Having recently ignored the idea that lettering needs to be painted in a clean manner, Ayres is looking forward to many more years of experimentation and development to come.
