The Great Wall of Graffiti: Cup From Above’s new art space.










It’s impossible to miss the vibrant splashes of colour around Cup From Above.

In the last few months, Metagraphics‘ James Alley has been extremely busy, creating works of art on the cafe’s back space and indoor walls, presumably while everyone else has been enjoying their coffee.
The vibrant scenes have been the cause of some incredibly positive comments from recent customers, and now Cup From Above is seeking to expand the project to the surrounding suburbs.

The Wall, as well as acting as a tool of expression for both Cup From Above and James, will now be used also as an avenue for budding artists.
The site will seek to bring together some of the surrounding talent on Brisbane’s north side, and act as a hub for aspiring graffiti writers, and of course admirers.

As the program develops it will be used as to mentor at-risk youth who are looking for a way to legitimately express their art and work through difficulties their facing with older people who have walked that road.

We look forward to seeing new additions to The Great Wall of Graffiti, and perhaps some fresh faces in the cafe!
