Matt Dampney is just one of a number of artists that collectively call themselves “Local Artists Division”. Based on Sydney’s Northern Beaches the gang includes, among others, Lee McConnell, and together the boys spent some time prettying-up one side of a Hurley Art Cube on Day 5.

Washed Out Superhero Show presented by LA Division at the Lofi Collective.
I chose Popeye who has turned to Clowning since the GFC hit and there wasn't much work left saving lives. He's also pretty hip with his neck tatt and pirate hat arrgh!
We also exhibited a 2nd piece of art that represented our own style. I produced a head with a beard... hey! that's what I do.
I was stoked to join my mates at LA division on this show. It was a great night organised by Luke and Bridget.
