KITT

Kitt Bennett is a Melbourne-based artist specializing in colossal large-scale ground murals. His most recent work utilises aerial photography to create the world’s largest piece of “Gif-iti” – four times the size of the previous title holder. It’s this marriage of perspective and technology that drives him to create and invent new ways of looking at the world. Most of his recent body of work can be seen from space when zoomed in from Google Maps.

His work is truly epic and was a big inspiration for making the film. But it’s his personality, contagious energy and outlook on life that really got me excited. This film is not just about his artistic approach – it’s a fun and energetic deeper dive into what goes on in his head. He paints 40-metre-long figures with a simple paint roller, bathes in a tub full of milk and giant Fruit Loops by a lake, talks about his infamous “Scorpenis” painting and plays “bush pokies” — all while sporting a mullet, golden tooth and body covered in tattoos.
