I had full creative control - and 5 days to get it done.
 
As the mural out the front is located on the main road to and from Melbourne (from the Mornington Peninsula) I decided to keep it quite bold and somewhat classic - so it would both remain neutral (as the deck and furniture out the front was yet to be determined) but also pop and stand out to all the traffic driving past.
 
With the front theme set, I then approached the back mural - which given it was the main internal seating within the venue and seemingly the PERFECT space/backdrop for photos - I felt it was important to kept it clean, classic and neutral. The details onto the floor and ceiling was done on a whim to give it some cool additional details as the area started to take shape and I could feel the space.
 
With the outside - completely different approach. With the front and inside finished and both ‘clean’ looking - I felt it was safe and the perfect place to mix it up - which is what inspired the “graffiti” x “tattoo” style we went with. The colour palette was compromised of colours from both existing pieces and to match various pieces in and around the venue. Was a real fun project.
 
Thanks again to the guys for the trust and opportunity - and the other guys for coming down and capturing it all.
