Tristan Tait currently works with painted wood mediums in order to construct stylised imagery and distinctive interpretations. His latest works are a contemporary study on the train network and the associated Flinders Street Station, considering the pathways and viewpoints from the everyday commuter. This subject matter is also of significance through a personal and reflective connection to the journey and to the metropolitan landscape. After moving to Melbourne a few years ago from country Victoria, the work epitomises vividly the influence of graffiti and stencil street art forms that are ever evident in Melbourne’s unique and extensive number of laneways. Next year Tristan will be undertaking his final year studying industrial design at RMIT University.
