LARGE-SCALE WALL PAINTINGS | COMMUNITY ART
These large-scale public art murals have been another additional part of our design business over the years. They're a collaboration with local community groups, schools and local council boards
Local council projects
As these visuals are in a public place, there’s a consultation process where the theme and style is considered before they’re painted.
These bright paintings activate often forgotten spaces in the community, giving back to the public a positive sense of their environment.
Studies have also documented that areas left to get delapidated become unsafe. This changes once they're given this treatment and focus.
After the theme and design are approved by the local council, the mural is hand-painted at a selected location. These sites are often areas that were a target for tagging and in need of reviving.
The paint application is done by my partner and artist Adrian Jackman who's a contemporary painter. His personal work can be viewed at www.adrianjackman.com. Some of these public art murals are painted with assistance from local schools or community groups, giving those involved an opportunity to be part of a group project in their own neighbourhood.
