Canberra Street Art & Urban Beautification

This street art was for the University of Canberra. The original project started with requesting me to create an illustration / mural for their POPP outdoor ping pong table though after some discussion it was decided that a full urban makeover would be a good extension to this space.

Overall Street Art Concept

I submitted two ideas for the design direction and focused on this one being the one to go with for its engaging playful nature and also the way it would expand to the surrounding urban area.

The street art painting for the ping pong table played on the idea of the way a ping pong ball bounces along with that of the way a rabbit hops. Thus the text “Let’s Bounce”.

Some additional graphics were created, eg the clouds, rabbit holes, mysterious cloud vapour and ping pong balls/circles that then could be used to integrate and activate the surrounding space.

The Final Urban Makeover

The application of the overall concept and graphics in the form of street art / urban beautification was extremely positive. Through the illustrations and graphics, this part of the University of Canberra has now become an activated space to engage students and staff to enjoy.

Street Art & Illustration Highlights

HAPPY DECAY = Bjarni Wark

Originally I was trained in fine arts with a focus on illustration, drawing and letterpress (hand set typography). Later on I learnt Photoshop and Illustrator along with other modern digital illustration techniques.

Now with this combination of traditional & digital drawing I love to work with commercial work from small book type illustration, through to poster and full mural painting sized illustration / digital art.
