Step into the world of Kelsey Montague, international street artist who is behind the social media phenomenon of those amazing whimsical wings and headphone murals at Bondi Beach graffiti wall.
In celebration of the release of her colouring book, What Lifts You, I caught up with Kelsey at Pier One Sydney Harbour when she was in town for the Writer’s Festival.
From travelling and discovering new experiences are translated into her drawings, offering a perspective that is both broadly universal and deeply personal. Not sure about you, but when I first saw her large-scale art at Bondi, I felt I become part of the art and got lost in a world of imagination. No question, that her positivity and enthusiasm is what sparks it all. For those who want a fun piece of fact: her first pair of wings were on a public wall in New York City with the hashtag #whatliftsyou attracted thousands of people including Taylor Swift.
Now Kelsey’s exquisite works are at your fingertips—to entice and engage you with their beauty and positivity. Printed on luxe paper, these are intricate and inspiring images you’ll want to linger over and lavish color upon. You’ll want to cut them out, frame them, create one-of-a-kind decor from them. Each is designed to remind you to consider what inspires you and to always keep the answers close to your heart. What Lifts You Book
People are encouraged to step into the artwork and become part of the drawing and then post pictures on social media. Kelsey hopes to make people smile, laugh and see the world in a beautiful way and make you stop and think about the blessings in your life.
Thanks Kelsey xx
