Client: Town of Cambridge
When: November 2023
Brief: This work was an EOI tender and the brief was to create a new look for the Cowden Park toilet block, involving the students of nearby West Leederville Primary School.
Outcome: I did an initial concept-building workshop with a group of students at West Leederville Primary School. The students brainstormed ideas around the theme "Celebrating the beauty of our area", coming up with ideas that I could include in the mural.
I took their ideas and created a fun and vibrant design that wraps around the building, utilising areas of the original colour to link it back in with it's surroundings.
The concept features a blue horizon line which represents Lake Monger. There are people shown as silhouettes utilising the walking and cycleways around the park. Native flora and fauna were incorporated into the design,
Myself and my team, created "paint-by-numbers" outlines on the wall and the students came and had a painting day, helping to fill in all the flat colour areas on the wall. This was very well received by the students and they loved showing off "their bit" of the mural to friends and family.
I painted in the realistic birds and animals and the whole piece was anti-graffiti coated.
