From the streets and subways of Philadelphia and New York all the way to the blank walls and trains of Australia, graffiti art made its first vivid mark on Adelaide in the early 1980s. As local kids tried their hand with a spray can, an underground youth scene ignited a raw era of colour, style and artistic devotion across the city. This new visual language of bombing and burners engulfed neighbourhoods from Noarlunga to Gawler and everywhere in between.
Featuring over 450 full-colour images captured on film, masterfully preserved and restored.
This is Wildfire, the story of Adelaide’s graffiti art pioneers.
