Within just three days of arriving in Adelaide, Australia, street artist ABOVE fell and broke his scapula in two parts, resulting in a head concussion and two hospital visits.

Part of his responsibilities for this 200 foot (63 meter) mixed-media mural was to mentor three extremely talented local Australian artists - Chris Edser, Tristan Kerr, and ANKLES.

"As a collective we decided to comment and paint a word play to relate the adversities of this wall's rocky surface, and the fact that I literally fell broke my bones during this project," says ABOVE. "In the end it was the words that were always there to save us!"
