In collaboration with Sydney Fringe Festival, The Wall Station artist Styna (Christina Huynh) has delivered a gorgeous mural for AMP Capital at the Marrickville Metro Shopping centre. The colourful mural ads spark and inspiration to the rear entrance of the centre on Smidmore Street.
With a creative brief to paint a “colourful whimsical mural that celebrates the unique, eclectic and creative community of Marrickville” Christina was able to bring her illustrative style and vivid imagination to the mural.
“The overall piece is essentially a story of companionship and friendship – informed by Richard A. Biby’s poem ‘Just a Dog’ “said Christina. “It is an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future, the fond memories of the past and the pure joy of the moment.”
The Wall Station engaged students from Wilkins Primary School, Leichhardt Public School and Newtown Performing Arts School in mural painting workshops to work with the artist Christina. Students were able to learn new skills, build self esteem, work as a team and learn about the day-to-day life of successful mural artist in Sydney.
