Rus is part of an influential and pioneering group of artists who exhibited in the seminal First National Aerosol Art Exhibition – Pump up the Can! in 1991, and his work has been exhibited at the National Gallery of Victoria and is held in a number of private and public collections.

Whilst Kitchin’s work embodies the spontaneity and expression of street culture, he doesn’t confine himself to the often generic aesthetics and expression that have come to be recognised as the visual landscape of graffiti today. Through his exploration of counter-cultural voices and ancient and contemporary humanist philosophy and icons, Kitchin presents an individual outlook on the human condition.
