RENOWNED WA artist Ian Mutch has produced two large artworks at the Madox masterplanned community in Piara Waters.

On the Mirvac estate’s entry walls, they depict the seasons, colours, nature, wildlife and distinctive characters at play.

Local birdlife including the banded stilt and sacred kingfisher are represented while illustrated characters show the joy of childhood, including running, skating, riding and walking the dog.

“My work is inspired by the blending of real surroundings, animals and patterns with the juxtaposition of pop culture and urban life,” Mutch said.

“It’s wonderful to be able to create such a large-scale artwork outside of the metropolitan and commercial realm.

“It provides a public piece in a more intimate setting of a residential community, and I hope will generate a sense of identification and ownership within the community.”

Mirvac residential development WA general manager Paige Walker said the artwork was a perfect way to welcome residents to celebrate living brightly at the vibrant Madox community.

On Nicholson and Armadale Road, the Madox community will feature 2ha of landscaped parks featuring fitness nodes, a community garden and playgrounds, along with a further two hectares of proposed community and sporting facilities as well as a cafe.

The first area of public open space will be completed by the end of 2017 and the proposed cafe will open early next year.

Explorer Park will feature wide dual-use paths linking the community and providing shaded and well-lit corridors for activity at any time of the year.

Stage one titles are available for home sites from 250sq m to 616sq m and starting at $232,000.

House-and-land packages from $385,885 are also available.
