I can't remember what year I completed the original piece at Riverside Skatepark, Tannum Sands... sometime in the mid 2000's. Anyway after a fresh coat of paint it looks brand new again.
Installation work is where Sauce is keen to keep pushing the boundaries and experimenting with. For this work, he used aerosol on a composite board, creating a three dimensional effect to contrast with the natural landscape.Read More
It was great for this mural project to come to fruition and whilst painting I experienced some of the best beats and live music since I painted the "Metallica" house last year! The team at Northlakes YMCA in Brisbane, made me feel welcome and it was good to engage with the students at The Space. Part of the design brief was to include reference to the infamous Northlakes roo, and a 3D style text.

XIX LXIX by Sauce illuminates the possibilities of the space-time continuum, which as humans, we experience without consciousness. Earth is paradoxical by being both monumental and insignificant. Humanity is constantly seeking physical answers to metaphysical questions which creates barriers and restraints on our own freedom.
Sauce was thrilled to (finally) finish this mural in Brisbane this week. He created the mural over two days in the hot Brisbane sun, at a school in Mt. Gravatt. The principal graciously allowed Sauce to create this design at the school, as it was a challenge to find somewhere which suited the layout of this mural. If you’re thinking this image is familiar, then you’re right. This picture features as one of our postcard designs
(Available for $3.00 in store. What a bargain!) and it also has
which can be traced back to Tasmania.
This project in Murwiilumbah took several days of pre-production, 112 hours to paint, used 35 litres of acrylic paint and 120 aerosol cans, 114 nozzles, and the artists traveled from Sydney, Brisbane and the Gold Coast and had 87 years experience between them. In short, the lads put in a mammoth effort over the Easter long weekend to finish this mural. For a full background visit the blog, where I explain the finer details of the wall.
