  • Baby Guerrilla
    Baby Guerrilla

    Baby Guerrilla is an Australian artist interested in approaching space and perspective in new and innovative ways that engage beyond the parameters of a gallery or traditional art space. Over the past couple of years the artist has sought to create a series of works liberated from the constraints of the standard picture plane. She is best known for large-scale public murals of human figures. Her work is intended to appear to defy gravity and constraint and to evoke a sense of wonder, awe, magic and mystery.
