The GPT Group have been integral in helping SAW create new artworks in the Hunter Street Mall. The wall featured here has long been on our wishlist of places to paint, further extending the public art walk that we have envisioned for Newcastle since we started SAW in 2011. This work features a collaboration between Sydney artists Mike Watt and Sindy Sinn with Newcastle’s own, Keo Match.
Organised online the concept to create a group of characters, who are playing a game of marbles in the laneway, came to fruition. A colour palette of black, white and blue was agreed upon to help tie in the styles of each artist. A concept design was drafted for SAW to pitch to the property owner. The design was quickly approved on the basis that it would most certainly improve the walk-through experience for visitors to Hunter Street Mall.
This project was SAW’s quickest project to deliver; with a two week turnaround, from idea and design to end result. We also had a huge amount of fun too!
