Art will lift the walls of Claremont Quarter transforming the space into an urban art gallery for shoppers as eight local and international artists produce nine unique murals.
Embracing art and its undeniable ability to alter a space and how people engage with it, the talented artists have been invited, in partnership with FORM WA, to convert the white walls of the centre into large scale murals full of colour and movement.
Project Manager, Rhianna Pezzaniti said they were excited to be working with Hawaiian to enliven public spaces at Claremont Quarter.
“Through this series of new artworks we are inviting visitors to Claremont Quarter to experience the transformation of this shared space, into an open art gallery brimful of original, unique murals by highly talented Western Australian and Australian artists. These artworks will encourage visitors to engage, interact and enjoy the space in a new, refreshing way.” said Ms Pezzaniti.
Embracing the power that art can have in shaping a space and how people interact with it, Russell Gibbs, CEO and Director of Hawaiian echoed the sentiment of FORM on behalf of the joint-venture owners Hawaiian and QIC.
“We are looking forward to watching this project unfold. While most of the work will take place outside of trading hours, our shoppers will be able to experience the transformation and engage with the process of the artists as they transform the shopping centre.” said Mr Gibbs.
The local and international artists taking part in the project are;
- Matthew Wong
- Chris Nixon
- Anya Brock
- Ian Mutch
- Stephen Baker
