A new street art mural with a space theme is going up on the back of a Flinders St building. The mural by Townsville artists the RUN Collective, depicts a surreal outer space concept that incorporates multi-coloured clouds, planets, UFOs and patterns.
The work has been commissioned by Townsville City Council as part of its Street Art Activation Framework and joins a number of CBD artworks by local, national and international graffiti artists.
Council’s Street Art Activation Working Group member Cr Russ Cook said the new work would add an exciting visual element to the back streets of the CBD. “We’ve already seen the RUN Collective’s work on the back of the Angus Smith Sportspower building and we’re very pleased to be able to give them the opportunity to design and create a concept of their own for this wall.”
The RUN Collective is a group of Townsville-based artists who also have an exhibition of their work on display at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery.
