Know for her amazing photography and short films like ‘Limitless’ featuring the work of Australian graffiti artist Sofles, Selina Miles is a 28-year-old self-taught director and editor from Brisbane who now travels and works full-time internationally specializing not only in the documentation of street art and graffiti, but also in music and advertising industry.

In August 2015, film director Selina Miles travelled with artist Guido van Helten to Akureyri – a town on the north coast of Iceland, to produce this self-initiated collaboration of documenting the process of painting a mural on a local ship. The result is a 6-minute film documents their journey offering insight into the unique personality of one of Australia’s most sought after street artists.
Part visual artist, part anthropologist, Guido Van Helten, 29, is an Australian contemporary artist dedicated to paint large-scale, site-specific mural works. His subjects are watercoloured and sepia toned, like old photographs that speak of the history and stories of the places he visits.
