When anonymous graffiti artworks started appearing on whiteboards in April, students were swept up in the creative mystery.
Now, the un-named artist Milky13 has a collaborator.
New drawings, credited to Creative Arts academic Dr Jon Cockburn (otherwise known as #4), have appeared, layered over the old. The development has led to an artistic conversation between the two creatives, as well as sparking some controversy within the faculty, with some claims graffiti can’t be classified as an artform.
The altered image now includes the words “Jon pwnd” and changes the provocative message of the original artist.
The detailed whiteboard drawings recently led the anonymous artist to be dubbed “UOW’s Banksy”.
FCA students are eagerly awaiting the next instalment of the collaborative conversation.
