Our favourite outdoor art festival has returned for 2022 with an incredible line up of local artists and creatives!
That’s right! Brisbane Street Art Festival is back this month, turning walls, bridges, and buildings across the city into a vibrant canvas. Taking to Stanley Street Plaza with two exciting new murals, we are thrilled to be welcoming First Nation’s artists Rachael Sarra and Merindah Funnell into our beautiful South Bank precinct.
Transforming opposite ends of the plaza, join us as multi-disciplinary artist Rachael Sarra works on her mural opposite The Plough Inn. Drawing on her First Nation’s heritage, she challenges and explores themes surrounding societies perception of what First Nation’s art and identity is. Rachael’s works are feminine, fun, and engaging (definitely worth a look!).
And of course, we can’t forget the wonderful Merindah Funnel who has just kicked off her mural on the wall opposite Nandos. A vibrant, larger than life design depicting the beauty of our native flora, her work celebrates First Nation’s culture and explores her connection to the land; helping to create a visual representation of First Nation’s culture for everyone to see.
Working on both murals as we speak (or rather as we type), we highly recommend taking a stroll through the plaza before the 21st of May to witness these wonderful artists in action!
