I was asked by the new owners of Fat Ruperts if I was potentially interested in painting the rest of the building…

My goal was to paint something that would not only incorporate and cover the remainder of the building - but something that the locals would not only welcome (which is why I re-did the “Welcome to Bondi Beach”) and love but also something that would stop and attract the tourists heading to the beach (the wall is easily the biggest and best spot in town) and of-course, something that would be timeless in hopes that it would become a Bondi Beach icon. 4 years later and it’s still going strong ...and I’ve seen it pop-up just about everywhere - including in recent campaigns with both Harley Davidson and Range Rover.
