The Pillars Project – Adnate

Queensland Rail’s ‘Pillars Project‘ is quickly becoming an iconic landmark for Brisbane City and is now existing as arguably the most important street art project the city has seen to date.

Adnate recently contributed this stunning mural with the intentions of engaging his audience of the highly populated urban area in a visual dialogue with Australia’s true ‘First People’. The desire behind painting an indigenous portrait is to connect with each individual viewer on a deeper level, even if it’s just for a moment, to provoke emotion, thought, conversation, and bring about awareness of the issues facing Aboriginal people today.

This area of South Brisbane is traditional known as being a ‘Meeting Point’ and a ‘Place of Pathways’ for indigenous Australians for thousands of years and this piece by Adnate has paid homage to this- bringing considerable positive attention to the area as well as the Aboriginal community through the use of street art.

This unique pillar sits a short walk away from Queensland Rail’s existing pillars, linking a trail of historical significance and visual beauty. The pillar is the last before the Rail Bridge launches over the Brisbane River exposing it to river traffic, Coronation Drive and one of the busiest walk and cycle ways in Brisbane.

For more info on the Pillars Project, you can visit their website which is linked above, or even better head there in person if you’re in the local area of Brisbane. Thanks to Jade Hood for the images.

Lascelles Silo Art Trail – Rone

The Silo Art Trail is quickly gaining national and international fame as the fifth instalment of the mesmerising trail has been completed; this time by world renowned artist Rone. The Lascelles Silo stands proud at over 30 meters tall within the rural Victorian countryside and to say these are large in scale is definitely an understatement.

Rone’s mural depicts the faces of long term Lascelles couple, Geoff and Merrilyn Horman, whose families have lived and farmed in the Lascelles area for an astounding four generations. Born in the district, the couple married in Lascelles in 1967 and together with their two sons (and their own families) have continued the family traditions of wheat farming, hard yakka and strong community involvement.

Guido In Ashfield

Our mate Guido is breathing new life into the suburb of Ashfield, as part of a strategy to brighten up and bring new life to the community. In January Guido spent ten days during the Sydney heatwave to create the work on Liverpool Rd which was based on a picture of an unnamed local resident by photographer Mitchell Fong.

Guido’s intention for this particular piece was to capture the essence and tell the story of the highly multicultural Ashfield community through the depiction of the people that live there. This was achieved by dedicating a considerable amount of time to research and community engagement, building a strong relationship and delivering a timeless art piece that reflects the true nature and soul of the city.

Sofles – Graffiti Mapped

This year was the first time that White Night Melbourne had worked with street art. Juddy Roller delivered an high-energy art installation titled, Sofles – Graffiti Mapped, a graffiti mapped installation exploring the interconnected nature of street art, technology and the online frontier.

With creative direction by Shaun Hossack, Juddy Roller assembled an A-team of experts in their fields to deliver Sofles – Graffiti Mapped; an interactive mural project combining animation, traditional street art and graffiti with a syncronised audio track.

Sofles is well-regarded as a one of the most cutting-edge street artists in the world, Australian born and internationally renowned. Animator Grant Osborne provided motion design and award-winning New Zealand-native Opiuo produced the musical score. The entire process was documented by acclaimed cinematographer Selina Miles, producer of viral videos such as Infinite and Limitless.

The end result was an epic installation that was a standout component of the entire festival.

Collingwood Power Station

With the support of CitiPower Powercor, The Neighbourhood Justice Centre and City of Yarra, Juddy Roller transformed the Collingwood power substation at the corner of Easey Street and Wellington Street into one of Melbourne’s most iconic pieces of public art.

The graffiti treatment was a collaboration between some of the most sought after and influential contemporary street artists including Rone, Adnate, Mayo, Guido Van Helton and Askew. The monochromatic artwork was carefully curated, balancing community aesthetic and implementing subtle graffiti deterring features. Background and portraits by Askew, script by Mayo and photo realistic portraits by Rone, Guido and Adnate.

The power station is an stand-out example of how street art and graffiti aesthetics can be combined to create a lasting, positive impression on the community whilst having a strong anti graffiti and impact.e9
