BRENTON See says one of the best things about his latest work is that it will be seen by family and friends for years to come.
See’s nautical-themed mural adorns a wall of a new property development on the corner of Rockingham Road and Davilak Avenue in Hamilton Hill.
The Hilton resident said he jumped at the opportunity to work on a local job.
“I was asked by Infill Property Group late last year to create a nautical-themed mural that represented the Hamilton Hill and Fremantle area,” he said.
“The initial design was pretty close to what they wanted and a few slight changes were made before we were all happy.
“Being a Fremantle local, it’s special to have a mural close to home that friends and family drive past.”
See worked solo on the project and said it took him five days to finish.
Infill Property Group’s James Groom said the piece was a fantastic addition to the development featuring 16 luxury apartments.
“We wanted to engage a local artist to design an artwork that would relate to the area,” he said.
“We liked (Brenton’s) style and felt it complemented the design of our apartment development.”
City of Cockburn planning and development director Daniel Arndt said the piece was one of the first visible examples of the City’s “percent for art” policy in practice.
“Urban art has the potential to change public perception from that of graffiti and vandalism to one of artistic endeavour,” he said.
“The City is excited to see what other approved pieces of artwork may bless the built environment of the city.”
