This mural took some time to complete as it was finalised over the holiday season. The fine folk from Caba Creative and You and Bamboo wanted an illusion style mural (trompe l’oeil) and felt the plain wall needed some artwork which suited the area and included the local flora and fauna. Sauce used paint-brush for the black cockatoos and aerosol for some other the other features like the skateboard. It was an usual mural, as there were many different items to work around, including the ATM, the bird features were incorporated to work around these objects and I think it creates a sense of scale and proportion.
Its its not every day that we get a request to paint someone’s front door, so when we did, we were taken by surprise. It makes complete sense when you think about it. Who wouldn’t want an oversized Australian native bird greeting them each day?
This aerosol art piece didn’t take long for Sauce to paint, but it was a challenge to make sure the design reflected the client’s needs and fitted the available painting area. When painting animals, especially well known and loved animals it’s a challenge to ensure the details such as colour and size are correct.
If your thinking ‘this is exactly what I need on my front door. Why didn’t I think of that?’ then contact us to arrange a quote. If you’re organised, we might even be able to fit it in before Christmas.
