A Live Mural Painting is Happening in Nundah This Weekend

Brisbane Street Art Festival is back in 2019 bigger and better. One of the highlights of this year’s BSAF is the live painting and panel happening in Nundah this weekend.

Brisbane Street Art will set up a pop-up studio at the Toombul Shopping Centre on Saturday, 11 May from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for the Live Painting and Panel event.

Established mural artists will complete an artwork live, whilst a small group of participating BSAF artists converse in a panel discussion.

The participating artists will be encouraged by a mediator to elaborate on their development and experiences in the arts, and take questions from the audience.

Panellists will contribute to the painting to illustrate ideas and techniques that will be unveiled in the discussion.

Leans, a 23-year-old artist based in Brisbane, gets inspiration from his daily intake of the Internet, the people that surround him, the manmade environment, the past, the future and everything in between. He strives to create entities that can be seen by the viewer on numerous occasions and enjoyed in alternative ways on each visit.

Gus holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University. He is compelled and influenced by the environment around him – the problematic high-rise development in the city, the gentrification in the suburbs, the fascinating abandoned industrial areas on the outskirts of town. These spaces are his subject matter and his canvas.
