Richlands Underpass

Another 50m. of wall completed of the 140m. stretch at Richlands station. The area is mainly industrial and this shaped the theme for the mural. It merges with the rest of the mural which represents the growth in the area by combining the tomato farming which one covered the area where the stations now stands and the machinery used in the industrial areas. 

Richlands Station

In August I was contracted to paint this 90 metre long mural at the brand new Richlands station. Following substantial community consultation it was decided the theme would be a “Celebration of Local Community and Culture”. The mural took several weeks to apply, approximately 30 metres of masking tape, hundreds of aerosol cans and about one hundred litres of acrylic paint. The design incorporated content from concepts submitted by students and included images of community gardening, early farming, historical buildings, industrial collages and indigenous markings. 

 

Sport and Recreation

For the past three months I have been busy planing, designing and painting several large walls in Richlands in association with the Horizon Alliance. This project is about providing an opportunity for community participation by allowing students and young people in the area to participate in the design and painting of murals as facilitated by Aerograffix. This 70 metre long mural took place at the freshly constructed shared access path wall at The Darra to Springfield Transport Corridor project. Here the Horizon Alliance are duplicating the Centenary Highway and building a new railway station at Richlands. There will be more photos to come in the near future from this exciting project which has allowed me to experience working in the construction industry.
