Stormie Mills to be honoured with a Cullen Street Art Suite
Best known for his character based work, Stormie explores the idea of isolation and the human condition, drawing on his time as a homeless adolescent for inspiration.

VICTORIA.- Artist Stormie Mills will be the first Australian street artist to be honoured with a street art suite at The Cullen hotel in Melbourne, joining internationally renowned artists D*Face, Swoon and Blek Le Rat.

Stormie, who is in residence at the Hotel from Tuesday 2 October for an exhibition at Metro Gallery 1 – 20 October, will gather inspiration and leave his mark in the suite over the course of the week.

Stormie’s suite will be the fourth Street Art Suite in the hotel. Renowned street artists D*Face, Swoon and Blek Le Rat have left their marks whilst staying in the hotel since it opened in late 2009. In 2012, The Cullen officially launched their Street Art Suites to guests, further cementing the Art Series Hotels mandate of creating unique art inspired experiences for guests.

Best known for his character based work, Stormie explores the idea of isolation and the human condition, drawing on his time as a homeless adolescent for inspiration. Stormie has travelled the world showing in London, New York, Tokyo and Miami. He has now settled back in Australia, selling out shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. His latest work, ‘Peoples and Places’, is showing at Melbourne’s Metro Gallery.

General Manager at The Cullen, Alicia Brown, says; “The Cullen has always been a sanctuary for expressive art, which is why street art is such a great fit. It pushes the boundaries, like Adam’s work does, and really makes you think about the concept of what makes art. It’s such an honour to have such a revered artist leaving their mark one of our suites and adding to our growing street art collection.”

The Cullen is inspired by and dedicated to controversial artist, Adam Cullen who passed away in July this year. The Street Art Suites create a unique conversation between the street artist and Cullen, daring works cover iconic Australian themes including The Ned Kelly Gang splashed in bold colours throughout the Hotel.

All Art Series Hotels offers private tours with an in-house art curator, art channel and art library in every suite. Smart cars and bicycles are available and knowledgeable, enthusiastic staff are the cornerstone of every experience.

The Art Series Hotels concept is the brainchild of Melbourne entrepreneur Will Deague. The Cullen, The Olsen and The Blackman are the first in a series of art hotels opening around Australia, to be followed by The Watson in Adelaide in 2013 and The Larwill in Melbourne in 2014.

Cullen Street Art Suits start from $259 per night.
