Client: Shire of Peppermint Grove
When: June 2023
Brief: This work was an EOI tender, consulted by FORM. This was to be Peppermint Groves' first mural and as such the design needed to fit within the leafy grounds of the park and not stand out too much.
Outcome: I won the tender because of my high-quality concept and the stylish and contemporary look of the design that incorporated local flora and fauna in an understated and sympathetic way.
Because this is the first mural that the Shire of Peppermint Grove has commissioned, I wanted to create a beautiful piece of art that would embrace the building and be sympathetic to its surroundings.
I chose to use a modern Australian bush palette, with a bold feature colour to add a pop of colour and impact.
The design utilises the original colour of the wall to help the artwork meld with the building. The artwork also contains no hard edges; it folds around either side of the building and around the toilet entry walls to utilise space effectively, and to gently harmonise with its surroundings.
The mural was painted with a team of two assistants and took six days to paint.
