The crew will surprise the people attending the Fiesta with new Spanish inspired graffiti

Casa Iberica has decided to repaint the façade of the iconic deli shop. The AWOL crew ('A Way Of Life') painted it five years ago. This time, the artists will surprise pedestrians with new Spanish inspired graffiti.

Just a few days ago, Adnate and Slicer (members of the AWOL crew) painted the van with dramatic red and yellow colours on one side, and a flamenco dancer with a "juicy Spanish bum" on the other one. The owners Paulo and Mercia de Sousa use the van to transport the Casa Iberica products: "It looks great now, specially when it's moving".

Matt Adnate combines realism painting with elements of graffiti, bridging the gap between street and fine art. His profile is rapidly growing, with his recent exhibition in Berlin making it his third solo show in the just two years. Now back in Melbourne, Adnate is looking to spend the summer away from the studio and painting walls around Australia.

Slicer's 'unique take' on New York style graffiti has seen his work widely recognised throughout Europe, North America and south east Asia. His fast aggressive line work is distinct in style and evokes a dramatic sense of movement to give urban spaces new life.
