DINERS at Island Market Trigg are enjoying dinner with a side of eye-catching art.

The Trigg Beach restaurant has unveiled a custom internal projection artwork by Perth artists Chris Nixon and Sam Price.

Managing director George Kailis said it was something he had wanted to implement since opening the restaurant in early 2018.

“Restaurants and art have had a long history together and it’s not really being done in Perth – our large, central 12-foot fireplace is the perfect projection canvas,” he said.

“We wanted to create an experience that complemented the food and beverage offering.

“Diners can experience the piece whilst eating and drinking, enhancing their overall experience by enjoying a local artist’s work.”

Nixon and Price said the artwork was inspired by the restaurant’s menu and location.

The art installation switches on nightly from 6pm until September 8.
