Rone lives and creates in Collingwood, Victoria. Drawing inspiration from his world travels and the cultures that surround him, Rone got his start in stencils on the street before moving on to large-scale murals and, in recent years, multi-sensory installations inviting the viewer to explore creativity and beauty through an immersive sense of loss and decay. His distinctive portraits can be seen in various states of ruin in cities like London, Paris, New York, San Francisco, Havana, Christchurch, Detroit and Hong Kong. His works also appear in permanent collections at the National Gallery of Australia and National Gallery of Victoria. His first survey exhibition, Rone in Geelong, will open at the Geelong Gallery in February 2021.
