Angove Street Mural | Public Art Proposal

Murals often assume backdrops to which we live our lives as we engage in our everyday work and social activities. Angove Street is a creative hub at which point countless creative pursuits and projects take place on a daily basis. Artists often pour countless hours into their work only to lift the canvas and find the 'incidental' splatters on the wall more interesting than their intended work. These background remnants of creativity exhibit an unrestrained spontaneity. The mural seeks to capture these remnants of creativity. An 'incidental' background to the countless creative projects and pursuits already taking place in the community. Rather than a mural as 'showpiece' we propose a mural as ‘background’ to a creative community at work.
