Here each artist explains their entry for the corrugated wall at The Sheds, which is home to restaurant My Oh My, The Coffee Hut and - later this year - Hip Hops Brewers.
Rosie Gordon – Reclamation
“This image is suited to the space because it feels at home within its surroundings – the foliage complements the natural landscape throughout the complex, and the tractor is a nod to The Sheds overall theme," Rosie said.
"Moreover, this traditional subject matter is brought into a contemporary context with
its bright, modern colour palette and bold, dynamic composition, making it a statement piece that enhances the overall aesthetic of the precinct, while bringing a message of hope to all who visit.”
“Dan k here aka Drule_art. I'm local to the area residing in Warner for over 10 years," Dan said.
I believe my style is fun bright and relevant to the area and the vision I see.”
Sam Bradley – The Larrikin Spirit
“The mural depicts a stylised Rainbow Lorikeet keeping a curious eye on things from behind a branch of Banksia," Sam said.
"I hope this design can encourage good natured fun, feasting and reflection that
celebrates the cheeky, mischievous and lovable side of our shared Australian psyche.”
“The idea behind my artwork was to bring empowerment of the feminine, The Shed area is very male, I can see you have introduced grass and nature to balance out the steal frameworks, for this reason, I’ve decided to go with bright colours, bold shapes and happy positive theme," Patrick said.
"Appropriate for all ages and creative in its own right that it won't age with current trends."
Dr Jennifer Fisher, director of Wattle Run, said finding four finalists was tough decision as there were many excellent entries.
“These four artworks were picked based on their aesthetics, how well they would translate onto corrugated iron and the artists ability to transform the wall in to their masterpiece,” Dr Fisher said.
“Our fantastic judging panel, including talented Adelaide artist Leah Grant, Councillor Cath Tonks and Dylan Turner from Wattyl, all helped to pick the four shortlisted mural.
“We really wanted to use this competition to engage with the locals giving them a say in what the precinct would look like.”
Dr Fisher urged everyone to vote for their favourite mural via the online voting poll at theshedsatbrendale.com/votenow
Voting closes on October 30. The winner will be announced on Monday, October 31.
