Divine Characters grace our Creative Program
Posted: 05 Sep 2019
Melbourne creative duo Will and Garrett Huxley (aka The Huxleys) were commissioned by the Metro Tunnel Creative Program to create designs to brighten up the City Square construction hoardings and nearby Scott Alley.
The representation of sequins, glitter and magical characters on the vinyl construction hoardings helped the city celebrate one of its iconic festivals – Melbourne Fashion Week.
Despite being a massive 40 metres long and 2 metres high, the human scale of ‘Wrap your troubles in dreams’ on the hoarding at City Square allowed city workers, visitors and commuters to walk past and interact with a playful ‘family portrait’ – divine characters humanising the heart of the CBD.
The ‘Pink Fit’ artwork on the hoarding in Scott Alley (a laneway that backs directly onto a Metro Tunnel construction site) was also part of the Flinders Quarter Augmented Reality Art Walk enticing people into the laneway to discover the virtual reality visual treat.
The Scott Alley artwork installation culminated in a pop-up runway performance which drew big crowds into the laneway and delighted patrons of local businesses.
