Join local street artist Justin Livingston (aka Julla) in Lismore's very own outdoor street art space, the Back Alley Gallery for a introductory class in street art. Get a personal guided tour of the Back Alley Gallery and spend a couple of hours at our new Work-Shop wall learning the basics of muralism, street art and how to approach making large scale works using spray paint. 

Justin will take you through the history and background of graffiti and street art as well as talk about how to plan and mock up your work as well - including the practical instruction of how to use aerosols, covering can control, different caps and how to apply these skills to the wall.

This is a fun and relaxed intro to street art suited to beginners who would like to have the experience but don't know where to start as well as designers, artists and creatives who would like to take the jump into public art, muralism and street art or just want to 'have a go!'


Julla has been painting Graffiti and Street Art in Sydney since he was 15 years old (over 20+ years!) and now resides in the Northern Rivers. He works fulltime as a commissioned artist (Julla Art) working closely with the local council, schools, youth and disability sectors. He continues to expand his style, techniques and scale of the work that he does, always with a strong graffiti aesthetic - a sense of where he came from and how it all started. He is a key member of the local Back Alley Gallery street art project here in Lismore and has a strong sense of community engagement.
