CUTBACK seeks to understand the 'key' to the street and graffiti addiction. The secretive world of street art and graffiti tensions becomes visible as we follow the meteoric rise of artist E.L.K. Luke Cornish from garage artist to sell out solo show, then triumphing at his first international London gallery exhibition in under three years. With insightful commentary from graffiti and street artists, curators and collectors the Australian street art and graffiti scene is revealed.
CUTBACK is a multi-platform web and feature documentary project filmed in Sydney, Melbourne, Berlin and New York City between 2011-2014. Personal interviews reveal the conflicted feelings and motivations of street artists as they gain notoriety and acceptance in the art world.
