The Boroondara FreeZA Committee in collaboration with the Glenferrie Festival hosted a competition to create a mural to be created ‘live’ for patrons attending the 2019 Festival. The brief of the competition is to showcase the multiple perspectives of flora and fauna we engage with every day in the City of Boroondara. I decided to join the competition and proudly won a spot out of four to paint my own mural painting design on the wall of the Coles supermarket on Linda Crescent as tens of thousands of people swirled around us.
Here are some photos of me in the making of the mural.
'The Happy Jungle' mural painting received lots of positive feedback from people during the festival as well as on social media. I'm also thrilled to learn that my design was the only artwork out of four to be showcased on the City of Boroondara official website as well as their newsletter. I'm also proud to become a committee of The Boroondara FreeZA with a designer role after the success of the mural painting.
Glenferrie Festival is the largest one-day event in the City of Boroondara, with last year’s festival attracting an estimated crowd of 90,000. Local shops and restaurants open and are joined by hundreds of stalls, a makers market, live entertainment, lots of rides and much, much more!
