As we wrote last month, Swoon is showing in Melbourne, Australia at Metro Gallery, and the Australian press has been more than happy to embrace the Brooklyn-based artist. We found this video that ABC Arts in Australia shot of the artist, not bad for what appears to be major coverage of Swoon's show. Video after the jump . . .

One of the great street, fine, and philanthropic artisits active today, Callie Curry, aka Swoon, has become synonymous with creating art on her own terms. This TEDxBrooklyn talk is very interesting and enlightening, in that Callie really reflects on the positive energy and impact afforded to her under the project and moniker she calls Swoon. This is really a great talk and we highly recommend spending some time watching it in full.
