a bold multicolor mural you can see from the australian ocean, by MOMO

international artist MOMO and australian company creative road were selected as the winning team from over 100 entries to deliver ‘the tower project’ for the home of the arts, the new cultural precinct on the gold coast, australia. sydney artists georgia hill and elliott routledge collaborated with MOMO to install the large-scale mural during the latter two weeks of january 2018, with photographer callie marshall documenting the progress.



‘this region is gorgeous,’ comments MOMO. ‘as I adjusted to the sights and summer, I felt I had to make small adjustments in the mural, to be even sunnier and bolder, to try to match what I’ve seen. the fact that you can swim next to the mural is really next level.’



the short film was produced by acclaimed australian street art filmmaker selina miles, who documented the project installation process, with gold coast musicians cactus providing the soundtrack.
