Wet and Free Collective are a group of LQBTIQ+ and POC artists who meet on a regular basis. They collaborate on drawings, often on large scale or in public and with the involvement of members of the community. Coming from backgrounds as diverse as performance, visual art, architecture, and sexological bodywork they relish the opportunities to make art and explore their current states of life, love, identity and loss in a 21st Century Australian environment.

THE FUTURE WE SEE
Brighter and Stronger Artists
At wet and free collective, we understand the importance of support in an artist’s life. Our community serves as a special place where creative juices can flow freely.
INSPIRATION AND CREATIVITY
Wet and free collective was born out of a desire to share with artists all over the Melbourne area, and ever since then, that’s exactly what we’ve been doing. Our community has grown to include local artists and students from all walks of life. We like to play while we do our work, sharing not only our creativity but also our life experiences. We’re so proud of the community we’ve created and love watching our art blossom.
PUBLIC SPACE ACTIVATION
We encourage random public collaboration and we love to see the people around us while we are creating. Everyone is welcomed!
We are artists know how important is to have that safe heaven were we can explore our creativity and share it with friends. That's why we also love to gather and host at our homes, we can share a delish meal cooked with arty creativity.
