As LINZ, an internationally acclaimed and Ironlak-sponsored graffiti writer with a career now spanning 23 years, Harnden’s movements have aligned him with celebrated Australian musicians, artists and sporting personalities.

These figures, along with some closer to his heart, form the pith of his work; a realism characterised by the heightened juxtaposition of subject and technique.

In his time and place, Lee Harnden is a catalyst of ‘subterranean representation’. Unfortunate for him as it is for many true artisans, his work will speak volumes much louder in generations yet to come.
