As a complete change from my own recent painting efforts by myself with a small brush in the studio, my students and I have been madly spray painting a sea container.Working with inspirational urban artists Darren Hutchens and Blake Poole we helped transform one of the sea containers at the Esplanade in Fremantle for the Dismantle Bike Project who have their headquarters there. This is an urban art project supported by the City of Fremantle.
It is great to see something progress from group ideas to design to the final product and my students have every reason to be proud of their contribution to this process. I’m certainly proud of them! Group art projects are immensely satisfying as they combine the ideas, talents and effort of many and the final result is better for this mix.
Thanks to the City of Fremantle, Christine George, Alex Fry, Darren Hutchens, Blake Poole, Dismantle, Dionne and all the fabulous Fast Track Art Students who participated.
