Tom Civil’s work can be found in many tucked away nooks of the city. His
stencil and street work has been featured in various publications including Melbourne
Stencil Art Capital, Street|Studio, Space Invaders (NGA), the film Rash,
as a feature artist in the Melbourne Stencil Festival 2004/05/09 and the
Cans Festival in London in 2008. He has also exhibited walk-through
installations and worked closely with his brother Ned, who died from
cancer in late 2010, under the guise The Evil Brothers. Tom and his
brother Ned also exhibited with their Dad, Tony as Sevil & Sons. Tom has
given workshops and talks in different communities about murals and the
political nature of street art, and is interested in how street art and
graffiti create community, mark space and act as a human-scaled anarchic form
of urban architecture. He is also the co-founder of small Melbourne-based
radical publishers Breakdown Press.
