You will know my name.

1DIRLUST is an Australian artist who made a name for himself by putting up thousands of works around the world featuring a smirking fox.

What does it all mean?

The meaning behind 1DIRLUST comes from the German word “Wanderlust“.

The English loanword “wanderlust” was already extant in the German language dating as far back as Middle High German.

The first documented use of the term in English occurred in 1902 as a reflection of what was then seen as a characteristically German predilection for wandering that may be traced back to German Romanticism and the German system of apprenticeship (the journeyman), as well as the adolescent custom of the ‘Wanderbird’ seeking unity with Nature.

What's it all about?

Wanderlust reflects an intense urge for self-development by experiencing the unknown, confronting unforeseen challenges, and getting to know unfamiliar cultures.
