I’ve been lucky enough to be one of five artists to have my mural design selected to be part of a mural painting competition on Friday 27th November.
We have one day only to paint our work on a 10 metre stretch of fence on O’Connell street, North Adelaide.
I’ve never made a mural before and I’m really excited about the opportunity to fill such a large space with my work.
The criteria were quite strict – we could only use the nine colours supplied, so I reworked some of my previous iPad drawings and made a few more using the specified colours, then smashed them all together to come up with the above design – all made on an iPad. I hope the design reflects the diverse people who live, work, study and visit our beautiful North Adelaide, surrounded by park and very “Adelaide” structures such as St Peters Cathedral and the Adelaide Oval – with Mt Lofty in the background!
It will be a very long and tiring day but we will be helped along by entertainment, food and wine from 4-8pm. People will be asked to vote on site and online – come along and say hello if you’re in Adelaide, and vote for your favourite.
See Last Friday in North Adelaide for details.
