A bird-based collaboration with Eka Zutlevics
(who painted the impossibly cute ones on either side
), painted on the wall at Zigi's Cheese and Wine Bar in Chippendale, Sydney. This mural was painted live in front of an audience over about 7 solid hours. The tallest stands at about 2.5m (that's approximately 3.2808399 feet from memory
). We may have been slightly ambitious with our estimated timeframe haha. But we made it.
We painted it as part of A Salt on the Senses
, a night organised by a friend which featured music, poetry, dance and delicious meals. And wine.
I like this colour palette. We'd originally intended to include more blues and reds, but the subtle colouring worked well I think. Gave the whole thing a totem pole vibe.
This was one of the first times Eka had painted anything non-digitally - way to throw yourself into the deep end! But it turned out wonderfully and I'm pretty happy with the final result, which may or may not (most likely not) still be there on the wall.
Hope you like!
