Nobody stays young and handsome forever, that’s a fact of life. Melbourne street artist Rone, whose full name is Tyrone Wright, recently finished a new project that he called “The Omega Project”. He continues his longstanding interest in the concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline.
He has painted portraits of beautiful women in the soon-to-be-demolished house in Melbourne, which is the last remaining home on a development site. Rone turned the house into an exhibition that was open for only a few weeks to give people a chance to see it for the last time. He’s trying to remind people that beauty is fleeting.
