FOR Unley street artist Adam Poole-Mottishaw, creativity is the way to get young people on the straight and narrow. Mr Poole-Mottishaw runs aerosol art workshops for youth in areas including Elizabeth and Mount Baker, and at his ColdKrush store and gallery on Unley Rd. He works to break the cycle of vandalism and channel young people into more creative pursuits.

“They are at that age where they’re breaking the rules and they want to be heard, it’s their kind of outlet,” Mr Poole-Mottishaw said. “A lot have the artistic flair, but they seem lost. “I’m not there to tell them what not to do, we’re trying to show them, if you’re proactive, you can actually some money out of it as well.”

Mr Poole-Mottishaw has been nominated for a Pride of Australia award in the Inspiration category, recognising teachers and role models whose compassion and wisdom while teaching, coaching or mentoring our youth has been truly inspiring.

Working under the name “Tarns”, he started out tagging. “When you’re starting, you want to be famous, you’re just a kid off the street and you want to be known, so you work pretty hard getting your name everywhere,” he said. Mr Poole-Mottishaw established an art course for students at Mount Barker’s Adelaide Hills Vocational College who were caught doing graffiti and attendance rates soared. 

His street art is displayed in the Attorney-General’s office, on hit TV show The Block and in Adelaide cafes.

We were very happy to take part in Channel 9's, The Block makeover of the Boylan Ward at The Adelaide Women's & Children's Hospital. This was televised live on The Today Show as part of a Telethon to help raise funds to give the Ward a complete new look complete with interior Street Art by Tarns One.

TARNS ONE solo exhibition

Debut solo exhibition by Notorious Graffiti Artist, Tarns One!

Tarns One (The one who freaks the funk), has been painting graffiti since 1987. Influenced by the Graffiti phenomena in Sydney and Adelaide during the 80s, Tarns picked up a spray can and hasn’t dropped the can since. He is best known for his ability to perpetually reinvent his style, all the while preserving the more traditional elements of graffiti. This has made him an icon in the Australian graffiti culture. Tarns always comes correct with one of the best can control skills in the game.
Tarns has exhibited in many group shows nationally and internationally, and now announces his FIRST Solo exhibition: ‘TARNS ONE’ - his works will be exhibited at the recently opened gallery ‘THE SPACE’ Currie Street, Adelaide (entry via Burnett St). 

This exhibition will show works displaying his impeccable skills with aerosol paint. Tarns continuously stretches the limitless possibilities this art form can be taken. His works are a statement; they feature abstract ideas exploring the relationship of forms and colour with some works derived straight from raw graffiti. His paintings are an explosion of dynamic colours, technical line work and geometric letter forms.

After 27 years of painting graffiti, this exhibition will be a real treat for anyone who has seen Tarns Graffiti Art in the streets, and for those who haven’t you now have the opportunity to see and potentially own a painting of this Australian Aerosol Genius.

Tarns One - First Solo Exhibition on show at - THE SPACE, Currie St (enter from Burnett St) opening on Friday the 28th of November (6-9pm) – 30th of November for 3 days only.
