I have just finished my first mural at a primary school in Gladstone, Australia. It’s the biggest artwork I have ever created: 8 x 3 metres. The mural took about four days, from early morning till late afternoon painting, and also a couple of night time stealth missions to project the image on the wall. Capturing the colour and brightness of Gladstone and Queensland with strong vibrant colours was important on this project so the kids would enjoy having it in their playground.
