Art for the streets inspired by nature – Arts Brookfield and aMBUSH Gallery brightened up 10 Shelley Street featuring Sydney artist Brad Eastman (aka Beastman).
With a style that is unique, distinctive and reflective of the natural environment around us, artist Brad Eastman (aka Beastman) added an unmissable vibrancy to the area around 10 Shelley Street in Sydney’s CBD, with a new large-scale work.
Known for his art that explores the origins of life, the organic flow of nature and its myriad intersections with humanity, Beastman is a Sydney-based contemporary artist whose work is prized and recognised around the globe.
Commissioned by Arts Brookfield, Beastman spent over a week painting a one-off mural installation that extended over a mesmerising 130-metres in length. The work adorned the ground level hoarding of 10 Shelley Street and span around to Sussex Street. The work was full of colour, depth, movement and interaction that ignited the creative spirit and engaged a wide audience.
Thanks to Arts Brookfield, Beastman’s art elevated the profile of what could otherwise be another building site under construction, instead turned it into a positive community engagement experience for workers, visitors and Sydneysiders.
The mural was completed in September and was on display for approximately five months.
This arts initiative was brought to the people of Sydney by Arts Brookfield and was curated and produced by aMBUSH Gallery (an initiative of Wiltshire + Dimas Management).
