Great Australian Artist #1

I'll also be using this blog to point out some great Melbourne artists that I come across.

First cab off the rank is Ben Thomas - check out his work over at City Shrinker. Ben takes shots of Melbourne and by using a special technique (I think it's called tilt-shifting) makes everything look like it's a model. Here's his latest:














If I do open up a gallery, Ben will be the first artist I'll try to get involved.

Are you an artist from Melbourne with some work to show off? Let me know via comments. Thanks.
