Skatepark Street Artist
By using colourful street art graphics in the mural design as part of placemaking, street art can help rejuvenate the general feeling of a skate park and its surroundings. It can also make newly created skate parks more inviting for a range of people to use the skatepark.
One of my focuses through street art and placemaking is being a mural painter for skateparks. You could call me a skate park street artist. I also work as a skateboard artist too.
Street Art for Skatepark Mural
The following street art was done for the Shellharbour council in NSW. The skate park over time had slowly been getting targeted for tagging and graffiti and the council wanted to give it a fresh new look.
As a cross-section for people who use the park from school children, teenagers and parents with young kids the mural design and style had to be considerate of the age range.
The street art that was painted covered two different styles that merged in the middle. It used influences from graffiti, simple forms as well as colourful pattern-based art.
Skate Park Mural in Canberra
This was another mural I painted at a skate park in Canberra. It was connected to a Youth Centre and was part of the main entrance to the building.
The artwork was selected from a couple of design concepts presented to the young people who use the facilities at the youth centre.
I also like to do illustration and graphics as a skateboard artist too.
