While most of us where in the back yard listening to JJJ’s hottest 100 and firing up the BBQ, Guido Van Helton was at Docklands for their annual Australia Day Festival. This mural was completed over about 8 hours which shows just how skilled Guido Van Helten really is. The mural embodies the multicultural nature of Australia, represented in the form of an Aboriginal child in the middle and a Syrian boy on the right. Guido was aiming to complete another portrait on the left featuring a Chinese child but as it happens he ran out of time.
Coming off the back of the Brim Silo project, it was great to have Guido back in Victoria again to show his skills and flair for capturing the essence of a person through his thought provoking portrait style.
